Well I have a solution for my car. Albeit a temporary one, but a solution. So that is a great deal off my shoulders. I will have access to it when I need it and it will be safer. So I hope this is a start to the break I need to get my life back in better order.
I also made some contact with some former clients from my last job to see if they have any freelance work for me. It will be a pain with taxes, but that really is the least of my concerns at the moment. I am hoping for the best.
I had a good dinner tonight. I try to eat one really one good meal a week and tonight was it. I had steak and a baked potato with a Greek salad. I found a coupon online so it wasn't overly expensive and if I eat raman noodles at work for the rest of the week I will be good.
I did make up a most of the sales I lost the previous week over the weekend between Black Friday and Saturday. I was asked to work an extra shift this week so my outlook for the next paycheck seems promising. We also usually get a bonus between the week of Christmas and New Years. Last year that helped me stayed housed a few extra months. The sales are down this year, so it will be less, but if I can get my car fixed I will be grateful.
