Today was a fairly good day so far. I brushed my teeth, put on a new shirt from Goodwill that I bought, my clothes are clean and my shoes don’t have large holes in them.

I also washed my big blanket, charged my phone, got some stuff together, so that’s good.

  2. Clear out ALL coins out of purse and put into bags:  nickels, pennies, dimes and quarters.  Then put the small zip-loc bags into four separate white plastic tubs. keep adding onto them until the bag gets full, then maybe switch to a bigger bag/container. When bag is really full, take to a Coinstar to redeem for paper money. There is a Coinstar at Dave’s Supermarket at Severance, so I can take my coins there when I get enough of them.

Journal Entry:

Yesterday was an okay day. I made some phone calls. I called Noble Road Presbyterian Church and spoke to the receptionist there Stephanie about having a possible coffee shop/community space “We Will Rise” at the church. I told her that I was trying to get in touch with Judy Beeler who I had spoken to before at the church and she seemed really supportive and enthusiastic overall about the idea. She told me that I would either from Judy Beeler yesterday or today. So, if I don’t hear from her by the end of today, that I should give Stephanie a call back to let her know. So, I will do just that.


Also, I washed some clothes, made a doctor’s appointment for this coming Thursday at I believe 1:30, but I have to listen to my phone recording for sure because I think I recorded the date and time of the appointment on my cell phone. I also called Kristina Mullins to let her know what was going on with the job situation and that I have a meeting on Wednesday with I think her name is Karen from Goodwill.
