I hope everyone is having a lovely Easter Weekend!

Things here are status quo. Staying inside except to get food and meds. Going to have to do the food thing again very soon. Even made myself a basic mask.

The launch of chat went well. A few missed chats here and there, as to be expected. We’ll get the hang of it. Most folk even like our new homepage. So, a smooth week overall, and a bit more back to our usual business.

Went to a party over Zoom last weekend. It was fun, and I drank one of the bottles of Coke I’d gotten as donation for a con that was cancelled. I have one more for the camping trip that is also moving online at the end of May. I miss all these events, badly, but I’m glad we are finding alternatives.

This is going to be a cleaning weekend for me. I got dusters and floor sweepers and such. And a whole counter and sink full of dishes. I also made too much chili, so I’m going to have to freeze some of it for later.

Anyway. Have a Happy Easter. Take care of each other and Stay Home if you can.

The worse thing you can do is to do nothing.

The weekend was full of friends and family. Supporting each other, acknowledging each other and sharing with each other. We celebrated triumphs and mourned our losses. We hugged and laughed and cried together. And life keeps going.

Jobs are never stable, no matter what we think. We’re excited for Rich’s new opportunity, but other friends are questioning their “stable” jobs. I’ve worked for the store for over eight years, and this last one has given me the worst number of scheduled hours ever. And though, I would admit to getting more cynical, I do not believe I have become worse at the job.

I haven’t made really good financial choices in the last few years, but we’ve made due with what we’ve had and a lot of things were out of my control. This month, Rich got a better paying job and I found a cheaper apartment to consider moving to.

I’m working on projects and considering my next move. I tried Elance, but got frustrated with the lack of response to my proposals. I had several friends ask for help on webdesign, but then not follow through for various reasons. I applied for my (second) dream job again, with no response. I’m considering checking out the local academic houses, but last I looked, they wanted managers, not editing pool. Retail was never my end game, I’m still trying to figure out what is.

I’m looking to downsize, too, before moving. Sell some things on eBay. I have a rather large collection of Carebears and Carebear Cousins that are just taking up space. I loved them as a child, but find myself less attached and wishing I Sold It on eBay stores still existed. Have collections of the TMNT movie(all three) cards, too, but I don’t think anyone Ever paid real money for those. The weather might still be cold, but I’m infected with Spring Cleaning.
