2019: Year in Review

2019 has been intense: I landed six new clients, a few thanks to one of the Web Developers I work with, and others from various networking events I attended.

In January, I was diagnosed with a Basal Cell Carcinoma on my right cheek; Mohs Surgery followed in June, and then too many Cortisone Shots for bump near my nose.

Writing-wise, it wasn’t my most prolific year. My story, “Winter Wonderland” appeared in April Grey’s anthology, Hell’s Highway. I’ll endeavor to do better in 2020!

Amazon Disappoints, Twice

I got some of Amazon Gift Cards recently, so I placed two separate orders; both arrived late to my local Amazon Locker. I requested a refund for one order that was over a week late; complicating things, I got a text this morning that my item was finally ready for pickup…I can’t accept it, since I already have the refund. Argh!!

Knocked Down a Peg on the Health Insurance Ladder

I signed up for Oscar last year and am very happy with the Silver Plan! Oscar rewards me with a $1.00 for every day I meet my steps goal, and they paid the bulk of costs when I needed surgery for a Basal Cell Carcinoma on my cheek. The Silver Plan has become too expensive, so I need to downgrade to the Bronze. Ugh! I actually met my deductible for the first time this year, so I’ve scheduled some doctor’s appointments before I get hit with huge deductible on my new plan…

Just Finished a Three Week Gig

Things have slowed down with my clients, much to my dismay, so I got a three week temp. job through an agency. I haven’t worked onsite in an office for 10 years, so there was a bit of a learning curve—they had a PC in the office—I use a MAC at home, so I had to learn all of the shortcuts. I do a lot for my clients: social media, updates, Photoshop, and SEO. In the office where I worked, each of those jobs were held by three different people…

To be honest, I wouldn’t mind working part-time in another office, it’s nice to have actual co-workers…
