Too cold for Mardi Gras parades!

January 30th, 2010 at 02:51 pm

I was kind of excited about my first Mardi Gras parade of the season today. I brought along my mom and younger brother, but we left pretty early. It was just so darn cold!!! My legs were numb as were my feet and I forgot my gloves which would have been very helpful. We got a few large beads and some candy but we just couldn't take it. It's been pretty warm this week but of course on my weekend off it has to turn freezing!! Stupid Louisiana weather can never make up it's mind in the winter time.

Speaking of weekend off I am actually working tomorrow morning 8-3. I hate getting up so early on a Sunday but it's in photo, which is easier than being in the pharmacy. Only thing is that I haven't worked photo in a while and I don't know if I'll remember how to do everything! The manager says I'll do fine, but I don't know. I'll make it the best way I know how I guess. I took it because there's a chance of overtime with it, and if there isn't it's about $70 extra. I will hopefully be able to apply it to my car loan debt. There's really no other way to make any extra money right now so I figured it would help.

The car loan debt is at 2,667! It feels so close. I'm paying minimum on my student loans right now so it's a little over $13k. On the new job front it's still not looking very good. A couple of the places I've applied have sent me emails that I need to reapply because they have a new human resources website or something. It is so hard to write a resume for each job, not to mention cover letters!

I hope everyone out there is making their savings and getting out of debt goals!

    Nice progress on the car loan, that will lead to a great deal of relief when it is paid off and you can put the money elsewhere. And you mentioned that your car is seven years old? That's good for your insurance rates, so as long as it's in good running shape it's a terrific situation!
