Tuesday, right?

15 Mar

Well this week is going along better than last week. Nothing much has changed either, so here I am amazed at how outlook seems to play such a major role in emotions. I’m not sure why last week was so dreadful and this week, while equally dreadful in events, doesn’t seem to be eating at me quite so much.

So far this week entails my car in the shop for evaluation…haven’t even started repairs yet. I’m wondering if two days of evaluation is a sign of the enormity of the problem. I’m hoping perhaps they just decided to work on some cars with easier issues ahead of mine.

Had a slight scare with my paycheck this week from the day job. Almost looked like we might not get paid on time, which while not a catastrophe on the 15th, would have been a major, major problem had it occurred on the 1st. It reminds me to think kindly of those living paycheck to paycheck and to recall the saying “There but for the grace of God go I.” I am right there.

Also got a less than stellar report from the doctor today. Looks like a relapse of a situation from a couple years back. From the message it sounds like I will be back at the doc for a biopsy, but I will learn more on Thursday. Trying to keep a positive outlook until then…it is what it is and no amount of additional worrying will do anything now. (Note to self, stock up on tomatoes again).

In Blanket Statements business not too much is new. We’ve had oodles of people drop in from the Martha Stewart Dreamers Into Doers site, which I so greatly appreciate! I’m working on freeing up some time to delve into that site a bit more and see everyone else’s websites. And I promise to put together a post with links to great sites that are similar to our mission. I am also working towards switching suppliers for our fleece blankets. I found a great supplier in New England whose blankets are made in the USA, and that is really the direction I want to be going. I would like all of the blankets to be made in the USA and especially or organic eco-friendly materials/manufacturing.

This week I am also dropping off my first installment payment for personal bankruptcy/divorce. It seems awfully ironic that you have to have money to file bankruptcy. Note to people who are heading in that direction…make sure you check how much it costs for filing/attorney fees and start saving up. My attorney did mention he would take payments in house painting, or yard work. I may have to go that route! Here’s hoping that perhaps by the time I’m 50 I’ll see the light at the end of the tunnel!
