Silver Lining

So last week I lost a overnight Nanny gig because I apparently charge too much. Wow did that really tick me off, but I kept myself pretty calm.  I know everything happens for a reason.
If I would have been watching their kids this week, I would have missed seeing Jordy Nelson at work last night, wouldn't have today off to relax and get my apartment ready for guests and octoberfest. I wouldn't have the opportunity to Nanny for a different family all day friday, or be able to work my kids club shift at work.

Last night I got a message from a different family to day sit for 7 days. I am ecstatic!!! I love the kiddos so much, and I will make. Nearly double what the first family was paying. They are a great bunch of kids!!! I am so excited to see them again.

I feel I made have lost the point of this post. I am Happy. And when I'm not happy I am trying to work on my perspective. I have faith if I keep moving forward, everything will fall into place.
Next thing to work on is finding a new job!

Paper is not a myth

    So I have not been on here in what seems to be forever. I have exactly 1 week until I am 28 years old. Everything is good. I am alive and enjoying life.
     Don't get me wrong, it has been tough, but I am better for it. I moved out of my parents over a year ago.. I love my urban apartment, or as urban as it can get in the Fox cities. I am a single lady living in a 1 bedroom apartment that I have made into my own creative space. I can finally paInt every week if I want to. Today I did this. Simple but therapeutic.

What to change right now?!

Wow the following is a post I never posted.  Two months after I wrote it I moved out. I am now test driving a car this week. I know it's taken me a longtime to get to this point, but I am here and working on my happiness.  I am proud of where I am and I need to tell myself that more. I am happy. :)

I need an instant change. This week! I decided. The apartment I am waiting for is taking far too long to be available. So I am giving up on it.
Options of things to change:
New  Car
New apartment

My current truck is a POS that belongs to my dad. I dont want to put any money into it.

My current home is also a not so fancy place that belongs to and still inhabited with my parents.

I need a car to drive around my niece and other kids I babysit safely.

I need a new apartment so my niece can spend the night so my sister can have a relaxing weekend   (she is expecting another).

New apartment so I can be free

New car for the same reason

New apartment so I can decorate my own zen area

Sunny Mountain days

So I have just returned from vacationing in Colorado! It was beautiful!  I wish we had mountains here in Wisconsin, but in Colorado they wish they had water in abundance such as our lakes and rivers.
I saw 2 fox and a gang of Elk and 2 stray cats, and 3 dogs. I didn't get to see the bear and mountain lions I was hoping to see, but I am super glad it was too cold for those snakes.

I could talk about everything I saw and how it all looked, but just like a picture, my words would never do the mountains any justice.  What I can talk about is altitude adjustments. I learned the hard way that you can not drink like you are still at the small 790 ft or elevation of Appleton Wisconsin. Nope, You go to the Mile High city and have a few you will most likely fall down a mountain.  Next time I go there I have to pay attention to what I consume. Or I could waste almost a whole day and set myself up for horrible disappointments for the rest of it. 

I only fell about 4 times! Usually I am not as lucky, but somewhere in the mix of it all I did obtain strep throat. maybe it was from  the airport? or fresh chicken eggs for bfast?  who will ever know?! But It could not have possibly been from making out with that stranger in Thunder and Buttons Bar on karaoke night  in Old Colorado City. He has since told me  he has not been sick. So I give it a week and I think he will probably come down with it. I already apologized in advance. I hate being the one to share diseases. Id much rather just share chocolate or cereal or something, but never illnesses.  Meh nothing a few antibiotics can't fix. Wow this sounds like the the clap. Rest assured knowing I am a bit classier than that.\

I will definitly Wrtie more about this trip later, but I need a nap.
