Aggravation

Thursday, August 25, 2011

i was having a pretty good day yesterday accomplishing a lot of things that I wanted to get done. Then, I came home and got the mail. There was a statement from my bank saying my account was overdrawn. ?????? Can't figure it out and must now go in to see what's up. Just what I need is to have to put money that I don't have into an overdraft!

    Something similar happened to me in June. My MC worked at the Walmart and I stopped at the drug store and it wouldn't work and then later I stopped at the grocery store and it wouldn't work either. So I called, and found I only had a $2000 limit and with my dental bills I had gone over my limit.

But the worst is, day we opened the door to go for a walk and there was small envelope attached to the doorknob with an electrical tie. Inside was a notice stating that the gas had been cut off and it would cost $125 to reconnect and a penalty of somethign else too. This is my dd's bills, but there they lost almost $200 just like that. Then they were going to get a payday loan to pay it, and they charge 10% per day for that....

Just one more thing!!!!!!

    I'm so sorry. I've made an error in my checking account before and I've also had the bank make errors on my account. Neither situtation is fun but once the situation is handled, you're going to feel a lot better.

if it's not your fault the bank can not charge you an over draft fee.

Surprise!

Wednesday, August 24, 2011

I did work yesterday. But, as I left, my boss told me she wasn't sure if I'd get any more days this week. This should surprise me but it didn't.

So, today I have a long to do list. I'm going to knock off as much as I can. The top three things are: apply for as many jobs as I can, pass out some Avon books hoping to get more customers, and find some stuff in the condo that I can put on Craig's List in hopes of selling for whatever I can get for them.

I'm kinda anxious to see exactly how much of my list I can get done. It's beginning to seem like a contest to me with the grand prize being a new job, less stress about money, and a person that's more happy and content with herself. I will definitely journal tonight and write about how much I did accomplish, what I think I can do better, and what my goals for the rest of the week will be.

    There's the old Patty attitude back.... hope God answers prayer very soon.
My sister is in a similar situation, her boss told her almost a month ago now that he was going to hire a CMA - certified Mgmt acct. for her job and she couldn't wait to leave, but she's stil there. He goes on holiday next week and comes back the day before she comes out here. She doesn't hate the job, but she's ready for a break

Bad Attitude

Tuesday, August 23, 2011

I have such a bad attitude when it comes to going to this job today. I don't want to go. I hate the commute. I didn't like that the boss waited until Sunday night at 8:30 to call and tell me that she had appointments yesterday and didn't need me to come in until today. I don't like how she decides on the fly when and for how long I come in. I'd rather spend my days putting my time into my Avon business and looking for another job. I have a typing test scheduled for the chance at county jobs and really need to practice. My speed is way down from not using it. I am just tired of my life being stuck in this rut and am looking for any way to change it.

    Good for you for going anyway. Sometimes we have to keep plugging away until we get to the next spot in our lives. Hang in there and keep working at making those changes.

    Good morning!
Above all else today....
Believe in yourself.
Concentrate on yourself and
your journey. Spend less time
wishing things were different
and more time accepting what
you've got as you strive to
make your dreams come true.
Then, you would have already
found peace and happiness
right there!

    No job is perfect. The job you are at is temp; look at what you like and don't like to use when you are interviewing for a 'permanent' job.

At least the boss called you Sunday night; some would wait till you showed up Monday morning to say 'we don't need you.'

See if you can find something positive about the job every day until the better job comes along.

A Day to See What I Can Come Up With

Monday, August 22, 2011

I got a phone call last night at 8:30 from my boss telling me that she has a couple appointments today and don't come in until Tuesday. She didn't know Thursday or Friday that she had these appointments? I get so aggravated with this job situation!

So, today is another day to see what I can accomplish, what jobs I can apply for, how many Avon books I can give out to new people, etc. I will stay busy, but I REALLY need a job that is more consistent, predictable and pays more money. I can't pay my bills now and I will soon have to start paying my student loan back. That's another $300 a month. There's got to be something out there. My luck has got to change eventually and turn somewhat good, doesn't it?

    Money stress is awful! I've been there. We still aren't flowing in money, but we at least have enough to keep our bills paid. We don't fight nearly as often now; we get along so much better! I sleep better too and am a lot less angry in general. I hope you find something soon. This job sounds like something for someone who needs a little extra cash, not a steady income. Good luck!

    You should be able to get a deferment on your student loans until something comes up. Just be sure to contact them as soon as possible. Just keep on doing what your doing to find new things.

A Good Day

Sunday, August 21, 2011

I'm having a good day today. I'm getting to do things that I have wanted to do for awhile, but just have been putting off for one reason or another, I actually got to sleep until I woke up without an alarm. I got to work on the yard and watch an air show while I did that. I found some old magazines in a friend's shed that I can't wait to look through. And I got to do a few more things that made me feel like I accomplished something. A definite good day so far.
