Mini-Break

My family was away this past weekend. Dad is still getting treatment at the outpatient facility and Mom took a business trip out of state to consider a possible relocation.

It reminded me of the old days before I was homeless. I used to have my own space, a working vehicle, a job that paid all of my bills, and freedom…

So what did I do with my new found quiet time? Slept a bit, organized some papers, reassessed my life, and prayed.

Lately I’ve been down about my career. It’s been a dry year for me and seems like it’s taking forever just for me to pull together my down payment for SAG. Even though I’m working three jobs, the money is sparse; which makes me worry if I can even get to Dublin at this point. Having to focus on my family’s care has also added to the stress, which makes this break all the more beautiful.

My Mom will be home late tonight. My Dad, a few days later. I will miss the peace a quiet for now, but I know I will get back to it soon.

All Of My Friends Are In France Right Now! 🇫🇷

Ok, maybe not “all” of them, but several and I’m a little bitter about it. Mostly at myself since I could never get it together financially to take regular trips around the world.

I’m hoping that changes once I move to Dublin. I’ll be a European resident for 4 years, and fully plan on taking advantage of it. My goals are, first, tour all of the British Isles. Then, go to France to visit Paris, Le Mont Saint-Michel, Bordeaux, and Nice. Followed by Italy (I plan to buy a few tarot decks in Milan) and the rest of Europe.

Good goals right?
