Off the Top of My Head
You know that feeling you get when something fits perfectly? We moved into this new home and everywhere I look I find something new that fits exactly how it should.
We’ve had a couple of stools for years that we rescued from the trash room of the Pearl Apartments. They never really fit anywhere. They were too small for the bar at the last home, as well as for the island in the apartment. They just kind of floated around until we got here where they fit perfectly under the kitchen bar.
I got a new desk when we were at the other house, and I really love it. It’s a big, L-shaped desk that fits all my computers and monitors perfectly… but it never really fit in the bedroom where I needed to put it. It stuck out into the middle of the room where we had to maneuver around it if we wanted to get into bed or go to the master bathroom. It was either that or cover up the door. When we moved it over to this new house, into the office, we put it in the corner that I instinctually believed it would fit, and there is exactly one inch clearance between it and the doorframe. A perfect fit.
I was the most worried about our table. It’s a huge table that can fit 8 chairs. I specifically got it with tabletop gaming in mind. In this new house, there is no place that seems to accommodate a table that big. I was afraid we would have to sell it and get a new, smaller table that would fit into the small dining nook off of the kitchen. We brought the table in and slid it into the nook and, lo and behold, it was the EXACT size it needed to be to bump up against the window in the nook and stand flush with the end of the nook.
And perhaps the most exciting: For years I have suffered through living conditions that were only optimized for women in the bathroom. I only realized when we started moving in that the master bathroom has a toilet that was big enough to fit a man to sit on comfortably!
It’s a perfect fit. And I am happy.

The Business Section
I’ve found myself scrolling through Indeed.com and ZipRecruiter for more opportunities, whether they’re contract-based or part time or, depending on the opportunity, full time. It’s not that I feel like I need a new job, it’s just that I feel like I would feel a lot more secure if I had a steady income along with the income I draw from month-to-month clients that could theoretically drop me at any time. If you have the need of a remote worker or know someone who does, give them my name. I’m really up for anything and I’m good at video editing, social media, and blog writing.
