Maybe not completely free…

Okay so starting the 24th, I will have a new job, however ever since I have got the good news, I have been worrying about the “old” job, especially since boss has decided NOT to replace me.

No one here is capable of doing all of the jobs I do and do it efficiently.  Not to say that it cannot be done but face it, boss is a blond nitwit and cannot even get to work on time, let alone get the paper out on time.  Heck, it took her 2 hours to do a simple deposit!   Only 4 checks!

I do have to have a second job, no doubts about it, I just cannot pay all of my bills on 30 hours.  I have an application at the gas station and the burger joint down the road.  B has frowned about fast food but I don’t mind flipping burgers.  Much worse jobs are out there.

So, boss asked if I might work part time.  Well, actually she asked if I would still write my column for the paper then went on to basically ask me if I could fit in some hours here.  I found myself agreeing.

I can put in a couple of hours on Mondays and come in early on Tuesday at about 7.  This gives me time to build the pages I need to, dummy the ads and format copy.  I can come in on weekends to build ads and will come in to make deposits.   I won’t be working more than 10-15 hours total but that will cover my odd expenses.

That does not mean that if an opportunity to work a few more hours at the gas station or the burger joint comes up, I will turn it down.  I need to get a bit of savings built up.  If I can, that is.

For now, I don’t have to worry about that hole in my income. It will mean that I always carry a notebook with me and perhaps my future netbook at all times.  But, you know, I do that anyway

  1. Don’t burn the thread too much Shadow. We can only do too much, and you’ll still be working two jobs.

    Good luck to you. 😀


    • I don’t have much of a choice. Have to pay bills. Writing is going to suffer but it means I can eat and keep the internet on. lol
