Quick catch up on day 168

Holy cow - 168. I'm making it! Recently, there have been urges galore, but I think that's just the addiction poking me and making me think I want to think about smoking. I had a cigarette in my dream last night, but it wouldn't light. So there, cigarettes, even when you think you're the boss of me, you're not.


The day my company cut me to 3 hours a week and before I finally just resigned, I applied for several gigs online. Fast forward to a couple days ago and one of them contacted me. It took me a day to decide whether I really wanted to take their assessment to move to the next level of potential hiring process, but I just finished it. It didn't hurt a bit to try, right? The good news is I have a choice this time. I would like to work. It's not all of who I am, but I like the definition it gives me. I'm finding my way through non-work days just fine, so it's not the end of the world if I am either not offered the contract or I turn it down. Choice. Lessens the stress level a lot, you know?


I did a lot of sewing the last couple of days. I've made 6 potholders. It's starting to be fun going back and finishing up things I had already started!


So you guys, other than Richard and my sister, are the only ones who know I am pursuing this part time thing. I'm not 100% sure how I'm going to handle it, but I will definitely give it a college try.


Have a gorgeous day in your neck of the woods.Two of my kids are coming by to have cake and ice cream for dad's birthday. I'm always there when there's cake!
