It has been a rough month. Actually it started out a rough month. After only 2 days of work in November I lost my job. Technically I quit but really I was being forced out. I got my paycheck for the last half of October and in the envelope was a note saying that I was only going to be paid full wages for 1/2 of my hours starting with that pay period. Meaning that instead of the low $7.25 an hour for all of my hours that for 1/2 of them I would only get $4.45 an hour. Needless to say I just couldn't continue working for those kinds of wages considering the abuse my body was taking to do the job.
No luck on the job front so far. I have applied for some fairly decent positions though and am waiting to hear back on those. I also keep applying for freelance writing jobs though elance.com but so far nothing there yet either.
Trying to stay positive and upbeat but it is becoming more and more difficult. Today DH had a blow out on a tire and now we get to spend some of our savings on a set of new tires. We were hoping that we would be able to hold off on replacing them until I found something to help out with earnings.
I don't even want to do Thanksgiving dinner anymore... It just seems like such a hassle since I have to do everything from scratch due to my dairy and wheat intolerances. If I do cook Thanksgiving dinner it will most likely only be for me, DH and his parents anyhow. And to be honest they and us have been invited to a community Thanksgiving dinner where they all can eat the food. Maybe they all should just go and I will stay home.
