I had Friday off because the girl that I'm working under was going out of town. She didn't have the time to get stuff ready for me to do while she was out. Although I could have used the money, it was good that I had the day off.
First off, Thursday was such a long day that it was nice to not have to get up so early. I was then able to do some much-needed house work in the morning. I got a lot of my Avon delivered in the afternoon and was able to help my mom color her hair. I was then able to kick out a few more things on my to-do list when I got back in.
Saturday morning was spent at a financial seminar at a local food pantry. Not only did I learn a few things and find out about a few places that may be able to help me, I am now eligible to go to the food pantry an extra two times this year. When work is so scarce, all of this is extremely valuable to me. One thing I found out was that hospitals will not hire a person with bad credit. I knew that about banks and credit unions, but didn't about hospitals. I can now cross them off my list when searching for jobs.
I got some more things ready to return to Avon after the seminar. That took me awhile as I had to go through my box of extra inventory, then find the right part number for the products. Some of the items were things that I purchased on sale thinking someone might buy them; others were items that people ordered and for whatever reason decided they didn't want them. It takes awhile to do and I was glad I finally had the time and the motivation to do it.
I have a wedding shower to go to this afternoon for my "extra" daughter. (She's both of my daughters' best friend and I do really feel that she is my extra daughter - she's spent so much time with us!) So, I finished wrapping presents yesterday. I then had the decision to make of what to wear. I had originally purchased a dress online thinking I would wear that. I tried it on again and decided I just didn't like the way it fit. So, back it went to the store. They gave me a store credit. I figured I'd look a little while I was there. I did find a pair of pants and a pair of jeans that fit me well. I didn't have enough credit for both, so I decided on the jeans since I needed them more. I have a little more credit left. But that shopping trip will be for another day, another time. It definitely won't go wasted.
I'm glad I am having a productive weekend. It feels good to be motivated and actually get stuff done that I needed to do.
