So, yes, I have been MIA for awhile, a lot has been going on, here on the homefront, which is making it very difficult to get anything done! My computer has been down also, which is more frustrating for me, because I couldn't get any of the info I needed, for some very important business transactions!! I thought I had the problem solved, and was wable to be on the computer 1 day, and then bam!! my computer was crap again!! Just got it back a few hours agao, so hopefully, things will be alright now.
My part-time job, is starting to feel the effects of the economy, we all wondered when it would happen for us in the healthcare field, and it happened last Friday, at a mandatory meeting, we are losing 4% of our pay, starting in a few weeks, so now, I have to find a part-time job, to help my part-time job, to help my part-time candle business, sounds very confusing doesn't it?? It very difficult to say!! 4% doesn't sound like a lot, but it is, I will be losing a dollar and some change, but each week, it all adds up, and when the paychack arrives, it will be a big wake-up call to all of us!! With medicaid and medicare not going to pay for certain services, like oxygen, transportation, occupational therapy, physical therapy, and a few more things, the nursing homes will have to start paying for the services! Which really sucks!
I guess, I should I should be really thankful that I have a job, because sooooo many don't right now, and I am very thankful believe me!! Work for hubby has been super slow this summer, normally he is brings home some very nice checks, and this summer, they have been steady checks, just not the ones he or I like!! Between candle supplies, and the Harley Davidson stores, they are probably wondering where we are at!! lol
Well, I have to finish some things before bed, I have to work in the morning, and it will be a long one tomarrow, I have more orders to get ready, and have to work on my samples for OOTB for September, and do a candle basket for a charity event for next weekend. So, I will talk to you all in a few days, if not sooner, as long as the computer cooperates!!
