I just made the corrections and approved the obituary for my mother. Am I done being an adult for the day? Her service is next month (she was cremated, so it's not creepy) and the newspaper version will be printed the Sunday before the serv... Read more

For the memorial service. The day and time are what I'd hoped for. I get the proof for the obituary tomorrow. So many more details to work out...I can do this, one day at a time... ... Read more

If you're going to weigh yourself, do it before you're completely dressed...including shoes...with your pockets full of change and your backpack on. If you don't, it's going to say something rude! Like you're up 5lbs instead of maintaining ... Read more

I called my counselor and went down to see him yesterday. I let the schoolwork slide a little to do it. It was necessary. I've got to deal with all of this in a healthy way and not let it put me back to where I used to be. I can't imagine h... Read more
So, that happened...

My weekend was a nightmare. The next five and a half weeks until Mom's memorial service don't look to be much better, but I'm dealing with it. I'm not off the rails, I'm not binging, I didn't drop out of school, and I'm functioning. It... Read more

Skipping today's market for high wind warnings. Last week I lost 2 racks to the wind. Yesterday, the scrubbie bins blew over and stuff wouldn't stay on tables. (Obnoxious woman next to me said "I heard the crash" in this superior tone of voice ... Read more

My Friday the 13th
Friday, October 13, 2017      6 comments

Was spent planning mom's memorial and burial of her ashes. Not a great day. Hubs is being amazing, as usual, but it's all on me to plan and arrange. According to him, he's "just in it to provide moral support and pay the bill. Oh, and play ... Read more
Holy cr*p, I'm getting it?!

I blogged about butting head with my instructor about my integrity and refusing to resubmit my work after correcting it with the class. Well, the assignment in question has been graded and I got...Wait for it...95%!!! Not exactly sure how I... Read more

And son made time to stop by and not only wrangle it into the house (thanks for putting it on the porch where I couldn't open the door, UPS ... Read more
Hubs is helping :-)

No, he's not home. He's not doing stuff at the house. He's playing tag with hurricanes all this past week! But he IS helping with things by making sure I can get what I need for the house. He's having the new mini-washer delivered (it was s... Read more

I'm having a bit of an issue with an instructor. It's an odd one. The issue, not the instructor. The instructor is amazing. We had a project due today (FIVE tax returns!) and I screwed up on mine. I turned it in before class, because I thought i... Read more
Progress in the kitchen
Monday, October 09, 2017      2 comments

But not the way you'd think. The old washer and gas dryer are out. The new (to me) electric dryer is hooked up. A new mini washer is on its way (hubs evidently broke the drain on the one I had when he stored it because it was broken when I went ... Read more
No rain today

So the market was able to happen. But the winds picked up and flipped a table with several racks. I had left a friend watching the tables while I started loading the car. She was evidently off doing something else. I didn't even know she had w... Read more
Rained out again. Ugh.
Saturday, October 07, 2017      5 comments

We were rained out for over a third of market days this year. Ouch. That hurts the bottom line. I picked a bad year to open the shop. But Hubs wants me to give it another year. That gives me plenty of time to reclaim my house from son movi... Read more
