Going into Business


I’m trying to decide if I should once again go into business for myself.

I have my studio set up.  My sound is good.  My experience is there.

I have resources up the wazoo…but…

It’s the getting started that scares the Bejesus out of me.

What if I fail?  What if it’s a whole lot of money invested…for a whole lot of nothing?

I am confident in my abilities.  I am good with my surroundings.

Sigh.  Making decisions is never easy.  Spending money is never easy.

Plus, this whole sequestration and losing 40% of our pay is starting to wear on me.  Like, really.

Yesterday, I was in a bad mood.  No reason.  Just in a bad mood.  And I could not get out of it.  It really sucked.

Today is a better day…but I am struggling with thoughts of pay and money…and feeling like I HAVE TO GET SOMETHING IN PLACE BEFORE OUR PAY GETS CUT!!!!!

Gentle reader…we are looking at losing over $2000.00 per month.  With reducing some things, I can cut out about $800.00 from our budget.  (Getting rid of Dish Network and getting rid of our savings…sigh.)  But that still leaves us with a $1200.00 short fall.

Sigh.  My husband has worked hard to get where he’s at and works hard everyday.  I know we are blessed with what we have…and I am SOOOOO thankful we can still give where we feel we can!  Praise the Lord for that!

And I am not being facetious, gentle reader.  We will continue to give.  It’s not our money anyway.  It’s His.  We are where we are because of Him.  All the glory and honor go to Him.

So, that being said…to Him I will continue to turn my countenance.  Look for His face in all things.  And once again cling tight to the promise given us in Jeremiah 29:11. (paraphrasing gentle reader)

For I know the plans I have for you, Plans to prosper you and not harm you…

Amen and Amen for those words.


Imagine Dragons-

Absolutely loving the sound of Imagine Dragons.  A friend of mine mentioned on FB that she was loving them.  We used to be in broadcasting together so I know if she says something is good…then it probably is.  Funny thing is…I had heard some of their music before and liked them, but didn’t know the name of the band.  And score one for mom (that’s me gentle reader)…my daughter’s love them too!  So win-win-win for me.  Take a listen:


The beats are totally intense and dirty!  Love it!  The whole album is fantastic…there is not a song that I don’t like on the album.  If I had a record player, I would love to buy this in vinyl and listen to it on there.  I think the listening experience would be killer.  Sigh.  Record players and vinyl…I miss those days!  I mean I know I can purchase a record player/cd/mp3 gizmo but I don’t have that kind of cash to plunk out right now…so it will have to wait.
