My Goals with this Blog...

Are to document my experiences with various income streams and programs in my quest to becoming a full time freelancer working from home. I plan to list my current 'eggs' and to post the things that have and haven't worked for me.

Welp, the big day nears. Day before Xmas jitters? Nah, the only jitters I have are the gusts of cool air from the outside. It's rather frosty and sitting in a blanket doesn't seem to help. But what's this weird article blast I get right at my arms? It's annoying. And since a. I need to uncover them to type, and b. I don't own one of the ridiculous snuggies, I deal with the cold.

I remember as a kid, my Ma rented a place with a built in fireplace. This blomus fireplace was so pretty. It was stainless steel, and could take lots of wear and tear even from my little kid butt bumping into it. I'd marvel at the roaring fires she'd light and gaze into the flame with childlike wonder. I'd remember when it was just her and me, staying into this place that just seemed so small for just the two of us and we'd sit and watch the fire. I had my Garfield coloring book open, she'd watch me color. I felt peaceful then.

I remember another time, when it was Christmas eve. Ma had in hindsight gone all out to lavish me with gifts. I knew it had to be hard back then. She was so excited that she'd (after me pestering her to open just one more) let me open present after present. By the time Christmas actually hit I'd opened them all already. The fire flickered and me and Ma were sitting around a pile of paper and toys.
I felt happiness then. Not cause of the toys, but because my Ma was there. Just me and her.

Hah...I love you Ma. In all you've done for me.
