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.
Today is 3 months since mom has been gone. And it still hurts. Not as much, but still. Last night had a cry it out session with my sister. Everthing reminds me of her, she is in everything I see, or hear. Mom I miss and love you.
This was my mom as a kid, I can see the resemblance in all three of us, my sister and brother. She was an only child by her mother. Strong willed, and so very independent. And so very missed. My mom was a giver, she was nice and caring; but she was also a Scorpio, and if you got on her bad side, you better watch out! There are a lot of personality traits I got from her, some not so good, but most very good. I am so blessed to have had her for 43 of my years. Mom I love you.
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!
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!
In bloom. Taken last spring, when the Bluebonnets were in high form and bloom. Mom loved the season change, when the blue bonnets were vivid in the hill country. A photo of her and her husband in the blue bonnets. I am going to miss that with her. But I have a photo, and the memories of that amazing day. I love you mom, may there be many blooming and vivid flowers for you.
