in the HOUSE

By on November 2, 2002

So I’m moving in the house this weekend. I love this house. Did I mention that already? I feel like I’m sleeping in a tree house. The view is incredible. It’s so nice to have my own space again. The bulk of my stuff will be showing up next Sunday. My roommate, Craig, has at […]

homeless and moving……

By on October 29, 2002

I can’t wait until I’ve found my home and moved into it. Through the generosity of my friends and family, I have had a roof over my head from week to week and haven’t had to spend even one night outside in my car. I have been super blessed. I do have the best family […]

my weekend

By on October 27, 2002

I have been missing my family SO MUCH this weekend. Yeesh! Not just my kids, although that would have been enough, but also my brothers and sisters. I’ve talked to all of my siblings except 2 and my yearning for familial contact has almost been quenched….and I should be alright at least until Thanksgiving weekend […]

One week down…how many to go?

By on October 25, 2002

This week was GREAT! Who knows how often I’m going to get to say that, so I thought I’d put it in bold. I really did like this past week and I’m finding I really like working with numbers and loans etc. And I feel smart and that’s never a bad thing. The guy I […]

There was no foreshadowing that day that could have possibly prepared her for her CAR being STOLEN! dun….dun……dun……! And yet, there it wasn’t, right not where she had parked it only scant […]

It's so weird for me…

By on October 22, 2002

It’s so weird for me to think that I can wear a pantsuit to work with a semi-low-almost-cleavage-showing blouse, drive my car, vote, live on my own, order my own lawn furniture, own a gun, start my own business, shave my head, wear military fatigues if I so desire but there is a woman in […]

1st day of WORK!

By on October 21, 2002

So. I’m a real worker now. How ’bout that? And my title is ‘loan officer’. I sound so…so…official. But today went great and I think I’ll be good at it. Talked to two of my sisters tonight. That’s always fun. They are both trying to think of creative ways to help their little sister over […]

new tat

By on October 20, 2002

Today I got a new tattoo. I drew it and my girlfriend April put it on my upper right arm. She’s an awesome artist who also tattoos. Soon you’ll be able to view her work from my sight. I’ll include a link when it happens. Learned something about honesty and forthrightness…..you can’t have that kind […]

At my friend's house today in LA.

By on October 19, 2002

At my friend’s house today in LA. I’ve missed her. She’s a fellow artist and her work is so powerful! In fact, I’m using one of her pieces as the front cover picture on my book. And I’m trying to figure out how to include a few more of them somewhere inside the book. She […]
