Today the Journal wheel suggests LISTS… How appropriate now that I’m trying to workout the specifics of a product to produce! Cool. Amazing how things fall into place!!! I even realized yesterday how much this whole previously considered “fiasco” of ‘losing my job and ending up on (at some point) on unemployment where no one even sniffs at hiring me’ is really a preparatory respite, a second chance, “Do-Over,” if you will. Here is my chance to work my Ass off to get something published even if it’s small and not very significant. It’s also the chance to make something I’ve often thought would be a great idea and try to get it marketed! Yeah! I’m working alright, and since the world doesn’t want me or my stupid previous employer, I’ll work for ME! Hallelujah! Lists….
Things to do for my new “Boo Baby”
1. Get some mock up supplies
2. Check fabric, crafts, hardware stores
3. Research modeling clays/paints
4. Research possible marketing venues
5. Work on daily ritual cards
6. Brainstorm more specifics about the product
7. Check out website designing information and prices
8. Start a journal of precipitating idea and the steps through production
9. Meditate on making this a million dollar product
10. Research how to get a business plan going
11. Find a business mentor or create one!
12. Write out what you want most of all for or from this product, the top 5 things and post it throughout home!
13. See yourself as if you’ve gotten those top 5 things!

While I sat here in this “no longer on L&I, applying for unemployment, no longer disabled” stupor, I thought to myself: “There’s got to be some way for me to take advantage of my NEWFOUND “healed” status and this excessive time to find work for someone they won’t hire. Of course writing is the first thought, because even though no one seems to want this from me, it’s one thing I can do and do quite well I’m willing to admit these days. So I invested in a book about home based businesses and got this incredible idea today that I’m going to pursue!
I feel energized in a new way! I feel hopeful! For every job that I don’t get means more time pursuing my new venture!

Well, I’ve been working hard on getting in meals 2-3 hours a day. It’s not easy for someone who only really likes to get in maybe one to 2 meals a day. Period’s been extremely heavy lately but then I’ve been drinking a pot of tea a day and the extra liquid on top of water is rehydrating my constantly dehydrated body.
I feel full all day with all these liquids and I feel better about eating small itty-bitty meals.
Monday I start back with the workout trainer. I don’t know if I’ve gained weight or not. I hope not. I’m going to try to fast a couple days this weekend. Maybe Saturday and Sunday, or maybe all weekend or maybe just Sunday and Friday. I can try cutting up a granny smith apple in twelve pieces and eat one slice every 2 hours or so. I can eat 2 almonds each hour too and kick in a protein shake.
I had protein shakes today they were good. I added a little chai tea to the vanilla and a little white chocolate instant coffee to the chocolate. They aren’t sweet and gloppy like slim fast or Metrx. These are more like flavored coffee milk or something easy like that.
The period pretty much has me in low energy right now, but tomorrow we’ll see. I have some errands to run and bills to pay.
