Kinda quiet in here.

I hope you survived your day of cleaning Mariah.

I hope everyone else had a good day.

Hey UP....I survived. Cleaned 1 unit for 9 hrs (took longer because people were moving in this afternoon & I was working around handyman, dishwasher installer & plumber, who had to turn the water off several times, gotta have water to clean. I over extended mysf by going to another job for 2 1/2 hrs....I will not do that again...8 hrs is a long day...11 1/2, long day. The person needed it done for a showing tomorrow & I did not want to turn it down...she could keep me busy. I will finish it with 7 1/2 hrs Monday.

I have cleaned houses a couple of times in my life. The first time I was 20 years old
Cleaning on a private Island i. Florida for the rich & famous...Johns Island. Later I cleaned for a 5 star resort in Central Oregon, and private homes too. In between my Bartending years, which was too much fun. Have been thinking I could write a colorful memoir really.
Good morning Freein, hi TS, night UP....Dee.

Sounds like a long day. I'm sure it will be worth it in the future.
Did you work on Fantasy Island?

Have a good night everyone.

That was a long day, Mariah. Cleaning is hard work. I do few hours at my parents on Sunday and I'm always tired when I've finished. Hope it's possible to pace the jobs a bit better as time goes on. That's a great start to your business ventures though, not many entrepreneurs would have drummed up as much work so early on in the game.

Our water is still a bit dodgy, it's running OK, but it's a bit disclosured, so I'm running it through the tap for a while. Just finished my workout, so I'm really in need of some water.

I'll be making some curtains today (not my favourite job, but needs must), at least I'll be indoors and warm.

Have a great start to weekend everyone.

Hope everyone is having a good day.

I hope your water problems get fixed soon free. Good luck with the curtains, if it was me I would be heading to the store.

I was invited to a friend's new year party tonight but I think I am going to just stay home. It would do me good to get out probably but with money tight and it being such a long drive I think I'll pass right now.
I'll be getting out tomorrow when I go up to visit my stepmother.

Hi UP, it's nice to get an invite! It might be a good thing for you to connect with friends, (so long as they are supportive of your clean living, of course).

The water is back to normal thank goodness, it's amazing how we take it so much for granted. Is your well sorted out UP, I seem to remember you were having problems with it last year?

The curtains are going well, but I've had enough of sewing now so I'm getting ready for bed. I need to be up early tomorrow.

Wishing you all a very good night. Take care everyone.

Yes, they do support me. They drink, but alcohol never really appealed to me so it's easy for me to say no to that.

Unfortunately no, I need to have a new well drilled. It will cost about $6000+.
I'm ok for right now.

Now I'm thinking that maybe I should have went to the party.

I'm sitting here a little sad and lonely, but fortunately I know exactly what has me feeling this way tonight. Of course I could just as easily be feeling the same up there surrounded by people.
It will go away.

Hope you all are having a good night.

Sorry to hear the well is still not sorted, UP. It's obviously a big project. No need for a well here, we get plenty of water raining down on us! (I'm not complaining......much!)

I'm off to visit my parents in a moment. Mum has deteriorated noticeably over the past few weeks. She wasn't up to going to church last week, and it sounds like it might be best to give it a miss again this week. She's sleeping a lot of the time, and I'm wondering if she's losing interest in reality. Life must feel so hard for her at the moment. Looking after parents brings up all sorts of hidden emotions, it's quite strange.

Anyway, hope everyone's having a good weekend.

I'm sorry to hear that about your mom. I hope she is doing better today.

I know what you mean about the hidden emotions, I'm going up to see my stepmother tomorrow / today, depending on how you look at it.

Have a good day.

Glad the boiler is sorted Freein !

You must need a really deep, deep well Up,....
Too bad there are no neighbors close by,... who may let you tap into theirs.

Tonight is my Thursday night !,...thank goodness. Nice crowd this week though.

Hope your Mom is doing a little better this week Freein,...

Any new prospective jobs Mariah ?
I'm guessing, similar to landscaping,..... repeat scheduled jobs are the gold standard in your business.

Lucky I didn't give up this job, just yet !?!

Four years worth of profits in my IRA just vanished the last ten days !
oh well,....there's something else to be said for sobriety.
It doesn't seem to bother me a bit !!
Maybe I'm losing my mind. ( and don't know it )

... To be fair, waiting until I was 55 to start an IRA ain't exactly the suggested path !

Hope everyone is having a good day. I'm feeling pretty wiped out & have a lot to do today & do t feel like doing any of it. Will see what I can get done & let the rest go.

Sorry to hear your Mom is not doing well Freein....hard to see, I'm sure. Wonderful you are there for her as with you for your Step Mom Up.

I have the job to finish up tomorrow TS, & hoping to pick up another through property management co., even if I get just one other job for the week, will keep me ahead of the game.

I started a little late with planning for my future too TS.....& didn't have winning powerball #s last night which sure puts a crimp in my plan

Oh dear, it looks like we might all be in the same boat with pension planning (or lack of). I like the idea of pulling in a lottery win as the fall back position. It's got to work surely?

Tops, your week finishes just as the rest of us start getting going. You're so ahead of the game. What's it like in the fast lane?

I've been a bit neglectful of my meditation practice recently, and I'm beginning to miss it. I'll be sitting for 20 minutes or so before I go to sleep, and hopefully my normal routine will click back in to place.

Have a restful end to the weekend all.

A lottery. win. will . work !!

Since I never play,.... my plan was to find a big bag of money in the woods one day.

Buying a 2 dollar ticket for the projected record breaking 1.25 billion ( with a B ) dollar Powerball this Wed. may be a better option. Two bucks is surely well worth 30 minutes of fantasy . And,...what a big bag !?!

I had a slip up the past two nights here at work on my no sugar commitment. It's a slippery slope around the office with all the holiday sweets laying around.

Finally feel like I'm catching upon my sleep a bit. Not getting a whole lot done outside of work though,....

Freein,
...did you already have the fabric for the new curtains ?
It sounds like you've done this kind of thing before,......

I have to agree that a lottery win will definitely fit the bill. It's worth taking a chance for two dollars.

My stepmother is doing ok. My step niece is a different story, she is a heroine addict. She is, supposedly, trying to get clean. She is on suboxone, taking more than prescribed any only worries about getting more suboxone.
When I got there, she is lying on the floor crying in pain. She was told by the doctor last week that her liver is swollen and needs to see a GI doctor. She lied on the floor because it felt like her liver was pressing on her lung and rib cage and she couldn't breathe sitting. We tried to get her to go to the hospital but she refused to, saying that they would keep her overnight and she would miss her appointment with the suboxone doctor in the morning. I have the feeling that she is going to keep putting off going to the doctor.
Can't make someone do something they don't want to.

I hope everyone is having a good night / day, for obo and Dee.
