Friday Wrap-Up

It's been an interesting and fast week for me. I'm so glad that it's Friday, although I still have a lot to do. I'm still working on not doing work/school of any kind, one day a week. It's hard, but necessary. Do any of you find not working on something & taking a break, hard as well?...more

Friday Wrap-Up

Today has been a good day so far. The week didn't start out that great (getting blocked my life, no matter what I did), but keeping optimistic has helped. I had a short chat with a small business association today and came away a little more informed then I was walking in. I'm going back on Monday for an informal workshop to find out more information, brainstorm, etc. It's exciting and I love moving one step closer to "officially" starting my business. Anyway  I have school work, and a business plan to continue working on. Have a great weekend!...more

Book Review: #GIRLBOSS

Some of you may know that I would love to start my own business. Well I'm in the process of doing just that. Just a little blip of redoing one of my courses and finishing my program. In the meantime I'm revving up the business plan, so I'm already in business by the time April 21st rolls around. Now don't get me wrong if Google comes calling or an amazing startup catches my eye, I'm there. I'm all about multiple sources of income. Not because of greed but because of job security in this precarious job market....more

Broken Heart: #2

The week after next, January 19th, will be 3 months since mom died and I think I'm only feeling it now. I'm incredibly sad. I'm tired. I'm empty and I feel as though I have nothing to give, although it seems as though I still am giving. Going through the motions without feeling much of anything but sadness. This is the first week where I'm actually allowing myself to do nothing, since she died and I refuse to feel bad for this little bit of selfishness. Next week, online classes start again, along with getting my business plan started, so I'm reveling in doing nothing....more

Friday Catch Up

This past week has been continued catch up of school work, with an upswing. I'm unofficially finished 1 of my courses, which leaves 5 more to complete. End date is December 16th, and I'm doing my best to finish before then. It's been long days and nights but I'm doing my best to plough through, so I can have one less weight upon my shoulders. Breathing room, or grieving room, which I can not do right now. I need to finish all of my courses with great marks. Passing, no matter how bad the circumstances, is not good enough for me....more

Kai's Annual Vet Visit

It was about a month late this year, but with good reason. She's healthy, although at the top of what her weight should be, 11 lbs. She didn't need any shots, or blood drawn. Her rabies vaccine is good until 2017. I was happy to find out that the rabies vaccine is the only one required for domestic and international flights. A certificate was provided, although I'm going to bring her passport in, closer to when I leave and have the office fill it out....more

Life Continues

and I wish I could put it on hold. I know that's not possible but that's how I feel. I'm kind of on autopilot right now. I'm trying to catch up with my classes, continue with the sale of the house, and deal with all of the tedious estate things that go along with death. I really can not grieve the way that I need to because I have to stay focused on my classes. If I let go now, I don't know if I'll be able to get back up....more

Broken Heart

I will probably write about this chapter in my life again, here or on another platform. I'm sure over the next several months/years I'll have a lot to share. Here is the first one.On October 19th 2014, my mom lost her battle to cancer. It doesn't make sense. I'm heart broken, sad, empty, and angry. My first love is gone and I don't know what to do with myself, other than take life one hour at a time. I can't even do a day at a time quite yet....more
I am sorry for your loss. One day it will be a bit easier, but for now, do what you can when you ...more
