Make that a double & extra sugar on the rim pahuleeze!

Can you believe it?? It’s been 8 months since my last personal post!!

Well if you thought that last week in August was a ride…wait till I tell you about all the crazy foolishness that has happened in this Downsized living on a bottle water budget Diva’s life, the past 8 months! 

So when we last chatted I was packing the house with the now insignificant other and preparing to move across the country to Atlanta. When a virtual friend of mine introduced me to an awesome new web-series and my next client! Which as we get caught up you will see was the bright shiny spot in my world next to my son and the new grandson these past few months. 

But before we go there let me tell you what a time I had! Dodging the devil and his minions as they tried to keep a Diva from rising!

So as I was saying the crate was packed and I headed to the Bay Area where I stayed with my parents for a few weeks getting caught up and waiting for the money to arrive from my new client. Let me tell you it was like 1983 all over again! Life was good except I still had my 1983 curfew of 12pm…which ironically worked out as I somehow started dating my boyfriend from high school that same year! LOL it was hilarious watching him ask my Dad if he could take me out for each date. After 30 years this man was still intimidated by my Dad and was afraid to shake his hand.

Ok enough about that on to even wakier stuff. So while I was there I had the task of getting my parents up to speed on the new bag of tricks I had added to my list of business services. Trying to get to folks over the age of 65 to believe me when I said that people pay me to manage their facebook & twitter accounts and that I also get paid for designing socially engaging strategies for facebook, twitter and text messaging was not easy but after they watched the number of tweets go by during the twitter party for the web-series they soon became believers. But Baby Boomers are fickle people so they believe one day and ask, So are any major corporations hiring for this skill set?” tomorrow!After a few weeks of  badgering from the parents about not taking the "regular jobs" the AT&T/ PG&E recruiters have been calling with and getting put on restriction for coming in after midnight!?! Yep you read that right. 

FINALLY I receive the funds from my client and venture on to my final destination of Hotlanta to get ready for my “Sex In The City” in the South” new life!  Well after attending a few going away parties in the Bay first anyway….or so I think!       

 Chile my head hurts just thinkin' about all the foolishness that took I'ma need a break come back next week for more...just sayin...more sugar on that rim please....
