Opportunities

Fabulously Broke in the City has an amazing life story...she lived an upper middle class lifestyle for many years because of her dad's casino win! And then..she lost a good part of it also because of her dad's casino "wins." Read about it here.

I'm an insurance girl this week. Our friends are out of town, and I often look after the office while they're partying away. (!!!) I used to have a Property/Casualty license, and worked at another office for a year or two, so it's not all Swahili. But it always takes me a few days to get back up to speed again...

This year, I'm working for pigs. No, not our friends! (Bet you thought that, didn't you...) Our friends raise porkers on the side -- and for my time watching the office, we'll have a whole pig, cut and wrapped, in our freezer come mid-August. It's one of the best pay rates I could have ever gotten...though it meant leaving Husband snuggled blissfully in bed this morning, while I trudged off to work. (He had the day off.)

Still very, very hot. And still.
