I am just a bit cranky, and glad to have this space to vent - thank you my friends!
I just found that my bank account is $28 overdrawn. Not the worst thing in the world, but payday is 10 days away, and I will need to fill the gas tank about twice to get through work (I drive around 50 miles a day between clients' homes). We probably have plenty of food, but will run out of milk and fresh veggies. This all came about because I had a major car repair issue last week: $650 plus car rental. Yuck!
Ran out to the store for DD to get some packing tape for an Ebay order (go, DD!), and came home to find the dog had eaten 1 1/2 quiches I had stupidly left out to cool. Seriously, that was 9 servings, greedy dog! Grrrrr!
Very long story, but it looks like it will be very complicated for DD to get VA dependents' benefits for college. Don't know if it is even possible. A major part of my job is advocating for families to get help they need and deserve, but doing this for my own family is one of my least favorite ways to spend my time. Sheesh!
I keep applying for jobs that will pay better than my current one. I get few responses, and even fewer interviews. I know this is just how the process works, but tonight I wish folks would make their decisions more quickly! It is discouraging after a while.
OK, I am done whining. If those 4 things are all I can think of to complain about, I guess my life isn't so bad after all. Thank you for the spot to write it out and realize that it really is manageable. MDC to the rescue! Once again!
