money, yay

October 18th, 2005 at 06:42 am

My first paycheck was twice what I thought it was going to be (I thought I'd only get paid for one week, but they paid me for two). Awesome! My aunt also sent a "congrats on your new job" gift. This extra cash means my Christmas gift fund is still full, and I'll be able to buy a plane ticket home for the holidays. The latter would be easier if I could get an answer out of my employer about time off, but at least I'll be able to pay for a ticket if I ever get an answer. I'm starting to feel like a pest, but ticket prices are rising as we speak, people! Chop chop!

I've been bad about sleeping too late the past few days and missing the bus, which means I have to drive to work. I don't mind driving, but it sucks up cash to pay for parking, and it's dumb when I have a bus pass. I need to figure out a way to make myself get up earlier. This morning I even had everything ready (lunch, clothes, etc) and still missed the bus!

Over the weekend we visited an apple orchard and picked thirty pounds of apples for $19! It was fun, and the weather was beautiful. We gave away five pounds of apples, but we are still swimming in them! I'll have to look up apple recipes. I made dinner from scratch on Sunday night, too. I also went to the gym last night and worked out! How do you like that? Hopefully I'm getting back into the swing of things.

    You'll get the hang of catching the bus. Sometimes you have to reset your interior clock. Also, I've been oversleeping myself and I think its the shortening days, or rather the abrupt mornings. I'll have to think about using light as an alarm, instead of the radio...

    Yeah, I've been thinking about pulling out my sunrise alarm clock, too. It just seems too early! Wink

    Kashi, I enjoy reading your blog. It kind of reminds me of my wife's emails when we were still dating and for a while we were living in different cities. You and her have the same writing style - almost like you're talking to someone face to face, with expressions/gestures and all Smile
