One week down…how many to go?

This week was GREAT! Who knows how often I’m going to get to say that, so I thought I’d put it in bold. I really did like this past week and I’m finding I really like working with numbers and loans etc. And I feel smart and that’s never a bad thing. The guy I work with who is the broker is the most honest guy I’ve ever met in the finance world or just about anywhere except my mom who isn’t a guy so maybe that doesn’t count anyway…. Went and looked at Ford F-150’s today. Loved a dark…

The CURSE of the CAR

dun….dun….dun…..! Our story begins a few months back when our heroine was spending an afternoon conversing with friends. It was an innocent conversation. There was no foreshadowing that day that could have possibly prepared her for her CAR being STOLEN! dun….dun……dun……! And yet, there it wasn’t, right not where she had parked it only scant minutes before. At first she was surprised. Then flabbergasted. Then unsure as she thought she may have parked it somewhere else and just forgot. It happens. After walking up and down the street a few times and looking like a deranged, forgetful idiot (which some…

It's so weird for me…

It’s so weird for me to think that I can wear a pantsuit to work with a semi-low-almost-cleavage-showing blouse, drive my car, vote, live on my own, order my own lawn furniture, own a gun, start my own business, shave my head, wear military fatigues if I so desire but there is a woman in the year 2002 that is going to get stoned to death because she had a baby after she got divorced which means she must have had sex without being married. The man, incidentally, faces no charges because he simply said he wasn’t involved. Well, it’s…

1st day of WORK!

So. I’m a real worker now. How ’bout that? And my title is ‘loan officer’. I sound so…so…official. But today went great and I think I’ll be good at it. Talked to two of my sisters tonight. That’s always fun. They are both trying to think of creative ways to help their little sister over this hard stump of a place while making sure that I’m not feeling like a charity case but still getting the things I need. The cash flow is low so Rhoda is buying some of my paintings. They are about a year old, left over…

new tat

Today I got a new tattoo. I drew it and my girlfriend April put it on my upper right arm. She’s an awesome artist who also tattoos. Soon you’ll be able to view her work from my sight. I’ll include a link when it happens. Learned something about honesty and forthrightness…..you can’t have that kind of relationship unless you both do it. One person making that effort just won’t cut it. It’s got to be a two way street. Keeping my fingers crossed for a loft I went and looked at today. For some reason I picture a loft being…

At my friend's house today in LA.

At my friend’s house today in LA. I’ve missed her. She’s a fellow artist and her work is so powerful! In fact, I’m using one of her pieces as the front cover picture on my book. And I’m trying to figure out how to include a few more of them somewhere inside the book. She doesn’t have a website yet, but one is in the works. We went to a store called Walser’s and it is hands down the best art store I’ve been to in a long time. I’m like a kid in the candy store when I walk…

My kids told me that they don't see me enough…

So. My kids told me that they don’t see me enough and wanted an update more often…hence the BLOG. Generally, I’m not someone who might type my life for the view of my children, let alone strangers. But, here I am. Typing. I found a job. I know, you’re all relieved to hear it. I know I am to have found it. It awaits to be seen, however, if it lives up to all it’s claims. The job has attached to it more hopes than I would have thought possible. The job makes it possible to finally move into the…
