It appears that between my buddy, my brother and my niece, we collectively managed to get this fucked up unemployment thing to work.
I see I just had a check get deposited.
It’s nothing short of a minor miracle I tells ya.
Especially when I recall all of the nightmare horror stories I have seen about other folks having had to go through. My niece being one. It took 40 damn days for her to get her first check.
This will also take a load off the Wifely Unit.
She has understandably been as nervous as a long tailed cat in a room full of rocking chairs about being able to pay the bills.
I have been trying not to spend any money, conserving what we did have, just in case.
It’s not like I plan on going on a spending spree but I do need a couple of things for some long overdue projects and at least now I can feel OK about spending twenty bucks.
I have been slowly going through a bunch of crap out in that garage and already have a load in the back of the Caballero. I am going to continue working on that and fill that bitch up because some of it is pretty light but those fuckers at the transfer station have a tendency to just eyeball what I have back there and then pull a number out of their asses and charge me without having to weigh in and out.
I’m gonna get my money’s worth out of those fuckers.
So, some good news for a change.
There is still lots of bad news out there, it’s just that right this second I don’t feel like immersing myself in it.
I need another cup of coffee and get out in that garage instead.
