More Plans

Yeah, Tuesday was really a stinker... 


In order to sooth my mood I decided to completely take the day off... I was tired, sore, grubby and feeling defeated... 


We didn't have much money left but I was looking forward to being paid Thursday... always looking toward the future.. that is me... always living today in hopes of what will happen tomorrow... which does not work because tomorrow never comes... not like I imagine it anyway... 


We went to get a few groceries, splurged on a 3 dollar microwave pizza, and headed down to get a room for the night. I was determined not to worry about one more stupid thing that day... 


We ended up getting the same room that we got last week. They charged us more for it than before. I scoffed at the price and asked if it might be a mistake, then I stewed as I paid the extra and swore to myself that we would not return there... The place is a real dump and if I wasn't in the position I'm in, I would raise a holy terror about the condition of the rooms and the prices demanded... 


The whiskers from when Wally shaved last week were STILL in the sink...


I briefly wondered if we'd get bedbugs... What was I thinking?... It's too damned COLD for bedbugs to survive here! Haha!


All I wanted to do was play on the internet, and even the internet connection was the pits there, so soon enough I was frustrated and lost in my own thoughts...


I should be working... The shape I'm in right now?... I should be working as much as I can... I should be LOOKING for work, instead of staring into this frozen computer screen..


The next morning, Wednesday, Wally and I were getting ready to check out and had planned to go get a free hot lunch at the church, then I had an appointment to donate plasma, and then we'd spend the rest of the day at the library. The phone rang and I answered it. I was called in to work.


Here we go again, cancel all plans... I went in to work. "Plans" would be postponed until Thursday...


Thursday the phone rang again... called in again?


No... This time it was Blob-Employ wondering if I'd be interested in taking a "scheduled position" at the cereal plant. They had requested me... 


It's a three days 'on", three days "off" shift... starting the next day... Friday, Saturday, Sunday... 12 hour shifts.


Yes, I'll take it!
