Time for an Update

Hello Friends!

Have you wondered where I’ve been? Missed me at all? Probably not. LOL . Things have been difficult. Things are difficult. I did get that job working with developmentally disabled individuals. I worked a couple weeks however, I was only getting paid $10.50/hour. There were so many responsibilities including giving medications that I thought the pay was incredibly too low. Plus, I just couldn’t do it. I learned it was not the work I was made to do. So I’m looking in the IT field again. I’ll be meeting with a recruiter with a placement agency sometime this week.

Additionally, I received notice that my house is in foreclosure! I figured this would eventually happen since I haven’t been able to make the payments for awhile. However, it still stung. And they plan to sell via auction on 3/13. So I made an appointment with an attorney to talk about filing bankruptcy. My credit is shot anyway so it’s not going to hurt me and it may actually help me. I have that appointment on Wednesday at 10 a.m. I’m hoping it goes well and can in fact help me.

All of this has increase my depression and as a result I’ve given in to my chocolate cravings. I have gained some weight back and am at 278.2 now. I’m a little disappointed in myself. With all the snow and cold, I haven’t gotten out to exercise either. For some reason, I hate working out inside with DVDs. It’s too boring. I really need to change my attitude with that because I need exercise!

I’ve been doing Uber Eats Delivery for work and I actually like it. I can do a payout of my earnings the same day, which is cool. I don’t have to wait a week to get paid. That’s nice! And I don’t do too bad. On Saturday, I made just over $90. I could make more if I could see better at night. But I only do deliveries until dark. I can’t see addresses in the dark so I stop before then.

School has started back up and I’m in a Sociology class. I hope to keep up with class this time. I have a paper due tonight. I can’t let myself get so behind like I did with the last class. That’ll just cause me to be overwhelmed and stressed and I don’t want that to happen.

Well, I suppose that’s about it for now. I’ll try to come back more often and write. That is the purpose of this blog after all. I have my therapy appointment tomorrow. It’s been almost a month since I’ve seen her last. My appointments keep getting cancelled due to weather. Hopefully, this one doesn’t!

Take care and wherever you are, I wish you peace, love and happiness.

  1. Aw, bless you! This winter has been horrible and it seems like the worse things always happen in the coldest months. My hubby is in hospital again and it’s been very hard to write so I completely understand. I hope that things start looking up for you. Life can be so damned hard. Wishing you blessings of comfort and peace. Hang in there.
