I made some good headway on Tuesday and Wednesday. One thing surprised me - when I called to remove the TV and stop the land-line, I kind of lost my drive. I ended up going with just the cheapest packages - which is still not in the new budget. So - today with resolve I need to call back and just get it stopped.
It was kind of funny - I was on the phone with the phone company - getting ready to stop the service - and my other line was trying to beep through. Aggghghg. Turns out it was my brother calling me.
So today - I'll call back and get the phone switched off and totally have the TV turned off.
This morning I got about an hour's worth of writing in. Only about 350 words - but I like the direction it's going. So - hopefully I'm on the right track.
I think everyone has been notified that I've been laid off. But haven't done anything on FB besides removing my company affiliation. I just don't feel that connected to FB as I do some other places - so don't feel the need to comment one way or the other.
Monday night I was thinking one of the good things about this was I wouldn't have to put on makeup each day. Not only would it be better for my complexion - but a way to conserve makeup/save money. And then as I got dressed/brushed my teeth ... guess what I did? Yep, put on makeup. Aghghghg! I thought about wiping it off - but figured that was wasteful - so it stayed on. But TODAY - I didn't put it on before my walk - and I didn't put it on when I got dressed! Yay! Go me!
Tuesday I got all of my internet accounts that had my business eMail linked to them changed over to my other eMail address. This is something I should have done long ago - but I knew it would be time consuming - and I just never quite took the time to get it done.
My friend and I walked for a half-hour yesterday in my neighborhood. This morning we met in her neighborhood. We have two three-mile tracks laid out. I don't feel as I'm working as hard as I did on the elliptical - but I am walking further - and because Raleigh is not flat I am still getting some up hill/down hill exercise too. I'm really glad she and I are able to do this together. She is also looking for a job - and has been unemployed for about two months. So she has pushed a lot of good information my way. Stuff that I don't know if I'd be persistent enough on my own to search out. I REALLY, really hate talking on the phone - and so I'm glad of all the leg work she's done.
This morning when I returned from our walk, I had a message from another friend. They are leaving today for their beach house at Myrtle Beach. She wanted to know if I'd like to join them. I have two minor commitments to see if I can rearrange. If I can get them resolved, I should be on my way to the beach around four o'clock this afternoon! I hope it all works out.
So - just in case I don't have internet down there - I hope everyone has a great Labor Day weekend. And since I missed Food Wednesday yesterday - here's the link. "Way Worth the Work" - five things worth making from scratch on an occasional basis. I love the idea of freezing whipped cream in dollops!
