So Thankful…

       ****Wanted to post this one Wednesday but due to technical difficulties, decided to hold off and post it today. I’m also posting this from my iPhone so I do apologize if the paragraphs look choppy. Happy Friday Yinz Guys, and I hope you have a great weekend****

When I say the past 12 hours have been crazy…it’s been crazy. I wanted to spend yesterday (Tuesday) planning out my next blog post and I also planned on making a list on everything I needed to get this weekend as well as plan out what I was going to wear for my girlfriend’s wedding on saturday. But first I needed to call my auto loan company about getting back up to date with my car loan payments…that’s when everything went to shits lol.

I had mentioned in an earlier post, that back in March I quit my job and had no real backup plan. I had no money saved up, I was already one month behind on my car note and I had no new job lined up. All I knew at the time, was that I had to get out from that job quick, fast and in a hurry. Was it the best plan…HELL NO. Am I happy…HELL YES. But last night was just another reminder of what happens when you don’t plan ahead. I’m sure if I would have just waited till I found a new job before leaving, saving money and paying my car note on time while I was still working…I wouldn’t have to call about scheduling payments to get my auto loan up to date now…but I didn’t…so this is where I am at the current moment.

I called last night (Tuesday), planned out the dates and payments that I would make on said dates and everything was ready to go. I like to plan out what I need to say or what I need done before I call about important things or things dealing with money. So when I called I didn’t expect to hear that I needed to make a payment before the 21st or it goes to some scary sounding department…I can’t remember the name. But I do remember her mentioning something about how they’ll be calling and putting me on some list and it affecting my credit score. Now that could have just been a scare tactic…but I wasn’t about to find out lol. So I set up for a payment for this Friday (Today). I’ve been here almost 3 months and this upcoming paycheck was suppose to be my first check I didn’t have to spend more than half of it on my damn Jeep.

I don’t know why, but since my 1st day on my new job…it was like my Jeep knew I had steady income coming in again… so it decided to have all types of problems plus it was due for inspection…thanks Pennsylvania. First it was a bubble in my tire, then a hose burst, then a fan broke, I had to replace my passenger side back lights and the inspection. I spent almost $2,000 the 1st month and a half at my new job…so my bank account is now shot. But…there is a silver lining to this all.

This morning (Wednesday) I woke up late, I burned the back of my thigh getting in my hot ass shower, my eyebrows came out horribly and now I’m broke before I even got paid. But as I sat at my vanity trying to work with my now tacky eyebrow gel(thanks summer heat)and have them look less Groucho Marx and more reasonable to say the least, I sat there and I started to think about how lucky I am. I may currently be broke, but I have a job that allows me to keep making money, which means thankfully by the end of September I’ll be caught back up on all my bills. Also I don’t hate my job, I enjoy the people I work with, I get off at 5pm and I have weekends off. I have a Jeep…it may have some issues…but it’s my car and it gets the job done…when it’s working lol.

Mentally I’m in a good place and getting better. I’m also finally at 31, getting serious about my all around health. I see my PCP and my Rheumatologist soon and I have a long list of questions for both of them. I don’t know…I just feel like recently new life has been breathed into me. I don’t complain as much as I use to, I’m still not a morning person…yet…but when I do get up I’m happy knowing I’m not going to a place I HATE. Money is coming in…I wish it was billions but I can pay my bills. I’m working on my credit. My skin is glowing, my booty is getting bigger…so I’ve been told…and I’m drama free. I also started watching the Netflix original series Stranger Things…and it’s SOOOOO GOOD! So like my life is pretty freaking good right now. I’m just so HAPPY…regardless of all the craziness that’s going on around me, things that would normally bring me down, don’t really bother me anymore. I’m so thankful for everything that I do have and what’s to come.

So yeah…this post was very spur of the moment. Once I got to work I just starting writing in between work or when it got really slow. I just wanted to share what was currently on my heart. I have so much in store for my little ol’blog and I can’t wait to share it with Yinz guys. If you made it this far…Thank You for reading and sharing in my craziness. If you’re a long time reader of my blog…Thank You for coming back. And if this is the 1st post you’ve ever read on here…HEEEEEY! Thank you for stopping by and I hope you continue to stick around.

But yeah, this post is getting kind of lengthy so I’m a leave it here.

Peace Yinz Guys
