Friday Foto and Story

This photo was taken just over 2 years ago and just after I had kicked off the contractor and begun to do my own work on my studio. It is in that category of you have come a long way baby! And this has been one of those weeks where I have been reminded of that again and again.

Have not heard from lawyers or the contractor from hell and so that is still an open issue but I am of the no news is good news take on this. But I have at last completed my almost four years of US debtor's prison with a completion of my Chapter 13 three months early. Supposedly this will repair my credit rating. I don't know that I will ever do credit cards again though I tell myself the only reason they were a problem was because of the ski accident and the 2 1/2 years of medical treatments and not being able to work even with my own mask business.

Now the studio is complete, my debts are settled, the van is fixed and the art studio trail is open. So I think it will be happier days in the very near future.


  1. congrats on completing chapter 13 - that must be a relief. i remember all the kerfuffle when the contractor from hell started arcing up damn him. let's hope he remains in oblivion.

  2. You certainly have come a long way.

    Looking back over the past couple of years, so many of my contacts have experienced ups and downs. At this point most are definitely having better days and some are soaring to new heights. Let's hope it stays that way.

  3. Sounds as though things were pretty bad for a while there, Jacqui... I am sure now that the studio is completed and everything else has settled down, you can relax a little and concentrate on your work and your art.


I appreciate all kind comments on my art and poetry.
