Good stuff happening

May 15th, 2012 at 05:53 pm

I worked 15 hours today in the polls and at the end of the night, we learned the 2nd budget vote FAILED by about 100 votes. The people have spoken! And that means that 1. my property taxes will be lower and 2. I get to work a 3rd time as a poll worker.

Then there are still the Democratic primary in August and of course the national election, so i have the potential of earning $875 from working the polls 5x this year.

My old real estate client said they have several new communities for me to write sales brochures, so that's also great; I haven't gotten any work from them since February!

AND, a SECOND person is coming up here Friday after work to buy more of my perennials. This one wants 5 flats of lily of the valley, which grows like crazy here.

I also yesterday finished up my 3rd guardian ad litem report for someone and am just waiting for a small final piece of the report; then I can bill her, though I don't charge her much. $87 so far and then the final piece.

I wish I could relax tomorrow but I can't...have to go to my normal p/t job.

    I am glad you are still able to string all these things together. Your industry and ingenuity really impress me. So many people in your situation would give up, but you don't, even when you are discouraged and frustrated. I really admire that in you.

    Thanks, LR, but really, you can't just give up...not with bills to pay. It kind of reminds me of how in the press you read a story about someone who did something really extraordinary and they everyone calls them a "hero," when they were really doing what had to be done in the circumstances.

    It is nice to have some options for your additional jobs like that, and when they are interesting and lead to more income, then all the better! I hope you have some insurance that the trend continues... good luck.
