Channeling my inner hillbilly

Hi yall! As I write this I am highly considering just crawling back into bed, maybe I will dream the winning lottery numbers and they will be seared into my memory long enough to buy a ticket. That being said...

I had a GREAT time last night! I channeled my inner hillbilly big time. I went to a free country music concert and it was amazing! It was outdoors on a military base and the weather was PERFECT. It was cool and breezy and..perfect. Normally we have mosquitos that resemble terradactyls and they move in groups of 10,000; but not a single mosquito attended! Due to the hillbilly nature of the concert, there was lots of beer. But, most of my experiences were very positive. The people in front of us were very sweet and offered to buy me drinks, etc. There were some jerks there that I saw early on, but, they were young Navy guys, and, they weren't directing their jerkness at us.

I brought my two daughters and they each brought a friend. I actually ended up with extra tickets in the end. I even had room for 3 more humans in my truck. I was told I needed to get handicapped parking back for this event if nothing else. We literally parked up on the pier in VIP/handicapped, lol. I walked a lot, stood a lot, and moved to the music a lot, though I wouldn't call it dancing. I am sore today but I'm ok with that. I'm also hoarse from all of the hillbilly channeling. I'd do it all again tonight if I could!!!

We all needed that concert, thank God for free concerts. It's nice to see military appreciation like that. I haven't been having a good time at all lately.

I'd like to take a moment to whine, vent, and rant...

Washer still not fixed, been over a month. It's been a HUGE battle with the home warranty company and with the contractors. We pay for a home warranty so these things don't happen!!To add to our list of broken stuff, add the microwave. It just.stopped.working. No warning. I don't know if I've previously ranted about the many things that have broken and stuff, but it's been insane!

I've been trying to get online work from home jobs but they all require a credit check, thanks to our lack of having the same amount of income that we used to have, and prior stupidity at creating debt, my credit is trashed. I highly doubt they'll want me once they see it, and I have to pay for the screening. Then, I have job offers from places that definitely want me to be thin. Pleaces with sales jobs like car dealerships. Ever seen a 450 lb female car salesperson? Not that I would want to do that, but, I could and would at this point. I have been really stressed about it all because I am GOOD at stuff but it doesn't matter! My current physical state and my credit are now in the way, if I can't get a job, those things will just get worse.

On that, I went to the doctor yesterday and he and his nurse are both thrilled with my weight right now. I'd be more thrilled if I were losing as rapidly as I was when I could afford to juice. But, with my stress levels and basic psychoticness, I couldn't handle doing only juicing all the time anyway. I am thrilled with this weather though, going to drag people out for walks all weekend!!!

I hope everyone has a great weekend!!!
