How To Improve Your Sanity During the Covid Crisis

It’s unbelievable. While it seemed that life was about to finally get back to normal with the gradual opening of states, all of a sudden an uptick in COVID-19 cases has hit the country like a tidal wave. While many governors have vowed not to completely shut down states again many are still not fully opened. And, to…

Looks like it is going to be harder on me than I thought. I am miserable in my job and emotional to boot. I lost my dad October 11, 2015 to a massive heart attack and his birthday is Friday. I don't want Friday to get here. Mom found out that there is money coming to her from his social security in death benefits and thought it was just going to be a couple of hundred dollars. Well, it is going to be enough to pay off my dad's funeral and still have enough to put back for a cushion for her.

As far as my job goes, I am a sales assistant for a company that would rather bring people in from outside the company to fill positions than to hire from within the company. There is not much of a turnover here anyway so there is no room for advancement and they seem to think that 25 cents an hour raise once a year is going to make a big difference. Don't get me wrong, I am happy for the steady work but I don't want to be an assistant for the rest of my life. I want to be my own boss and have my own craft business. Bad part is that no one seems to be ordering from me. I make plastic canvas items. I started working on hand sewn items because I have to get my sewing machine serviced (and then learn to use it) and making those items has proven to not be in my talent wheel. I can embroider but don't know if that would sell either. I don't know what to do and feel like I am doing all of this for nothing.
