Well… I’ve been nudged a couple of times, so I guess i ought to post something in this journal that’s sitting here paid for.
So, I’ve been working since January now, and that’s been interesting. Praise God! I kinda miss school– especially since I have barely touched a paintbrush or pencil since I left. I keep my sketchbook near, and basically decorate my cube with stuff I make to amuse myself.
The job really is going well though. I’ve had some frustrations, but haven’t given up.
Back in March, I went through a major illness that landed me in the hospital. They never figured out what was wrong– basically, I was in an incredible amount of pain, for no apparent reason. I’m doing much better now, though I still have occasional bouts of pain. Mentally, I’m doing fabulously. Even during the illness, I didn’t get depressed or anything. I’m really thankful for that. I have seemed to be on a very even keel for some time now. The down-side is that my meds have made me blow up like a balloon. This displeases me.
Financially, Matt and I are still… working on it. We are waiting to see if the company Matt has been working for since Feb will hire him on in a full time capacity. He’s inspecting fire extinguishers, which is a much more fulfilling job for him than the kitchen gig was, I think. At least, he seems to enjoy it more, and he gets to work side-by-side with one of our close friends. But so far, we are in limbo as to whether the boss-man will give him a proper wage.
For now, we are brown bagging it, and trying (trying) to stick to a budget. On paper, on purpose, right? *shudder*
