In My World

I am under a lot of stress.

I am still working on 2nd shift in another time zone. I'm still not making any money. I work a lot of overtime at the beginning of the week and get sent home early towards the end of the week. I am working a lot just to end up with a short check.

I was cheated by the scrap yard. We sold scrap 700lbs of scrap metal a week ago Saturday and was paid with a bad check. Not knowing it was bad, I used my debit card all weekend. On Monday I was overdrawn. On Friday I got a letter from my bank telling me not to use my account because the check was bad. Thanks a whole hell of a lot, WellsFargo. I have a house phone, a cell phone, and two email addresses. Snail mail is NOT the best was to communicate with me. The scrap metal guy has done nothing but lie to me. I am trying to get the money but it is a slow process because I have to give him the opportunity to pay up before I can take any kind of action. When a bad check is written it is a civil matter UNLESS I can prove he knowingly wrote me a bad check and then it is a criminal matter. Right now I don't have any proof. But I am making it my mission in life to make his existence hell on earth and I am doing my damnedest to ensure he goes to jail. I hope when he gets out he has 'Bubba's Bitch' tattooed across his forehead.

I am trying to deal with all my bills to keep from being even more overdrawn. I had to stop payment on Hughesnet this morning and there is a possibility they will cut off my Internet service. I have to go pay my insurance today and because I am constantly driving all over the place, I am always needing gas money. I have no money and Kevin is about broke from trying to keep me out of the hole. Since I am supposed to be sleeping during the day, all of this is especially hard to deal with.

My friend is getting married on the Summer Solstice, which is great, but I probably won't be able to go to her wedding b/c I have to work that night and should be sleeping instead of going to the courthouse. I can't give her a present either.

I really, really, really want to shut myself in my sewing room and stitch. I can't because I have too much else to deal with. My sewing machine is dusty and I think that's just plain sad.

I am trying to sell the puppies. I wanted to make them service dogs, but I REALLY need money. So far the selling hasn't happened because Craigslist wouldn't give me a verification code, and WTF? I have never needed a code before.

I'm not even talking about my blood sugar. It's bad.

I have an interview on the 28th. That was the earliest I could get. Kevin has also been job hunting and he isn't getting any calls back. We are really tired of barely scrapping by.

I have four items to list in my Etsy shop and I just don't have the time to manage the shop. I haven't even looked at zazzle in over a week. I got one item listed this morning and that was a flat out miracle.

I have no idea when my next post will be. I'll be back whenever I get back.

Oh my sweet darlin', I do hope things get better. I will light a candle for you tonight and keep you in my prayers. If I had the extra cash I would buy up all your etsy items. May the money owed you and the blessing of new jobs come your way. So mote it be.

This is horrible for you! I dislike people who screw other people over! If I had the extra money I would buy up your etsy shop, too! for now, I will also light a candle, one that you will be blessed with the money owed you. And one that the scrap guy will get what he has coming to him.
Blessed Be!
