Updates and MORE Updates!

 Hello my friends!  

One of the last things I posted about were a lot of the reasons regarding why I HAVEN'T posted much this past year...I hope you are interested in hearing about some updates which are GOOD!

  • My oldest brother is ill - NOT GOOD!
Update:   My brother has received a new liver and is doing very well indeed!  VERY, VERY GOOD!
  • Then our daughter Julia moved out - VERY MIXED FEELINGS ON THAT ONE ...
Update:  There has been resolution on that situation and it is VERY, VERY, VERY GOOD!

You can read about it here -  October Moon Herbals
  • Then I opened a booth in a Vintage Mall in Columbus - WHAT?  I DON'T HAVE ENOUGH TO DO?
Update: Of the 6 months I've been in the Mall, I've only not made my rent of $40.00 for 2 of those months.  One month I paid $1.41 and the other I paid $13.41.  So, I'm ahead  around $339.34,  which makes it worth my while to have it open.
  • Then Tamara and Mama Kitty moved to Mexico - THAT SHOULD BE EXCITING ... & GOOD!
Update:  Tamara and Mama Kitty are moving back this week, October 17 to be exact. VERY GOOD!
  • Then our son Patrick accepted a job offer that moved him to New York City - VERY GOOD!
 Update:  He's still really liking his job and living on the East Coast! And he's started making some sales on Craigslist!  Yea!
  • I've been listing books on Amazon, I now have over 2200 books listed, sales have sucked big time - WHAT'S UP WITH THAT AMAZON? 
Update:  I now have 2236 listed and had a really great August & September - Sold a combined total of 75 books for a gross of 1835.42!  How great is that?

Up-Update: To date in October I have made a total of TWO sales and had 1 return, for a gross of  $5.95....Seriously Amazon...WHAT IS UP WITH THIS?????
  • I've been dithering about opening a shop on Etsy - PROCRASTINATION...
Update: Uh, no....more procrastination...
  • I've also been dithering about opening a shop on eBay - MORE PROCRASTINATION!
  • We have been fostering Pat's 2 cats - Nandi & Fro since May - CAN YOU SPELL, I'M  ATTACHED?
Update:  Nandi and Fro moved out Labor Day weekend and now Lucien aka Fenie (Julia's cat) has been enjoying the hospitality of "Casa de Tomas" for some weeks now and the end is only going to be in sight when I return from my annual road trip to go see said brother (see above) in Nebraska...leaving on Wednesday, the 17th, aka mine and Noel's 26th Anniversary.  GOOD to go on a trip and I have a very patient and long-suffering husband who encourages me to do what I want to do and be exactly who I I lucky or WHAT?
  • In 2 weeks Pat will be here so he and Noel can move his stuff and his cats up East - MIXED, MIXED, MIXED!
 Update:  All have adapted well to the new apartment in Bayonne, NJ and I'm looking forward to a trip to go see them sometime in the Spring of 2014!

Current News:  Tuesday, October 15 - will be my 63rd birthday!  I rewarded myself by starting a new blog!

Check it out and let me know what you think...who knows where it will all lead?

Till we meet again....
