So a lot has happened in the past few weeks. Uh. My grandmother passed away 2 weeks ago. So I got to go to a funeral for the 2nd time in my life. And see relatives I've never met before. And will probably never see again.
We got some new furniture and apparently now my grandmother's car is now mine. Yay. One of my dad's co-workers wants my dad to move into this spare house he owns on an acre of land.
It sounds great but we're still like "meeeehhh..."
My dad may have a job waiting for him in Austin, but we need to see if we're getting any money out of my grandmother's Will so we have money to actually move down there. :\
OH. I have L4D2 now. And if you want to play with me, and you're on my friends list on this site, then shoot me a message so I can add you on Steam!
So, now a bunch of stuff has to pass through HR, and once again I'm really nervous about it, even though nothing's changed in 2 years, but...you know. Anyway.. one last hurdle and then hopefully things will start to get better here.
In other things If you're a Minecraft fan, Amazon is selling this Creeper Poster for under $1, the only catch is that shipping is $3.99, but seriously. A post under five bucks ain't bad! There's alos some other posters that are under $10 with shipping so...YAY AMAZON.
If everything goes well and I get this new job, I'm going to buy this, THIS, and then go on a shopping spree in the RT store.
So currently at my work, my position as Part Time Kennel Attendant is being phased out. And in it its place there will be a new Full Time position.
The upside! It pays $15.44/hr compared to $9/hr. Benefits! More hours!
The downside. Working Sundays. oh....AND THE FACT THAT I HAD TO APPLY TO IT, INSTEAD OF JUST BEING PROMOTED.
Yeah. It was an open application. Meaning anyone meeting the requirements could apply. Which means my job is in jeopardy if my supervisor decides there's someone more qualified than me.
It's causing a lot of stress right now.
Mainly because I really need the money. I'm making $350 every 2 weeks, and it's not enough. I can't even get my car fixed because a mechanic is going to cost AT LEAST $100 and I need that for gas and bills and food. Also because if I don't get the job, I lose my current one because it isn't going to exist anymore! Next is that my supervisor told me she doesn't think I can handle 8 hours of cleaning on Sundays, WHICH IS FUNNY BECAUSE WHO CLEANED THE OLD SHELTER FOR 5-6 HOURS EVERY SUNDAY!? WITH. NO. HELP. (8 hour Sundays will be with 2 cleaners, and eventually a horde of volunteers) OH YEAH. I FUCKING DID.
And I had to wash every bowl of over 100 animals... BY HAND. And carry the pee and poop soaked blankets of over 30 dogs to the washing machine on the other side of the shelter...BY MYSELF. And clean poop out of the drains, because the pipes were so old they couldn't handle dog feces....BY HAND. Now we have a dishwasher that will clean bowls in less than 2 minutes. And carts to carry dirty laundry. And the pipes are goo enough to handle almost any substance being flushed down them.
InjuriesHere's a list of injuries I've suffered over the past week.
Slammed my eye into a headboard. While trying to get a dog inside, I stepped on a dog bowl and slammed my back into the latches on the door frame of the kennel. Last night I slipped on...absolutely nothing...attempted to do the splits---I cannot---and fell on hardwood flooring in my room. Bruising my knees and legs.
