Mission 101 in 1001
I can't afford any of the major purchases on my  goals list and the travel goals are unrealistic. My dh and I both need jobs. I am feeling pretty hopeless at this point. We may have to move back home and move in with my mother.  She is getting to the point in her health where she needs some help anyway.  She would be really happy to have us move back home.  We all get along well.  I just resent not having any money so much.  A relative who is doing well and is very materialistic really looks down on us - me especially.  She is such a witch.  And I can just hear her comments if we have to move in with mother. 

I decided to just accomplish what I could on my list that is realistic and start another one when I've achieved the doable ones.

It makes me feel better to be able to cross of goals accomplished.

Making and working with a list like this is a  learning experience.

I know that lots of people are in similar trouble.

Mission 101 in 1001

  1. Play with your doll collection
So, in the spirit of goal  61.  Play with your doll collection   I have taken my Medieval Lady Barbie out of her box. 

I mean seriously, I am not going to resell these dolls.  I have no children or grandchildren to leave them too.  So, I might as well play with them, right?  Right!  Anyway, that's another goal accomplished.

I am in a foul mood today.  Moody and depressed.  Because of the state of the national economy & because our personal economy is not going so well.  We can't afford to replace our worn out car.  So we have had the one car in the shop all week.  Repairs were supposed to be $1,100.00.  Which we have the money saved, but really cuts into our savings.  Then they told us that the repairs would cost about $500.00.  For which I am very greatful.  But I am still feeling depressed.

I have started going through boxes, trying to get better organized and trying to get rid of clutter.

I really haven't posted in quite awhile.  Things are really not going so well around here.  I enjoy reading everyone's posts.  Need to quit lurking.  Need to get a life that is more interesting than the one I currently have.

A Rant About January

OK.  So, I need to post.  I seriously want to journal and make lj friends.  Problem is I don't think my life is all that interesting.  I am bored with myself and boring.

January was a very rough month and I really have not wanted to make a list of my problems as that only makes me more depressed.

Trying to think more positively about 2009.  And be greatful for what I actually am and have and not mourn what I don't have.

I used to not be so materialistic and not care about material things and posessions. 

I am happy with my 101 in 1001 days list and I have been enjoying working on it.  Lots in progress.  Nothing really completed.

A New Year
Happy New Year To All!

It's been a hectic week. 

Starting the new year by eating healthier.  Went to store and did not buy any junk food at all.  Including no soft drinks.  Think grocery bill was reduced by about $50.00 US Dollars at least.

Busy working on new goals.

Extra busy looking for a job, any job.

Mixed emotions about the new year.  Trying to stay positive about everything that is going on that I don't feel like journaling about right now.

Current Mood: confusedconfused

I still have a chest cold.  I mean really - it gets cold and damp for one day and I get a chest cold.  Bleah!

I don't feel like doing anything.  So, am watching TV.  Left over stew and cornbread for lunch.

Tomorrow, the dreaded Dr.'s appointment, exam thingie.  She'll take one look at me and put me on antibiotic.  I just know it.


I'm glad I got all my Christmas shopping done.  And, it's just my husband and me.  If we can't find a restaurant open, I'll make chicken and dressing.  And a couple of sides.  And we'll be done with Christmas.

What's Up With Me?
So, we've been under a lot of stress lately & not just from winter holiday season.  And, I decide to come down with this chest cold.  As there was no one else in the house -- I paced the floor & cussed the world in general for about 5 min at the top of my lungs.   I feel much better & hopefully will return to being my usually calm and practical self -- AARGH!

So, I am making good comfort food for supper Stew and Cornbread.

But really, I am verry greatful that a small business property my mother owns has rented.  And someone is thinking about buying another business property she has.  So, really I am verry greatful about this.
