Week started with need for new tires....
What a week....Started with a blow out on interstate 5 last Saturday.....We were on our way in pouring rain up north and then wham! Anyhow had to get towed to the nearest place which was Firestone and had to get some new tires. Car is only 3 years old but it was time to replace them anyhow. Times a really tough right now since we are unemployed so I wasn't very happy with the sitch of an unexpected added expense but what can you do? The Firestone guy did not look like this in anyway but if we had we would of maybe negotiated a deal....LOL! We did however get one free tire though as they were running a special. I called my dealership buddy and he assured me it was a ok deal--even though he lost the sale to us....Nice chap he is.....

Been a long week.....Gearing up for the new year and all the craft fairs and such we will be dong come spring and summer for the jewelry biz....Been busy helping friends with a opening of a new venture....New storefront with painting and such....Got to decorate and shop for a lobby waiting area and that was fun.. Also had a few job interviews and people calling about jobs I applied for and I hate to say but I have not been interested in ANY of the jobs. Is it weird to say I am being picky...very picky! I rather hold out or suffer then go to a job just to get one or just make money. Times have changed and I want to be happy. Hubster and I have decided that we can totally be ok and happy without going back to corporate America. If we lost everything--our home etc.... as long as we have each other and the dogs we are ok......as we know we will survive....Living within our means has been ok.... Only thing that worries me these days is getting some sort of health insurance.....That maybe the only reason I have to go back to a corp job....YUCK!

Well time to go job search online....Gotta pay off them tires! damm how I hate how it eats up my fun Internet time! Oh well....Maybe that dream job is right around the corner....one can only hope and pray....

It sounds like ya'll are definitely making the best of a bad situation. I'm with you, as long as I have my family and my dogs, I'm in good shape. Keep the positive attitude going!!!

Can someone please explain to me the hot guy carrying two tires meme? I know it started with the Herb Ritts photograph but who just wanders around carrying two tires for no reason?

Expenses have a way of coming up out of the blue. I can so relate to you, since I had a sick cat. That wasn't cheap!

Glad to hear that you guys are okay, the blowout situation could have been a lot worse than what it was.

I wonder what your doing that I'm not. My phone isn't ringing but I'm applying like crazy. Hopefully, something will come together for both of us soon. I'm not that picky, just as long as the money is there. That's what I'm working for. Happiness would be a nice perk but as long as I'm doing something I enjoy I can be happy.

Best of luck and hang in there!

I know how you feel. I didn't want to take another job in corporate America either so I decided to go to real estate school and become an agent. Flexible hours, touring homes, and helping people's dreams come true - what's not to love? Good luck to you, my friend!
