I have recently created a profile/started searching for free-lance work online. Surprising how many employers are out there seeking help in the way of virtual assistants. There is so much out there just in people needing help with data entry and other types of clerical work. Since I’m on my computer most of the time I figured it would be helpful finding work that way, since I could use a supplemental income. I love to write, and there are companies looking for people to write product descriptions too, which I’d enjoy!
Just to let you know I’m redesigning my site again. Wasn’t really happy with what I had before, and then LIFE got in the way! By that I mean 3 major surgeries and a lot of family drama, but things are getting better thank goodness! I’m adding pages and updating content from the old site I used to have on Weebly.
Please check back soon and thanks for your patience!
I began migrating my old site to this one here on WordPress. I started this WordPress site several years ago…2006 or 2007, and the old one in 2008 ~ As mentioned in my last post I’ve been doing a lot of ‘re-organizing’ and I have to say it feels really great!
I’ve been trying to organize my life, and along with looking for a new job, there has been much in the way of re-evaluating my priorities. Self discovery has been huge and I’m finding out a lot of new things about myself. Getting a “handle” on my blogs has been on my to-do list for a long while now, as I had numerous blogs – too many to try and keep up with. (I mean really, what was I thinking?) Most were ones that I started while in college many years ago, talk about being outdated! I’ve decided to condense so I can have everything in one place and a LOT less to do.
Crocheting has helped me keep sane – especially in the last couple of years! Along with acquiring hundreds and hundreds of free patterns, I’ve made a large number of things in the last 6 months. I’ve made hats, mittens, fingerless gloves, scarves, blankets, crochet hook cases, flowers and cowl hoodies! I’ve been crocheting for over 35 years now and discovering that I’d like to teach others how as well. I’ve been trying to teach a few kids recently – that’s a challenge!
Please bear with me as I get this site together. I’ll be working on it almost daily, when I can, until I’ve transferred what I need to from my other websites. I plan a LOT of neat things, so stay tuned!
I went been back to my Alma Mater to work with a new Career Advisor. As a graduate of DeVry I have a life-time of service from the Career Services Center there.Thank goodness for that! With attending just about every Career Fair in the Kansas City metro area, and becoming active on job portals out there – my resume is definitely in circulation. Finding full-time work has been horrible since I left the real estate company last fall. I’m wondering if age discrimination could be a factor…hard to prove but I know it exists.
There are reportedly a multitude of jobs out there in the fields in which I have experience, but getting that sought-after interview – ah that is the challenge! The resume must be perfect! Write it. Review it. Have it critiqued by friends and peers. I will let you know when I have snagged that elusive face to face!
It’s nearing the close of another Valentine’s Day. We woke up this morning and exchanged cards to each other, which is always fun! Then we went to breakfast at Gomer’s, which is ALSO fun! After our run to Costco later, getting back home felt incredibly good.
Lori’s getting unpacked & settled in to her new house – she closed Friday. I can’t wait to see it – Mark & I are going over there tomorrow.
Well I’m a little bored at the moment so think I’ll work on another website for a while.
Here it is almost Christmas 2008 and I have another granddaughter to add to our family. Her name is Zoe Marie and she’s a tiny girl ~ she looks like her daddy. Jess says that the baby is very good, and Hailey is a big help to her.
I moved in with Mark in August this year. Life is good. 🙂
Just got back from taking Hailey home… 🙂 God I love that baby girl! We had such fun and she’s talking a lot now; well not really talk, just babble lol. But she does say several words now, including mom, dad, Buddy (her dog’s name) and says no, yeah, wow, and getting closer to saying Grandma – she almost said it this morning!
Getting ready to do some major packing – I hate moving! Need more boxes! I have to paint and clean both places! I’ll have some help painting the new house I hope, not much to do at my old place other than touch-up and shampoo carpet.
I have to get all of the utilities changed over this week too – yikes there’s so much to do!
Til next time!
Who the hell is Ron Paul? I decided to look him up on Wikipedia, and here’s some of what I found out:
Source of my information: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ron_Paul
- He is a candidate for the Republican nomination in our next presidential election in 2008
- He is a 10th term Congressman from Lake Jackson, Texas
- He’s a physician, and earned the nickname of “Dr. No”, because he votes against any bill that he feels violates the Constitution
- Mr. Paul supports free trade, wants tighter border security, and gun ownership.
- He opposes abortion, the income tax, the federal War on Drugs and the federal regulation of marriage.
Those are just some of the things that stuck out for me in reading the article. I’ll be reading more on him in the coming days – this article goes back to his upbringing, and relates his military experiences and life in politics. He sounds pretty interesting.
