Well, it’s 10pm and I’m in my pajamas–from last night! I basically spent the whole day organizing data on my computer, and rearranging my room/office. Things have been busy since opening my massage business, hence no posting lately. I’ve had 11 satisfied customers so far (out of 11!), and hopefully it will keep growing. I’m enjoying my day job as well – I get to help someone else organize data so that makes me happy.
I had my estate sale last weekend in Bakersfield, and it went perfectly, as planned. I made around $3,000.00 for all my worldly possessions, which is the amount that I’ve calculated to be just over my bare montly minimum for keeping my current lifestyle. In other words, the sale bought me one more month of comfort. I was proud of my advertising skills (signs posted at intersections):
I’ve had a few things on my mind to post about, just haven’t made the time. For one, I’ve been thinking about what “family” means. My new job is in a neighborhood of San Francisco known for lesbian couples pushing their babies down the sidewalk in a stroller together. They are not quite that ubiquitous, but I may have spotted one the other day. Also, when I was back for my estate sale, I learned that my former neighbor was hosting a 10-year-old child from Korea. Apparently, her family is so concerned about her education that they paid an American family to take their child for a year so she could learn our culture. My neighbor questioned their judgement, saying that he could never give up one of his kids for a year – that’s a year you would never get back with them. But what is best for the child? It’s an interesting question, but one that I don’t have the energy to address tonight.
