Shots in the dark are still waiting to land. Insurance reconsidered the bill, so they really do owe us money, so that’ll help pay other bills. Another friend considering hiring me for web design. And the gift of a blender from someone who found she did not need to keep hers. A decent week, all in all.

I’ve felt rather fidgety all week. The weather won’t make up its mind if it is spring or not yet. Yesterday, most of all. It went from 70 degrees and sunny, to windy and overcast with tornado watches, to pouring down rain, to hailing, back to 70 degrees and sunny and then down to freezing and snow. I feel like that, too. I’m on the verge of new beginnings, but I keep going backwards or round in circles, not quite ready to take that last, fully committed step into Spring. I still have the lethargy of winter hibernation tugging at me, whispering sweet dreams in my ears, if only I’d lay back down.

So much to do, so little time. I have to wake up now and get moving. Set deadlines, meet goals, create the life I want to live. All that stuff I keep talking about. Time to Do.

Oops. I just noticed I didn’t post last week. Sorry about that, dear readers, I imagine it was a busy day and then the weekend swept me away.  I had a terribly productive week last week. I started attacking our Junk Closet, I did a lot of house cleaning, including fixing our vacuum enough to do a bit of sweeping. Friends have given us their old, fully working vacuum this week, so thank you to them. I cleaned out both my desk areas and sent off checks to pay state and local taxes. I emptied our trading account for the time being, until we can afford to play that game again. And I bought groceries for the month… or so.

This week I started creating an outline of a budgeting class for friends who’ve asked me for advice. Sent it to my Mom and got some very useful feedback. Anyone who is interested should let me know if I haven’t already contacted you with details.

Work is work, and the managers find new and interesting ways to torment us. All in the name of productivity. I’ve got two zone maintenance shifts this week, though, so I’m feeling pretty good.

Going to relax with friends in Cleveland this weekend – my official March zag day.  Pondering putting a good blender on my Amazon list – with fruit added into my diet, smoothies are sounding better and better. Especially as my frozen blueberries didn’t turn out nearly as tasty as I had hoped.

Health is doing alright. It could be better, but I think I’d have to get rid of a bunch of stress first. Working on it, bit by bit.

Life is wonderful. I am grateful every day for what I have.
