This is going to be a combination of everything Journal post.

I had a very productive wonderful day. I was able to mail my FINAL payment for taxes. I was able to go to Ikea and get more boxes. Pay some bills, ordered some groceries, register a domain name (YAY!), and now I'm kinda meh.

I am grateful for days off. I can blah, sleep in, or accomplish a great deal.

I am grateful for Ikea. Ikea has some great prices on things.

I am grateful for AWESOME customer service. Blue host is the bomb.

I am grateful for paydays. Ah Paydays, I love you.

Dear Universe, All is well in my world. Live is Good! Thank you Much Love, Krisso.

That fit my day very well. I paid my gas bill, checked last month's electric bill (I paid, this month is A's turn). I ordered some more shake mix. I went to Ikea, had some brunch, bought some boxes and Salmon. I went to the bank and got a money order. I came home and registered a domain name. I'm feeling very well about it.

I paid my taxes off last month, but they refunded the money in error, and I had to call back and figure out what went wrong. Apparently, while the IRS collects penalties for ACA, they do not enforce it, and my total tax bill included my 2014 penalty. I paid off the taxes, but they didn't connect two and two and get four. They mailed my ACA penalty back in error. So that is what I needed to mail today. YAY!

I have to play with with the website more. I have other WP blogs, and this is a little different. It doesn't work quite the same as the other blogs. So, yeah play time. We'll see how it works out.

I have a pretty good idea what I am looking for in a new place. YAY!

I also registered for 2 communitiy ed classes. One for Google Analytics and Photography: As a Business. Legwork can be fun.

Well. 9.12.2017

I talked with A this morning.  I asked her if she would like to stay in the apartment after I move.  She had responded yes she would.  I asked if she would want anything, because I am not planning on taking a whole lot with me.  She responded that she would like some of it..  I then told her that the idea of it that she had been batting around her head, she should give more thought to.  She asked why now, and I responded that things are moving, ideas are cooking, and while I said by the end of a year, I am preparing for it to happen sooner.

She didn't say anything after that.  But I feel that I have done my part, to let her know that I am indeed moving. 

Where Were You: 9.11.2017

where were you on that September Day?  I was working at SunTrust Mortgage's Call Center in Richmond, Va.  I was answering phones, when the news story came over NPR that a plane had hit the WTC.  I remember when I was talking to a customer, and I was asking if he knew what was going on, and he had responded with no.  I told him what we had heard, and he said he was going to turn on the news as well.  I remember calling my family to make sure everyone was okay.  I remember calling a friend that was currently stationed at Fort Bragg, NC.  She said she was fine, that they had closed the base, and there were military men driving around in Humvees w/ ak47s.  Everybody was okay.

They cancelled all air travel.  Which was a bitch for those trying to overnight their payments, mail their payments, etc.  USPS was only guaranteeing up to 500 miles for overnights.  They could drive that.  There were news stories of people buying cars to make trips, because all the rentals were sold out.  They were carpooling too.  Stories of towns coming together to give sanctuary to air travelers that were instructed to land.  The World came together in a moment. 

Looking back, it was beautiful to see, people coming together
to be together
to mourn
to be happy
to be well
to be loved. 

It's kinda hard to comprehend what happened since then.  The anger then was still present, the fear.  The backlashes.

I am grateful for and love Nature.  I went out to Minnehaha Falls today, to attend Pagan Pride.  It was nice and enlightening.  I was approached by a several people.  It was an awesome experience, because it also means I am letting my guard down, so I can be approached.

I am grateful for and love work.  I had one client that didn't show, but I also had two that did, and they were beautiful people and souls.

I am grateful for and love my home.  I got home both times today to both kitties. 

I am grateful for and love the metro transit.  I chose to be the passenger today, and road the bus, and weekends are on the non peak rate of 1.75.

I am grateful for and love my camera phone.  I took lots of pictures at the falls today.

I had a wonderful day Earthing today.  I was happy with what happened today.  All is well in my world

I am grateful for and love that I live where I live.  While my thoughts are with those that are living in a hurricane's path, I am happy all I have to worry about is a tornado (maybe).

I am grateful for and love my cat.  I pick her up and love her, carry her around, and torment her.

I am grateful for and love fully booked days.  Today booked in well.  All week today had no clients, but by the time I was done with my first client, I was booked solid.

I am grateful for and love my home.  I love it here, even though I am leaving.  I look around at my home, and I truly love it.  I hope that my roommate chooses and is able to stay, because it would be a shame if she jumped ship.

I am grateful for and love days I am not booked.  I was booked solid today at work, it was nice to have a Friday that I was not booked at home.

I had an awesome day working on awesome people, and taking a hot shower when I got home.

Changes: 9.8.2017

So many changes to contemplate.  Changing my home.  Changing the direction of my career.   Changing my income streams.  Changing my food.  Changing my job.  Seriously is it too much?  No. 

I went out to Culver's last weekend, and had an awesome dinner.  Finished it off with an ice cream sunday.  *that was a bad idea*  My tummy started behaving like I ate something with whey in it.  It's sad sometimes to realize the things that you ate, that you enjoyed, no longer bring the same enjoyment. 

When I rolled my right ankle several weeks ago, I had to roll and stand.  I weight about 240 lbs at 5'6".  That's a lot, and it's heavy weight.  I know I can lose the weight.  But I don't have the direction yet.

My paycheck next week will be a little over 500 or a little under it, depending on my deductions.  I contemplate deleting my deductions, but then I remember why I am paying delinquent taxes for 2014 again.

I wake up sometimes and my fingers feel a little fat, like I had either too much sugar, salt, or gluten the day before.  Maybe all three.  My allergies are kicking in because of the increased "comfort food". 

Everything is changing, and sooner or later, it's going to go boom.  In a good way.
