I found bananas for .19 each and naval oranges for .33 each. I bought a quite a few. I have a sweet tooth and cakes are just out of my price range at the moment. Seriously, I saw a small cake in the grocery store the other day for $10 and it was tiny. I can't spend money on things like that, so I have been using fruit to satisfy my craving for sweets. In the past I use yogurt. But that is another thing that is out of my price range. While they are only about a dollar, but the containers have gotten so small of late that it just isn't worth spending the money on.
I had a pretty good sales day again yesterday. That made me happy. Although my paycheck in two days is not even $300 for two weeks. Who can possibly live on that? A tank of gas is $45. That was two weeks ago and the prices have gone up since then. My membership to Costco is still good until August so I can get gas from there and save a couple of dollars on a full tank. The one nice thing about the weather being warmer is that you can let the gas tank go almost all the way down. In the winter that is a big problem.
I am having allergy issues at the moment. I get really bad ear aches. My sinuses don't drain really so it goes into my ears. They then become very painful. I did splurge with what little money I have left on a generic over the counter allergy medication, but it isn't working as well as my regular prescription meds. But they are way out of my price range at the moment.
I still have not heard back from any of the applications I filled out last week. I sent out more resumes today. Jobs that I am wildly over-qualified for. From what I understand companies don't really like hiring people who are over-qualified because they believe that as soon as the job market gets better you will leave for a better job and they have wasted the costs and time for the training that they gave you. But, the jobs at my past level are just not out there. I am more than happy to sign something saying I would stay for two years. But, I guess they are not just willing to give me a shot.
This Sunday is Easter and I am looking forward to sunrise services. I just love Easter Service. It is by far the best service of the year. While I am getting closer and closer to the day of homelessness, the service will be very uplifting. I have to keep telling myself that God is trying to teach me something. Although I don't see too much that I could have done differently. But, maybe this will make me more sympathetic to others and something very profound will come of this experience.
I just hope that is not just wishful thinking. But, at least I am trying to stay positive.
Have a good day.
