Last month I wrote an article titled “Another day, need another dollar”.
I am pretty sure a part of the reason I got so many responses was that I finally figured out I got some crazy spam emails and they were referring to god only knows what and I took that to be a response to my post.
Some actually were and others were referring to a spam post somewhere out there in cyber space. Really I have no idea how it got there. I didn’t write about clothes, sex or the other random messages I got!
Then I read and reread and read again that post.
I don’t really get it why it seems to genuinely interest people.
I mean I think it’s ok but seriously today, it is for me, another day, needing a lotta dollars!
I was reflecting back on my thoughts and how some of them I realized that I have found my way through to get on track, how my trains get derailed and how I still have now a list of over 50 “topics”, read “those thoughts running round inside of my mind” yet I end up writing about what just flows forth from my fingertips!
At least I can say with complete honesty this was a topic on my list so go me!
I have been writing a few articles for others, whooowhooo, as well as done some sitter work for a dear older lady.
Sadly I talked myself out of that job as she needed 24/7 care and I was concerned that with the group we had helping out, they would run out of steam, not have back up and a few other things. I wrote a short novel on “things to do and take care of for Ms. D”. I went from hired help to consultant quick but it was best for the patient!
It really is another day and I really do need another dollar(s)!
One of my close friends recently taught my boy to hold out his hand, look the person straight in the eye and say, “Tuition, tuition, tuition!” with enthusiasm and then he is handed money!
Every time he asks the boy, “What is the phrase that pays?!” and he diligently answers with joy in his heart and a gleam in his eyes, “Tuition, tuition, tuition!”
Thus far he has made about $10 off this little scheme.
He is tickled pink.
I then explained to the boy how this really works.
That if you save it up and put it in your little banks, a silver horse and a dog in his house, you can afford to buy…… A Transformer!
His little eyes lit up with total delight when I told him that if he keeps putting money into the banks in your room, soon he will have enough to go to the store and buy a transformer toy that he chooses!
If he keeps saving money that he can buy himself special toys!
He is now excited to learn with the play money till I got him at the dollar gentral!
I spent a dollar to teach him a lesson in how to count money while also teaching him how to save up for something he wants.
Not such bad lessons!
As for me?
Each day I move closer and closer to earning those dollars!
I got a few articles written, and I jumped across a huge hurdle I have been standing behind and took the first big step of building up some writing credits! I am also doing some home management projects because I love a challenge!
Who do you think is going to have to pick up the slack when the boy wants the bigger Transformer toy?
I never give up!
My motto is keep hope alive!
You can bet your sweet patootie I am doing just that!
Have a fabulous Thursday My Graceless Friends!
