I've been thinking...

It's too cold outside to do much doing. 

So I've been thinking.  And by thinking, I mean lying on the couch and watching Dog the Bounty Hunter and those shows about guys buying storage lockers.  I've also been working on finishing off the Christmas chocolate...

I lost my job last month.  Well I still have the job, it's just that there isn't any work.  Which kind of negates the definition of the word "job" doesn't it?  I worked as a private contractor for a transcription company and was able to work from home and set my own schedule.  I'm not sure what happened to the work, but it dried up.  I wasn't heartbroken, but I do miss the money.  I have turned my cell phone off and will have the cable turned off next month.  Oh, Dog the Bounty Hunter what will I do without you?

So I've been thinking about what I want to do now.  For some reason bounty hunting and buying storage lockers comes to mind.  Or I could open a pawn shop, enter my children in weird beauty pagents, drive a truck on icy roads, catch really big fish, or open a cupcake store.  I guess I could get pregnant, no wait, I'm not even close to being 16. 

Yeah, it's probably good that the cable is being disconnected. 

I wonder what qualifications I need to be a cat...

Smiles from the farm,


  1. I had my cell phone shut off two years ago and I do not miss it at all. I also had cable shut off and very satisfied with the channels I get with my antenna. I use to watch many shows and I also have the $8.99 a month membership for netflix which you can watch instantly many movies, tv shows, documentaries, etc....We do not miss cable at all.
    Good Luck on what ever life adventure you decide on ;)

  2. Just had to add that my computer is hooked up to my 48 inch led hdtv sony tv to watch netflix etc. Can also watch in my craft room on my office puter we purchased for under 200 at

  3. Sorry to hear about that. It really sucks. Have you tried to find other fields? I know the work market is at a low, how about medical transcription? Classes? Learn something new? Hope all goes well.

  4. Sorry about the job....
    You know what I've been watching when boredom strikes me?
    "American Pickers". On the History Chanel. (except I watch it via Netflix.) It's about these two guys who travel around buying junk.
    Awesome job, if you ask me.... buying junk.

  5. Oh Lisa so sorry to hear about the latest development. Hoping you won't shut down your internet connection. We shut off our land line last year, so cell is all we have, but Henri would freak without his cable t.v. I'm thinking Etsy sure is a good place to sell vintage. I agree with the commenter above, junking sure sounds good to me. ~Lili

  6. Lisa, you have so much talent that I am sure you will be alright. I remember the pin cushions and the great stuff you were selling on the side of the road......not the weather for it right now, but it's a possibility.....maybe??!! Char

  7. Hang in there. I agree - you are SO talented! Something will come along and the Peanuts will be pouring in again!
