    Oh I dont know,maybe remembering that as crappy as your job may seem,15 others down at the unemployment office would snatch it from you in an instant.
    I just picked up DD who works overnight as a baker at Tim Hortons. She just worked at the Seedy store w/ an ex-con alone overnight so..
    What job can she take from you??

    Aspire to something higher. Be the very best you can be and you will be noticed. Also, when you look for another job, you'll get great recommendations and have a glowing reputation that will follow you.

    Weren't you unemployed for a long time prior to this job? I would never risk losing it because you aren't doing the required work. Not wanting to go back to being broke= motivation. Most adults are working, cleaning their home, getting to work on time, setting priorities and preparing for the next days events EVERYDAY of their lives...some with multiple other people to care for as well. As adults, sometimes we just have to stop talking about it & do it. Time to pull yourself up by the boot straps.

    5 cup a day coffee habit?

    Think of this job as a stepping stone to a better job. What kind of skills do you need to learn, or improve on? Which tasks on your list are skills you need to improve?
    Stop trying to organize all of your family’s crap. If organization worked for you, you’d have rocked it by now. It’s time to ditch stuff and de-crapify your world.

    If you're not using the stuff in your home, get rid of it. You're not going to start using it more by shoving it into a closet.

    Use it up, Wear it out,
    Make it do, Or do without. ~unknown

    A clean house is a sign of a wasted life. ~unknown

    Oh no. I didnt know until this morning there was an ex-con. DD usually works at location A which is very close. Owner wanted her to train on the new oven at this other location B which is not somewhere we are familiar w/ but it is too close to Pontiac (little Detroit). So DD said NO thanks. and owner pushed her and she was scared to lose the job she looked for forever. (jobs are still hard here). I wanted to sleep in the parking lot all night truth be known.
    Secondly,DD is 23 and allow and not allow is much harder these days. She's an adult. Albeit inexperienced but an adult.

    Sorry to jack the thread. Glad the coffee helped.hahaha.

    Lyra-do you drift? DD wears a watch w/ an alarm which redirects her. Helps at night because shes alone!
    When I worked a mind numbing job I always equated in back to cash hour by hour. Ooh 2 hrs. worked I can cover the electric bills,4 hours-we can eat this week... I helped me not wander off to the bookstore during a difficult shift of customers.
