The Writing Blues

I haven't felt much like writing lately, can't say exactly why. I suppose there are times in one's life when all that living catches up to you. I'll have to say, now that I've pondered a few seconds on it, that's what has happened in mine.

Let's recap and take inventory of the past few months of the new year. School closure, census training, census working, trip to Ft Worth, trip to San Antonio, two benefits, looking for a new job, planning a surgery and finally the ex hubby has decided...well...I'll not divulge exactly what he's decided except that I don't like it.

Then there's this whole losing of my appetite thing. I'm not sure what's going on, and mind you, in the past I would have loved to have had this problem, that I've taken off weight, I'm not really in any condition to be losing more weight. This recent weight loss can not be attributed to the HCG Diet which I tried out last year and had successful results with. So, you're wondering what the weight is now? Hold on, let me weigh and I'll tell you. One hundred ten pounds. Yes, in the middle of the day fully clothed. I'll have to check it in the morning to see if it's even lower.

Possibly, it could be the really warm weather we've been having. It's difficult for me to eat hot things when it's hot outside. That reminds me I need to get my chilled soup recipes out and stock up on salad fixings.

I did have a fantastic time at the Rocker Chick Benefit which I'll blog here in a few days, once I get access to some pictures from that night. I can confidently report that over $6000 was raised for Erika. As soon as I get all the details I'll let you know.

I hope you post more too so I can read! Lol. Tell me/us how the census thing goes! Texas only returned like 60% of them in the mail lol. We suck at voting and doing the census apparently! And now you're gonna be a public school woman! Lol yaaaay. In the big city of Kermit!!! Wooooo. Hahaha. I'm glad you got a job. I was worried lol.

Thanks Jovan! Because of Texas' lack of participation I'm gonna make some BIG MONEY...thanks Texas! :-)

Yes...I was concerned as well, but this year has been filled with ups and downs, I think like with taxes...I've finally paid enough into the bad luck arena that finally I'm gonna get to have some good luck, just for myself!
