Got to sleep in, AT LAST

if only for a little bit... got up at 7 to turn the heat on & went back to bed, and altho I kept dreaming I was running late for something, I did not get out of bed until 9:15.  Heaven.

Ya see, I've been busy on a daily basis with work for income.  I like it that way.  My current schedule at the restaurant is cashier (in the absolute worst tip-creating shift) on Mondays from 7 a.m. until 3 p.m., then "float" (which is the second worst tip-generating job) on Fridays and Sundays from 9 a.m. until about 3 p.m. I don't dislike either of these jobs, nor do I dislike my co-workers, the clientele, the food, nor the restaurant itself. I dislike the commute, particularly since I'm still the new kid and am going to only be scheduled for this "worst" schedule.  Which is why, when I find industry work, I do what is necessary to swap or give up any shift that needs coverage so I can go make money and be happy.  It's also why I don't see myself working at this place anywhere near as long as my friend Lynly, who mediated my hiring.  If another similarly-waged non-industry gig presents itself in my neighborhood, I'll be jumping all over that opportunity.  Hopefully, it won't feel like I'm abandoning my 'mates!

THIS WEEK, starting on Friday of LAST week, I had three days at the restaurant, followed by three days on set (*squee!*), followed by TWO days at the restaurant, a day of personal assisting/bookkeeping (today), and then I'll have two more days at the restaurant. I'm really hoping that I pick up some more industry work this week, to keep me busy on Tuesday through Thursday. I really like having something to do every day, especially if at the end of the day, I get to say,


Just no more sleepin' in for me. :)


  1. You ARE a money magnet! Look at you with all of this work and stuff. That's so great to see stuff happening for you guys. The first time around, I worried. I never mentioned it, but I was concerned you weren't seeing enough employment to sustain the life you deserve. Glad to see that maybe I was wrong all along. You go girl!

    1. Tomorrow is day eleven of eleven in a row, unless someone books me for Tuesday. If I DON'T get booked for Tuesday, I will be following up with Universal Studios, Trader Joe's, and probably Central Casting... and maybe Costco again. My days off will NOT be wasted! I WILL be productive! I WILL find a closer, equal-or-better gig! The industry stuff is the "dream" job. :)

  2. Ha ha - money magnet! Wanna send us some of that magnetism?! I am glad you got a lie in x

    1. WHENEVER I receive money, be it a paycheck or cash or even a FOUND penny, I hold up the note to the sky, and I proclaim, "I am a Money Magnet, Thank You, Thank You, Thank You!"

      It has DEFINITELY worked for me THIS week.


I LOVE your feedback; give it to me, Baby. Uh-huh, uh-huh.
