New car for the family!

Sunday, November 10, 2013

My kids dad helped my daughter get a new (used) car. Things are getting better. And in the long run it will be better because we were starting to have slight problems with the old car. I'm sad because my daughter loved her other car (beetle convertible). But this car is a lot more practical for us. 3 adults in a beetle (no small adults to boot) it was like a clown car. Also I was wanting to get a bike rack put on the car, but it is hard to find one that will work on a beetle convertible.

So new car. New job. Still working the old job to get out of the hole. My plan is to work part-time at the old job for two more weeks, but I will work longer if I am able to. It depends on if I need to take classes or not. And of course if they want me to continue. I would think they would because they can't keep people. Too much stress - too little pay.

Will see.

I asked for a break and I got it.

I got a new job!!! I will be making about $2 an hour more than my current job. The hours will suit me better and I will be working with my sister. My sister is an LPN, I am a CNA. We won't be on the same shift, but will see each other during shift change. My sister helped me get the job by mentioning it to her boss. She has been helping my out so much lately. We are borrowing her car until we can get a new one. I have not always lived close to family that can help out in time of crisis. I have struggled more in my life than was necessary because of it. Family may drive you crazy at times, but they are there when you need them.

It would be ok if you cut me a break life.

Well things have not gotten any better with the car. The place we got the car from is saying we owe almost as much as the car cost when we bought it 2 years ago, and we have been making payments. At this point it is probably not worth getting it back (even though my daughter loved that car).

So her dad is going to help out to get something else. I think we will just get something to get us around and not have to worry about payments. We are all wanting to start riding bikes to work, but we need something if the weather is bad. Not to mention we need to buy a bike.

I'm still looking for a new job, but of course without our own car I will have to keep the search close to home.

I have been making poor choices when it comes to food, but I choose today to turn that around.

TOPS was a gain, but this is a new week.

I decided I need to do more blog entries - for myself. Put down some of my own struggles and joys.

I am dealing with a bit of stress right now. My job is keeping me stressed, but I am glad to have a job. I am still looking for better. This week-end they came and picked up my daughter's car even though she had made payment arrangements with them. We all depend on that car. She is trying to get a hold of them and figure out why and how to get it back. Thank God I have an awesome sister who let me borrow hers while we figure this out.

Money is tight as usual. I thought we were going to get caught up on everything (except the car) this pay check; now I don't know. I still am trying to stick with my weight loss plan but I have been eating more sugary foods.

I finally got back to walking in the mornings.

I have 3 days before I weigh in at TOPS again and I want a loss (even if it is small). My goal is 10 in a row. I think I only need two more weeks.

Blessings to all - I hope to be able to type better news tomorrow.

    The rants are as precious as the joys. Thank you for sharing. I've found it helps getting it out there. Maybe no-one's even listening, but life's not all a bowl of cherries (is that the expression?). Hope things start going your way again soon. Best of luck! And thank you for my virtual birthday cake, it was yummy. emoticon emoticon emoticon

This month is a lot harder

Monday, October 14, 2013

Last month the weight just came off day after day. This month it is a lot slower. I know that is normal and I need to keep at it.

I did the jumping rope again yesterday and I think I got up to 4 or 5 in a row. Seems like I had a lot more misses but I will keep it up.

I didn't do very good in the eating department though. I will do better today.

I better get moving and get ready for work.

Please let me find a new job this week.
