Because of my pay roll schedule change, my bank account balance is low. I have money in my E-fund, but my bill paying account is low. No bills are due this week, a couple are due next week and I'm supposed to get a check for the newest part time job (5 days of work) this week. I only need about $10 of groceries to last until the 15th. I'm also putting it out to the universe that it would be really helpful to me if two lunches or dinners this week could just "appear" for me.
The second job is going better. Now that I'm getting into a routine and familiar with my duties, I'm a happier camper. The down side is I really have no days off for me. I've been working straight since Thanksgiving at one job or the other. The good part about the second job is I have access to a washer and dryer, so my laundry is done, but I would like a day to just hang out, lazy around and do nothing or at this time of the year, do my holiday cards, clean my house and dream about maybe actually getting a new herb garden planned for next year. Ah well, we have to do what we have to do.
I've not done any December goals or November recaps, it was too depressing for me to do so. Pretty much my December goal is to make up the lost income from the reduction of hours. I think I'll come close, it depends if I'm asked to work the end of the month.
My boss is away on a business trip this week. I'm pretty grateful about that. His hovering in the office and questioning every phone call that comes in is getting on my nerves,as well as the other staff as well. He is not handling this reduction in business well at all. One reason I took a job at this company was because they had been in business for over 30 years, were stable, and I had heard very good things about the owners/managers. I'm hoping this is a glitch.
I have decided to see what happens after the first of the year. If I still have to take a reduction in hours, I'm going to probably have to look for a new job. I really can't have a long term reduction in hours, a couple months, yes, more than that, nope, just can't do it. Not since I don't have a steady second job income. I may be spending my Christmas Holiday working on my resume.....
