I hate this

I am so sick of being broke. I work three jobs and still there is never enough. So I told Grumpy last night that I am going to see if I can have a few shifts at the German Restaurant - where I worked for 6 years before the owners kids took it over. That is another story in its self and not for this blog. Anyway I know I can't get to many more shifts at the Italian restaurant so I figured if I can get a couple of shifts there I could get some extra money. I am seriously starting to panic with the Euro going up that we wont have enough money for our bills and our trip. House taxes are coming up in addition to our normal bills as are car taxes and so forth and I can't keep money in the savings account. I figured working a couple shifts at the German place will give us like $300+ a month that is if they take me back. I mean it would be in their best interest from what I can see since I used to do everything there - cooking, bar tending and waiting tables so they can utilize my skills where ever they need too. But then there is the IF factor I am supposed to go over the one of the kids houses Saturday for Craft Club so I figured I go by earlier and see what my chances are. To bad I got to fat for my Dirndl but I guess I cross that bridge when I get to it.

In the mean time I am still waiting to find out if I am officially done with school. I filled out the application for my degree 2 weeks ago but haven't heard anything back - nothing saying I need some other classes nor if I am done. I am kind of holding off on applying for jobs until I am sure I am done.
I did ask my doctor if he has heard anymore about the deal with the hospital. I can't remember if I blogged about this - Couple of weeks ago my doc approached me asking if I had accepted a position yet - I told him no - and he told me that one of the local hospitals is trying to go into research but hasn't had much luck so they approached him asking if he would oversee if - lending them his name. He told them he would consider it but they would need a coordinator that knows the business and he wants me to do it. He said he wants the deal to include me with a substantial pay raise and better benefits. So I hadn't heard anything which is way I asked him this week. He said he'd put pressure on them to come to a conclusion and mentioned again that the success of the deal would lie with me coming on board. At this point all of this will come down to the numbers I'd love to be a monitor but if the hospital deal is better I will do that. I mean I can always be a monitor later. Of course if they drag their feet - I can't afford to wait as soon as I have my diploma my resume goes out to all the research organizations I can think off.

I hope this works out for you. There's nothing outside of sickness that will grind you down like always worrying about money.

We've wanted to take another trip to Ireland for the past couple of years, and now it looks like we made a mistake by waiting for the dollar to come back up vs the Euro.

Worrying about money sucks. It's so emotionally draining, I think.

I hope things work out with the German restaurant, and with the coordinator job too. That sounds very interesting!

angel said...

the hospital job sounds perfect- i'll cross my fingers for you!

Dino aka Katy said...

Jin - yeah I know you understand

Bubs - maybe the dollar will get stronger at least thats what I am hoping for

Lesley - haven't heard from the restauant its been 4 days I guess that means no
