A Wish For All…


I have been physically sick for the past week and a half and have been out of work due to it. I had a stomach virus and just cannot seem to shake the weakness it brought on. I am to go to a stomach specialist tomorrow to see what he thinks might be causing this sense of malaise.


The up side has been that I am home for the Christmas holiday and getting to spend some time with Alex and Mom. I really am not looking forward to returning to work. I have been considering turning in my resignation.


Since I last wrote I returned the Jeep so that I do not have that huge expense hanging over me anymore. I am driving and buying my Mom’s 1988 Buick Regal.


The bankruptcy should be finalized any time now and I will be out from under all the debt I had against me. It amazes me that credit card companies are calling offering me lines of credit. I am belligerently against getting any credit cards ever again. I just wish they would stop calling and harassing me about taking new ones.


Alex is excited about going in the Marines and we think he passed all his classes this semester. I have not gotten him much for Christmas. Just do not know what to get because he has so much and too he will be leaving in the not too distant future so things like new computers and such seem overkill. He did finally take delivery on the car his father had promised him for years. Actually it is a different vehicle but it runs.


I hope all my friends in Spaces have a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year full of prosperity and the blessings each of you so richly deserve. May many of your dreams come true in the coming days.



Jo Ann

    Hello Jo Ann,I was so glad that on my first day back that you had left a note. Thank you for stopping by and leaving me a message. It is so nice to hear from you. Wonderful honest sharing blog that you put up. I really like that about you – your honesty and your poetry. I hope the doc finds out what\’s ailing with your stomache. My son just got over a terrible case of the stomache flue. Put him out of work for two weeks and he is just getting his strength back, but slowly.I was going to leave you this little Christmas tree that I created yesterday for my Christmas greetings this weekend, when I was so surprised to see it here already. (I went out visiting spaces a little bit late last nicht so it was hangiing around) They even used my little add – Just a note. I have decided to add it anyway.Just a Note:________*_______***______*****_____*******____*********___***********__*************..MERRY CHRISTMAS..~*~*Big Hug!*~*~*~~*~*~Jossie*~*~*~*

    JoAnn -I\’m so glad to see you posting and giving an update on what\’s been going on in your world. Sorry to hear about the financial problems – I went through Chapter 7 in the early 90\’s … mainly due to manic spending spree\’s and companies just kept giving me more credit line. I couldn\’t handle it back then at all, it was a mess. You\’ll come out okay, things are probably rough now but it will ease with time. I hope you have a very Merry Christmas and have a happy and healthy New Year! :)Many hugs – Stephen

    Me, too…I\’ve been through chapters 7 and 13. It was scary at first, like being a big failure, but what a relief!I vote that you keep your job for the extra cash and to have a daily routine to keep you going (unless that would void your SSI disability). I am truly impressed that you have stayed with it, many people I have known would have given up…

    Jo, you are truly a wonder. The definition of courage is all about perserverance, and that my friend, you have! DC
