Yesterday was a long, long day. I had two midnight-lasting babysitting jobs throughout the week, as well as a 10 pm one (that one was my fault, I had a work meeting that went until 8 pm and then I ended up visiting some friends that live nearby…) Basically, not much sleep had been had this week.
I worked late Friday night as well, something that was not communicated and by 6pm I was just in a bad mood, ready to put my feet up for multiple hours and just zone out.
As I walked out the door, I was handed my bonus, and magically my spirits rose. The bonus coupled with the money I’ve been saving through babysitting (minus what I had to use for more car repairs last week, that is), I only have about $1200 left to pay off my car. Hopefully, if I keep putting in 60+ hour weeks and exhausting myself my car will be paid off by June at the absolute latest! This is a huge, huge deal to me —a car (used, of course, paid off within 14 months? If I can do it, I will be proud of myself).
So to celebrate?
I sat down with a couple of Capri Suns and a 49 cent large pizza from Papa John’s- enough to feed me for three meals!
Sometimes my life is just so exciting.
