Old Post – One

A Blast from the Past – Part One

I was going through some things and wanted to close one of the blogs that I had a couple years ago but never got off the ground.  That’s because I never did anything with it.  

But while I do want to close the old blog, I want to share that stuff because it was my life, and what I was going through, at that time…December 2009 and January 2010. 

There were only 8 post so I will put one up each day for the next 8 days.  Enjoy!

So today I’m working on my Christmas cards that have got to get in the mail no later than Sunday afternoon so they’ll actually go somewhere on Monday.  It’s only about 4 business days from Christmas…and it’s not like I’m known for being on-time!

I’m about to pay some bills, which will be very depressing, but I did just spend $35 at Wal-Mart’s online photo lab to get to have some pictures I uploaded printed today.  One of them is an 8×10 that I think I’ll give to my friend Shirley for Christmas: that will take care of one of the 2 people I’m buying a gift for.  It’s a picture she said she really liked so I’m going to either use one of the frames and mats I have at home or buy another mat and frame it in an 11×14 frame.

All the other pictures are to hang up at home and put in photo albums and a scrap book for Ms. Kitty…the vast majority of the prints I just ordered were of her!  I’ve never photographed a subject more than I have my precious little puss!  I do love her!  She makes the home so much happier and lively.

This weekend I’ve got to work on my resume and finish it so I can take it to Mr. SanSan on Monday.  I’m thinking about going to work for him…if he’s still looking for someone.  I spoke with him earlier in the year when he was just about to open his new hotel but I didn’t want to work for him for the money he was wanting to pay…I’m I think I’m willing to.

I actually was supposed to take my resume to him a couple of weeks ago but didn’t because after thinking about it I decided I didn’t think I really want to try that just yet.  But now, since I think I’m about at the end of my rope at my current job, I think I should.  Going to work for him should give me a little more job security which I really don’t think I have right now.

My current job situation is something I’m hoping to write more about later this weekend.

Oh, and I need to finish laundry and clean the house.


I sit and watch you.
I watch you participate in life.  I watch you have life.
I watch you go along on the rolling tide of life.
Living, laughing, enjoying, being.
You are being
I see you loving.
Loving the one you’re with.
Laughing and joking,
Being in love.
Enjoying what life has to offer.
Enjoying the comfort of companionship.
Enjoying what life is about.
I watch you love.
I watch you live.
I sit here and watch.
Alone and lonely.

I’m Happy, Can I Spend Now?

I just got off the phone with the student loan people and had my student loan payment reduced by half.  Now I only have to

pay $135 for the next two years.

I was in a recovery program for a year so now the loan went back to the original loaners, I guess.  Hopefully the bad stuff will soon be taken off my credit.

But now that I got my loan payment reduced, I want to celebrate…by spending money.  Money I don’t really have this week.

I really shouldn’t spend any extra money this week and I told myself that I wouldn’t.  But I want to.  I really, really want to now because I’m happy.

I want to send money when I’m happy.  I want to spend money with I’m sad.  I want to spend money when I’m depressed.  I just want to spend money.

My name is Gi, and I have a problem.  A spending problem.
