Calling All Dreamers

Standard

Good morning lovely people,

I’m coming to you live from Indianapolis, here on the Westside, at my job, at my desk…Yep, it’s as boring as it sounds, lol. Such a shame that I’m here in the middle of my work day, daydreaming about what I want to be when I grow up. Yes, never mind the fact that I’m 41 years old, I have two almost adult children, I’ve been married and divorced, and I work a full-time job as a pharmacy technician. But that’s not my dream job, I mean it pays the bills, barely, but I have a dream of being my own boss one day. Seriously, I know that sounds like most Americans, but really folks, I think I deserve it after all of these years. I mean considering that I didn’t finish college and I’ve been a single mom for years before I got married. I have worked hard all my adult life starting at 14 and I’ve been in so many different lines of work I can’t even count all of the jobs I’ve had. I mean I could try but it would be hilarious and a bit embarrassing. Too bad I couldn’t get college credit for every different job I’ve had. I’ve worked as a waitress, in clothing stores, in hospitals, in drugstores, in the manufacturing field (making airplane engines and the automobile industry believe or not). I mean, I’m not flighty or unable to hold down a job, but I’m a jack-of-all-trades, really, if you teach me something once, I’ll pick it up quickly and I’ll be the best at it. But, with being a single mom for so many years, I went wherever the best paying job with the best health insurance would have me.

So with that being said, I’ve learned over the years, that I’m very creative and I can learn just about anything. I would like to take that gift and use it to my own advantage. I love baking, sewing, and quilting, and I would love to own my own rustic little shop where I can do all of these things all day and get paid for it. Sounds great!!! One day, I’ll make it happen. Don’t mind me, just rambling on, hoping and wishing, and dreaming.

You all have a great day,

And let us not grow weary of doing good, for in due season we will reap, if we do not give up. So then, as we have opportunity, let us do good to everyone, and especially to those who are of the household of faith. (Galatians 6:9, 10 ESV)

Random thoughts

Standard

Good Evening folks,

So not much new on the sewing front, the baking scene, or on my promotion. I woke up this morning with a migraine, just a minor setback for the day. I’ve suffered from migraines for a few years now, just a byproduct from high blood pressure. But, being the little scamp that I am, I decided back in December of last year, that I would forgo all BP meds and diet and exercise, to lose weight and lower my BP on my own. I was doing so well for the first couple of months and lost 12 pounds. But I’ve been a slacker for the last few weeks, that I have to get back on it. I knew last night while eating this pizza that I’ve been craving for a few months now, that I would wake up with a renewed sense of eating healthy. And low and behold, not to my surprise, I woke up with a headache. I made it to work though, but I couldn’t function and was completely unproductive, so I had to leave after working half of my shift. So, needless to say, I have to get back on my dieting (eating healthy) and start some exercising. (BOOOOO HISSSSS)

I did, however win another bid on the Goodwill auction site:

Per my previous post, I’m still trying to figure out this blogging thing, and I’m lost on how to add the Pinterest button, where people can pin images from my blog to Pinterest. I figured out how to add the button, but it won’t allow me to pin a particular image. Maybe someone out there can help me on that. I would assume it’s because I haven’t upgraded my blog or something of that nature. But I did figure out how to show up on Bloglovin, so points for me!!!

So, I’m going to go to bed early and try it again, meanwhile you all enjoy your evening and many blessings to you,

Therefore I tell you, whatever you ask in prayer, believe that you have received it, and it will be yours. And whenever you stand praying, forgive, if you have anything against anyone, so that your Father also who is in heaven may forgive you your trespasses.” (Mark 11:24, 25 ESV)
