Jonathan is so good to me. We are really low on cash, and the new boss requires head to toe black. Now I oddly enough had a ton of skirts but no black pants. Nor did I have any black shoes that don't have heels. I decided heels were not going to work for this, so I needed some new shoes and at least one pair of black pants and a (non whoreish) black shirt to get me started. I had enough for the pants and the shirt but not the shoes I wanted. Jonathan bought them for me. My feet and I are thanking him!

Also, what kind of fucked up goth am I, that I don't own black pants? I own black shirts, but they are less than decent in anything other than club settings, or they are short sleeved. The new maul I will be working in is a little more strict about the tattoo policy. I don't know about the piercing, but I'll change the nosering to something less obvious. The stretched ears are staying though. It has taken me too long to get them here to take them out now, and I still have two sizes to go. If they bitch, then oh well. M can find someone else to take the position. I am not taking anything out. So there :P

Looking forward to NOMS tomorrow.

I start my new job next week. She didn't call back for weeks, but I knew that she would call if she needed me. She called at some point and I missed it because my phone was buried in my purse and I didn't hear it (ringer volume has been turned up). I called her back this evening and left a message. When I told her I could start next week, she was practically peeing herself in joy.

It's maul work, but I think it will be less odd than the last maul work. I am pretty sure I won't end up with odd hours I can't work, and there won't be the odd backstabby gossiping that I had at the last place. I liked that job, but it had become a bit drama fueled. Since there will only be, like, 3 of us, I am pretty sure I will pretty much be left to myself. I am just happy to be getting out of the house and getting paid for doing so. If I'm lucky, there may be intertubes there!!!

I am so excited...

I may have a new part time job lined up.

I dare not say more until I know more tomorrow.

[ profile] ohno_jonathan_o got the new nifty Job that I knew he was going to get! WOOOOOOOT!

I hope he likes it. I really pressed for him to get this job, and I will feel like shit if he hates it. Either way, right now, it is a good day!

Work royally sucked last night. One particular customer and a co-worker made it extremely difficult for me to justify continuing to work there. I will, but only because I know that I am more appreciated than the other co-worker, even though she has been there much longer and is a family friend of the owner.

Jonathan has my car today (technically he doesn't, the mechanic does). This is in the hopes that we can get my a/c fixed. I have absolutely no idea how I did summer last year while being pregnant, without having a running air conditioner. I really hope that I just need coolant or a belt or something and not a compressor. If it is compressor, I will not have a working a/c in this car.

I am currently waiting for FedEx to drop off a telescope that I ordered. I am scared to not be here for delivery, should we have a repeat of the sofa over the 4 1/2 foot wall incident. The sofa survived, I don't think the telescope would.

Jonathan is entirely too good to me. He was up almost all night with Little Human, who for some reason was very unhappy. I feel bad. I love Jonathan though. I think he feels underappreciated. I wish that I was a better person.

Do you know how nice it is to get paid decent money to do almost nothing?

I have a fully operational car $530 later. *sigh*
At least I do not need to worry about getting to work. Which I think I am doing at 2 on Thursday, but I am not completely sure. I guess I should call Louann back! {EDIT} 4 on Thursday.

I also got a phone call while I was out getting my car, from my very best friend from High School. I haven't talked to him in about 6 years. He has a cell so the caller ID just said Alabama. Usually those calls don't leave messages, but this one did, and it was so odd to hear his voice after so long. We spent about 2 1/2 hours on the phone. It was great. I wonder if I can get him to come visit? I know mom would love to see him, and I think he and Jonathan would get along well.

All in all, it was a good day.
I was told on Saturday by a tow truck driver that my mechanic had gone out of business. Luckily Jonathan decided to stop by and see if there was anything there. Family emergency. They will be back on Wednesday. I really didn't want to have to hunt down a new mechanic. I trust these guys and they don't try to fuck me over when I go to them. Now I hope that they can get me set back up in my lifetime!

This is a bad week for this to happen. I really didn't want to have this lovely added stress when I am going to start a new job. I just didn't need this.
Does anyone know if Coronado Center has a rule against visible tattoos for people employed there? [ profile] elegantdreams isn't sure, and I can't find anything.
And I am nervous. I think I was accidentally rude to my new boss, but it is because I am nervous... and hungry...

That is all.
I accidentally got a job today. I am not sure how I did this. I was talking to [ profile] elegantdreams about her work, and she texted her boss. They texted back and forth for about 10 mins, and I was then informed that I should call her boss on Sunday to figure out my schedule. So, not only did I accidentally get a job, but I am now working for someone whom I have never met. It's only a little bit of work in the evenings and possibly on Fridays and Saturdays (4 hr. shifts, 2-3 days a week). I need to make it fit around Jonathan's schedule, so that I don't have to find daycare/babysitter. I am kind of excited (and freaked out). It has been so long since I worked anywhere but *that* place, and it's just odd. Oh well.

So yeah...

I am absolutely appalled. The baby has started to teethe. I kept trying to figure out today what was wrong with him, and finally realized that he has two teeth coming in on top. Yes, I know, it is about 2 months too early. This kid is freakin me out. I love him enough to bear it!

My job interview went really well. I need to drop off some flyers I did for Euphoria several years ago (they want to see my skillz). I am also seriously sucking up and making a mock-up print ad for them. I dunno. Some days I would love to work a few days a week and others I can't bear the thought of leaving Darby. *sigh*

I have a job interview on Thursday. Nervous and excited. This is my first real job interview in 8 years (the thing for the possible bank job was more of a cluster fuck). Wish me luck!

Oh, and on another note, finished staining the garden bench. Time to refinish dining room chairs next!

I just applied for a part-time position at Self Serve Toys...

Who woulda thunk that was possible 3 years ago?


Jul. 5th, 2007 06:21 pm
I turned in my resignation today. I'm not sure they care, and I don't care that they don't care. I need to do this for my sanity and my health. So, Why am I so frightened?

I do have diabetes, which my midwife thinks will go away, but I don't get to see my midwife anymore. I have to see a doctor, because of the complications associated with the diabetes. It just bugs me, because I really like my midwife, and now I have to start all over. The only good thing is that I only have 9 weeks left, so I won't have to deal with the new person for too long.

In other news, I am going to quit my job. I am putting in my resignation on Thursday, and my last day of work is going to be July 14. I know it's not 2 weeks, but in the employee manual, they only ask for one week, and at this point I hate it there so much that I can't wait to get away. I have been informed that I am not allowed to sit down under any circumstances. That is not a possbility at this point. I am 7 months pregnant, and I need to sit down during the day.
I am absolutely terrified to quit, but I just can't stay. I talked to them about going down to part-time until the baby gets here, and I was told that I could do that, but I would lose all of my accumulated vacation and sick days (not to mention the benefits that are useless to me), even if I came back full time after the baby came. I would have to start over. I have been there 8 years. I have been there longer than any other current employee (including the 2 that were promoted above me). This is how they reward you for sticking around.

Also, my fridge has decided it doesn't like to be cold anymore. I thought I had fixed it, but apparently not. The freezer side stays cold enough to keep the normal fridge stuff cold, but not to freeze anything, and the normal fridge side does not stay cold anymore. I will have someone out to look at it. It never ends. Got my brakes fixed Saturday and was informed (and shown) that all four of my fuel injectors are leaking. I knew something was leaking, but... *sigh*

So why does all of this have to be such a pain in the ass? I have insurance through work, which happily does NOT cover prenatal care. When my boss signed us up for this, she did not realize it. Our insurance broker knew I wanted to get pregnant in the near future, but didn't realize that to get the maternity rider for the policy I am on, I would have to be on it for 1 year before conception and it would cost around $6,000/yr. We have only had this insurance since August, so even if I had been on it from the beginning, it wouldn't cover now.

SO, I went down to the handy dandy Human Services Dept. for Medicaide. First, I have to see a doctor to bring proof that I am pregnant (which, Thank God, Planned Parenthood does for $10). Even after that, though, I will have to wait between 35-45 days to get approved. I still haven't had the first appt where they do the exam and all of that crap. Without insurance, I can't afford it. I don't know what I am going to do at this point!!!

I know I need to go to the doctor, but how am I supposed to when I don't have any coverage? I don't know what to do, and am worried that I may not be able to have this baby after all.

{EDIT: I got some really great advice that has made me a LOT less stressed. thank you [ profile] eclypsia}
My mom's birthday is next week (the 20th to be exact), and she has decided that she wants a box turtle for her B-day. I have no idea why, but tomorrow we go on a turtle quest. And we get to see Nikki!!! Much YAY-ness.
I bought my first Flogging Molly cd yesterday. I am very much enjoying it.
I have so much shit to mail out for ~M~ this week that it's not even funny.
I am tired.

I guess my bitching finally paid off, either that or Sean realized that if I left he would be totally fucked. I got a raise. I figured either that would happen, or I'd get fired. YAY! I am still looking, but I feel a bit vindicated.

Posted my resume on Bought a new interview outfit. Cried myself silly at work.
I really hate it there. REALLY. You know, it's not even the owners, it's the floor manager that is making me fucking nuts. I love him (he's my best friend), but if I don't leave there soon, I don't think our friendship will survive. I feel like he is backing me into the same wall as he backed ~N~ into, and that he's right, I can't afford to quit, but it would still make me feel a helluva lot better if I did.

Anyway, Love you guys!
