Today I am posting on a personal level,
something I don't normally do....
Many of you who visit or follow know that
I am a Care Giver for a Sweet Lady with Alzheimers
I have been Taking care of her for many years...
I was always there, whenever Her Hubby could not be,
While He Worked, Traveled & His other commitments....
Hubby & Sweet Lady are also My Landlords
My apartment was part of My Care Giving
(even thou I live 39 miles away from them)
For awhile now, I have or at least should have been
aware that Hubby could & would at some point in Life, Retire....
I Should have been More Prepared for this,
Not only in Spirit, but in Monetary ways...
I feel like it Blindsided Me
Out of the Blue, No Notice, No Chance to Save Alittle....
One day Your In & The Next Your Out
I never was paid much in compensation
My Benefits included:
The Sweet Little Place I Live
Gas for My car to cover the travel
I will still be On Call, but it may only be once a week
or an occasional trip
I Will NOT be Paid at all, but for the time being
I can stay living in the Sweet Little Place
I call HOME
Finding another Job here in Michigan is Not an easy thing to accomplish here
(or anywhere in this economy)
I am also Not a Licensed Care Giver
I was Blessed to have come across the job I had
as Private Care
So, if any of You are wondering Why in the World
I am listing so many things on
Etsy & Ebay
I am Trying to Survive....
To Be Honest, I have 0 in the bank
and Very Little in the Pocket Book
I Ponder on My Future
Thanks for listening while I vent from the Heart
If anyone knows how to promote my etsy shop or my blog more,
please let me know....
I feel I need to get the word out
I just started listing items recently on etsy
even thou I opened my shop I think in 07
