My four year old daughter called me today!

April 15, 2010

Of course I answered the phone.  ‘Hi daddy, I love you’, she said right away.  She was in the car in the way back and was telling me all about pre-school, and swimming, and Finding Nemo, and ice skating, and water slides and she wants me around.

All I could think about at first was ‘are they recording me? am i being set up?  What’s the catch?’

Then I didn’t fucking care about that shit anymore.  I was having a beautiful conversation with my beautiful daughter!

It was the happiest moment I’ve had in the last year.

Well that didn’t last too long…

My unemployment payments ended back in February and I was able to finally get a temp/contractor job that I started last week.  The job isn’t that bad and I see it as something to at leasts get me back on my feet until a job in my field opens up.

But here is the rub.  I ran out of gas twice last week commuting to and from work.  I have already paid for gas in rolled coins and now have nothing left.  This job pays weekly, but it is at least 3-4 days until I get my 1st check.  And I hear this place is a pain at paying you on time.

I had to call out today with the reason, I have no gas to get to and from work until I get paid. 

Hopefully they are understanding of the situation.
