Been working retail for almost a year. Started as seasonal in November and then was given “part-time” status. Thought I wasn’t going to be kept on, but they kept almost everyone that they hired. One person has been with company for 15 years. Good for her! Days are when I love my job, hate my job. Days when I drag my butt to work and tell myself “i can do this” and then I do. Hopefully, I can stay there.
Also been working several volunteer jobs. One is on hold right now while they get their finances in shape. Another is waiting on me to get caught up on projects and another… well not sure how that one will go since I am still working. Then I have birthdays and Christmas coming up. My youngest will be 21 in October. My oldest is 27, my step kids are now in their 30’s. Nieces and nephews are getting married and graduating community college. They are also in their 20’s. My granddaughter is almost 5, step granddaughters are older except for the one born in April.
I have cousins in their 40’s. It is kinda weird to talk about kids that i saw growing up. One woman from my hometown church said her daughter is 47. I remember the daughter when she was about 5.
So I have work, volunteering and my own things. Guess which I don’t get to do too much of??? My own things. I am attempting to think about NaNoWriMo again this year, but not sure how it will work out. Was also going to try to see how many words I could write about nothing, but it doesn’t look that I can even get to 1000.
Healthwise, broke wrist last Feb. and couldn’t use right hand. Now finally not as stiff and sore, although must have hit something on both hands because they are both black and blue. Other health issues, but no flu, bad colds or any other virus that would keep me out of commission for more than a couple of hours. Figured out allergies. Some are getting worse, some better. Weight is more than I would like, but trying not to gain too much more. Would rather try to lose, but enjoy eating and not exercising more.
Finally “passed” Genetics and Evolution (2 tries). Would like to try more, but just don’t have the time. Have too many other things to fit in a day where I work at least 5 hours. (it also means 1 hour prep time and 1/2 hour after just for driving and getting ready). Still doing some teaching.
Everyone talks about the weather. In Wisconsin, we had our coldest day ever in September. A lovely 57 degrees, at least we are not getting the snow that is hitting Montana, South Dakota and Wyoming. We not getting the rain that Iowa, Indiana and Illinois are getting.
I can’t even write 500 words in one sitting about nothing. At least my spelling isn’t too atrocious.
