Random Happenings

I haven't been blogging too much about my life on here lately have I? It's been these broad abstract thoughtful posts of lists and such. But nothing really real you know? I think it because I can't formulate a whole post about what has been going on in real life lately. So here are some random bullet points!

- I am finally going to get some unemployment money. I went down to the unemployment office on Wednesday and waited in line only to find out I need an appointment and the next one wasn't available until next Wednesday. So I just decided to wait it out. Not an hour later a guy from the unemployment office called and went over what my former employer had told him they had paid me and did I agree? I wasn't quite sure, but I said yes just so they would get the ball rolling on some checks. So yay! My check for the past three weeks is on it's way!

- I have been trying to get in as much pool time as possible while everyone is at work because my neighborhood pool gets ridiculously crowded on the weekends. Well everyday I have been there this same group of college students shows up and everytime they don't have a key! I don't think they live here. I pay over $70 a month in HOA dues for that pool and it makes me mad that they just come in with their beer and loud music. I have taken to getting up from my chair and hopping in the pool as soon as they pull in the parking lot and crossing my fingers that they won't find someone to let them in, but they always do. Dang pool crashers!

- I start my new job on Monday! I am really nervous because this is unlike any job I have ever had. It is not in a corporate office for one thing. And #2 the lady that hired me has been kind of laid back about this whole process so I have no idea what to expect on Monday. Plus I think I will be an "independent contractor" not an "employee" so I don't know what that's all about either. But I'm still excited and I have a feeling I might love it.

- Umm so remember how witty guy and I broke up. Well, we got back together, then decided to just be friends and then got back together. I'm not going to write much more about that because he doesn't like reading about himself on here, but it takes up a pretty big part of my life so I thought I should let ya'll know that is still going on.

- My insomnia is back. This time it is really bad and even Ambien doesn't help. I fall asleep just before or right when the sun is coming up and don't get up before 10. I am so nevous about how I am going to correct this before I start my job on Monday! Luckily I don't have to be there until 9, so it is a little bit forgiving.

- I hate suppressing my spending bug during this economic downturn. I want/need the following things so bad it hurts: an iphone 3GS, a pedicure, a piggy bank (for my new points/diet system thingy), a trip to the beach, a trip to Carowinds or Kings Dominion, hardwood floors, a new sink, granite counter tops, a new purse, to take Cam to an agility class, a trip overseas...a lot of these things have to do with my list which I am getting nervous about completing since I'll turn 29 next month! Ugh that sounds so old.

So yeah I think that sums it up. Ta ta for now!

Glad that you got your check sorted out. Good luck with your job on Monday - exciting times...

Good luck on your new job! Just remember, if you're a true independent contractor, they won't take taxes out..which means you need to set aside like 30% for taxes at year-end, just to be safe:) Hope you enjoy the new challenge!

I wish I had a neighborhood pool I could sneak into. Hmph.

Oh man. I've been wanting/needing the new iphone too. ALAS, it's still just a normal phone for me. Maybe someday ...

A big BOO to the pool crashers, but at least you're still finding time to get out there! We have a big beautiful pool in my building that I can actually SEE from my kitchen, but I've been ... once. Once since it opened at memorial day. Sad.

I haven't been swimming once yet this Summer....I don't think I swam all last Summer either. Sad, I know.

I know how you feel about turning 29....I've been 29 for two weeks now! :-D I am definitely feeling the pressure to accomplish things on my list, especially since I haven't done so well since creating it. You can do it! :-)
