Hi. I'm back for a few minutes.

You'd think with all of the changes in my life in the last 30 days, I'd have much to say, but I don't.

I'm just too lazy but I know a few of you have wondered where I've been...

I was laid off from TSC the first week of January-something to do with not being able to get loans for the construction projects- so I added 3 classes to my schedule-I am now a full time student at the University of Utah.

I am not, nor do I plan to look for work in the near future. Thanks to a good savings and a partner who is (currently) working, I will be able to meet all of my financial commitments while I finish my schooling this semester. Let's keep our fingers crossed and hope that NF doesn't become another victim of the financial mess our country is in.

I'm an environmental studies major and I'm also planning to get BS in geography for fun. I still don't know what I want to do when I grow up but I'm pretty sure it has something to do with trying to save our species.

My house is cleaner than it's been in years and that awful pain in my shoulder, the one that paralyzes me when I'm washing dishes or making dinner, it hasn't visited me in 3 weeks. I am much more pleasant now and I think it's because I currently have no stress or if I do, it doesn't bother me.

I've decided that I never want to work in an office again (did you know there's light in the day and sometimes, it's warm and breezy?) and that full time student status is much more fun. I'll let you know how that works out.

Oh, the best part about getting laid off? I can now use public transportation every day- I don't have to drive during the week. It's freaking awesome. (and I've lost weight too)

So there, I'm doing great. I pouted for about an hour after I got word of losing my income but in that same hour, I added classes to my schedule. I'm not one to give up an opportunity and this major change is certainly one of them. I've been through worse things in my life so big changes don't always scare me- I just plow ahead and keep moving forward.


  1. Sounds like you've got a good thing going. Being a student and not having to worry about money? Awesome...


  2. What a woman! I think that is fabulous. Have fun--I miss being a student.

  3. okay... I am a sap. I just got teary and I don't know why. Maybe it is just the beautiful reminder that there are good things in life, like sunshine and warmness, and life... I decided winter is boring. I need to sit out in the sun again. It is good to have you back. I have missed our FB chats.

  4. Hooray! I admire so much the way you pick yourself up and never let life kick you in the ass. You're my hero! (gush gush)

  5. There is one major disadvantage to your new life: less time on gmail chat. :) But I guess it's worth it if you're going to save our species. We need more people like you!

  6. YAY for mfranti! please please please save our species. (and keep enjoying sunlight and the breeze too.)

  7. I've been worried about you. It's what I do best, after incoherent rage and incomprehsible math (plus love for my kids, friends, and random cold bums on the street)


    Plus, is FMH going to kick me off for my latest post?

    Plus plus, my continuing serious health problems have at least some probability of being temporarily alleviated (so I can go back to work and not starve on the street with my children and the toothless, cold, worthy bums). My life may not be over after all.


    Djinn, still spinning, but in a positive direction.

  8. wow, did i say i was gonna save our species? if i did, i didn't mean to.

    i just want to help. do my part and all that.

    thanks guys. i'm thrilled to hear from y'all. makes a girl feel special.

  9. Thanks for having my back. That sounds oddly wrong. Thanks for supporting me on an unnamed website where i was treated rather harshly.

  10. Hey Keep your Hypocritical Views to your Self You know nothing about our church or the People in it so dont Judge us as a whole. We want Religious freedom for ALL. But wrong is wrong and the FLDS is Wrong. And every Religion should Obey the Laws in the country in which they are subject to!
