So Yes I've Been Gone

For a while as my blogging friend Toni pointed out to me. I have fallen off the non smoking wagon but with good reason. I'm not naming names or telling much of what happened but my friend's father got arrested while I was there. I've heard stories of police abusing power and acting out of jurisdiction, but I've never personally witnessed it until that night.

So they are taking his charges to court and trying to fight them. We've already put in all our statements to their lawyer who was stricken dumb when he heard what happened. I hope that they win their case and the civil suite afterwards. I ask that everyone that reads this please think a good thought or say a little prayer our way.

I only have two cigarettes left in my pack and then back on the wagon. Yes I know I should just throw them out but, hey, money is tight and I did pay for them dammit!

On the positive side I just got a letter from the Walmart Corps. letting me know that apparently I missed two paychecks while I was working for them. At first I thought this was weird but then I remembered how damn frivolous with money I was before. I mean I had the means back then but that's not a good enough excuse. I can still be frivolous but I'm much more less so now a days. If losing 5 thou. and then getting yourself out of another thou. of debt and moving back into your Mother's house after a horrible breakup teaches you anything, it's to be careful with money.

So in about 90 days I have two huge paychecks coming my way, at the latest they should be here by the beginning of November. Which is great since I'm planning on moving towards the middle or end of it to North Carolina and I need at least 400 and some to pay for car and car insurance payments for a month in case I have trouble finding a job, the paychecks will cover me for two months and then some. Plus the money I'll be saving until then. Goodies for me.

Well, I am tired, more bloggings tomorrow!


  1. Yaaahhh you are back!
    Let me tell you a story.
    I was in the hospital and I had a miscarriage. I was about to be wheeled off for an operation and my husband found $40 lying on the ground and he said "even stevens."
    The universe has a way of evening itself out. You have bad luck, then you have good luck. Even Stevens.
    That's why you had bad luck with your friend, but then you had a win fall with your pay.
    The same will happen for your friends.
    I bet the person who this was named after, Steven, had ciggies on a bad day and I bet he swore like a trooper. Don't worry about falling off the wagon. Your wagon has been lighter because you have already cut down. Even Stevens.

  2. Yes, good luck! All along the line! That's cool about the "zombie" paychecks. A nice surprise, to be sure.


I wish my comment form was shiny.
