I am going to quit the toy store. I am falling behind in school and I feel like I waste my time at the toy store. There isn’t a lot of work and they have two girls on a shift. I could be doing more productive things with my time. I am going to wait till the end of December. I would give my notice tonight, but the last girl that did that they let go right on the spot. Which I would be okay with, but I would like that extra money in December.
I think if I start off the New Year with just one job again and focus on school, I may realize this hope of finishing school faster.
Last night I realized that I am paid January 1! This means that I will have more money in December to put towards my saving/ debt goals as I don’t have to stretch the money for January’s rent! Woo Hoo! I felt much better last night after this awareness. Because I am not buying anyone anything for Christmas, I will start the New Year on solid ground. I will still have debt of course, but I am working on a plan of attack for next year to really lessen it.
And here are some positives about breaking up: last night to keep from thinking I deep cleaned my house, finished laundry (including putting it away!), and was able to put in solid time on my courses. I have also been walking Molly everyday to get out of the house (and Oryx comes along too, following behind…so cute!) which she loves. Some days are really easy, other days/some moments are tough. I feel better about my decision – if A is the one it will work out. If not, we can’t waste each other’s time.
And yesterday I made a steak in my slow cooker. I wasn’t sure if it would work. I made a marinade and then let the slow cooker do its magic all day. It was fabulous. So juicy! And still a little pink which I like. I am becoming more and more experimental with my slow cooker.
And that’s a little insight into my life for today….
