Earning your keep

A few weeks ago the hard drive in my MacBook Pro died.
I lost everything that I had not backed up. The last backup was a few weeks prior to this happening.

Luckily when this happened I had 12 days left on the computer's warranty. Which makes one wonder if there really is a god up there!

So the last few weeks have been spent trying to get all the software and programs back up and running on my computer. Luckily I have a patient husband who has been doing most of this for me. If I was doing it by myself the computer would have ended up through a window, in the yard, with a hammer in it!

That being said, I have had a lot of issues with frustration lately. The littlest thing is setting me off. I NEED a vacation and badly! Luckily one is coming up and I DESERVE it!

Which brings me to my next issue...DESERVING WHAT YOU HAVE!

I believe in hard work and working hard for what you have.

In college some classmates called me Princess...gosh locals still do call me that. They thought that I was spoiled rotten (of course they did not grow up in Lower Merion and have NO idea on what spoiled is...but I degress) I don't know why. Never understood why. I work. I work hard. I have earned everything I have. My parents always provided for me food, clothing, shelter, an education and culture. But they taught me that you have to work, save, and earn your keep. I was never given a car. I had to buy my cars. Working = Earning!

So it really drives me nuts when people get what they don't deserve...handed to them on a silver platter. I call it Paris Hilton Syndrome. Be a fuck up and get rewarded for it.

If you don't work for it, how can you appreciate it?

I have my tours, my jewelry on etsy, all the stuff I sell in town, and work in a shop one day a week. I work and work and work and feel that I have earned my house, my new bathroom (which still isn't finished) my hearse, my saturn, and my VACATION!!!
And because I have earned them I appreciate them. I care for them. I love them.

That being said, my tangent is now over and I will now blast Lady GaGa and finish my custom orders!!

  1. I LOVE your 'take' on things. I hear what you say about working...if it were really possible to "work my butt" off, I would be so very thin!
    I think those individuals who think this all comes 'easy'...just haven't worked as they don't get it!
