I am looking through old blogs and finding posts that relate to my current situation. This post from October of 2012 reflects how gas prices were at the time. Currently they are about $2.55 a gallon on average.
I am looking forward to a visit from a friend, and have been for months. It is that or I take a trip to visit. I'm sure about how either of these things will work out but I'm in the process of attempting to find out. There is a lot to do in order to prepare, but I am at a lost when it comes to starting.
My income has become less consistent in the last few months. It is to the point where I am skipping things just to make ends meet. I am actively searching for work, any work to keep my head above water. The results so far are almost non-existent.
Things to Take Care OF:
Increase my income
Stock up on food so that we have enough to cook specific meals while they are here.
Save enough for a couple nights in a hotel room in the event that I go up there.
Make a schedule and get more organized for productivity.
How am I increasing my income?
I have put in a couple of applications at writing sites, and am using sites that I used years ago. The problem when you do not use a skill it is possible to lose it, or lose confidence in your ability. I am working to get my skills back to where they once were so I can once again make a living from home and actually cover expenses. I am currently working every angle possible including this website. Schedule and Organization
My daily schedule looks like hours full of cleaning, working and looking for work. I am slowly but surely meeting my goals. My day is broken down by my goals. This makes it easier for me to focus on what is going on around me.
