Well, I smell much better this morning.

Now I’m just wondering if one of the cats shit under my bed.
I think I maybe smell like unwashed octogenarian...
Fellas. Ladies? Bueller? ANYONE? Oh, thank Maude, I’m married.

I think it might be myself I’m smelling. Gross.
Every step of the way
I’m just blown away by how every step in this process has played out the exact same way – with me worried about my lack of knowledge and experience with the specifics, thinking that the person I’m about to sit down with is going to see right through my smoke and mirrors to the heart of my pathetic little self who thinks she wants to open a restaurant. Every time I walk away from the...
So that went exceptionally well.
We’ve got our next tasks - completing personal financial forms and getting copies of last 3 years of taxes, plus putting together a list of potential other donors/investors to maybe drum up another $5-10K cash, though that’s really a just-in-case scenario. The loan officer said our biz plan looks great, with very realistic numbers with break even projected at just a little past the one...
In an hour
I should have a much more clear idea of what exactly we need to make this thing fly. Yes, I still have a headache, and I’ve been hydrating like crazy.

This is going to give me some giggle-snort mileage today, for sure.
Fuck you, tumblr. I just spent an hour writing a post about SNAP benefits and how they are part of my world right now, and you ate it. You logged me out just as I was about to hit post on the most coherent thing I’ve written in months. Asshole. I don’t have time to rewrite it - I barely had time to do it the first time.
2 Snaps Up
rosa—sparks: My family is on food stamps, or SNAP, as it is now called. Supplemental Nutritional Assistance Program. When I was laid off from my previous job, it took me almost 9 months to find a new one and our financial situation could not withstand me remaining on unemployment. I took my current job because they offered it to me, but also because it was exciting, I was the head of my...
indefensible: To apologise less. To develop strategies for dealing with my forgetfulness. To remove myself from other people’s problems when I can’t help them. To be more considerate. To not foist my problems on other people. To not take everything to heart. This is a list of things I need. You’re welcome. Hope Ross doesn’t mind if I borrow this list, because each and every item on...
GOP Unveils Plan to Gut Food Stamp Program →
rosa—sparks: Politico reports that the changes mean “an average family of four would face an 11 percent cut in monthly benefits after Sept. 1 and, even more important, tighter enforcement of rules would require that households exhaust most of their liquid assets before qualifying for help.“ The Associated Press adds that elegibility changes would knock 3 million people off the program...

Thursday Theme: Making Progress
Inch by inch, right? Task by task. I’m making tremendous progress with my soon-to-be business partner every single day. We’re watching the to-do list grow, but also watching the items receive a cross-out, one at a time. At least one item a day, sometimes a dozen or more. That’s the key – doing something on that list every single day, no matter what I feel like, no matter how...
froggeek: So, earlier today I saw this post floating around. Something that was reblogged into my stream, something written by some person that I don’t know and don’t follow. A post purporting to be about true love, and what it actually was, and about how you couldn’t really ever earn it. About how it was just something that just somehow happened. Pardon my French, but that’s an utter crock....
