times are tough
Wednesday. 4.1.09 2:50 pm
I really have no specifics to go along with the title. It's just stating a fact. With the way the economy is, times are just tough. And here's a fact that the older people will understand and a warning to the younger ones as of yet unexperienced:

The more money you make, the less you have to spend freely. As you get older, you accumulate more money. But with that money comes more bills and more responsibility to handle that money properly. It's not fun being broke. And everyone that has a job and has bills knows exactly how it feels to see the money come into your bank account just to send it off so you can keep living the way you do.

Blah.

Anywho, tomorrow is the last day for my site supervisor. I don't like the person they're promoting, but I don't want the responsibility that comes with that title so I guess I can't say too much into who go the position. I do still wish they had promoted the other guy who applied for the position. I think he'd be a better supervisor and not just because I get along with him better. I feel as if he'd just be more of a fit for the role.

I really don't know why I'm blogging. I actually have nothing to say. I guess I'll write when I do have something to talk about.

warning: rant ahead
Monday. 3.30.09 1:44 pm
I know I said I was going to try and avoid rants, but alas, they are not always avoidable. I'll do my best to at least keep it short.

{First, a quick insert} Mondays usually suck. Today wasn't any different. Probably since I was only working on about 3 hours of sleep. But it seemed to be a weird day for everyone and it all had to do with it being the end of a weekend and the start of a new week. Blah. {End of quick insert}

Now, the real reason behind the rant. When my boyfriend's mom gets home from work every day, she [usually] comes home to a clean kitchen/living room. She'll sit down to rest for a bit, watch some TV, possibly get on the computer or go out for a walk. All in all a fairly restful end of the day.

My boyfriend gets home from work and either plays on his PS3, watches a little TV or comes in to cuddle/play on the comp/sleep. Again, a fairly restful end to the day.

I, on the other hand, come home from work and have to clean the house. I love how most of the mess ... has absolutely nothing to do with me. I keep my small areas of the house clean. Or at least in an organized mess. Mostly, I'm in the bedroom. I venture into the kitchen and use maybe a plate or glass, which I clean after I'm finished with it.

I've made it now so that I'm only cleaning the house 3 days of the week. I have my boyfriend do it on his two days off and I don't touch anything on weekends; leaving it up to the other two to decide who cleans what. I feel I deserve to enjoy my two days off after working the whole week and coming home to clean 3 out of the 5 days.

Urgh, this turned out longer than it should have been. Oh well. I'll end it here before it keeps going.

and so it begins ... again

Sunday. The start of the week. At least for me. This is the day where everything has to fall back into a routine; I need to go to bed fairly early so as to get enough sleep to get me through Monday's early morning shift.

Monday is laundry day. Something that occurs every Monday with, I think, only one exception. I do the dishes while waiting for my clothes to finish being cleaned. And I usually go to bed early due to a lack of sleep I got on Sunday.

Tuesday. A new episode of Chuck and Heroes is available online. That's about the only 'excitement' that happens on Tuesdays. That and dishes.

Wednesday. It varies between boring and really boring. Although I've usually got my computer and a book, both can still become really boring rather quickly. Dishes only passes so much time by before there aren't any more dirty that need washing.

Thursday. The first day of change. Jacob's first day off, I usually don't go to bed until around 7 or 8 rather than 5 or 6. {Sunday, Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday I go to bed earlier because I know I'll be awake at 11:30 when he gets home from work. I don't always go back to sleep once he's home so to prevent from getting no sleep, I just go to bed earlier.} This is also the day of week we have unintentionally dedicated to the three of us going out to dinner. Probably because it's the only day of week when all three of us are home and available to do anything.

Friday. The plans vary depending on monitary situations.

Saturday. My day to either be very lazy or fairly busy. It tends to lean more towards lazy. I do try to make it a habit, though, to bring Jacob and his coworker, Tim, dinner every Saturday. Saturday is the only day when Tim works so I try to go up there to say hi every week. It doesn't always happen.

And of course that brings us back to today when the routine starts all over again.

Such a wonderful life. Blah.

excited, yay!

Here's the update on my car: the payments have been fixed. The best news is that I don't have to make another payment until June. And that particular payment is about $110 less than my normal payment. You know what that means, right?

I've been reimbursed for the money I wrongly payed! Woot!

I'm excited. I can finally save up money. Over the next two months, I don't have to put any money towards my car. Just the regular bills: insurance, cell phone, blockbuster, etc.

I'm taking my boyfriend and his mom out for dinner tonight. I've been wanting to do that for some time now, but with my outrageous car payments, I haven't had the extra money to really do anything with. Now I do.

I'm not going to go crazy with it. I am going to save up, but I will be spending some of it. I need clothes and shoes. Nothing expensive, just a few outfits and a couple pairs of shoes from Payless.

It's probably the best news I've received in a while.

The only downer? I find out tonight whether or not I have to attend jury duty tomorrow. Blah.

I guess I'll add to the updates {edit}
Saturday. 3.21.09 8:40 pm
This might be a little long; it's been a while since I've posted anyway and a few things have happened during the down time that I'd like to write about.

First off, I finally figured out why my car payments were freakishly high and it wasn't because I had made one late payment, as I had previously thought was the issue {I had to start paying $497.18/month for a little Nissan Versa; outrageous even if it was because of a late payment, considering my regular payment is only $338.55.}

I called them up and questioned it. It turns out that because I didn't provide my finance company proof of my own car insurance, they automatically started charging me for car insurance, without notifying me, bumping my monthly payments up more than $150 extra per month.

In finding this out, I found out exactly what I had to do to get it fixed and got the numbers necessary to fix it. I then called my insurance company, told them what was going on, gave them the number to fax over my information and I made sure to have them fax proof I had had my insurance with them since before I even purchased my vehicle. The guy from my finance company told me it would take about a week to go through so I'll be calling them on Tuesday to find out if everything went through. I'll also be calling my lawyer to find out how to get the money reimbursed.

I'll be updating when that happens.

Anywho, yesterday was mine and Jacob's one year anniversary. We saw Knowing, went the The Melting Pot for dinner and saw I Love You, Man afterwards. Knowing was okay. Nothing totally spectacular, but it wasn't too bad. I Love You, Man was funny. I'd have to say that the whole audience was laughing for more than half the movie. I'd recommend seeing it. We didn't make a big deal of the day, but it was a very nice day out for the two of us.

That's about all I've got for now. If I don't post sooner, then expect an entry sometime around Tuesday-ish.

{EDIT} I burned my tongue really badly a couple days ago ... it hurts to the point where food isn't even remotly appealing anymore. You can also visibly see the two white bumps on the edge of my tongue. It sucks that they're so close to my teeth. Ugh.
