Landscaping. Every. Single. Fucking. Day.
On the bright side, Tom took a position he was offered, although we’re not sure how “bright” it will be. His pay went up, but since it will be fewer hours (supposedly) it will actually be a little less money, but as I said before, we’re willing to lose a little money in order for him to have his life back. The only unfortunate thing is that it’s still first shift. They may also be hoping to roll him onto a salary in a few months, which he would rather not do. That way they can try to take advantage of him and he would be more likely to be asked to travel. I could go with him, but they wouldn’t pay for my expenses.
Looking for a new series to get into. Although there’s only one season of Twisted, so far it seems pretty good. It’s aimed at teens, but a lot of the teen stuff is the same as the adult stuff, just minus the gore, sex and swearing. It’s an ongoing mystery as opposed to one or two crime cases per show.
"If you believed in God would you believe that he sometimes tests us?" someone asked me.
Punishes, maybe, or at least allows bad things to happen to us, but tests, no. If you believe that He never gives us more than we can handle, then He should know upfront what we can and cannot handle and therefore He shouldn't need to test us. God is supposed to be all-knowing, right? Isn't that part of the fantasy when it was created, just like Santa Claus was also made up to be all-knowing and to know who's naughty and who's nice?
The reality is that we're all eventually given more than we can handle. If we weren't then we would be immortal.
I was also asked if we would still consider Florida even if I had no family there if we're not able to go straight to Hawaii. Yes, Florida is on the table regardless.
