Gimme yo' Numba

What to write? What to write?  I feel like there's so many things that I should write about, yet nothing is coming to the forefront.

Bird started pre-school.  I cried more than she did.
I still have my part time gig, and it still doesn't suck.

I went on a date after signing up for a dating website.  I honestly HATE dating.  I hate it.  Perhaps I expect someone intelligent and amazing to come across my profile and want to swoop us away.  Instead, I get people who can't write to save their lives.  Guys that clearly didn't read my well crafted profile tidbits, nor read the "Don't message me if you want casual sex." disclaimer.

Nope, weirdos and oddballs, please!  Message me!  Tell me how you like fat chicks and you'd love to get it in.  Better yet, get pissed because I won't give you my number.  Sheesh.

I should give up on that but a part of me enjoys the few that come through that attempt to write a well thought out message.  Those, few as they are, give me that little oomf I need.

I've managed to devour almost a whole bag of Jelly Belly candies (the BIG bag too) in about, oh...2 nights?

Oh!  I have glasses now too.  I look smarter.

That's all I got.

Well that was Short Lived

And....
I get to my night job and they let me go.  No reasons given although I speculate that I just rubbed the manager the wrong way OR she wanted to give the hours to those she liked more

Am I upset? Slightly. Not that that particular job let me go, but that now I'm in a tight spot again for Bird.

Tomorrow starts the hunt again.  I am just so sick of this never getting ahead thing.  I need to get a degree or something, like a skill.  I may look Into dental hygiene

I'm so so tired.  Something has got to give.  I really am tempted to pack is up and go

Finally

I haven't been here for excellent reasons:

*I have a day gig
*I have a night gig!
*I'm spending free time with Bird.

That's right kids! Momma got herself 2 jobby-jobs! Both are part time and both are rather enjoyable. 

2 afternoon/evenings I work for a local dentist as a receptionist and 4 evenings/nights I work for a local off theater (as in Broadway-esq not movie).

The staff at both as well as the majority of the customers are quite nice and patient as I learn the systems and the jobs themselves aren't horrific.

I've noticed a huge change in Bird as well.  While she was just with me, we had affection issues but now? This kid is full of hugs and kisses and as soon as I walk in, I hear ,"Hi mommy!!"

Greatest feeling ever. Seriously. Although she is sleeping when I get home from the theater, she still snuggles closer than she had prior to my employment.   She is more cuddly with me and also is trying to play with me more.   It's kinda cool when you're constantly brought over for tea, to read a story or to help feed baby.  I really am loving it.

Financially,  I'm not sure where I am yet.   I deposited my first check from the theater and sadly, it's not a lot.  I do think it was only one weeks worth which is part of it (both are bi-weekly pays).  I have enough for the car right now,  and i will have to stagger the payments.   Hopefully, it'll work itself out.

I am feeling overall exhausted but like it's worth it.  Seriously,  hearing Bird call for me when I walk in makes it okay.  I don't feel guilty,  I don't feel bad.   She enjoys her new sitter and I see how happy Bird is with her.  Sadly, the sitter leaves for school in August and I'll have Bird (hopefully) in a local daycare.
