I did get some considerable writing done yesterday morning, I finished Chapter 1. It is a short chapter and the very first pass. I know that it will fatten up the more times I edit and revise it, trust me, I will do that a lot. I started on Chapter 2 this morning and got a bit done.
Yesterday I made the same mistake that I have made before and as a result Ace did not charge, but I did use him to charge my cell phone last night and he is charging now.
I returned to a nice quiet spot near a grocery store, with the idea of going for a bike ride. In truth, I relaxed and didn’t do anything. I will tell you this; the lack of reliable AC power sure does cut down on my messing around on the computer time.
I know that I need to get out more and I will, once I get more comfortable camping and parking in parking lots. I have yet to sit outside under my awning or dare fire up my barbeque. It is bold enough of me to put my slide-out out (it gives me more room inside).
I am looking forward to making serious headway on these cards, thereby making all of this upheaval worth it. I had planned to put at least 500 on the card this paycheque, and I may do that. I have to pay my bills and set aside money for the trip. After that I can look and see if it is possible, I hope so, as then I would be on track for the end of August payout of the first card.
The one bright spot is that this paycheque marks the first one since turning 18, (a *gulp* few years ago) that I will don’t owe anybody rent . . . think about that. Wanda’s payment keeps coming out of the bank every second Thursday, like clockwork.
In general, I seem to be in a constant state of waiting for something to happen, for something better to come along. I have so many ideas, so many dreams but all of them require money and at the very least, me to be somewhat debt free in order to pursue them.
I dare not do anything risky anytime soon, I can’t rock the boat until I have my credit cards paid off and a small nest egg put away to live on as I do something crazy and fun. That does not stop me from actually getting out of the trailer and living life.
It is a slow process and in truth I hate and suck at change, but I am getting better. This whole process has scared me and had me second-guessing myself like crazy. I simply decided and continue to decide to push through that and not let the fear and what others may think stop me from doing what I need to do for me, at this point in my life.
So, I will leave you all with this, if you happen to be in Calgary, drop me a message and we can get together for a visit. I may have beer, but I will certainly have a barbeque, and always, always have coffee standing by.
