-sigh- may have to sell....
Ugh, sometimes I hate life. On Friday I got fired from my job....I could go into it, but we'll just sum it up and say if they'd rather have the two new people who aren't trained and the one who always calls in as their employees, that's fine by me! At least now I get to sleep in past 4 in the freakin morning.

The only drawback is of course, that I may have to sell Ice. I'm going to talk with my BO and see about working off board, plus the trainer fee I now have. I got 325 dollars out of my last checks, so I only need to make up 100 more to be safe for next month. I'm already selling most of the crap I have laying around the tack room (I don't use it anyway) and on Monday I'm going to go and sell some of my clothes at the second hand store so I can hopefully get my farrier bill paid (Its only 35 dollars). I do have a couple of job leads, I need to call the local emergency equine clinic about the overnight position they sort of offered me (I REALLY want that one), and then I have a phone interview on Monday for some electronic cigarette kiosk in the mall (the pay 10.50 an hour). There's also a Subway thats hiring.

Hopefully I'll be able to make it through without selling my horse. My mother already told me point blank that they can't afford paying for him, but if I can work off his boarding fee, I might be able to scrape by on having them pay for his farrier bills and my gas. Thankfully, he's had his teeth done, so he'll be set for this year, and his coggins and other vac's arent due till late May/early June.

What a way to start my weekend, huh?

Oh, that is really to bad! I sure hope you find a job soon and don't have to sell your horse!

I'll think good thoughts that something better will come along and you won't have to sell.

Aww you poor thing. That is so hard. I really hope you can find a job quickly so you things work out. It sounds like you've been looking and working things out and planning ahead. I'm sure something will pull through. Have you looked in local adds to see if there are barns who might be looking for a hand? I know our barns here are constantly looking for barn help. You should look within your town as well for cashier positions are grocery stores.

Good luck with the situation, it's a rough one. Best wishes.

Thanks for the well wishes guys, it helped! Today is officially my fourth day of unemployment, its wierd because while I had a job, during the low season I might have more days in a row off than this, but it still feels different. I have an interview tomorrow morning at Subway, and I've put in my applications/resumes EVERYWHERE that is hiring. I'm really hoping to get a call back from the local animal hospital, I told them I was experienced in cleaning (which is basically all you do around animals--that and deal with all kinds of bodily excrement's) and so we'll see what comes out of it.

On a side note, I also talked to my BO and I've picked up the all day Saturday shift. It's going to be a permanent thing since another girl is leaving, so now I'll be working off half of my board bill each month.

That's great! :D

Thats great! Half the board bill will be a huge help! Good luck getting a new job!
