From none to some…

I lost my job a few weeks ago. My boss dropped off of the face of the planet and after two weeks of trying to get ahold of her, she finally emailed me and said that I was laid off due to budget issues. Great.

I’ve gotten two paychecks since the beginning of July, and that’s not good. I managed to get a super part time job but won’t get a paycheck from that job until next week (when my last paycheck from my last job shows up).

Things changed this week though! I interviewed two positions, one in merchandising and one at a new bridal salon. And they both WANT ME! This is the boost that I needed, but now I need to decide how to handle this. One is for part-time for a few weeks and then full-time while the other is willing to give me full-time. One would require driving 5 miles one day, up to 50 another. The other is 25 miles away. One pays great hourly. The other is less, but offers generous comission. One would require me to work at least one weekend a month. The othe would have me work Saturdays but would give me most Sundays off. I am so torn on what to do! Any advice?

Entered a contest…

We’ve gotten permission to start trying for a family when we want, and so I’ve thought that perhaps we can start preparing for that. There are a few blogs that I like to read, including and butterfingers for breakfast. Also, I hang out on One site that I’ve found lately is called, and let me tell you, it’s hilarious and informative. All of those questions about can I do this or do that are answered with links to where the information was found. Also, she hosts the occasional contest.
Check out today’s contest; it’s pretty cool!

Quick check in

Okay, I’d love to tell you that I’ve been fabulously busy or some other such nonsense, but it’s not true.  I’m looking for a new job as my boss appears to have fallen off of the face of the Earth.  Hubs is amazing, and we received some good news a few weeks ago: we can start trying again when we’re ready.  In regards to the book post from September, I realized that in a month I read 25+ books so I don’t think I can write reviews of all of them, but I am mulling over something to do with all of the books from a month’s worth of reading…stay tuned!
