Wandering Thoughts from a Moto Make Up Artista

Wednesday, July 15, 2009


Okay, I know I haven't blogged in a while, but looking for work is ALOT of work. It's been hectic and I'm stressed. I'm on Craigslist every morning sending out my resume, but no responses. I'm starting to wonder if there's something wrong with my computer. I'm still at the Beauty Bar, but it's very part time. I sold my car, (needed the $$) and Cleopatra has been my companion everywhere I go. It's amazing how much I save on gas. I love riding to everywhere!

I wish I was going to Sturgis to meet some of you, but not this year. Like they say, I'm so broke I can't even afford to pay attention. Max got laid off too...

I have lots of faith and I know I'll get steady work, eventually.

Peace to all and hope your enjoying your summer riding!!

    Wow Mimi...I'm so sorry that things have gotten so rough! Keep the faith. Life will turn around eventually! This can't last forever. I'll keep you and Max in my thoughts and send work karma your way! There are always other Sturgis Rallies...it's been going on for 69 yrs. :)

    I'm so sorry to hear that the stinky economy has hit your house too. Glad that you popped in to let us know that you're still alive and kickin' though. Don't be a stranger sweetie.

    I've been thinking about you! Things will get better, at least that's what I keep telling myself. :)

    Sorry you won't be able to make it but like us Red Sox fans said for decades until very recently, "There's always next year." I really hope you guys find work soon. Ride safe.

    Keep your head up... things will eventually turn around.

    The nice thing about Sturgis... it happens every year.

    Take care... good to hear from ya.

    That sux but know how you feel. I was laid-off for about 6 months back in '04.

    People I talk to tell me the job market may be opening up a bit here in Vegas. Hopefully that will spread over to your area..

    Sorry to hear that your job search isn't going so well. My hubby was laid off 10 weeks ago and spent all his usual job hours searching for a new one. I'm happy that he's found a new one, but we'll have to live in 2 states for a while until I can find one in the same area. Seems like it's hard for everyone right now.

    I still have my car, but my daughter has taken it over this summer while she's home from school. I don't mind though 'cause like you, I get to ride to work every day with Pearl. I'll be sending happy thoughts of a new job your way.
