Well, I'm going back to work next month. I'm looking forward to it in a financial sense, but I am so not looking forward to getting back out there.
It's not an exciting job by any means, but I'll have over 4 paid months off in the winter, which is a huge plus :-D
I'll be working a seasonal job in a local lobster factory, so you know I really want those winters off ;-)

Thanks Phoenix :-D

For some reason, I don't think lobster will continue to be my favorite food, so I'll be looking for cash bonus'

Yeah, it's been a while, but I'll get use to it in no time at all.
I truly not looking forward to getting back out there, but I am very much looking forward to having that pay check every week.

No doubt. First thing I need is a new car. I don't go out much, so I can finally buy stuff for myself :-D
It's been a long time since I've been able to do that.

Oh, you're going to have fun, then! Very Happy It can get quite depressing constantly watching every penny, can't it? Been there, done that. And so frustrating having the time, but not the $$$$ to do the things you want.

Exactly! Money has been tight ever since my son was born and I have no regrets, but I'm ready to bust out of my own skin. Freedom is so close I can taste it, LOL. After almost 18 years, I'll actually have $$$$ to call my own :-D
House is paid, car is paid and it's party time :-D

Exactly what is your job description in a lobster factory? I didn't realize lobster was a manufactured item.

Save your dinero and your vacation time for that A2K meet slash vacation!

Good luck to you. I was out from work for two years and going back was quite a readjustment. But it didn't take long to get back in the swing of things. Keep us posted!

Thank yee. I'd love to go to an A2K meet, but that would be hard to swing since I don't fly :-( Well, I'll have the winters off, so I could always drive if it's close enough :-D

urs
Thanks :-D All I know so far is that I'll be working with lobster. I just hope it doesn't mess up my hands, lol. Looks like I'll have to save my long nails and polish for the winters.

Several posts dealing with lobster smelling fingers comes to mind, each more sophomoric than the one before it. I believe I shall let discretion be the greater part of valor in this case.

Good idea Mr. Throbber Wink

Montana, good luck and all the best wishes for your
first day on the job. It is usually the hardest, and once
you're passed the awkwardness, things seem to fall
in place.

I'd like to get the winter months off too, then again
we never really have winter Laughing
