Well what we all expected, has come about. Today we were officially told the store is closing. Something we knew would happen sooner or later. Not sure as to the last day, but the liquidation is about to start. So even though I have been putting in aps, need to up my game. I hope we get our pay come the first. To be continued!!!

To my apartment, me and the little girl. She sniffed, slinked, and scurried around the place. Meowing loudly, finally getting familiar with things. She loves the new cat tree, got a real bargin at pet smart. What I thought was 99 bucks, was on sale for 69 dollars. Oh believe me, I spent money last night, between the cat and some food for myself, I almost wept, but it was necessary.
I now really look forward to coming home after a long days or nights work to see my kittie girl. Now that she is mine and my responsibility. Anyways, there are great responsibilities as a adult I have to do Monday, one of which, need to update my resume. I am trying to stick with this job, for at least a year, not sure that will happen, as so much nonsense is going on there. So that is that.
One thing that was certain about my mom… she loved to fish! Put her on any pond or by any lake, and she would have a smile on her face. I did love that. This photo was taken in San Angelo, we just decided to go back and do some fishing that day. I will definitely miss theses times, but here’s to memories. Much love mom.
Daylights savings time begins again, this time we spring forward, so we lose an hour. I like that it gets dark later now, that is good for me; since I ride the bus, and I hate walking to the bus stop at 6 and it is dark, so this gives me a little more light out. The days are just running into one another, so quickly that I am not able to catch up with things. Next week, it will be 3 months since the passing of my mom, I still cry, last night I had a good cry with my sister. I will be so happy once I can stop crying, and just have that sense of peace and calmness inside of me, no tears, just being able to talk about her, without having to tear up every time. In time, in time it will get there, just have to be patient.
Lots is going on with work, lots of things we are doing, we got in live plants and flowers, and they are selling like crazy, I have been thinking that soon, I will get some. I have been working hard this week.
I have been working on getting my apartment ready to receive my cat princess. I will be getting her a new litter box, and also a new cat tree, so that she will be right at home. Also getting a new sectional and area rug. Once I get that done and situated, I will post photos.
South by Southwest is in town now, not plan on going to any of it, I just do not really have time or patience for it. Anyhoo, life goes on. I at least have Monday off, so will make the best of it. Until the next time friends, enjoy!
So today got the notion to try some bbq, I have tried Bill Millers, and it was crap. So today went for the one down the street from the apartments. Branch Bbq, I got two plates, one for me, one for my dad.
This was the 5 meat sampler. Rib,sausage, brisket,pork loin,chicken, two sides, beans potato salad,coleslaw. Cherry pie and pecan pie. Spent 50 bucks to see if it was good. The out come was 😝👎👎. We sampled it all, and the only decent thing was the chopped beef. The other things were flavorless. It was bland and dry. Nothing spectacular about the pies, and well fifty bucks tossed in the trash. I definatly will not go back there. Even the sauce could not save this bland bbq. Moving on. Will try others along the way. To be continued…
It’s been a while since I’ve written anything on the regular. I am very slowly getting myself back. I know it will take a while. Always a work -in-progress. So this morning, the bus did not come, there I and another woman staning there. She calls cap metro customer service, they say it is a mechanical issue, but do not offer when ir if they will send a back-up bus. See this lousy route as it may be only has one bus making the rounds wvery our on the weekends, and two busses back and forth on the weekdays. And it goes in a short loop, not like it was goong all the way to China and back, but just to one park and ride, then to the Howard Station. Anyhoo, this lady calls a ride share and tells me I can ride with her to the park and ride. Now that is mighty generous. That is my shining star of the morning.
So getting back to myself;I’ve been cleaning my apartment, and making some changes. So that it will accommodate my new kiddo. Princess.
Who is now my responsibility since my mom passed away. I am getting her a new cat tree, and hopes she takes the move and new accommodations well. To be continued on that!
This painting comes from a co-worker who is very artistic. I hope she sells more of her work. It will hang over my fireplace once I get thing situated.
Winter is subsiding, soon Spring will be upon us. Today is turing out like a spring day, so lovely in the sun. I am enjoying it while it is here.
Here’s to getting back… All aboard!
Church was stellar today, life class equally refreshing. Just listing to praise and worship songs on pandora, makes me cry, these songs are the songs we both loved,and sang in church, and with one anither, they fill my heart. I know she woul be happy right now knowing I am in church, that we all are in church. Getting closer to God, His Word. Today I am starting Proverbs in the Bible, I will read a passage each day. God has done so much for my soul and spirit, in these times. It is I who must draw closer to him.
I totally admire my friend Olivia, who went to Honduras, mission work. God is totally blessing this woman, she is truly the church in this world. I have been thinking of volunteering in the church bookstore. To be continued…
I know there are some major areas in my life that need cleaning up, I pray to God everyday to guide my steps, to give me discernment, and give me wisdom to see the truth of things, to send the ones that are supposed to be in my life, and the ones that are not to remove the ones that do not belong.
Did God remove mom from my life, because of a journey I need to be on, without her, I do wonder, but there are roads we have to walk. We will never be alone, because He is with us. Gods reasons are not our reasons. A time,and season for all. It has been 4 Sundays since she passed. I cried today. It will get better, this I know in my soul.
I love you mom.
My mom loved to fish, her and my dad, and all my family, loved fishing. When we found this area in Marble Falls, this was our go to fishing place. We would be there almost every week that we could. Mom had go fever, she was always ready to go, go, go. I love this photo, because it shows her in a place of peace. I loved to sit out there with her and my dad, and just watch them fish. My mom loved to fish.
