Saturday, March 22nd, 2014

It’s nine o’clock on a Saturday. Well, it’ll be later than that when you read this post. I seem to have ground a little too hard on the last story and find myself in a fog today. Certainly things like the laundry got done, but nothing creative. I feel like a lout when that happens. To be in the flow of writing is such a wonderful experience. It’s direction in an otherwise listless existence. There’s even a writer’s prompt I’m halfway interest in. It seems as though I’ve not the energy to answer it right yet.

I love Saturday night. It’s a night I like to be out of the house. Unfortunately, I’m trying to figure out if it’s worth spending the money to sit at a bar and pay $5.00 plus tip for a Fat Tire. Now before I hear “that’s cheaper than (location)” I’ll remind you they pay us less in the Fields. It’s a wash. I suppose I could hit the $2.00 Bud Light specials… no, I’ll go without before I go Bud Light.

The additional work is still in the searching phase. It seems if I don’t have a Commercial Driver’s License (re: trucking) or manufacturing experience, I’m out of luck right now. There is an ad for an exotic dancer. I’m sure they’re talking about females. Even if they weren’t, I’m not exactly dancing material. I even hate doing the hokey pokey.

One thing that cutting back has helped me with is cooking at home. Granted most people would get tired of baked chicken, but its time delay lets me do other things around the house. Normally, I’m the type to focus on what I’m doing with little distraction but manual work’s always multitasking. Funny how that works.

My mind’s getting to me. Where did I put my car keys?

  1. I’d love to be able to cook at home right now. MS food is tearing me up (although I did have a home cooked meal at Stephen King’s last night.)

  2. Personally I’ve always thought that you would make a fantastic exotic dancer – you have that Kurgan in the Highlander Vibe, but then I am a pervert and forget that you are probably too young for me to have thoughts like that 😉 j/k I hope things work out for you and that you find something good that leaves you time to write!

  3. Had to Google “Fat Tire”…Belgian beer’s always expensive. $5 buys me a reasonable bottle of good red wine. Keep off the Bud Lights..:)

    Have you considered freelance accounting? Of course you may have to get your CPA cert back, which might be more trouble than it’s worth.

    • I’d only have to reactivate my license if I were to prepare taxes or audit, as far as I know. That’s something I’ll be on the fence about for a long time. Being a CPA was detrimental to my health, and I’m not being dramatic about that. I had so much stress, my ears rung from the high blood pressure.

      No one has to be licensed to do bookkeeping, although there are several who want to sell you on certification. I’ve had enough practice I don’t need to flash certificates. If I could find anyone willing to hand their books over to me, I’d gratefully do it, but most people around here seem to take care of that in-house or send them to a CPA firm.

    Isn’t Fat Tire a Washington beer? And I could eat a roasted chicken every day, never get sick of chicken. Hope your Sat night turned out well!

  6. It’s a Colorado beer. We just got availability a few months ago because of distribution channels. I’ve enjoyed it ever since I was in North Carolina and missed it for the longest time.
