Posted by miss m on Wednesday, March 28, 2012 @ 2:27pm in Finances, General Blather, PhoenixFire Designs, Photography and Pics |

I’m only 11 sales shy of reaching 400 sales in my etsy shop! I would love to reach this milestone, so I would appreciate help in spreading the word. Perhaps you can share my shop link on facebook, or tweet it or pin a favorite item or two? More items available in the shop. And, […]

Posted by miss m on Thursday, February 23, 2012 @ 5:59pm in Finances, General Blather, PhoenixFire Designs |

Uh-oh. Etsy apparently realized I haven’t paid my bill since…um, well, you see what happened was…October. Hello, We are writing to you to let you know that your Etsy bill is overdue by at least 30 days. While we appreciate you selling on Etsy, we are unable to effectively operate our business if sellers do […]

All of these – and many more! – are available for purchase at PhoenixFireDesigns.etsy.com right now. Don’t forget, I also gladly accept custom orders. Want a […]

16 Weeks

Posted by miss m on Wednesday, January 25, 2012 @ 11:54am in Family, Finances, General Blather, Hysterectomy, Sickness and Health Issues |

I had to go back and count because I hadn’t been keeping exact track lately but today is 16 weeks since my hysterectomy. That seems like such a long time ago. But in many ways, it’s very recent. I think I’ve finally reached a point where the aches and pains part of the healing are […]

Weekend

Posted by miss m on Monday, January 23, 2012 @ 12:31am in Family, Finances, General Blather, Hysterectomy, Love, Sickness and Health Issues |

I spent most of Friday just in a serious funk. Kept crying because of the damned collection letter. It’s like, why even bother trying to be responsible and pay everyone off if I’m just going to get screwed over and ruin my credit anyway? Everything is stacked against you as the debtor and they make […]

Collections

Posted by miss m on Friday, January 20, 2012 @ 5:51pm in Finances, General Blather, Hysterectomy, Sickness and Health Issues |

So, even though the debt started as $1,200 and it’s down to $930 and I’ve been paying every month, apparently the “fact” that so long as you pay they can’t send you to collections is an urban myth. Every single person I’ve ever talked to both in person and online said just pay it each […]

Been hard at work making new items for the shop and today I got five new pieces photographed and listed! Between two new trees – a multi colored Opal and a watermelon tourmaline – and two pairs of sterling hoops (rainbow gemstone and emerald green aventurine) and even a new pair of 14k gold threader […]

Saturday Rest

Posted by miss m on Sunday, January 8, 2012 @ 12:49pm in Finances, General Blather, Hysterectomy, Love, Sickness and Health Issues |

I got more than a little overwhelmed on Friday when the links, emails, mentions, tags and hits just flooded in. It was crazy. So Saturday, Love and I took a day completely off the interwebs. We took a drive over to Orlando, talked, walked around, window shopped, people watched, had a burger, watched some fireworks […]

2 Drink Kinda Day

Posted by miss m on Tuesday, December 6, 2011 @ 10:36pm in Finances, General Blather, Hysterectomy, Sickness and Health Issues, Work |

Unfortunately for me though, I don’t drink. Yes, I hated my day job. And no, I really didn’t want to go back but that doesn’t mean the way things wound up doesn’t leave me really low today. Going to get my stuff, I felt like I was being punished. I felt demeaned as my former […]

Fun Monday But Dreading Tuesday

Posted by miss m on Monday, December 5, 2011 @ 11:19pm in Family, Finances, General Blather, Hysterectomy, Love, Sickness and Health Issues, Work |

Normally Mondays are the day no one likes. But today, I hung out with my Mom so it was a good day. We went to the mall and shopped and browsed and tried things on and just generally had a nice time. Found a pair of capris and a pair of shorts on clearance and […]

PhoenixFire Designs Updates

Posted by miss m on Saturday, December 3, 2011 @ 11:33am in Finances, General Blather, PhoenixFire Designs, Photography and Pics, Sickness and Health Issues |

Love’s doing well, sore but healing. What’s not doing so great is the finances since we had to spend $187 Thursday for the surgery that no one told us about ahead of time. Part of that money was earmarked for our past-due power bill but now…ugh. So, I’ve been hard at work trying to get […]

Got there at 9am, doc was late so he didn’t even get started until after 11am, done by noon, home by about 1:30pm. Got him his pain med prescription and have been helping him get around but he’s doing ok. Sore of course but good. I’m exhausted. And starving. Haven’t really eaten today and I’ve […]
