No rest for the weary

Monday, Tuesday and today were mandatory 730AM – 7PM work days. VERY LONG, but the overtime will be nice, especially as I’ve opted to have it be extra vacation time as opposed to extra monies. Because my goal in life is to spend as little time working as possible. More vacation will help me to actualize that goal.

It’s been a hard week for me and Gabey though, what with the lack of home time. And I have a 630AM flight to Philadelphia Friday morning for MOLLY’S WEDDING(!!!!) so it’s sort of a bad week to be at work all the time, since I’m not gonna see my baby for three days.

I am however QUITE excited for Mol’s wedding. Her bachelorette party weekend marked the best time I’ve had with friends, possibly in years, but definitely in months. I don’t have a hotel room. I’m just hoping to skate by on my popularity I guess. I’ve warned a couple of people that I may be spooning them this weekend, and that I’ll pay them for their time. Ahem. Kathy. Sara. Mira. Mira and I have similarish flights, so we’re carpooling to the airport, which is both eco-friendly and cost-effective.

I haven’t had much luck insofar as finding myself an apartment, but I haven’t been trying too hard just yet. I can’t really afford an apartment if K doesn’t give me money, and he doesn’t reliably do that (not that he NEVER does, but it's very spotty), so I’m reluctant to get into an untenable financial situation without some guarantee of supplemental funds (like a child support case? for instance?).


  1. jenny. reading about K is endlessly frustrating.

  2. "hoping to skate by on my popularity "- You crack me up :)

    I used to work 7pm to 7am shifts three days a week, and I hated it! I feel for you. Hope you have a fabulous time at the wedding!

  3. Ah, the life of a single mother. I was Gabey -- the child of a single mom and would not have it any other way. Just get every last dime.
