“Do what you love to do” or How on earth do I know what that is???

I always know I need to write most when I don’t want to. I’m doing it anyway. Chickened out (bawk bawk) of the platelet/plasma shot; my husband is now woefully totally unemployed. My mother, finally backed down and while NEVER apologizing (what’s that?) she called me. Her way of expressing remose perhaps–or is that wishful thinking? Yesterday was an emotional roller coaster which of course ended up in me gulping down 2 butterfingers, 1 hershey’s bar, and a couple of other pieces of candy (but HEY, they were all HALLOWEEN sizes so that doesn’t even add up to one whole bar, right?)  Before that I had a piece of multigrain bread with mayo (light) cheddar and turkey. ..so much for my attempt at vegetarianism. Not sure I can do it but at least I am eating healthier things – today I had lentil soup.

You know how Oprah and everyone else says “do what you love best?”  That’s the thing. I don’t know what I like do to best that would create money for me. I like to eat, I like to watch tv and movies, i love mothering–so far coming up with nothing. Of course i LOVE writing (especially because of my one fan) but pay the bills it does not do. So, while I am lying here hoping for my torn ligament (or broken foot as my daughter says) it’s something to contemplate. HEY, ANYONE KNOW ANYONE AT THE FOOD NETWORK??!!!

  1. You’d be amazed at the things you like to do when you really think about it. Do you realize how much time you HAVEN’T had since you feel the pressure is on? Give yourself a BREAK!!!! Take a breath…

    Sit down… grab a pad a paper, create your personal resume. What are you good at? You said it… you are a MOTHER. Hell, that is one hell of a job. Do you know how many people CANNOT do that job? That is the hardest job on EARTH! You can multi-task! Do not underestimate what you can do! I also think you should not underestimate your skills at writing. Be confident. It’s not easy, but do it. You. Can. Do. This.

    And.. to answer your question… of course those candy bars did NOT add up to one! hahahaha! I’m with you too…

    And our dogs must be related, my dog is about 7 years old as well. That is soooo funny!!!! I’m not sure you can go vegetarian full stop AND while your under so much stress. You may just want to give yourself a little bit of a break and just take things one day at a time. There’s a lot going on.

    My son graduates this year. I can’t imagine life without him in the house. My daughter is 6 years behind him so we have time in between… but I feel the time just whooshing by!

    I think the husband, the mom, the son, the daughter, the diet, the emotions, the health… don’t ya think that’s a lot to deal with at one time??? Eat the damn chocolate!!
