Oh to Not Have to Work!

The economy is in the poop-er and yet we still seem to be asking why.  Or, well maybe you aren’t but a lot of people still don’t know why.  I try not to think about it too much because it just reminds me of my own financial situation.  I’m in debt like most Americans and I really wish I wasn’t.  It’s my own fault, so don’t feel too sorry for me.  I’m lucky, in a way, because I was able to stop before reaching the 30,000 or 60,000 mark.  Now I’m on the track towards freedom from debt, with a solid good plan.

Trouble briefly arouse when I had an unexpected immediate transfer out of the store I’d been working at for about a year or so.  I work retail, like so many of you, it’s just a day job.  My first store of about six years was closed and so I was transferred twenty minutes away from home.  But, now I’m much closer, though it was involuntary.  I was concerned to, because the process of the transfer didn’t go smoothly.  In fact, I didn’t even know for sure which store I was going to end up at till last Sunday.  Things seem to be working out though, as I don’t have to worry about not having enough hours for my next paycheck.

Things are settling down now and I have a lot less to be nervous about.  I guess sometimes change has a way of kicking you in the butt when you least expect it.  However, I find that it usually is for the better, or at least not as bad as it seems.
