I’ve been incredibly busy. And I love it!
I went two whole days without chocolate! I guess it helped that I pretty much fell asleep half way through dinner so I wasn’t awake to crave anything sweet afterwards. I even went one whole day without turning on my computer. I’m so used to being on it all day! Goodbye Facebook time suck!
WINNING THE JOB LOTTERY
I had taken a break from using Craigslist because I was tired of no responses and dead ends. October 8th was the day I returned to Craigslist and won the job lottery. I applied for over 10 jobs that day and now I’ve got myself two jobs, that are awesome. Plus, I have another interview lined up for Saturday! This one is at the trampoline park that’s opening up in my area in the next few months. It would be awesome to work at a trampoline park! Even if I don’t get hired there, I’m definitely planning on checking it out once they open!
If I have 3 part time jobs, I’ll definitely have no issues with keeping busy while my husband is on deployment!
NAVY FEDERAL CREDIT UNION IS AWESOME
My husband and I bank with Navy Federal and they recently revamped their website. They now categorize each of our purchases and they create this nifty spending chart.
The multiple sub-categories (3 different Bills & Utilities, 3 different Entertainment, etc.) are kind of annoying but I can edit/delete the categories and even change the category each separate transaction is assigned. This will make budgeting and tracking my purchases much easier, such a great time saver too! I have been using a spreadsheet and at the end of the month, I would log into the old NFCU format and separately enter each transaction for the month into the designated category within my spreadsheet. This is awesome!
THRIFT STORE LOVE
I went to a thrift store for the first time in several years after a recommendation from a boss. I needed a pair of khakis for the cleaning job and I found a pair that fit my short height perfectly, no hemming needed! That’s like winning the lottery, it’s only happened once before! I also picked up 3 shirts, spent $14 for all four items (the pants were $4.99, shirts about $3 each). I can’t wait to go back! I’ll probably only go to thrift stores that have a fitting room because I hate buying clothes that I don’t know how they’ll fit.
This just seemed fitting for this post. 🙂
Happy Monday, folks!
