Live from the couch, it's me!

I really have little to say or blog about today, but that's never stopped me from posting before, has it? Ever since I got back to Utah late Tuesday night, I've been getting increasingly sicker. I've yet again picked up a nasty winter cold. Pick your favorite cold symptom, and I have it. But really, who wants to read a blog about the pile of used Kleenex I am sitting under?
Or I could blog about how freaking cold it is here. It was a whopping 17 degrees when I went out to my car this morning. Yesterday was my first ever experience with my car being frozen shut. That was a new one for me. It was fun. Really. But you really know it is cold when the thermocoupler in your gas fireplace is too cold to ignite. So instead of curling up by the fireplace with my blanky, Kleenex, and, I am in my bed, with lots of blankets, Kleenex, and And yet, I'm still cold.
But I need to get over this bug and quickly. This is my big week in court! I finally get to sue my old employer in small claims court. I really have no idea how this is all going to turn out, so I'm not going to speculate much on it now. But please be crossing your external appendages and be praying for me around 2 pm on Tuesday. I really want this all to come to an end.

Whether I win or lose (but i really want to win!), I'm going to get a part-time job to help make some extra cash for the next few months, plus get me through the winter blues. ("SAD" anyone?) Seasonal Affectiveness Disorder, Utah's freezing temps, plus inversion and no sunshine, and my lifestyle of sitting on the couch round the clock is killing me. I need to get out more! So a part-time job it is!
The extra cash will come in very handy as I get ready to move in early February as well. Granted, that is all hinging on winning the lawsuit as well. But we'll come back to that after Tuesday. Oh, but the good news is I finally picked a house and have a verbal agreement with the landlord. And I LOVE the house!
So, think happy thoughts for me! I need to get over this cold so I'm strong enough in court (right now just walking to my car wipes me out), and so I can start working a second job.
Oh and if you have any suggestions for a good 15-20 hr/wk second job that will get me out of the house, let me know!

  1. You poor thing. Being sick is lousy. Achy and draining - awful. I realize you know that but I'm just being sympathetic.

    I'll be praying for your court case. Can't see how the judge could see it any way but in your favor.

    Can't wait to see photos of the new house (interior) --
    And as for a part-time job - well, my most recent experience was at a portrait studio (Sears/ Target) but you're likely to only get 10 hours a week right now. (after the holiday rush) - but it's fun!

    Or, maybe you can work the check-in desk at a gym or yoga studio - the benefits of which is usually free use of the gym or studio.


Thanks for leaving a comment!
