Okay, so it’s been a while since my first and last post. Hey, I was trying to sort things out. Let’s start all over.

Day 2. Now what? Well, if you really think about it, only one thing has happened. You’ve been let go. You no longer have an office, a restaurant, a store, or a music studio to go to. So, you stay home, save on gas, clothes and lunch. Watch your language! I’m not making light of the situation. Hell no! (I don’t have to watch my language since I’m the one writing this.)

Cry, scream or break something (not too valuable as you may not be able to replace it just yet). You owe it to yourself. Life sucks right now! Done? Now, get it together and let’s go. There’s a lot to do, especially during these times.
