I woke up yesterday morning to my Partial Unemployment Claim money from the Department of Labor coming in. I was fairly surprised because I was warned by HR that it would possibly take close to a month to come to me. I guess partially because my bossman put things in motion fairly quickly and HR was working their butt off. I feel grateful. That, and I needed the money. I woke up this morning knowing I’d only get about $100 from this paycheck because I’d only worked 2 shifts two weeks ago. I guess I’ll be getting another $100 in another two weeks from the 2 shifts I’ll be working next weekend. I’m a bit worried they’ll scrap the Partial Unemployment Claim since I’m technically working, even if it is just 2 shifts and that’s definitely not enough for a living wage.
Is it weird that I miss working? I had a dream I was with one of my coworkers who’s always cheerful and nice and when I woke up, I was sad I didn’t have a shift with her. I don’t even think she’s gonna be working next weekend. I miss walking in for my cleaning or breakfast shifts and knowing exactly what needs to be done immediately. Front Desk is a shift I’m mostly familiar with. I doubt I’ll run into many or maybe even any problems this next weekend. I’ll probably be hearing crickets most of the day. I think I’ll just struggle with trying to find something to do. I wonder if they’d care if I got all my stuff done and get on my blog, ha!
On a side note, is anyone else getting tired of any time you cough and someone even jokingly starts saying “Oh no, Coronavirus” because it used to be a silly joke to me but is now just getting annoying. I know it’s not something that should be joked about but I kinda don’t care. Like, I do. But also, I just wanna laugh, so fight me.
I need to go to the store, today. I shouldn’t and should have my items delivered but (and this is gonna be a bit TMI) our toilet clogged and has been clogged for about a week now. I tried plunging, Drain-o, and a small, 2-foot plastic snake but none of that has work. Our bathroom is smelling like a literal outhouse. It’s starting to leak into the room (the smell) and waking up to that is not wonderful. I can’t hold out much longer. I, also, need to get a few things for my animals. Technically, if the virus wasn’t going around, today would be my usual grocery shopping trip. Although I still have a good bit of cheap food. My main focus is the toilet snake and my animal’s food and supplements.
Alright, I need to go get ready. I want to get the day over with. I hope everyone has a safe day!
