2/28/2020 Fun Day Off

Today is my day off which is much needed.  I am a hair  stylist with a HRM degree!  Chicago IL is not a great place to find work.  It is if you love to spend 90 %  of your life in a car and working downtown,  although most people wish for life work balance and it seems not to be around.

I don’t get two days off in a row or the weekends off.  Its a horrible schedule.

For fun I do diamond art, journal,  read, organize and clean.

Have a great day everyone!

Merry Christmas Everyone 2017

 

As we prepare for New Years, be happy, healthy, safe!  From our family to Yours.

On the Road again!

Okay, thanks for stopping by my blog.  From October of 2016 to April 15th I was in OHIO.  I loved it there, but there were no jobs for me.  I am in College to get my Human Resource Degree (Masters).  I love to learn and study new things, and I love the challenge of being 50 years old and going back to college.

Low and behold, where I lived in Ohio, our cousins “got separated.”  I moved him to Florida, Jacksonville.  There were cousins there to let us all stay with them.  That lasted a month!  I went out of my mind.  Florida is too hot for me.  I had to take a job cleaning a hotel.  It was the worst job I ever had in my entire life, but I had to make money to get back to Ohio, to get my three cats, and then go to Illinois, where I had a Cosmetology job lined up.

The kicker is that after 13 hours of being on the road from FL to OH- we hit a DEER! It was not too bad but enough to scare the bejeezees out of me!  We kept going.  Mind you our breaks were badly needing a new set on the front.  It was a miracle we made it to OHIO.  We did get the cats and left for IL.  The worst part was going through the Chicago Skyline area!  Tollway.  So on May 15th I believe we got into IL, the day of Easter..or was it Sunday?

We had little money.

We stayed with friends for a month.

Then moved 2x’s since then.  Now it is the end of July, and almost August when the kids go back to school.

I am studying a lot, learning a lot.  Praying to find a place to live…permanently.
