As I sit here at work, bored now, finally thought to update. Works been okay. Up untill a day or 2 ago when I found out the didn’t put in my time off for my upcoming ww2 reenactment. It’s ago fairly large one and costed me $60 for registration and I’m only going to be able to go down for ago day and to add insult to injury I start a 9 day stretch of our midnight to 8 am shift. 9 days, no overtime. Due to the setup of our pay/ work week. It’s a rotating schedule where all of us work a 9 day rotation so maybe every 2 or 3 months we’lll have to work this st reach and I am NOT looking forward to it.
Being winter work has slowed down a lot and I work on a commission based pay so the last like 3 or 4 checks have sucked. Also I got health insurance. Forced to get I should say. (Thanks obama) so that cut even deeper into my already small checks. Really been thinking hard of other ways to make money. Ebay is so hit and miss and the room it takes me to effectively organize the stuff I’m selling takes up too much room. But most hobs aren’t a work whenever you want because the fabulous company I work for is a 24/7 operation and my work times are always rotating. Nor.al is 4 to midnight for me bit I’ve been 10 to 6 pm noon to 8pm 2 to 10 pm had a few 8am to 4pm shifts and my days off are random. Sometimes they’re consecutive or broke up. I toyed with the idea of Uber but I don’t have the “correct” vehicle for them. Almost wish I could buy an old cop car. (No worry of messes etc) but other than that no clue what I could do to supplement our income without killing myself (again) cause I can only work 55 plus hrs a week so long before I burn out. I’ve done it at least 2 seperate times.
I’m having a love/ hate relationship with these shifts I’m working. I like the 4 to mid shifts because I can get stuff done during the day and what not but I also like the noon to 8pm shifts because then I get home and get to spend a few hrs with sierra. But then I can easily work on stuff around the house. I’m about halfway done installing carpet in my gun room but slightly upset the installation is going the way it’s going. Probably going to have waves in the carpet even though I bought a carpet kicker which is what professionals use. It’s frustrating but I’m just going to get over it so we can get it down and get my stuff moved and organized in my gun room and out of Sierra’s way. I have more to post but I don’t want to use and nymph of my data right now.
