Posted in Florida life everyday

God bless the money that I make, and three other points I’d like to make do in my blog absence here.

Sorry folks but I’ve been out there trying to make a buck in the last three weeks.

Honestly it has not been easy. We just got new insurance and I’m now searching for a primary care physician and a new dentist.

So, I’ve had to really put blogging on hold for a while while I’m out there trying to scrape up a living. You see I work four days a week as a sub teacher with my county school district, I’ve been doing some delivery driving for instant money, in about 2 1/2 weeks ago I went to an online teaching seminars to be able to teach online so I wouldn’t have to drive.

Add that to the weekly cold fronts in Florida and that’s my daily Florida life! How am I taking the cold? Are! It’s not 105° when I’m trying to move everything in a moving pod. I live for this sometimes. But I don’t like five or six Canadians from Ontario cutting me off on the road because they’re visiting here for the winter.

My end of January New Year’s resolution is to drive less and teach more. We shall see how that pans out. So in essence right now I’m working three micro jobs. But I’m not without any money to read, right now I’m getting ready to finish my last requirement so I could have my teaching certificate renewed. So, it’s not forever that I’m going to be doing this and I kind of been been enjoying getting to meet all the restaurant people that I’ve been meeting. And I’ve also been trying to hang onto her car. So that’s the stress of what I’ve been dealing with the last few weeks.

Because of the weird hours that we’ve been working, we eat out a lot. We eat out and a $20 or less budget per meal for the two of us.

What about our car? The oil lights been on. So I put oil in it the light went on again I put more oil in it I pulled over to the service station and had it checked out totally fine he says. No, five years ago we took a little trip to the other coast and the car has not been the same since it jerks and has transmission issues but still runs. We’re looking for another car.

I somehow missed the days of what I had a rental car and drove for Lyft during the summer as a summer job before the school year started. It made me totally oblivious to what was going on outside the car because it was so hot outside. I asked myself the serious question is is that how most of the church is been because it seems like a lot of pastors drive the same kind of Hyundai car and are totally oblivious to what’s going on outside. Honestly I told myself no wonder!

Anyhow, I’m back here for a few paragraphs and glad I could make another visit here. Honestly, I’m thinking of giving up this blog and doing something more creative and different but will get to that before Easter.

If I don’t give up this, my husband and I eventually will be doing a travel blog around Florida. Or I could do a literature blog that travels around Florida. Let’s take care of the car first! Then that I can think about doing stuff like that.

This work is not much to look at but it is in Florida I’m not doing weird things that a lot of the crazy off-the-wall Floridians do. I go to work most every day, and I try not to give people too much trouble. So, how about that?

Give me the credit and the sunshine that I’m here still after 18 years of blogging. I try to give more emphasis on the positive then the troll negativity that I used to do. It’s not much to look at, but I’ve been blogging often on since 2003 &2004.

But conversely, in the last 3 1/2 weeks has me totally worn out because I’ve been also donating plasma to a local plasma company that pays me. And it’s usually after a donation if you’re very tired and just want to relax for the evening and not like it all. But, I have a long list of household stuff that just got shortened because we live in a one bedroom apartment and I don’t think we need half the stuff we used to have. I also no longer have I’m over the top gardening neighbor next-door anymore. The neighborhood we used to live in had a lot of yard freaks. Honestly they threw on the guilt so bad that you if you went to your car to do anything on the weekends, you felt guilt pulling out of the neighborhood that you didn’t know your lunch so perfectly like they did.

Coming up in the next 3 to 4 months we are going on an RV trip somewhere after we rent an RV hopefully. I guess you’re just sitting there wondering why am I working so long and hard? I would like to make enough money. I said it again. Period. I want to see if you work hard how much I can make?

And, I also would like to finally finish the edit of this so-called writing project I’ve been keeping top-secret. It needs a serious edit probably on spring break I just don’t want to have six things interrupted me all at once. To tell you the truth, every time I hear a certain song I see a movie end to it so maybe something good might come out of this?! I’ll believe it when I see it. What in the hell do I mean by the movie end? I hear the song playing and maybe it’s my movie? I don’t know.

Anyhow, that’s what’s been going on lately that’s why I have not been on here lately and I’ll get back in the mood of doing it every other day. Or at least taking pictures as to what’s going on.

But readers what would you like to see this blog become? P.m. me at size @STARK61555 on Twitter and let me know what you would like this blog to be more like? Would you like to see more pictures, more daily life of Florida or more funny things in Florida? Remember, I’m not a superficial person and I kind a like to have a conversation here sometimes.

And to the people who I work with who happen to just find out that I have a blog, don’t worry there’s nothing un ethical or bad here going on just boring daily Florida life and you’re probably you see a lot of it except for when you pushed back a few years when I was trolling some really ultra conservative traditional list of people that I got mad at. That’s about it. There’s no kids on here, just a lot of beach a lot a dog a lot of husband and a lot of me. Kind of boring remember that! I’ll get that to work and stop looking to accuse me of stuff that’s really bad it just highlights Florida life and the chamber of commerce with me if they saw this blog so trust me, that’s what it’s like here. I got started after I went to graduate school and kept coming back to Florida and started seeing what we have here. There’s no snow up north you it’s obvious so back to work back to your your your life and I’ll be on my own life but I’ll still keep the blog here.

Oh yeah, when were thing occasionally I let these northerners know that we get very cheap Disney tickets. And I also let them know that we have some pretty awesome sunsets. And then I said there is stare at them and I wait for them to go back up north because they can’t handle the heat.

OK, I’m going back to making the almighty dollar and fixing our home till the way we want it. Back to work!

Oh yeah, happy new year 2019 and happy early Valentine’s Day. Not one of these paragraphs is probably grammatically correct because I speak into my iPad. And that stinking thing can never spell and sad by the time I’m done I don’t want to edit it.

One more thing: I guess you haven’t noticed or maybe you have noticed I don’t mention with the political stuff or what’s going on in Washington DC! I’m not mentioning anything about the abortion issue in New York, nothing more about the Covington garbage and that’s all I’m gonna say here at the bottom. Nothing I don’t care I just don’t think any of that’s worth my time on the creative block like this one I’m not gonna think about it 24 seven I pray for them and my humility is enough that I can’t do a single damn thing about any of those issues because they’re 1000 miles away and the sunshine outside in Florida and that’s that.

Got that? We’re done here.
