Debt Managements

Flowers, food and a good time are paid for

The tides seem to be turning quickly. After over a year of searching and struggling to find work, I have two part-time jobs that I absolutely love and pay my bills. Then several previous clients reached out just this week for additional work…

  • Changes to their website
  • New advertising campaigns on Facebook
  • Take charge of their social media management
  • And so on and so on…

With no kids and no travel, I only have time and focused energy. This is where I thrive. Busyness, varied tasks, and the freedom to do it whenever and wherever I want. As I write this, I’m sitting in a fast food restaurant (the one I work at) enjoying a drink I brought from home and my free lunch.

There has been no income yet from any of these side jobs, but it will come.

Friday night fun

Last Friday, Amira and I met halfway between her college and our house for dinner. She arrived bearing flowers with a W2 in hand. After our amazing food, we moved on to a bubble tea/café with free wifi and I helped her file her tax returns. This was her first year applying as an independent single person versus a dependent, so she wanted me to take a look at it before she completed it.

We had a great time and I was thrilled that she had her taxes off her plate as she entered the final months of her junior year of college. I was thrilled to spend some quality time with her.

Sarcasm and jokes

Now before everyone gets down my throat, I didn’t ask the princess to pay her taxes. Food and flowers were exactly her goal. A way to show gratitude. I just thought the title was cute.

We are a family of sarcasm and jokes. If you could only see the constant struggle between the gymnast and my sister where she’s constantly hiding and scaring him or…a lot. It’s a family matter. And it’s all in love!

As for my text message to my kids, it was a joke. As a single mother, my boys were always taking on tasks around the house that I couldn’t do or that they loved to do. Having them all be gone for a year was hard, not only on my heart, but things just weren’t getting done. With them gone, if I had been able to, I would have used some help. But this was not an option.

Anyway, it was a joke and my kids were grateful that I had someone to help me. Especially someone we all love to be around. (He’s in college, so the extra money helps him a lot.) The gymnast actually called him and thanked him. It was really sweet.

As for why the princess isn’t included in this text, you might remember, if you’ve been here a while, that she’s allergic to the outside… literally everything. She doesn’t and can’t do yard work without ending up with some severe allergic reactions.
