Yesterday was a very weird day. My wife found out that she’s getting more hours at work which means she’ll make twice as much, with paid vacations and better health care. I also found a new job while at the very same time possibly losing another one. If I had found out the day before about losing that job, I would have been suicidal. We have been at the point for a couple years where if either of us lost a job we’d be homeless in two months. We couldn’t go on vacation because neither of us could afford to stop working. We could have found other work but it’s not so easy. If I lost the job with no back-up plan, doom would have descended here. I have to admit that it’s been hard to work on my novel and keep up the same energy for my job. I still have the job, but I can’t fuck around.
I thank whoever’s in charge of synchronicity for delivering that news about my job yesterday rather than the day before. It was the best way possible to get bad news. I would have been paralyzed. Now I’m hopeful. The family’s got some breathing room.
Also yesterday I received the CD burner which works just fine and I finished a draft on my novel. I’ve got to get this novel the hell out of the way, then I’m going to start recording again.
