Another Stage I'm Not Ready For

Bought my first pair of magnifying reading glasses at the dollar store today. Only the +1.00 strength - having trouble seeing the little numbers on the reports that I'm entering at this temp job. 

Actually, my sight has been getting a bit blurry after reading more than 3 pages of a magazine or 15 pages of a book, and it takes a full 10 seconds to bring labels on the back of food items into focus. 

But still, DAMN! There just seems to be one sign of aging after another anymore.

Summer Vacation Has Come to an End

I was never one of those kids who looked forward to going back to school at the end of the summer. As far as I was concerned, my real life was summer vacation and the school year was just some horrible nightmare that took 10 months from which to awaken.

And so things have not changed in my adulthood.  I went part-time at my job May 2008, left in August and have only worked sporadically and part-time ever since.  Mentally and emotionally this suits me just fine! Financially, no so much.

When I did finally start looking for full-time employment, it wasn't to be had. Still isn't. However, thankfully, I did start what appears to be a long-term temporary assignment - Mon - Fri 9 -5:30pm (only a half-hour for lunch). So just as the student population can practically taste the wonderful idleness of summer vacation. I'm back in the trenches.  Well, at least I do sit near a window.

Relationships are so important in the eyes of God. As His children, He desires that we live in unity and stay connected with one another. When we are transparent and pray for each other, something supernatural takes place. We open the door for God to pour out His abundant blessing and healing in our lives.- Joel Osteen

This daily wisdom came from Osteen today, but actually my sister and I had decided earlier this week to start praying for each other every time (a million x's a day) that the panic of having no income comes over us.  Like a good many in this country, we are ready to move back into financial abundance, but something more than just the economy is blocking our respective path's.

When you meditate, pray and try to attract good things for yourself, there's always a residual negative in the mix that gets in the way of allowing the manifestation of what you say you want.  If someone else is keeping you in good thoughts, it's pure and hopefully magical!

I know your talents, brilliance and energy, now everyone else is going to recognize it in great abundance with positive outcomes.

Too Baby Happy

Had a second date with David we went to the PIFA Broad Street Fair. I've always wanted to take a ride on a Ferris Wheel with a date, but that will have to remain a goal for now cause the line was way too long.

David suggested I take this shot, which is fine cause it does make for an adorable photograph. Problem being he was pointing out cute babies all afternoon; and even though I consider myself passed baby making age, (although Mariah just had twins today!) he seemed taken aback by the fact that I really don't want to have children, nor am I sorry that I didn't have any.  I was taken aback that on a second date we'd even be discussing the topic!
