It’s Happening Again…
It seems this time of the year happens the same way all the time and it is getting really old. We thought we were done with having low funds but it’s happening again and we do not like it at all. We have a great lineup beginning April 1st but nothing from now until then and Maggie’s issues ran our funds so low, scary low, so low that we may be sucking fumes on our way east. Even though we have traveled this way so many times before, we got so comfortable with having a few extra bucks that this is once again making us a bit anxious.
We have been looking for work along our route using every avenue we know how to use and finally yesterday we got the call. Hallelujah! We had been waking up with hope and then go to sleep with dread because nothing happened throughout the day even though we had done all we could to make things happen. We were getting discouraged and once we get that way, then the big black dark hole of despair opens up and swallows all of our hopefulness and then things get really bad. We refuse to allow that to happen this time.
All it took was one call from a wonderful person we had sent our resume to and for it to pan out. We will head for Dallas on Monday to train on Thursday and then work the weekend at the Convention Center for a concessionaire company. The pay is great, the hours are long and they just may have more once they see if we like one another. How great is that?
So now we hang out here in the St David area enjoying the weather, meeting up with some friends and then NASCAR on Sunday. Does life really get any better than this?
