(Have you ever thought you had something all planned, then have it fall apart?)
I have been working hard making plans for my summer and when I think everything is settled, all of a sudden it isn’t.
I have been looking for a new job to go along with my others. I have quit my morning job (they knew I was looking) after I have found a new morning job. I had figured out my hours, how much money I will be making, and how much time I would have off to get projects done this summer. It was all looking great.
I went on a camping vacation with my family and I was to start the new job on the Monday after returning. The night before I got a call from a different boss telling me they are closing their business with no warning. I am now losing about $400 a month. Then to find out that the new job I just got may not be steady work, but come in as needed.
I am not panicking because I really wanted more time in the summer to do my projects, though I do need to make sure I can pay my bills. Walking that fine line can be tricky.
So, I am going to go with the flow and hopefully if I start to struggle I can ask for more hours from another job that I still have. Sometimes there is a benefit working for more than one company. Like the saying says…. Don’t put all your eggs in one basket.
This is life? As in the movie Matrix… if life was all easy we would get bored. I will definitely say I am not bored and at times I just want to laugh at this situation. Stay tuned and see if I make it through the summer.
