So what was supposed to be a $99 install has turned into a $2000 repair that will involve a whole day's work tomorrow in order to bust up our tile and concrete floor and fix what the builder did wrong in the first place. The builder's cheapie quickie fix somehow lasted us 12 years before it started seeping, and we may eventually have the same problem in our other bathroom.

Hooray for corner-cutting builders and their cheapie quickie fixes that get hidden under tile and concrete.

We really can't afford this right now, but we don't have a choice either.

Looks like I'm going to have to stop applying for the jobs I want and just try to get anything I can.

.... Okay, I just put in another application with the same place, this time for a page position. It pays less, but maybe I can at least get an interview. I'll take a page position if it gets me in the door where I want to be instead of taking a job somewhere else that isn't where I want to be long-term. If this doesn't pan out, I'm going to have to bite the bullet and start looking at retail.

Oh, and have I mentioned that we're BP shareholders? Yeah, so that's why we're losing money like whoa. I know Obama thinks we shareholders should just go hang--because how dare we invest in eeevil corporations instead of the sinkhole that is the federal government--but some of us actually depend on the dividends as part of our income.

Oookay, and they can't come back tomorrow after all, so they'll be here Friday. Uh huh! This just gets more fun.
