Some Great News....

Hey all... I got some great news. I found a job through our Great Lakes Staffing Agency. Its only one day a week for now and when the lady needs her vacation time or sick days. But its a start and it pays 10.00 an hour. All I am doing is counting money from 5:30 Am till about noon. Its for Konop Vending Machines.

I start on Monday May 19th. Jeff and I also picked up and early morning paper route. That pays 527 a month. Quite small but its money that we didnt have. It turned out to be a good week for us. Thanks for the good lucks.

Now on to my mothers day. It wasnt anything special to be honest but it was good. Jeff and girls gave me ten dollars and I got one of those bath kits. I got a bunch of soaking stuff and a bar of soap and two kinds of cream. I smelled like an orange when i got out of the bath last night.

We had spam for lunch because I was being lazy. You know with us having the paper route now we have to be in bed by 7:30 pm.. Yikes huh????

Update... Looking at giving up the paper route. Its 30 Miles and with gas being so expensive he either needs to raise the route money or Jeff and I talked about it. Its not worth losing half of our earnings to gas for this.

I'm glad you found another job - even if it's only a few hours for now - it's a sure thing. And with the paper route - well every little bit helps. It would be hard to go to bed at 7:30 but I suppose you do what you have to.

Way to go!! Now you just need your driver's license and you'll be set for anything. ;)

Gas isn't getting any cheaper either. You're probably better off with your sleep.

Hopefully you'll get more hours at the $10.00 an hour job. That would really be good, and would help out much more than the paper route if you get more hours.

Good call on the paper route! Your insurance goes up when you put that many more miles on the car too. Plus, your car wears out faster. M and M had to get a new car practically every year when they were doing papers.

Before I read your update and you said "paper route" I thought "Oh,no. Gas is far too expensive!" Seems you reached the same conclusion.

If you do a great job for your employer, Tweety, they may just hire you for something else. At any rate, every little bit helps!

I hate this about the gas though. It's totally insane that gas is so high.

Jeannie it was hard. We got up at 2 this morning and called the manager and told him no way and its not worth it to work rain or shine. Snow storm or not..

Tshsmom thanks.. I know I know.. I am in the right direction having my temps though.

ZS I know I might have an up date there or on the job front all together.

Gayle that is what i like about temp Agencies. Plus a weekly check..

LOL, Tweetie, counting money sounds like a nightmare of a job. But sometimes they lead to another, to another..... I often wish I had the personality to do cash (never good learn to run a register) - bookkeeping is now the "in" job. You are right - with gas going up and up - its $3.69 here (yesterday) - it doesn't pay to have to expend a lot of gas for a salary that won't compensate for it....somehow papers always figure out how to get one to work for bare minimum. Then you will be so tired! I hope the counting money works out good and that co-workers are pleasant!
