I Know You Were Expecting This Sooner…

First I would like to say thank you for all your patience in the last few days. I am sorry I have not been able to be around to all the sites on my lists nor do much on this blog for a while. If you have ever tried to get loose ends together to start a new business or had a problem with a new vehicle immediately after purchase you probably have some idea of how hectic the last week has been.


Since I have started posting again a little on the blog for business and now for my own pleasure, I should be able to begin to have a little time free for myself again. I am currently starting back with 40 Days and 40 Nights entries and maybe posting a few poems as soon as I can get some of the older on transferred from paper. Right now I still have some things like paperwork with the government to straighten out before I can slow down too much during the week. I have a lot of driving to do associated with all that which must be done before the end of the month. I also have to clear up some overextension with a few institutions I do financial transactions with currently.


If you see anything you might be interested in buying from me and could possibly do it this weekend it would be a great help to me. I can do no more for the business until I turn around some products.


I am able to sell through PayPal on eBay and anyway Amazon can sell and item. I need the sales to come through eBay right now because there is no hold on that account for until Monday at this particular outlet like there is at Amazon. I would love to sell a few copies of OneNote 2003 this weekend. I can highly recommend that program because I have one already installed on my computer and enjoy blogging with it a lot so far.


As far as my mother is concerned I am not in the best of positions because I made the mistake of asking her for a few dollars to help me cover gas on a day my funds were very limited and she became very upset. I really was not expecting her to react with such volatile anger about such a thing, but she felt I was trying to be extremely hateful. She says she will never ride in my Jeep again and that is a real shame because I enjoy driving in it much more than her Ranger. I did not mean any harm. I only wanted a few dollars to help me fill the tank one time. I was never expecting the woman to pay me all the time. She knows I am struggling with money issues right now. I would never have gotten so upset with her if she were in the situation I am right now. She is not accepting my apology, nor accepting that I have said that I am very sorry she was hurt at all. She says if I was really sorry I would never have asked the question and cannot understand that I very honestly meant no harm.


As you may or may not already know, my Mom did lend me the money invested in this computer and several other bigger purchases I have made. I have now made her so angry she really would like to tell me that I may never use this machine again unless I pay her all the money back. In fact, I had to plead with her pretty much constantly for about three hours not to do that to me since all the business depends on internet connection for me. I really need to generate as much cash as I can this weekend so I can give her more money right away. I have already given her $100.00 toward that debt with her this month, however, I really need to give her no less than that amount as soon as the banks open on Monday again if possible, so she does not feel I am so at her mercy about computer use. That is also another reason I did not want to spend too much time on here with the computer until she began to whine a little less at me. I hope all of my regular visitors may understand why I am currently trying to appease what I consider my worse tyrant right now. If I do not give her enough money soon she shall threaten me again with taking my computer use away from me. I really rather that not happen. I do not like any power struggle with her when she is being what I consider a bitch.


This is one other reason I am coming before each of you basically begging you if you possibly feel you may be able to buy something from me this weekend. I am willing to sell most things at a very small profit maybe none at all including shipping this weekend. If you do see fit to help me I will be forever in your debt. I do have some personal artwork I already have on line that I am willing to sell if needed only over this weekend right now. For instance I can sell anything that I can make a print of that is currently on the website here with my signature and a number affixed to the reverse side so it is considered a real print and not just a copy. You all may also ask me about giving you those I still have originals in the frames of those for a little over what I am willing to sell the copies for, only because I really need funds right now. I will be putting more things on the blog for sale as I can and most are brand new items. If you are at all interested please check back as you may. I do have some other things I intend to put up today so some of what I already posted may disappear into archives. Just leave me a note with the picture of any product if you are interested in it or simply have a question about my price.


I am trying to post here before I ever post anywhere else, because I would rather my friends have what I am selling this weekend. I must warn you that I may take a little extra time to get an item actually on eBay.com or Amazon.com because I have not started making many ads there so far and am also somewhat unskilled with the interface right now.


If I can I will get back again soon and post some poetry, but for right now I think I shall just go back to what I need to get done next. I will leave you a quick entry I was able to update a little.


I also want to say thanks to everyone who has recently stopped by and left me a comment I should get back to answering each one very soon, but I may not be able to catch up on all the ones currently showing right away. Thanks for being so understanding.


Checking In: Days 1 – 10


Journal Prompts and My Responses


Reflect on and review days 1 – 10. Make a list of three things you have learned about yourself:


  • I have learned that I have some very vivid sensual memories
  • I am able to concentrate on specific things and write about them in detail
  • I have some things I need to work on


Make a list of three questions you wonder about:


  • Can I really write a novel?
  • Is self-esteem possible for me?
  • Will I make it through the whole 40 days?


How has this piece of time inspired or informed your intention?


  • I feel more creative because I am doing some work daily.
  • I still feel I lack some motivation.
  • My self-criticism seems a little better.
  • My imagination is beginning to be more active.
  • Success is still something to reach.
  • I am writing daily and am thinking about some art ideas.


I promise to try to be here more often, but I am saying I may still be very busy right now. For instance at the moment Alex is trying to edit my rather bizarre document that was too wordy when you last saw it. His is much better even now than mine would ever become. This is mostly because he is a better writer than I will ever be when it comes to anything that might be other than a poem. I am a pretty efficient poet, but not even there do I outshine Alex. Hopefully you will soon see some of what I am attempting to tell you about his creative genius.


I must go for now. Hope each of you has a very good weekend. I am having a good day so far, if something just sells I would be much relieved.


Hugs and Smiles,

Jo Ann

    It\’s obvious to me that you love your space & especially writing. I like to drop by & see how you are going. You truly have some lovely things here in your space.There seems to be some confusion at the moment & people are taking you the wrong way. This must be upsetting to read for you…although I\’m sure they mean well…I think they are just concerned …that your style has changed just a little …maybe they just don\’t fully understand I see a beautiful heart trying to express herself freely & without reservation. It\’s rare indeed to find someone as genuine & honest about their own life as you.Do what pleases you most, & feel happy inside, knowing you have a good following. I keep coming back for more & to feel the smiles you always showKenny
