One of the difficult things for me about blindness is the way it makes things I used to do just a little bit harder. Things like going places independently or reading my mail.
And things like earning money and riding herd on the family budget.
I’ve got a staff post about that up over at my friend Crystal’s blog, Budgeting in the Fun Stuff So if you’re up to listening to me whine about never quite being able to catch a break, or at least not one that lasts, hop over to “When Does It End?”.
While you’re there, be sure to check out the rest of Crystal’s blog. She’s got a lot of great advice about money, entrepreneurship, blogging, and a host of other topics. Plus, she’s just really fun to read!
As I mention in the comments there, things are looking up a little since I wrote the post. Work has picked up a bit for MrH, and we’re exploring some options for him to pursue in his downtime. I’m working on finding paying writing gigs, and on balancing them so I don’t drop any balls!
I’m also looking into the possibility of selling my crafts, probably online. If anyone knows a good basic tutorial for getting started on Etsy, preferably free and online, I’m all ears!
Have you had one of those moments when everything seemed to be going downhill and all you wanted to do was whine? Did you manage to get past it? What helped you pull through?
