Happy hump day!

So, I realized this morning that if I am going to have a blog, I need to write in it! =) The past week has been a little stressful. C has been working so hard to try and find a job. He has had 3 interviews this week, all of which went well. The problem you may ask? They don't pay very well at all! I know I know, a job is a job! Yes, I am happy that he WILL have a job. We are waiting to hear from one of the employers that pays the most. Hopefully we will hear something by Friday. Keep your fingers crossed!

I worked Thursday through Sunday this past week. 46 hours in 4 days! Needless to say, I slept most of the day away Monday =) Yesterday C and I went to the store. We are trying so hard to spend as little money as possible right now. We made it out of Safeway with a full cart of groceries for $77, so I thought that was pretty good! =) It was for us anyway, we like to eat!

The best thing that has happened this week? I got paid today! My check was very nice, considering it had 93 hours on it! =) I don't get paid until the 20th again, so we will have to watch every penny! C did apply for unemployment back in Indiana. It has been approved, but there is a waiting period until you receive your first check. Hopefully we will get that soon!

I will try to keep this up to date! I work for the next 3 days though, 12 hours each so I won't be doing much except sleeping and working!
