Progress and the Pinch


(Very Short Entry Warning)

I am making CDs tonight - not as in recording something to a CD, but rather creating the graphic picture of a CD. Which, simple as it sounds, is a pain in the butt, at least to get it looking right. I'm finishing up one site and working on a second one and here's HOPING before it's all said and done, we'll get paid for some of this web work.

Because I got two more inquiries today on building websites.

If even a fraction of the inquiries morph into paid jobs, I might actually be able to do the web biz as my primary job by the beginning of the year. Scary stuff, depending on your own business, but at this point it's a lot less scary than worrying if your "day" job will kill you before you get that far.

I told WildRosie that I'm going to try to stick it out through the end of the year where I am now because that allows me the maximum potential income and will permit me to get transferable insurance for health, life, vision and disability, all at reasonably inexpensive rates. That was the exceptionally cool part - almost all of the insurance with this company can be carried on indefinitely, unlike the typical COBRA coverage.

MC and I are tentatively planning to be married on the Saturday before Christmas, so hopefully I can add him to the insurance, too. We know some people won't be able to make it to the wedding because it's Christmas weekend. Others will be MORE likely to make it because it's Christmas weekend. And of course at this point it's all pretty nebulous because it hinges on when his divorce becomes final. But at least we're finally beginning to see the light at the end of the tunnel.

Before - After

In the grander scheme of things, no soul can truly be replaced. Each one of us has a place in the universal tapestry. We each contribute our own color and texture. When one thread is snipped too soon, it distorts all the threads around it. Other lives can unravel and tear. If the wrong thread is ripped away, the whole fabric of life becomes dangerously fragile.
