It's crazy to think that such a small amount of damage (I know, I know, that's a lot of damage--but in the grand scheme of things and in comparison to the size of my car, it's really not a large amount of damage) can cost $3-4,000 to fix! Ahh! Don't get me wrong, I'm grateful that nothing more than a stiff back and neck happened but it's just such bad timing!
I'm currently looking for both cars AND jobs--I've already applied at a few (dreaded) retail positions and I'm sending out my resume like a madwoman. I guess I should count these 3 days in between LNT closing and mom coming home as a blessing to get out as many resumes as possible and apply for as many jobs as I can. I'm at moms through New Years Day and I spend January 4th-the 12th (I believe) with Christie and Kennedy while Jeff is out of town so hopefully by then, I'll have at least one, if not two, jobs to update with! In a perfect world, I would be able to start my job as soon as I'm done staying with Christie. Don't get me wrong, I know I need a job ASAP and would, obviously, accept any position I'm offered (even if it meant working while staying with Christie) but, oh, wouldn't it be nice to just have these two weeks and start working my butt off after that? :)
