I've got tonight and tomorrow night left at my temporary job. (It has to be done by the 7th.) I have enjoyed the work but not the disruption to my somewhat shaky schedule - i.e. I haven't slept well. But, the money will come in handy.
I'm still hunting another job that will have some satisfaction and growth to it. The job that I'm supposed to start training for on Monday is definitely temporary for the first 90 days and only pays $8 an hour. After the 90 days, the company can hire me on permanently, but the most I'd ever make would be $9 an hour. The last time I did my budget, I think I figured I'd need between $12 and $13 an hour to pay my bills.
Yes, I want a satisfying and challenging job that will pay the bills. No, I don't want to have to work two jobs to make ends me. I really don't thinks that because of my age and my physical limitations that I'd really be able to do that. So, I'm still debating back and forth about taking the position. If I do take it, it will be difficult to spend time job hunting and going on job interviews. But...it will be some money coming in. What a quandary!
