Work Woes

March 2nd, 2009 at 05:03 pm

Today I was told that all my sick time...30 hours and 8 hours of vacation time I had been banking are now gone. Because I am part time from here on out if I need time off I will not get paid and I have zero benefits. I walked away from work today feeling really low and down. I just emailed my dad and asked him to ponder and think about the pros and cons of me working. I feel uterly worn out from trying to make it all work for a measly amount. I am not sure if I am supposed to be home saving money in other ways. I just feel so uneasy about it all. Hopefully my dad can give me his two cents.

Having my son home from college has been really fun. He is just a fun young man and we have had some belly laughs and comical moments between us all. He has reminded me that life is fun and it is always good to chuckle at what life throws at you.

I am still without a dishwasher.....I hope it gets fixed soon as washing so many dishes is plain old tiresome. I sound so spoiled I know.

This week my car and my son's car goes in for a tune up. We were supposed to do it today but the rental car was not available. So we go in on Friday. Hopefully we are ok.

Thanks for the wall paper ideas and stories. I hate wallpaper now with a passion. I looked at leather couches. WOW they are so expensive. I have got to figure out a way to get some leather but not go broke.

Did you see the news tonight? We as Americans are now saving too much money!
We are causing all the problems according to the white house. PLEAZE!!!!!!!!! Give me a royal break! I better stop watching the news.....it is so depressing and yet it is hard to believe this is our world.

    I was out of a dishwasher (and kitchen sink!) for close to a month- I know how you feel. Yes, I am spoiled with modern conveniences but I like being spoiled with modern conveniences. Smile

    Front Porch Mom,

    I understand why you are feeling low about your job. That really bites, losing all that sick time you thought you were accumulating. Hang in there, hopefully your dad will say something to make you feel better. Keep the faith! ((HUGS))

    I'm sorry about your loss of benefits. We're either spending too much or not spending enough..hmmmm I think I'll keep saving. Good luck on the dishwasher

    These days you have to do what's best for you, and saving is what's best for you, especially as your benefits are contracting. If you get sick, you'll need the money, tough cookies about spending it. {{{Hugs}}} over your bad news.
