Long time no blog.
I have no real excuses.
I am still working on the post about my trip to the Shenyang hospital. Most of it is done, but I want it to be as perfect as I can get it. I’m a stupid perfectionist, what can I say?
Lately, life has been, well, life. I had $255.00 of work done on my car, so now I am really hurting for money. It took away a month that I could wait on a good job. So, to make sure that I don’t spend another unnecessary penny, I sleep all day. If I am asleep, I can’t drive and waste gas and I definitely can’t eat. Eating cost money unless there is food stashed in the cupboards( I never knew that word was spelled like that). My day, on most days, consists of me getting up and applying for any and all jobs that I can find online and then waiting for one of the 120 jobs I’ve applied to already to call me back for a freaking interview.
As you may have read, Phil was offered a fairly nice job at the State. He was happy. I was happy. Blue Cross Blue Shields(an insurance company) however, was not. They begged and pleaded him to come in for an interview, knowing full well that he already had a job. He decided to go and appease them. I mean, what would it hurt to see what they had to offer? On the day of his interview, they kept him for 3 hours and gave him an offer that the majority of the people on the planet couldn’t turn down. I can’t quote the number they offered because that would be rude, and I don’t think Phil would appreciate it, but I can say that it was a heck of a lot more than the State cared to put on the table. Also, it is probably more than I will ever make annually. So, if I had a Sugar Daddy before, I must have Sugar Daddy Executive now. Heh.
Also in the news of Gabe, my mother has told me that I am allowed to turn my backyard into berry farm.
GabbyGirl1981: I found a raspberry plant that grows in the south
GabbyGirl1981: Now I just need a plot of land so I can start growing blackberries, strawberries, blueberries and raspberries.
GabbyGirl1981: Can I just use the back yard?
GabbyGirl1981: like, all of it?
I was so happy that I started walking my backyard to figure out just how many plants I could stuff back there. If you have ever seen my backyard, it’s not very big, but it could probably hold around 60 plants or so comfortably. Maybe more. I am going to have to get out there and measure and what not before I order anything. First, I need cash, which means I need a job. Hopefully, that will happen before too long. Once I get one, I can order from a nursery in Georgia that carries southern varieties of raspberries and blueberries. For 20 blackberry, 20 raspberry, 10 blueberries, and 10 strawberry bushes, it will only cost $234.00, including shipping. Not that bad really. My only other cost would be any soil I would have to buy, as well as any other garden needs. I might be able to borrow a tiller, but if I can’t, I might be able to rent one. And then, in a year, at max two, I’d have a wonderful crop of berries to sell to my fellow Columbians. I never said how big I wanted my berry farm to be when I told you all about my dreams. My backyard would be a start, and starts are all dreams need.
