It doesn’t matter anyway

Long training days at work. The good thing is that training ends on Friday. I don’t know whether that is really a good thing because that means I have to uh, work. No more 3-hour meetings. Just working. How boring and normal. I will try to keep it exciting. 😉

I got feedback on two of the 4 free tarot readings I did over the past week. One was a 3-star rating. Bummer!!! She didn’t say anything about the actual reading. She just said she wanted to know which cards I drew. Okay. I kind of get that now. From now on I will tell everyone what cards I pulled. I got a 5-star reading on the other! Yay. She said I was 100% right and she liked my advice. After that “bad” feedback, I was glad to receive 5 stars.

I’m scared to get feedback on the other readings. One I didn’t include the cards, so I feel like that one will be average or bad. I did that before I got feedback about people wanting to know which cards I picked. Oh well. They have to give feedback if they want to continue getting free readings. The other one I told her the cards, but she asked THREE questions which is against the rules, but whatever. I answered all her questions. I felt like it went well.

UPDATE: I just got another 5-star rating for a reading I did. Thank you so much! Now my average rating is a 4.3. Woohoo! I know I shouldn’t get caught up on ratings. But I haven’t done a lot of readings. I need some type of validation. I have only done a total of 15 readings so far. Most of the ones I’ve done are through email. I’ve done 3 on Zoom/Skype and one in person. So now I’m only waiting for feedback on one more reading.

I think my mentor wants me to read for her. I’m trying not to get too anxious about it. What I want to do is practice on Zoom by myself and do a fake reading. I know I say “umm” and “uhhh” A LOT. I’ve done it my whole life, and I don’t know how to stop. Anyway, if I’m not too busy this weekend, I think I’ll do a fake 30-minute video reading and watch the recording. That will be brutal!

I did a 1 minute 44 second YouTube intro video for my website. I don’t know whether it is any good. I hope I’m not mumbling. I should ask my mentor what she thinks, but I’m scared. I also did Instagram stories last night! I’m very new to that. I was so tired. I did 15 seconds from each of my blog posts.  That’s 12 blog posts! It took forever because I didn’t know what I was doing. I hope that wasn’t a waste of time. It was my mentor’s idea.

I was so tempted to go on another Getaway. Ah, that would be so nice. I even went to the website and saw that the dates I wanted are available. That would be financially irresponsible, so I’m not going. No internet. No TV. Reading in bed for two days. Why can’t I go? *whines* Adulting is so hard.

Sigh. I made an appointment 3 months ago to see my doctor on July 30th. Now she’s going on vacation or something, and my appointment has to be rescheduled.  They called me this past Friday to tell me. I have a problem when doctors don’t seem to care that we take days off from work to go to the doctor. She only does well visits AKA annual visits when I’m working, so I have to take time off to go to her office.

Anyway, I rescheduled it for September 17th. I have that day off. Hopefully, she won’t be off on that day too. UGH. On the off chance, that she has an emergency, I’m sorry for bitching about it.

Gotta go. Bye!

Is it just part of the process?

Countdown:

17 days until I’m off from work for a full week

I’ve been working 24/7. I finally have at least 10 minutes to catch my breath. It’s my fault. I need to be more structured when it comes to the tarot biz. However, I only have a mentor for 3 months so I’m trying to get in as much as I can while she’s around. I go from working my day job to working the tarot. I can’t wait to be off from work for a week, but that time will probably be 95% tarot and 5% doctor appointments. It would be nice just to have one day off of not doing any work. I’m going to try to do that. As of right now, I’m going with the Wednesday of that week.

Sigh. Sigh. Sigh.

We started working on the new system at work. So far, I am really slow at it. It took me 5+ years to really get used to the old system and now, they change it. I hope it doesn’t take me too long to get used to the new system. We started training in March. I have forgotten so much. I have to look up almost every single thing. That is why I’m so slow.

Enough about that work. Now let’s talk about tarot work. I joined a tarot community that assigns people free email readings to do. How awesome. There are drawbacks, of course. But the best thing is that I don’t have to ask people do they want a free reading. I was shocked I got picked. I thought they would never pick me, but I got a free reading request the first night I signed up! The question is pretty detailed. She wants a little of everything covered. Uh, I don’t usually do that in readings. I might talk it over with my mentor tomorrow. But how much can I tell her? I don’t want to cross any boundaries.

(UPDATE: I just got a request for another free reading. Ummmm, I haven’t even done the first one yet. I’m grateful for the opportunity. But I’m shaking at the same time. This one is 100% relationship based. Oh dear.)

UPDATE pt 2: I now have 4 readings to do. There goes working on my intro video.

Another good thing is the feedback. On Facebook, I didn’t always get feedback. Now I get feedback PLUS I get rated from 1 star to 5 stars. LOL. Oh, God. This could really suck! I’m doing the reading on Saturday. I’m anxious about it. Please give me at least 4 stars!

FUCK MY THERAPIST! Okay, this time we actually had a decent session. She even took notes!! But she didn’t know I don’t have any friends. How many times do I have to say it? This time she typed it into her notes, so I think she got it. Why fuck my therapist? Because she wants me to talk to my dad. NOT HAPPENING!!!1111!!!!!

Should I lie? Nah. Should I tell her I just didn’t want to do it? I will probably do something like that. After I told her he lives mostly in {insert country name}, she asked whether he spoke English. ROFL. Uh, yes. Very well.  He was born in Maryland and lived most of his life here. Anyway, my appointment is on Tuesday, right after work. I might see my dad on Sunday. But I’m not saying a thing besides “hi.”

Oh, and the main reason I don’t talk to my dad is social anxiety. Simple as that. I admire my dad. He is a Vietnam Vet. He is smart. I don’t agree with him when it comes to everything. For example, he doesn’t think the football players should kneel. FYI, not all veterans agree with him. Some think they fought for the right of the football players to have freedom of speech. What a novel concept! So there’s that. I think the whole thing is stupid. Stop playing the National Anthem at football games. Whatevs. I don’t watch football anymore because it kills people. Not because of some kneeling BS.

(Not that the football players are kneeling for BS. Just wanted to state I know they are kneeling for important stuff they believe in. I think the “controversy” is BS).

This week I…

Music of the week (my top 8 most listened to): Dave Matthews Band, James Bay, Janelle Monae, Florence + the Machine, Sugarland, Demi Lovato, Amy Winehouse, Hailee Steinfield

TV of the week:  Big Brother, The Handmaid’s Tale, The Bachelorette (judge away)

I watched The Bachelorette because they visited my hometown. It’s so sad that I’ve only been to one of the places they visited. It’s not like they went to touristy places. They just went to everyday places. I’ve wanted to go to one of the places they visited for the longest time. I just keep going to the same places. Anyway, I like Becca (the bachelorette), so I’m going to keep watching until the end of this season. I’ve never watched the show before, but I know the concept. I don’t watch it live, so I hope no one spoils the ending. I have to stay off social media… especially Twitter.

Oh and one of the guys called where I live “country”. Okay, Mr. Elitist or should I just call him ignorant? I’m sure tons of people living in the city were laughing at that. The country is at least an hour away from here, dude. Thanks for stopping by. I love the country, btw. I’m trying to move there. I want to own a house there. It’s just so far out. I don’t want to spend a ton on gas just to get places, but it’s probably worth it.

Movie of the week: I watched two comedy specials last week. I can’t believe I’m watching comedy like I used to back in the day. So weird. I watched Kamau Bell’s latest (soo good!) and Hannah Gadsby’s Nanette. I enjoyed both. Nanette was more serious and so necessary. If you want serious comedy, watch that. If you want to laugh at the ridiculousness, this country has become watch Kamau’s special. Can’t go wrong with either option. Should I watch David Chappelle next? I probably won’t because I haven’t heard great things about any of his recent specials.

Podcasts of the week: Fresh Air, Online Marketing Made Easy, The Biddy Tarot Podcast, The Mind Your Business Podcast, True Crime Garage, Unsolved Murders, Why is This Happening?

Books of the week: Now reading:

Plans for the weekend: Tarot, tarot, tarot. What else is there to do? I’m working OT on Saturday. I also have to do that free reading. I hope I do a good job. On Sunday, I’m going grocery shopping.

I also want to record another video for my tarot website. I’m not sure I’m going to get it done this weekend, but I want to try. This one I want to be more professional. I’m going to attempt to use iMovie for the first time ever! Ugh, this might take some time. There goes my weekend! I hope I can make it good. Oh, and I also started a biz Twitter account. I’m not sure how long I’m staying on there. I don’t like having two Twitter accounts. One for fake business shit and one for real stuff I care about. It doesn’t sit right with me. I feel like I’m fake on the biz Twitter because I probably won’t tweet anything bad about Trump or politics at all. I do follow NPR on that account though. LOL.

Anyway, I’m glad I made time to do this entry because I don’t want this blog to die just yet. Thanks for stopping by. Have a great weekend! 🙂

Have I ever made a sound?

My website is going okay. I haven’t been changing things daily anymore. D barely visited.  I didn’t expect her to go there at all. She’s self-centered and doesn’t give a shit about something that isn’t her thing.  Yes, I am judging her for only looking at my “about me” page. LOL. She’s the person I judge the most. Since I started ACIM and Gabby Bernstein’s course/book, I’ve been good at not wanting to judge people in general, but her…I have a hard time not judging her.

H didn’t visit at all. I think it is because she doesn’t get the Tarot which is fine. She’s a Christian, and she might think the tarot is wrong so I can’t be mad at that, right? Even though I know the tarot is not fortune telling, others don’t necessarily know that. She believes it’s not okay to have a Jehovah Witness Bible in your house!  (Sorry I don’t know the correct term for that particular Bible. I do have that Bible in my house).

That’s why I haven’t told my dad about my tarot biz. If he searched a ton on Facebook, he could probably find it. But I don’t think he even knows that I have a website. I just have a feeling he wouldn’t get it. Plus, he’s a Christian too. I know not all Christians are against the tarot. In fact, some tarot readers are Christian.

I started my biz YouTube channel!! I just uploaded a video for Facebook and YouTube. If you have my website address, you can find the link to the video there. I just wish I could add the video to Instagram stories. 😦 But I think it’s too long. It’s 34 seconds. Argh. I don’t want to do the new Insta thing they have, so that sucks. Boo!  I had decent hair (lol), perfect lighting and I’m not doing it again. With me, the first time is almost always best. I just get worse over time. Always go with the first try even if it’s not perfect. That’s my unsolicited advice. Btw, this is coming from a semi-perfectionist. I’m trying to be freer as in who gives a fuck? Upload the damn video.

P.S. I turned off the comments and likes for my intro video because it is just an intro. When I start doing career readings on YT, then I’ll leave the comments on because people like to engage, and sometimes they leave mean comments.

I don’t think I’m doing Twitter. I LOVE twitter for my news. It is probably my main source of news these days. But I don’t like some things about it. Hmmm. I might join later. I dunno. I might snag the name just to have it for the future. Doing Instagram kind of sucks with a crappy camera. But I already started. I have followers, and I’m not stopping. Now I have to engage with others. HOW SCARY IS THAT? At least, that is what my mentor told me. LOL. I’ll start tomorrow by either leaving comments or participate in a tarot challenge.

I just got off Zoom with my tarot mentor. We had a 90-minute meeting. It went well. She is trying to force me to get out of my cocoon. Of course, I need to do that.

This week I…

Music of the week (my top 8 most listened to): Janelle Monae, Lykke Li, Kelly Clarkson, Florence + the Machine, Linkin Park, Camilla Cabello, Justin Timberlake

TV of the week:  Big Brother, Wimbledon

Movie of the week: Not really a movie, but I started watching a comedy special – Nanette.  I used to love comedy when I was young and naive. Now I hate comedy that makes fun of people. I refuse to watch it. I don’t think it’s funny to make fun of people. Yes, I’m standing on my soapbox. Anyway, Nanette is nothing like that. I love it so far. I’ll blog more about it when I’m done. She’s gay, so I’ll probably have a lot to say. 😉 Sorry if that is wrong to say. Not. Haha.

Podcasts of the week: New Books in Gender Studies, But That’s Another Story, The Russillo Show, The Lowe Post, Unsolved Murders,

Books of the week: Now reading:

Leaving off all the tarot and astrology books unless I get something new because I’m constantly going back to them.

Plans for the weekend: Nothing much. YAY! I’m working 3 or 4 hours on Saturday. Then on Sunday, I will probably do two free tarot card readings. I have to go to the library on Sunday to return two books (one on tarot and one on astrology). They won’t let me renew them anymore. 😦 I’m also going to take my dog to the park on Sunday. We haven’t been since Monday. Long story.

So when I say I’m doing “nothing much” what I mean is that I’m working on tarot, tarot, tarot all weekend. So glad I recorded the video tonight even though it wasn’t perfect, so I don’t have to worry about that.

Have a great weekend! Thanks for reading. 🙂

 

The good ones always break

Someone just went off on all vegans on Insta! It was great. LOL. I’ve been getting tired of their self-righteous attitude. Not all vegans have that attitude. Obvs. I’m talking about the ones that go on and on about it and have the holier than thou attitude. No one wants to hear from their privileged ass about being vegan. Fucking awesome! I admit I loved it a little too much. I want to thank the person for finally saying what I’ve been thinking for years.

YAY for LeBron being a Laker. I’ve been a Laker fan since I was eight years old. I’ve been ambivalent towards LeBron since he came into the league. Now I might kind of love him. 🙂

BUDGET TIME!

I started off June so well. I did do well with my groceries. But I ordered twice needlessly from Amazon (total of $70.00). I hired a mentor. I enrolled in Gabby Bernstein’s Spirit Junkie Masterclass (!!). So it was a fail for the second half of June.  I’m going to try to do better in July. I really need to.

Here are some of my July budget categories:

  • charity – 10.00
  • emergency fund – 25.00
  • electricity – 95.00
  • trash – 30.00
  • groceries – 120.00
  • clothing – 25.00
  • gas – 30.00
  • doctor bills – 50.00
  • toiletries – 23.00
  • subscriptions – 46.00
  • pet stuff – 44.00

I’m leaving my debts off again because no one should have to see that. It’s quite scary. However, I did write down every single debt for myself.

Therapy isn’t going well. She doesn’t give a shit. So I may quit. I’m giving her two or three more chances to see if she cares. I think I have 2 more free visits left. She thinks I’m married?? Can’t she remember anything from the last session? Why isn’t she trying? Would this happen in 3D therapy AKA real therapy? Sigh. I’m almost over her. Some of it is probably on me. I hate that she changed from having Sunday hours. After work, I don’t want to talk. I’m tired. *whine*

I hate to say I’m so busy, but dammit, I’m so fucking busy right now. That’s a good thing in a way, but it is also keeping me from reading leisurely, finishing my self-study astrology course*, and just relaxing.

*The astrology course is kind of for my business, but I LOVE astrology so I would do it even if it weren’t for that. I’m obsessed. Astrology is so fun. I’m a geek that way. It’s been one of my interest for years. This course is like a graduate level course. Here is a link to Benebel’s astrology course.  It is very deep, and I may have to delay getting further into it until my mentorship is over.

It was so fun interpreting Trump’s and Obama’s birth charts. They were spot on! OMG. Amazing. Yes, I’m a nerd. I must blog more about their charts when I’m back into astrology again. I haven’t even looked at Hillary’s yet. Ooh. I bet that would be interesting. 🙂

Instagram business update: I have two pictures on my biz Instagram page! It wasn’t that hard to figure out what to write, but now I need to do more random shit. For example, I happen to be reading a bunch of Tarot books right now. I should take a pic of those books and post it. I need to post stuff that has nothing to do with my website.

I’m so tired all the time. That is not helping me get work done. I woke up 1 hour after my alarm went off!!! I never do that. I got up at 5:47 AM and still made it to work on time. Yay, for working from home. (Start time for me is 6 AM). But I didn’t get to meditate, pray, do ACIM, or eat breakfast. At least I made it on time.

Gotta go.

I really want some comfort

Yay for Ben Jealous winning the Maryland primary for governor! And good for Oscario-Cortez for winning her primary. I hope they win in November. The good news ends there. 😉 I have to blog about Kennedy retiring. I already tweeted what I thought. Okay, maybe it’s not the end of the world. Maybe. I’m mostly concerned about the death penalty and gay rights.  I know most people are concerned with Roe v. Wade. Of course, other things will come up. Oh well. The people voted OR they didn’t vote, and they get what they deserve. Ouch, that’s harsh!

Yeah, most people voted for Hillary, but whatevs. Who cares about the popular vote? Who cares about voting at all? We should make it impossible for people to vote. Wait, are people already trying to do that? Gotta love America. Don’t forget there was no difference between Trump and Hillary.

/end political rant

Ugh. I shouldn’t be bitching about my “friend”. She’s a Facebook “friend”. We don’t know each other AT ALL. Anyway, she is addicted to online tarot readings.  Um, that would be great if she were paying people, but she is getting a bunch of free readings to help with a decision. I told her I would do one for her tomorrow because today has been really busy. I had a therapy appointment and an appointment with my tarot mentor. Plus, I have this thing called work.

Yeah, I feel kind of used (KIND OF??!) because she isn’t just getting free readings from me. She is getting them from a couple of other people too. I would recommend she learn Tarot for herself because it can be so helpful, but her life is hectic right now. It is NOT the time to recommend that. Not that I don’t still get readings from others. I always think someone may be more intuitive than me.

WOW. I just got off Zoom (just like Skype) with my tarot mentor. She is fucking fantastic! She is my role model. Can I be her? The conversation didn’t flow 100% perfectly because I’m me. But she was wonderful. That has to be the best money I have ever spent in my life. Her services are not cheap.

She’s going to email me the 90-minute video recording tomorrow. I can’t wait. If I had taken notes, it would have been pages and pages. I hope she wasn’t offended that I wasn’t taking a ton of notes. I knew she was going to send the recording to me and I am planning on taking notes on everything then.

We got through a lot for our first meeting. Thankfully I wrote down things I wanted to discuss ahead of time. One thing that scares me is that she says I can email her anytime during the 12 weeks. Um, I hate being a bother. I know I’m paying her, but I don’t like emailing people. I have to get over that if I want this to work better.

The only “bad” thing she mentioned is that I should start posting on my business Instagram. UGH. Double UGH. The thing is that I know next to nothing about advertising on Instagram. All I have on my business Instagram is a link to my biz site. LOL. I hope this doesn’t take all weekend. I had my weekend planned out…I guess things have changed. This is probably a good thing. I don’t know why I’m complaining. I just don’t have a lot of time to play around with Insta. I’m not that familiar with it. I just kind of know how to post pics. I’ll figure it out.

But YAY for the mentor meeting going great!!! I almost said her name by mistake. Eventually, her name will be on my biz website. She will be listed as my mentor when we are done. Oh, she also says I write so well. I can laugh, but you can’t. 😉 Wait until she sees my blog on my tarot website. That isn’t written so well. I’m struggling over there.

I’ll have more to say about therapy later. It’s not going great. :/

This week I…

Music of the week (my top 8 most listened to): Demi Lovato, Alanis Morissette, Halsey, Janelle Monae, Florence + The Machine, Christina Aguilera, Kacey Musgraves, The Bird and the Bee

TV of the week:  This is Us, Big Brother

What a tear jerker the second season of This is Us is. I find myself crying whenever someone faces racism on the show…especailly the young kids. Maybe I have some issues there. Big Brother is okay so far. Loved the first show, wasn’t crazy about the second night. I like Sam. Unfortunately, the rest of the house doesn’t love her so she might not last. 😦

Movie of the week: none.

Podcasts of the week: Missing  & Murdered: Finding Cleo, So You Wanna Be a Witch, The Biddy Tarot Podcast, The Lowe Post, Why is This Happening?

Books of the week: I finished reading What the Truth Sounds Like: Robert. F Kennedy, James Baldwin, and Our Unfinished Conversation About Race in America by Michael Eric Dyson. Good book. Started off great with the history lesson. But I thought he talked about Cornel West too much. Maybe that’s my bias because I don’t care about the Dyson/West beef. Let it go.

Now reading (too many books to mention, but I will list a few) –

Plans for the weekend: Working, working, and other shit I don’t really want to do. LOL. On Saturday, I’m working 5 hours of OT, paying bills, cooking for the week, doing my July budget, and I will probably work on learning the tarot through notecards. Oh, I already forgot that I have to do that reading for my Facebook “friend.”  It’ll take less than an hour because she has already taken up a lot of my time. I don’t usually call people vampires (okay, I NEVER do), but she’s draining me. I hope she resolves whatever is going on, so I don’t have to deal with her constantly asking for free readings.

On Sunday, I’m taking my dog to the park first thing in the morning; then I’m taking my dad grocery shopping. I might offer to do 1 or 2 free readings. I feel like the weekends are the only time I have to practice. When I’m off the week of July 30th, I may do a lot of free readings, or I may redo my website. Who knows where things will be then?

Those are my exciting weekend plans. It’s going to be so hot this weekend. I have this small patch of lawn I haven’t mowed yet. It would only take 20 minutes or less, but it’s too damn hot. It doesn’t look like it will cool off. I’m probably going to mow it Monday during my lunch break.

Have a great weekend. Thanks so much for reading! Stay cool. 🙂

Sometimes I don’t wanna fight

What a day it was yesterday! I did FOUR free tarot readings. That might not seem like a lot, but I had to meditate and pray on each person. Plus I had to clear the cards between each reading. Then I have to type it up and for two readings I took pics of the cards. That took hours. I’m kind of shaking right now because one of the readings I did was spot on! I can’t share the details because I want to keep all readings private. All I can say is that I was scared to deliver her bad news, but I was right!

Who wants to tell someone something isn’t going to work out? I don’t. I don’t mind positive readings or neutral readings, but bad news??? Ugh. However, I did learn something. Even if the cards say something bad, SAY IT. It still hurts my heart to deliver that info. But I think it is my responsibility to say the truth. Otherwise, what’s the point of being a tarot practitioner? I have to tell what I think is the truth.

So I think I’m batting 50%. I have no idea. I didn’t get feedback from everyone. Some people just want to be positive and won’t say, “You are dead wrong”! LOL. I’m like that. I will tell the person what was right and what may be wrong, but I won’t be overly negative. If someone asks for a positive review, I will give it to them.

So I dunno. I need to get to 90% right. When I read for myself, I’m usually spot on. I think I just need more practice, but with working a day job with overtime on most days…who has time to practice? I was off on Monday, and that’s the only reason I volunteered to do the 4 readings. I kind of got an idea of what it would be like to do tarot readings full-time. I didn’t hate it even though it kind of sounds like I did. 😉 If I were doing it full-time, I would have my days structured better, and I would be 100% focused on tarot, and I would be fine with doing many readings in one day because that would be my job. This was FREE!!!

I’m so relieved yesterday is over. First I did one reading right after breakfast, then I took my dog to the park which was nice, then I mowed the front yard, and then I did the rest of the readings. I finished all the readings by 8 PM. I started my day at 6 AM. One person asked me a follow-up question; I have to do another reading for her tonight. Well, I don’t have to, but I will.

UPDATE: I received my first testimonial for my website!! Well, I have one on there now, but it is from a family member I did a reading for. That doesn’t really count. 😉 YAY. In case anyone is wondering, the testimonials are on the homepage. The first one is by a stranger I did a reading for yesterday and the second one is by the family member.

Oh and I also received sort of negative feedback. It was like “Thanks, so I guess I’ll do X”. I didn’t say anything about X at all. She definitely didn’t resonate with what I said. Oh well. I can’t please everyone. Her reading took forever because I was trying to get an understanding of her. Grr!

I’m so glad those 4 people gave me practice. THANK YOU.

I’ve gotta go. I’m erasing all the links to my tarot website later today. Bye!

Dreamers searching for the truth

And I thought Obama was hard on immigration. Actually, he was. Too hard for me. I was always on him about that. He always talked about empathy, and I believe he has empathy (which is rare for a politician), but he didn’t have much empathy for immigrants. The only reason I believe Trump went tougher on immigration is because he doesn’t want to continue anything Obama did so he HAD to go tougher and separate children from their parents.

Obama kept parents and kids together in so-called detention centers. He deported a ton of people.  More than George W. Bush. I used to know the exact number. I could just search for it. But you get my point. I wonder why Obama hasn’t spoken out much about Trump’s immigration policies? Hmmmm. I know why. To give him a little credit, he did start DACA.

I had to redo my tarot website (temporarily linked above and below). ::cries:: Okay, it wasn’t that bad. It took me less than 2 hours. I only redid it because I hated how it showed up on my phone. Who looks at websites on their phone? Apparently, a lot of people. I rarely do that. I still don’t love the services page on my phone, but everything else is okay.

If anyone has read my blog on my tarot website…um, I hate it too. ROFL. I’m just beginning! They will get better over time. I had fun doing Cancer’s reading. However, that’s not the point. The point is that my readings don’t flow well. Maybe my mentor can help me with that? I hope so!

Overall, I don’t like the business look of the site. It is supposed to be a spiritual site yet, it looks more like a website for a lawyer or something corporate. It will do for now. I think it is decent for a beginner. I’ve done a few websites before, but none for a business.

UPDATE: I changed the main color on my website to my favorite color: purple! I like it so much better. It is less business-like.

UPDATE part 2: I finally have the store set up on my website! Woohoo!

Therapist: How did you meet your husband?

Bwahahahahahahahahaha!!

Okay, I didn’t laugh at her. I just said, “I’m not married. I never have been”. Ugh. How could she think I was married? Would a therapist I saw in 3D (versus video) know that? We’ve had 3 sessions together. I don’t like meeting with her during the week. I’m tired from working all day, and the last thing I want to do is talk. I enjoyed the Sunday sessions much better.

She also asked me if I wanted to meet someone after I told her I wasn’t married. I said, “no.” Lol. I should have said, “Hell, no.” Please! Too funny.

I didn’t mention that on my Getaway weekend, I went to Shenandoah National Park! So cool. But it was so terrifying driving on those roads up the mountain. I was so scared. I’ve been driving for a long time. I drive on unfamiliar roads all the time. I have never experienced anything like this. I would like to say I’m going back because we (my dog and I) only spent an hour there, but I’m too scared to drive on those roads again.

We did a trail at Shenandoah described as “easy”. I showed up with my dog and these other hikers, mostly with non-American accents, were getting ready to hike the trail. They had on hiking boots and lots of gear. And here I am with tennis shoes with holes in them and a big ass camera. LOL. We walked the trail until I saw a snake. I waited for 2 minutes for the snake to move over to the side. Uh, it kept going up the trail! I’m 99% sure the snake wasn’t poisonous, but I didn’t know how my dog would react, so we headed back down.

In the end, I was glad the snake stopped us because it took forever to get back. I hadn’t realized how far we had gone because I was walking so fast to try to get out of the way of the real hikers. Anyhow, I hadn’t planned to go to Shenandoah, so that was nice.

Plans for the weekend: Busy weekend. I’m working 5 hours on Saturday. On Sunday, I’m going grocery shopping. I will probably work many hours on my tarot website and on an astrology course I started. I also need to find time to mow the lawn. Blah. I want to go back to my Getaway. Reading in bed for two days was so nice. The good old days.

I’m off on Monday. I will probably offer to do free tarot readings on Facebook on Sunday and then I can do them on Monday morning. Scary, but I have to do it. I need the practice.

Thanks for reading. Have a wonderful weekend! 🙂
