I've reconnected with a friend at one of the hardest points in our lives, and he means a lot to me.

I've made a ton of art the past year, and I am hoping to finish my novel this year so I can table at a con at the end of this year or next.

My friends work at Disneyland so I *might* be able to go to Galaxy's Edge, provided my $ is okay!

I had another job interview, and it didn't go badly! :)

I have a job!  :D :D

Now all I need to do is wait for my other background check to go through and they'll give me a start date! :)

 Had my taxes prepared and I'm getting refunds from state and federal. Also my panel at an upcoming con has been approved and tentatively scheduled.

The needed model rocket airframe tubing restocked at eRockets and should be shipped soon. I'll be able to complete those 3D printed parts sets into airworthy replicas.

I'm back! Went to get on my computer last Monday to find the bottom half my keyboard doesn't work. Leaving me with just my mouse and a few keys to get around with. Nearest new apple keyboard is 40 miles to the east of me. Not like I can drive there and get one at this time. Last night I dismantled the broken keyboard to see if I could get any of the mercury switches to work. Finally got the left side of the space bar working. Was able to type in 'est '. In the suggestion drop down list Best Buy came up. Clicked on it and was able to get their phone number. Planned to call them to see if it's possible to order a new keyboard over the phone. Woke up this morning and thought, "I still have my old mac computer". And yes my old keyboard.  Guess my habit of being a pack rat paid off after all. Feels good to have a line to the rest of the world again!
It's been said that rats can gain access to your home by climbing up threw your toilet. I prefer to use the front door.

Finally got some small photoetch brass parts from another modeler in the mail several days ago that I desperately need to finish a model I am currently working on. And he didn't charge me for them either. Not even for shipping! :)

Went to a Walgreens pharmacy today to look for some office supplies and instead took a detour down the soap aisle. And what did I find? The store got in a small shipment of hand sanitizer.  Limit of 2 bottles per person. :o  So I quickly grabbed the last 32 oz. bottle they had plus a smaller 8 oz. bottle. Yay me!  :)

Received my stimulus money and my Vietnam-era rifle arrived this weekend.

My mom brought over a bunch of extra food pantry items she had that she didn't want. So she gave them to me. I checked them over and choose what I wanted and what I didn't. I'm stocked up on food for quite a long time.

 I'm told this is good news...

I now have a puppy and also should be in my  own home come June 15.
Lots to worry about now.

Puppy still doesn't really like me yet, but loves my mom... darn dog.

House wasn't what I really wanted but it is ok amd what I can afford.  I won't complain.  It's been 1 year since I've had either thing,  hope it turns out to be what I want and need.

Woo hoo! Are you renting or buying? Or don't wish to share?

The farmer called and asked if I was working yet. He's about to harvest hay and was wondering if I could drive for him again. It'll only be for a couple days, but I sure could use the money so I'm looking forward to it. :)
