Life In 'Cruces – March Recap and Looking Ahead
It was a long month full of challenges and accomplishments!
March arrived with a bucket of work, challenges, car repairs, and decisions to be made. Both of my jobs were busy as ever, but I got through all of the projects. Job II has its ups and downs. Some weeks I have a lot of projects and some weeks I can kick back. Job I is always busy since I am wearing multiple hats. I am ending the month being busy on Job II. Today I didn't work as hard, but on Sunday...I will be crawling on the floor getting things done.
I had a few challenges this month including having my Baby Volvo's radiator replaced at a tune of $445.00. I got a good deal on the repair and the mechanic was able to get it done in only a few hours. Midas wanted over $1,000 to replace it. When getting car repairs done, you really have to shop around. I also had my car's shocks done and oil changed this month. I am getting my car ready for the big move. I just need to get the brakes replaced and it is ready to go!
My first accomplishment, I got my State of New Mexico business registration filed. I am opening my website design/freelance writing business in August of this year. I love working for myself and all of the tax breaks that come with a small business.
My second accomplishment, Life In 'Cruces.com is launching next month – Saturday, April 24th, 2021. I am leaving the Blogger platform and moving to Google Sites. I like Google Sites' drag-and-drop utilities and how quickly it publishes updates. Nicksplates.com is going away after so many years of recipes and photos. But don't worry...I am going to republish some of my favorite recipes on the new website.
My third accomplishment, I designed and printed new letterhead and business cards for Life In 'Cruces. In one of my former lives, I was a graphic artist and I channeled those skills again. I saved a lot of money designing my own marketing materials.
I can't wait for you guys to see the new website and all the marketing goodies. Also, I can't wait to see what April holds! I am ready for all the work!!
Welcome to MY SOON to be Life In ‘Cruces!!
