This is my first day of non-work. I had planned on living it up — maybe drinking some Moonshine down by the river and playing some Dominos with the homeless. Instead, Henry got me sick so I spent most of the day sleeping, whining, sweating, shivering.

It’s OK. I’m sure I’ll have plenty of opportunities to play with the homeless once I’m homeless myself.

I have no idea what to do with myself. I’ve applied for some jobs, and Henry is trying to find ways to cash in on my brain. I foresee plenty of financial land mind dodging in the future.

But at least when I cough, it tastes like powdered Slim-Fast.

In other news, we went to visit Henry’s mom Saturday night. After she succeeded in being accidentally racist in front of the Bosnian residents outside of the complex, we went into her apartment where she bestowed me with two boxes brimming with old photos of Henry. As much as it pains me to say it, he was actually a cute kid. WHAT HAPPENED. Then I came across a photo from his wedding and while it seemed to be very awkward for Henry, I couldn’t stop laughing. God, his ex-wife is trashier than a dumpster in Newark.

  1. I hope you feel better soon!!!

    Welcome to the housewife world…
    I’m sure you’ll put that bitch June Cleaver to shame.

    • Thanks! I’m feeling better already!

      I’m happy to get to spend more time with Chooch, until I find another job (hopefully one that’s just part-time). It’s the cleaning and cooking part of being a housewife that doesn’t agree with me!

    • Hey, Erin.

      Try elance.com. It’s freelance work. You have two options – one, the free membership, in which you are allowed to bid on up to 3 jobs a month, and the $10 a month (?) one where you are allowed to bid on up to 20 jobs. There are all sorts of jobs, like data entry, writing, proofreading, etc. You only bid on the jobs that have payment in escrow. Once you have won the job and completed it, payment goes right into your bank account. It might be something to look into; the trick is to come in with the lowest bid.

      Someone just told me about it, and I’m going to check it out myself. You can use it to supplement another job, or rely on it for full-time work from home.

    • Thank you for telling me about this. I checked it out briefly and it seems very interesting. I’m going to go back tonight once The Monster goes to bed and sign up.

  2. Tim was really cute as a kid too. I mean, he’s cute now too, but he was a REALLY cute kid!

    I remember when I first met you, you had just quit Weiss Meats. It actually seemed weird to me when you got a job, because you weren’t posting as much about stalking your neighbors and stuff like that, you know, things shut-ins do. =P

    • God, that was so long ago! Most of the time I enjoyed not working, until I started working again and remembered how good it was to do my own thing and get out of the house.

      Maybe I can just join some clubs or something!

  3. God it’s been so long since i had moonshine, i miss the good ole days. and i need clarification, with that trashy comment…are you saying he traded up??? i couldn’t be sure. :)
