Well, it's about to get exciting here... maybe. Not in a good way.
I'm reaching the end of the 2nd week in to my temp gig with the YWCA (interim thrift store manager).
Greg is more than likely to start doing OTR trucking with Stevens Transport unless he can find a job here in the next week or so. He's already been hired, he just has to tell them when he's ready to go to Dallas to get his 3 week refresher CDL school thing done. We're not breaking up. We talked a lot of shit over. We've actually been getting along pretty well. Basically, if I get a decent job at the end of the temp thing we'll make a LDR work and he'll send home money so I can afford to keep our place. His company said they'll route him home every 3 weeks but he's warned me that in his experience it ends up being around every 6-12 weeks. I think I'd go stark-raving mad by myself for that much of a time period.
If I can't find a decent job at the end of this temp assignment I'll be joining him on the road and we'll be subletting our place furnished to my little brother so that we can keep our stuff there as DOT requires him to maintain a real address and not a PO box. But, the part that really makes me sad is that this transport company has a no pets policy. I would have to rehome the katzen and he would have to rehome his dog. I really don't want to rehome the katzen to spend 20 hours a day in a semi. It really makes me cry. I know my brother will not be willing to be responsible for the dog & I highly doubt he'd be willing to take on the cats even though his costs for a furnished place would be $300 (including water) + electric & cable if he chose to have it - we'd be subsidizing $250, I wish for that he'd at least feed the cats and empty the cat box - I'd even gladly pay for the food.
*The katzen is like the kracken but far worse. It has 16 legs, 4 tails, and 4 heads. It is very scary and is a force to be reckoned with.
