One Of These Days...

One of these days, all the bad crap in my life is going to pass and I'm going to have nothing but bright and cheery stuff to post about, full of rainbows and butterflies.  But for now....I'll just tell you how my Monday was.

I started my cycle...bloated like the Goodyear blimp...hormones are raging....worked out at the gym tonight for a good hour and a half trying to relieve some stress....only to come home and check the mail a few mins ago and find a letter from the Dept of Labor...the one I've been waiting on.  I am not receiving another extension.  The paychecks have ended. 

Their website states that the minimum wage right now is $7.25/hr, so I will be pounding the pavement tomorrow collecting applications from different retail clothing stores, gas stations, etc.  I absolutely REFUSE to put my fat self in a fast food restaurant environment.  I'd rather live in a cardboard box on the side of the road.  Let's hope it doesn't come to that. 

Hope everyone is having a super fantastic Monday (full of rainbows and butterflies)!  :)

  9. Sorry for your bad news, but at least that's the end of that phase and onto the next. I'm hoping it will somehow bring good things your way even though it's probably hard to imagine. Good luck with the job hunt.

  10. Try waiting tables. You can actually make some pretty good money and alot of places won't require experience.

  12. I'm sorry to hear you won't be getting the extension. Best of luck with the job hunt, I know you'll find something! I understand about not wanting to work in fast food places, I worked at 2 different McDonald's over the years and it's bad for your diet..

  13. Tammy, sending good thoughts your way that you find some work that will get you through this. One day at a time. Taking care of yourself and being healthy can only help. You are an inspiration and I know you have the strength to get through this.

  14. Hey, the census bureau near me is having a job fair and has jobs, I wonder if that's a possibility for you in the short term?

  18. It wouldn't be life if it was just all rainbows and butterflies and if it were we wouldn't appreciate them as much.

    I'm so sorry the Dept. of Labor denied your extension. That really s*cks! Good luck out there on the pavement. I've been looking at jobs that require some physical activity. I hate the thought of going back to sitting at a desk for 40+ hours a week.

    Hang in there. This too shall pass. ;)
