Job Search

Job Search (Photo credit: Tax Credits)

Things have been a bit crazy lately. There’s been so much going on, and right now the internet at home is sketchy at best so I can only get online when I’m at work, thus I haven’t been able to write the way I’d like, but I have been keeping up with my Art/Smash Journal. I was applying for jobs and I finally got one. I start my new job this Monday. I’m excited about it but I’m also a bit nervous.

Mr. Rockstar’s job =’s overworked and underpaid. He’s been looking into going back on the road, which he hates. Although he loves the truck driving part (and he’s a natural) he hates being away from home, especially for weeks at time. He hated it when he was single and now that we’re married he knows that he would hate it even more. SOOOO, I decided that if I could find a job that paid decently then he would have more of a choice in regard to what jobs he was looking at and what job he eventually decided on. I don’t want him back on the road, but I know him and he’s one of the few good men out there: to him it is his responsibility to take care of us, to provide for us, and he takes that seriously. Unfortunately, that means he tends to want to shoulder all of the responsibility on his own shoulders, and that is a heavy burden if you try to carry it all by yourself. I’ve been trying to get him to understand that we’re in this together. We are a team, partners, and that means that he is not alone in this. He isn’t used to this. Hell, I’m not used to this. But we’re figuring things out.

So I took a job that I thought I’d be good at, that I think I’ll actually enjoy, and that should pay decently (along with benefits in 90 days). He’s not so sure he wants  me to take the job but he’s extremely supportive about it. He would prefer that if he does get a job on the road that I go with him, which isn’t feasible until he’s been on the job for at least 90 days anyway. By the time he finds a good job that won’t keep him on the road and will pay decently, as well as won’t take him up North, and the 90 days are up I could have earned quite a bit of money that will help us catch up on things. (Weddings, things that need to be fixed in the house, cars and regular bills are all expensive.)

On a side note, the scrapbooks I’m making for Christmas presents might be delivered just a tad late. I need to have more pictures developed and get a few more scrapbook goodies.  By the way, I absolutely love Michael’s. I would love to get gift certificates for Michael’s, as well as Books-a-million, Lerner’s of NY, Belk, Ruby Tuesday’s, Starbucks, JC Penney’s, Wal-Mart, and lots of other places…I’m versatile.
