Staying Focused

I have applied for several jobs here in my new town… the town I hope to settle down in permanently. I have been applying for everything I can hope to get, but there have been a couple that I feel I would be extremely happy with. One in particular would be great. It’s a part Member Services position and part Communications Representative. The Member Services is pretty much just customer service for members of the electric co-op. The Communications Rep duties include publishing the annual calendar of events for members, publishing the newsletter, handling the scholarship, and even writing press releases among other things. I handle many of the duties already with several of my freelancing clients so I hope I get the chance to interview for the position.

I have been visiting often with a couple of friends and yesterday they took Grandma and me out sightseeing which was fun. She was adamant about not going but they talked her into it which I’m glad they did as otherwise she would’ve just stuck around the house all day and moped because it was my dad’s birthday.

I think I need to call to make an appointment with my doctor sometime soon though as I’ve been feeling a tingly, sharpness in my feet sometimes… Almost like they are falling asleep but worse. It actually woke me up tonight. It has gradually gotten worse over the last week and a half to two weeks and I’m getting a little concerned.

There have been a lot of major updates to my freelance website. In fact, the only pages that I still have left to update are my Portfolio page with links to online samples of my work, and the Testimonials page where I will post some feedback that I’ve received from some of my clients. My writing rates, editing rates, contact, about, and blog pages are all up. I do need to write and post a new blog entry though just to make sure it’s current. Check it out HERE.

Well, I should get to work. I want to get a lot of writing done today as I really need the money at the moment. I have goals!

Something I’m Proud Of: Everything about ME!

Three Things I’m Grateful For:

  • Friends
  • Family
  • Fresh starts

First Day of Farmer’s Market

I got up early today. The pain woke me up as usual. It’s very difficult to move around with the boot on in bed so I don’t think I’m moving wrong, it’s just the swelling that gets to be too much. I was told I could take the boot off to sleep but I tried that and could feel the bones move so I put it back on. Besides, with a 60 pound dog that shares the bed, I don’t want to be accidentally stepped or laid on, you know? Not my idea of a good wake up!

But anyway, the hubby and I went to the Farmer’s Market in St. Albans today. My mother-in-law is supposed to have a booth there selling her jewelry but it was raining off and on and they couldn’t find the canopy cover so they didn’t set up. Instead, we met them there and walked around. Well, I crutched, 😀 . We ended up buying some really delicious cookies (they even had a gluten free cookie for my mother-in-law!) and we got some starter plants for the garden. We still haven’t started it yet so I am hoping having starter plants will help. We will still try the seeds and see what happens.

After the Farmer’s Market, we went for pizza at Pie in the Sky. It was delicious, as usual. Then on to the grocery store for a prescription and some things to make some packable lunches for hubby during the week since he starts his new job on Tuesday. I have a feeling that he’s really going to enjoy this new job. It seems to fit him so well.

Since getting home, hubby has mowed the lawn and washed dishes, while I have sat on my butt with my ankle up. Ice is my best friend right now 🙂 . Tomorrow we are having a BBQ with my in-laws and I can’t wait! I promise not to slip on the hose this time. LMAO!
