How Is Everyone?

It's been a few days since posting anything or even being able to read much. Work has been busy and life beyond work is taking some effort.

But, before I complain about life, I'll instead celebrate that I have one.

Each time I stop by a store, there is almost always someone standing (or sitting) outside, begging change from people. I've quit giving money away each time but, I keep a grocery bag full of food to share.

Once-in-awhile, I make an exception but, if someone says they are hungry, I'll feed them. If they're just wanting a beer, they should say so.

I might have to stop giving away food too, though. Just for principle's sake. The reason I got up, myself, is due to getting up and giving life a try again. It wasn't easy, of course. Nothing ever is.

I finally got my first referral hired at work. She's a young, single mother who had told me she was trying everywhere, so I told her about us. I'm tickled by how the railroaders are acting around her, since she's cute. It's funny to watch how they all stand up straight, suck their bellies in and turn polite.

And, I get that referral bonus. That will help, too.

What have you been up to?

You sound like you have your head together the majority of the time and content with life for the most part. I know you have goals yet to reach, but you keep reaching them one at a time. Take care of you, please.

Hello! I'm just plugging along here myself. :) Hope your day has gone well. :)

School and writing is mostly what I've been up to. Today was a teacher workday and I got a lot of work done. Got all my papers graded, grades all into the computer, and all my lesson plans ready for the first week of the second quarter.

Enjoyed reading about your referral. You helped someone out while earning something for yourself. A win-win.

Congratulations on getting the referral bonus.

You got a referral bonus as WELL as providing eye candy for your fellow workers???? That was a good day's work! I am nearly finished writing my thesis (I had to swap two things round) and shortly, I will begin printing it, ready for submission.

That is interesting that you get paid for a referral at work. Are they short of workers?

I'm a few days late, but I'm answering this anyways. I'm fine, thanks, and I hope you're doing well now lol. I can definitely understand things being busy.
