Ahhhhhhhhhhhhhh... a spa. How nice. Sounds like a deal !
Well, I'm off for the weekend.. offered to help out but they were ok as far as patient load. Just as well, since I've been working 14 days straight now (worked all last weekend).
But the extra $$ would help. Had to take my car for the 30k mile warranty work-up... that was over $300.00... then they found my brakepads were wore out down to the metal (imagine that! on these hills and backroads that was no surprise) and needed replacing.. another 200 something $$. Add to that the bills for my recent labs and polypectomy and the next one coming up... I'm beginning to feel buried under a mountain of bills here. Even with health insurance, it still adds up, doesn't it?
I was all giddy a few mos. ago thinking I was making headway and whittling down some of that mountain of debt, and here we go AGAIN! :stone
It just never ends, does it?
So I'll just have to help out on weekends as often as I can for awhile.. several mos., anyway.
While we were taking the car for its overhaul, we met with my dd as it was up there where she lives. Took her out for lunch and she showed us her new little house she just rented. Yes, she and her dh have separated, although on friendly terms. They make better "friends" than marriage partners. They've had ongoing problems for sometime.. have separated before they ever married, but thought they could make it work. Marriage doesn't change things.
Anywaaaaaay..her little house is adorable. Tiny.. more like an efficiency apartment, but it is a house nonetheless. Kitchen/living room combined, and one bedroom and bath.
Looks just like a little "cabin" with a huge front porch the entire length of it. Hayfields all behind it, woods in the front.. off the road hidden from view. Only 3 years old, all nice and new and clean, came with built in appliances including microwave above the range, washer/dryer.
The setting is soooooo peaceful. Out in the country, nice and quiet.. a little haven of peace for the spirit and the soul.
Can't wait for spring and summer to go sit on her porch.. birdfeeders, flowerboxes, and rocking chairs.. might have to get her a porchswing.
Has a small yard for her dalmation, who is her very life.
So that was enjoyable. She really likes it, and it is just perfect for one person and a furbaby. Now if she could only find a decent paying job.
It's so hard to find good employment around here, it really sux. I'd hate to be a young person again these days. Her rent alone will eat up over half her small paycheck.
Well, guess I'll tackle some laundry and some cleaning today. Whoopie!
