Besides working at the newspaper 30 hours a week and about 24 hours a week at the gas station, I now am working on an assignment from a freelance client who pays well (or in today’s market, a fair living wage). This assignment was a miracle: I thought it had been on indefinite hiatus due to budget cutbacks. It returned right at a time when our van needs repairs done sooner rather than later. (One repair is already done and we’re hoping to get perhaps four other urgently-needed ones).
Yes, I’m kept busy and have to be quick about blogging and journaling and throwing out lines for more clients and putting on hiatus non-paying clients, but it’s a blessing to be able to earn extra income.
