A night's sleep helps out a lot. The dreams were angsty but I think they resolved a bunch of issues. So, am feeling less losery.

In cheery news my pal in Berlin sent me chocolate and two of them are utterly delicious summer flavors of Ritter Sport: pink grapefruit and blackberry. Yum! There are two other Ritter Sports and they're nut filled and also look delicious. It's fun getting German chocolate from someone who knows me so well. I've already written her thank you card and will send it off later on today.

Today it's more job hunting while also burning the prayer candles hoping I get a kickass job. I know, I'm superstitious...and not very religious. But it worked several times before. Please let it work this time.

In a couple of weeks my mom and I are off to see the White Sox on a giveaway day. Hopefully we can get the retro jerseys! We're going to leave ultra early.

It sucks not having a car because it would make finding a job easier, I'd have more options. And I could visit my parents more easily. But I don't miss the taxes nor the parking tickets.

If I start feeling low today, which is most likely, I better be more proactive and do something like knit or color. Or...relearn some ukulele chords. I've let that go lax for so long that I might as well take the beginner course again. Happily, though, I have all the handouts and a beginner book to go to instead of shelling out quite a few bucks for a class.

My neighbor is moving to the South and gave me a bunch of framed prints and I have no idea where to hang them. I might do as some suggested and hang them close to the floor. I also have three prints that need framing so when I get a job those will go up high on the walls. Two of the prints are illustrations by Chad Sell. They're of contestants from RuPaul's Drag Race and they're gorgeous.

Howdy! I'm running out of savings and though I'm going on interviews (I've got a big one on Monday) I'm still unsure how I'm going to get by next month. If you can spare a little money it will be greatly appreciated. And if you PM me via Dreamwidth/LJ with your address I'll send you a hand drawn thank you card.

Here's the link to my GoFundMe account: Donate here.

In other news I'm jogging further. Yay! It'll be a while, though, before I can do a 5k run. My goal is to be able to do that by October. Maybe if I sign up for a race that will give me the oomph to be ready by then? (bites fingers)

Back in May I turned 50 and got an AARP membership. Dudes and dudettes, I'm old! I can get discounts with my AARP card! I actually read the magazines they produce! Send help stat!

For the 4th of July I went on a family reunion to a rural part of PA where cellphone service was spotty at best. It actually was nice not to be tethered to technology. We hung out at my cousin's, saw fireworks up close in a farm field, had an anniversary lunch for my Aunt and Uncle, and talked a lot! There even was a community ham dinner that benefited the volunteer fire department. It was family style and we ate at long tables alongside strangers who were very nice. The pie? OMG! I had the strawberry rhubarb and it was homemade.

Then I was off to NJ to visit another cousin and my cousin-in-law, his wife. I got to go to NYC and eat at Junior's and follow it up with a Broadway show, Waitress. Which was good, btw. It's based on a movie of the same name and though I had seen that movie I had forgotten so much! The music was great and the actors did a fabulous job.

The next day I watched Wimbledon for a bit and then we went off to the zoo. I always feel bad about the animals in the zoo but didn't want to tell my companion that. We just couldn't think of what else to do. Oh! And we had excellent Indian buffet before the zoo.

On Friday I hung out a bit with my cousin and his wife's darling dog, a Papillon, and then headed home. The cousin and his wife were so kind to pay for me to visit them, I told the wife I will do some art for her as a thank you. I might do a drawing or painting of their dog, perky ears and all!

Now I've been studying up on grammar, searching for a job, and jogging...and reading the AARP Bulletin. Heh. Today I'm off to see my doctor and get my scrips filled and go pick them up. Exciting, I know!

PS...my cats were so well taken care of by Miss [personal profile] talitha78, they were happy and relaxed when I came home.

We had a family reunion in rural PA which was a blast. Nothing like seeing major fireworks for an hour parked out on the lawn of a farm, the fireworks seemingly going off over our heads.

After PA I headed to NJ and spent one day in NYC.

Proof!

We ate at Junior's and though I didn't have cheesecake with my meal I bought some to go.

And then we went and saw Waitress on Broadway. I had originally seen the movie so I was eager to see how it was adapted to a musical. I think they did a pretty damn good job!

And then we headed back to NJ. Next time I'm in NYC I promise to give everyone a heads up so we can get together.

Rowr!

Thought I'd share a picture of all the baby dragons together on my sideboard. I originally had them all over the place but decided to put them all together. The three-headed dragon is from Miss [personal profile] dine and it's a cutie! The red dragon in the back I got several years ago from someone in Russia who makes articulated dragons. I had to have a professional doll artist put the wings on it as it looked too daunting for me to do!
