Day 158 - Trying to Keep Positive

Wednesday, September 04, 2013

Yesterday, when I went to my bank to pull out money, I was told I had a zero balance. What!?!? I had them print out the transactions and sure enough, I had a zero balance. Grrrrr!

This money in my checking account is basically my personal spending money set aside from my husband's and my other basically no worries for us financially.

I just cannot believe I over spent my checking account but found the error. I accidentally made a double payment on my student loans that I do not have to pay back yet...still in my 6 months grace period.

The bad part is that the savings account belongs to my son and I ended up "borrowing" to cover any debit bills that I may have used. Thank goodness I get paid this Friday so I can pay back to his savings account.

I am just ticked with myself that I made this error.

So, yesterday when I came home from the bank, I applied to at least 4 jobs. It is so time consuming! The frustrating part is that most likely I will not get a call or feedback that I did not get the job. I am applying to jobs that I definitely qualify for.

I did my volunteer gig last night as well just to get my foot in the door at a women's shelter. The other 2 women volunteers never showed up so I was basically left with 7 children for 1.5 hours. The woman at the reception desk never even asked for my ID, scary! I never volunteered there before so they would not recognize me. I was even allowed to take the kids outside... I just hope that volunteering there is not a waste of time for me...

So, yesterday was a huge BOO for me...but on the YAY side is that when I came home at 8:45 pm, my son and his girlfriend made dinner for the family and timed it to be ready for when I came home! It was delish! Tilapia, rice, and artichokes!

Well, tomorrow and the next day I will be working from 7 am to 9 pm. The good part is that I am at the home with the extremely long hallway! 13 round trips equals 1 mile!

Good night and thanks for hearing me gripe...

    I hear you. Job apps are very frustrated. I feel for you. I had applied for a job in March, had 3 interviews between April 16th and May 25th and then nothing. I checked online and my file was marked "not under consideration". Nothing from the recruiter.

    You will get the right job and it will be worth the wait.

    That is scary about the women's shelter. But here's to praying for a better week ahead for you!

    Sorry all that happened to you. I pray you get the perfect job!

    It is pretty scary about the women's shelter. You with 7 kids and them letting you take them outside without any background with this shelter or even an ID. I know you are fine, but what if someone else is not so safe.
