Well, the absolute panic of not having…
a job has not quite left me. I feel froze in fear and I’m not quite sure what to do with myself. When I worked I could think of dozens of things needing to be done but now I’m at a loss. It’s a weird feeling. I feel like my structure has collapsed and now I need to build a new one.
So how to build a new structure?
Well the first thing was to build a new budget. That was the hardest and damn but I’m still stressing over that. The good news is we will still be able to pay our bills and eat. Yay! The bad news is money will be tight for awhile. Really tight. The good news if we can make it for a year, we still will have all our bills paid off. Yay! I refuse to go any further with bad news. It will all be good and we will make it. I’m the little red engine that could. Toot, toot!
The second thing I want to do is build myself a schedule. I have a lot of learning and reading to do about writing so now I have the time to do that. It goes on the schedule. Definitely time to write goes on the schedule. Cleaning goes on the schedule. I will never have a pristine home (not with all these animals) but it can definitely be cleaner. Working on a home business goes on the schedule. Lots of things come to mind needing to be done.
Maybe I’m not getting anything done cause there’s so much to do? Hopefully a schedule with a list will help. I’ll be working on that over the next couple of days.
Wish me luck.
Here’s a video to enjoy.
