Spawnie's Life as a Retail Slut
Friday, August 20, 2004
Well I'm poor again.
Tomorrow, I talk to my old boss, at the gas station, to see if I can get my old job back. I hate working 2 jobs, but I need the money. So I'll be back to working almost 80 hours a week again. Yay !
In other news, TheZombieSpawnie house is going well. The place has a few issuses, but anything is better then that run down ghetto apartment we were in. We have a deck, and a garage. The kids call the garage "Mikey's House" it must be because I go in there more then anyone else.
Work is going well at the Auto Parts Store. I won a contest, so next week, I get a day off with pay. Go Me ! I get a week's vacation in September, I'm planning on going to Chicago. I miss home a lot, I'll only be there visiting, but it'll help my homesickness for a while. I'm planning on getting my tattoo finished while I'm there, and probably add another one. It has been almost 2 years since my last tattoo, I need one bad.
I still don't have my computer back, that's part of the reason why I'm going back to the gas station. Working 2 jobs suck, but when you make like 900/month, and have 850/month in bills, you don't have much of a choice in the matter. I'm going to be changing my spending habits this time though. I'm going to send everything I can, to the bank, so I can get my truck paid off. I'm tired of having a 400/month car payment. When that's paid off, my life will be a bit easier. I have a little over a year left on the loan, if I can hunker down, I hope to have in paid off in less then a year.
I'll have a phone again on Monday, so I can fax, and call a couple of places about jobs. I'm hoping I can find one job, that'll pay me what I'll be making working two. During the packing and such, from the move, I found some old pictures of me and my ex. It brought back some old memories. I do kinda miss her, I don't know why, but I do.
My sister is doing better now, that she got her medication. She has MS, and the medication costs almost 14k per year. Her doctor worked with the drug manufacturer, and since she is a poor college kid, she was able to get the meds for just the cost of shipping. So she gets her meds for like 100/month. I guess not all doctors are bad. She has also lost a lot of weight. The meds have a side effect, of flu like symtoms, so she doesn't eat a whole lot, plus she does a weight watchers kinda thingie. My sister is now a size 2, she used to be a size 8 , I can't wait to see her again. I'm sure she is much happier now.
Other then that, there is nothing new going on. I still hate Michigan, and still miss ChicagoLand. I'm still miserable, but if I go back to working 80 hours a week, I'll have a lot less time to miss Chicago.
Time to go do other things.
Catch ya on the flipside.
