Had a nice Sunday visiting my brother, sister in law and the kids. Played several card games and read some Ninjago to the belated birthday boy. We even took a walk to see a backhoe and rode bikes and played on the swings. A very nice day out, though still a little chilly for me.

Found a couple more copywriting jobs and a web job to apply to this week as well. Inventory this weekend at the store, so staying busy getting ready for that. Not going to make the fleet party this weekend, but two more the next two weeks will make up for that.

Spring soon, but still quite chilly this week. A bit of snow here and there as well, but nothing like the storm last week. Looking forward to warm.

February is just about done. Still looking for a new job. Applied to some copywriting jobs this week. Waiting to hear back from a lot of different places. In the meantime, work is giving me a lot of hours, so that’s helpful. Rich’s benefits should kick in tomorrow, as well, so that’ll help, too.

Had fun this past weekend with college friends, and new friends. A housewarming party and lots of hanging out. It was nice to go to a party and not have responsibilities, good fun. This month is full of fleet parties, a baby shower and a birthday party or two. Lots of fun weekends ahead.

New desserts at the store are not helping me get back on track with eating healthy. But they are so tasty. Had the Toasted S’more today. Mmmmm! 🙂

One week in and the parties and activities are lining up. I can’t possibly go to all of them, probably won’t make it to half of them, and I don’t even have the slightest idea if I’m going to attempt a costume this year. I haven’t really gone in for costumes other than ren fest garb for years now. I’m not very crafty, and I don’t want to spend money on something I’m only going to wear once(wore my prom dress both years). I don’t really dress for Halloween either, not a fan of orange, though, as anyone will tell you, I have plenty of black clothing.

Last week was a big week, not much else has happened since then. Got the surgeon’s office sorted out, for only $5 more than we intended a month. Hospital still not returning calls. Money’s tight by not overwhelmingly so anymore. I took some online editing tests this week. That was oddly entertaining. Did better on editing than proofreading, so I’ve got some studying to do if I really want to make a go at being an editor again.

I want to earn a living by writing, but I’m not experienced in the type of writing that is actually money making – nonfiction, technical, articles, copywriting. I’ve been randomly curious about it off and on, but it seems like I need a different type of education or background to do that kind of thing professionally. Not to mention I did everything I could in school to write stories instead of papers. This, blogging about my life(and previously and currently journaling on paper), is the most non-fiction writing I’ve ever done voluntarily, and my life isn’t really all that interesting to people who don’t know me. I tried to write stories for books like Chicken Soup once, but I didn’t really have any compelling true stories to tell. I love my life, but I don’t think it’s inspiring.

Anyway, things to do, people to see and all that. Until next week. Enjoy life and love each other.
