As I mentioned in previous posts alot has changed in my life ...most not for the best ...however as they say when life gives ya lemons ...well you know ...:0) add tequilla and salt lol NO NOT REALLY ...but it sounds like a great time ! Now that a few things are "FINALIZED" I can share with you ...as you know I had back surgery 2 years ago Jan ...well my employer laid me off indefinitely...well the short of it they gave me a TON of run -around and a very stressful existence ...my surgeon released me to return to work last OCT with permanent restrictions (and yes Im leaving alot of details out and alot of the confusion ) my employer finally in Sept of this year decided to demand I have my restrictions updated ie: lifted or voluntarily quit ...this certified letter came 5 days before my unemployment was to be totally exhausted and to run out completely and 3 weeks after I had thrown the Mr out of the house ! So after much stress, many hassles , many unjumpable hoops I resigned from my job!
So one door closes ...another one opens right??? Well not neccessarily ...seems no matter what plan I tried to come up with , what idea , what ave....someone kept slamming a door in my face ! I was even denied for public assistance because her highness gets $573 a SSI survivors benefits (her real dad committed suicide in March ) and APPARENTLY that is making too much for any help and my rent is $500 a month!!! WTH??? I didn't want it as a way of life I needed it to care for my child and to maintain my independence until I could find out how to proceed with whatever avenue we were to travel down .( yes I could live with my mother ...but Im 37 yrs old she has already raised me and has a life of her own ...that will be a last resort only )
So to shorten the story even more ...here I am today ...my new door to life wide open... I reckon...I am standing here scratching my head and want you to know ...I AM creating and will continue creating as much as I physically can and as much as I can financially afford ...AS THIS IS NOW THE ONLY MEANS I HAVE to support myself and my family :0) ...and your friendship and support however are PRICELESS to me and mean so much more than any $$$ I could ever have !
I am going to try harder to post regular ..however between a VERY demanding 5 yr old , trying to maintain a home and trying to create and make a living and my health I may not be able to, but I will try !
So now you have the short of the long of it all ...and as much as I hate to I must get to stitching ...wishing each of you a wonderful blessed rest of your weekend and until we meet again ...Ill always be a lil raggedy angie! hugs
