Several times yesterday -- at the reader's group meeting, the festival/tour meeting, chatting with marchenland, and in a talk with my mom -- I wound up talking about how I'm now looking for a full-time job, having decided that the self-employment thing just isn't cutting it.

And you know what? The more I talked about it, the better I felt about it. It's like this great weight has been lifted off my shoulders. Sure, I have to write out my quarterly tax check right now and there are some checks I need to deposit, but basically now that I see a light at the end of the tunnel, I feel a lot better. I guess in the back of my mind, I knew things really weren't working financially. I think the only reason I didn't face up to this last summer is that Caleb paid back his loan in late 2004 and that kept my afloat six months longer.

Oh, well. I will continue with Metro Girl -- as I have since 1998 -- and keep all the new clients I got, plus all the new efficiency practices like using QuickBooks, and soon with a job AND side income, I will once again have the money I need to start saving, do home repairs, get the 10 replacement fillings and crowns I need, etc. Whoopee!
