My Life Has Shifted Again!

Oh Lordy, I have a full time job and have for 6 months.  I LOVE my job, but it does not leave time for much else.  Or I should say with my fibromyalgia I don’t have the energy and while my pain is SO much better than it was 2 years ago, it still limits me.

We have great health insurance, which is very important and some extra money to put into retirement.  I won my Social Security claim and will get a check for 2 years.  I of course was denied, then my new job was plopped into my lap (I was NOT looking for a job), I called my lawyer to say forget the Social Security application.  He said we should at least go ahead with a closed claim. 

I am convinced I would have been awarded full Social Security because the Voc Rehab person could not really find another job in my category…and I was awarded my claim in about 10 minutes.

I would like to buy a Temperpedic bed with my award.  That is my plan anyway.

Until then I continue to work hard, quilt when I can, and look foward to some gardening.

I cannot quilt AND garden because of time, so I must get six more baby quilts done before I start gardening!

My dear son-in-law is in Afghanistan and my 4 year old granddaughter and my daughter are living with us while he is gone. I pray constantly for him and am grateful for our blessings.

  1. So nice to hear from you over at my blog! It sounds like you are really busy right now. Glad that you found a job, and at least got something from social security–you deserve it. I know it’s hard to blog and work and do everything else, but I will look forward to your posts whenever you choose to put one up:) I’m not posting as much as I used to, but I do enjoy sharing a post every so often. I’ve been busy too–we did summer Shakespeare this year, and we’ve been busy with auditions and other work in the entertainment field–music sometimes, acting sometimes. We hope to do more as we are able. Because of the summer production we did, I didn’t have as much time as I normally do out in the garden, but I did put some vegetables in and kept things watered, so we’ve been enjoying them as they ripen. Lovely warm sunny weather here, nice change from the usual rain that autumn brings. Take care!
