Today, I start my first blog. I am new to this. I've read many different people's blogs and everyone has a different style. I find my mind jumps so much I wonder if I will be able to keep to a single theme.
First, I suppose I should introduce myself. I am Tisha (aka Marie). I am currently a stay at home mom. I haven't always been a stay at home mom. This is an endeavour that I only recently started on when I was laid off at the end of September. Before I was laid off I was a working mom. I worked in Intellectual Property as an assistant and a paralegal for almost 20 years.
Things haven't been so easy after being laid off. Our family's main source of income disappeared overnight. Yikes! I think that is something that would scare the daylights out of anyone. Nevertheless, I have tried to find little ways of making a little extra, and especially keeping a good attitude about this new adventure.
Yes, I have been trying to find work. I even worked for two weeks weeding a neighbor's gravel drive by hand to help make rent. I've submitted application after application. The economy just isn't so good and living in South Florida there isn't very much of a demand for people who have done little more than patents and trademark work. I am willing to try new things and who knows ... maybe this new adventure will lead enable me to follow some dreams that I never could before. I always knew I loved gardening. Now, I know that it is something I can take as much pride in as I did intellectual property work.
So, that's a little introduction to me. You will learn more and more about me, my thoughts, beliefs, and so much more in the coming blogs. I hope you will stick with me as I learn about blogging and I can assure you I will get better at this.
