Hotter than hell in Texas. My electric bill exceeds my car note. I hate that. Bound to be a way around this. I'm looking into a windmill. Which leads me to a question: if you plug a fan into a wall socket that is getting power generated from a windmill, and point that sucker at the windmill, causing it to turn, and therefore create electrical power, have you, in essence, created a circle of perpetual motion? I need to stop smoking this shit.
This weekend: I have been such a great person! I visited friends that I have neglected. I went to a birthday party. I took a friend to dinner that had just had a week of HELL waiting for a biopsy, and celebrated that her lesion was benign, I met my sister for drinks and a snack at some terrible hour after my bedtime, last night, just because I could tell she wanted company. And, I painted my downstairs bathroom, and hung a linen cabinet, and a medicine cabinet in it. It looks GREAT, by the way. Like 'Better Homes and Gardens'.
I have been working on my newest website account. I'm very excited about THAT!
Next week is a long work week. I'm going to work REALLY hard next week. Just work and sleep. I'm going to work really hard from now until Labor Day. And, then, I'm taking a nice holiday.
I'm a hermit. It is difficult to bust me out of my cave (unless you pay me really well, or some SERIOUS fun is involved). So, as I was very social, this weekend, I feel that I have exercised good mental health, and made steps towards normalcy.
I would really rather just write, do art work, and have great sex.
Which leads me to my next bit of news: I'm about to go to work for a big assed law firm making twice the money I make now. I've been doing contract work for them helping them get a handle on their info management. They are pleased with the results, and the solutions that I have implemented for them. I have them set up to remotely access their electronic data from their SMARTPHONES and PDA's. Very handy. I also have their due diligence schedule set up on a calendar that reminds them what they need to have finished and when, with links to all pertinent files.
I love the project that I am currently doing for the energy company. But, I do NOT want to go to ANGOLA. Ever. lol And, they keep bringing up the subject. Anyway- I can't pass up the $$$ that the law firm offers.
I continue my fight to balance time for myself with the rest of the demands I face as a single woman, and mother to every wayward soul that comes to me in need. I strive to be less intense. I look for ways to soften my edges. But- I know that the fact that I will not settle for anything less than excellent will always make it impossible for me to be a soft, sweet, feminine 'thang'. I have to be strong. I have to be tough enough to stop people from running all over me. If I was not strong, and intelligent- every f***ing mechanic, electrician, salesman, and all of the other slick indivuals out there ready to take all of my money would pluck me like a chicken. I work hard, and I'm KEEPING it.
I have work to do. A story to finish. And tomorrow to prepare for. I guess I'm blessed.
