I know this seems like the 11th time I’ve said this, but it’s kinda true. I’ve been doing lots of purging (of things not food) in an attempt to simplify my environment. Twice I was going to move out of my apartment, but neither circumstance turned out to be solid or reliable. I want to stay in my neighborhood, if I can find a place I can afford or more ideally negotiate with my landlord for something smaller and cheaper.
The economy has been hard on me (as a federal employee). Most people would not think government employees have it bad. I doubt if I will be laid off, but I like most gov-workers have not been able to advance in their career because of job freezes. I haven’t had a pay increase in over four year and as the price of things go up, my paycheck has not.
My crochet, baking and money generated from the naked kidz activities have helped over the years, but last year’s illnesses and not attending any social media events have affected us greatly. It’s why purging my environment is so important; seeing what I had, what can be sold, recycled, donated or fixed. It also gives me a better opportunity to see what I need.
I am making a full-court-press for commissions this year, sponsors for the kidz and networking my tooccus off to make up for lost time. I must first organize my space.
