Last night I went to a meeting with roommate and I ran into my sponsor. A little awkward considering I haven't called her in like 3 weeks or a month. Whatever. She was probably a little annoyed, but she really didn't show it. She invited me to come to her house tonight for a party that she is throwing for one of my sponsee sisters who just got ten years clean. So, although it's going to be a little awkward, it's time that I got back in the swing of things, so I'm heading over there tonight. I'm so broke I can't even bring a dish. I feel like a real slug when it comes to money right now. I've been waiting for my unemployment money to come through for two weeks now and so far I still haven't gotten it.
I'm really expecting it tomorrow. It usually comes through on Tuesday night/Wednesday morning. If I don't get this money tonight I will be so upset. I have to renew my Health Card to work in the restaurant - that's about $30. I have to get a Sheriff's Card - it's $85 and I have to get black socks, white shirts and a few other pieces to complete my new work uniform. Money money money. I literally have one dollar in my wallet. So, I'm praying like I never prayed before that this money comes through tonight.
After the meeting last night, roommate took me and two of his friends out to dinner at Claim Jumper. I love that place! I had the fried shrimp dinner and then we had the most amazing brownie ala mode to die for dessert. It was big enough that all four of us shared it and there was still some left. I ate so much. Delish!
I actually got a call today from the other restaurant I applied for yesterday. They wanted to interview me today, but honestly, I'm sticking with the job I already got because it's fine dining and that's what I like. The other restaurant is a bar/restaurant with gaming and I doubt that the money will be very good. It was pretty dead when I went in there to fill out the application.
I'm going to try to enjoy this last week I have off before starting the new job. I'm going to take it easy, try to get all of my errands done and rest up, but I'll enjoy it so much more if I have some dough. hehe
