Where have I been? Reserving my capacity for typing for my job. My May 1st move was very tough on my health issues that affect my elbows and hands. I could barely get any work done, and it just wasn’t right to neglect work in order to blog. I still have to pace myself, but the intensity of the problem has vastly improved.
There’s a lot of technology available that types by speech, and I hope to use that someday, to take some of the pressure off of my hands. Will that work, though? Is it in my price range? I don’t know. So I’ve prepared a backup source of income; I’m an Avon representative. Years ago I had success selling Avon — back when I lived in Wyoming. It’s a great business opportunity, something I can vouch for by personal experience. If my hands, heaven forbid, become gnarled, an Avon income will help! Met some super-friendly ladies on my Avon “team.” They helped me get pumped up, and I already have my website all set up: www.yourAvon.com/stevie.
The kids and I are truly enjoying our new home, even though unpacking everything is creeping along at a snail’s pace because of my limitations. Most of the apartment looks great, though. Something about this new place of ours gives me the oddest sense of being back in my childhood home. It’s pretty awesome.
There’s a lot to be thankful for. I have an amazing new employer who needs lots to be written, and he believes in paying writers a good wage for their work. Thank You, Lord!
My bedroom came complete with a three-way-mirror, and looking at myself full-length several times a day is serving as a great motivator to lose weight! Not liking what I see.
The best thing that’s going on besides the joy the kids give me every day is my read-the-New-Testament-in-a-Year plan that I’m following through Bible Gateway. It’s wonderful to start the day reading about Jesus. I find myself meditating more on the miracles of God these days.
I’m able to blog again, which seems like another of God’s miracles.
