Updates: I need a vacation and my hopes and dreams laid out for anyone who cares to read them

Things you may or may not know about me:

I really don't know if I'm coming or going of late.

I've lost 14 pound on keto not Atkins, though I think I may go back to Atkins, I just don't know yet.

I can't stand the sound of whistling.  It makes me want to throat punch someone.

I've decided to start back to making soaps and sewing and crafting my heart out because I'm tired of keeping all that creativity in me.   Now if I could just make a living at it things would be all kinds of rosy.

I would really love to open a coffee/gift shop full of antiques and shabby chic hand made items and musty dusty old books, but that takes money which is something I don't have.

I'd love to teach arts and crafts to middle schoolers who don't have anything to do in the afternoons or on weekends, again, the money thing. You know, there are all kinds of after school program for kids in pre-k through 6th grade, then wonder we have such a time with kids between the ages of 13 and 18. There's no YMCA and if they don't play a sport then they're kind of left up to their own devices.

I want chickens and goats and pigs and cattle for my farm, but then again there are multiple gazillions of coyotes here. Time to have a coyote hunt.

I have 3 experimental raised beds, none of them are doing very well EXCEPT the birdhouse gourds. I have them everywhere but  I can't eat those.

I'm all kinds of tired and restless.

My online job is playing out.  I dont' want to go back to work in the real world. I'm too old for the nonsense that goes on there. LOL! Bet you never thought you'd hear me say that, huh?

My oldest son graduated from tech college today.  My younger was accepted into the tech college but is on a 2 year waiting list. Seems to me it's time to build a larger campus or another campus, this isn't fair to kids who don't want to go to a traditional college but can't get in to get the skills needed to get a good job.  Sure, they could go on to the 2 year college but they end up in debt.  At least the tech school they can get in and get out without using up pell grants, scholarships, and taking out student loans.

I think I just need a warm tropical vacation.

Where's and Carnival Cruise Line when I need them?  Well, except I am pretty much unemployed, but hey, I can dream right?
