YIPPEE, Yesterday was payday!
I worked 64.66 hours and my paycheck was for $259.16. Now let me explain that again.
I get paid $7.87 an hour, so I earned $508.87
but the state of NH got $162.88
my rent was $25.86 (for 2 weeks)
and then the rest taken out was for taxes

So bringing home $259.16 might not seem like alot, but when my rent & utilities is only $25.86 for 2 weeks then I ain't complaining. In the Winter months my paycheck
& rent will go down.
What good does it do to get paid $2000 a month if you have to pay over $1000 just for rent in some city then also have to pay for utilities, transportation to get to work, insurance, internet service and food. Seems like that $2000 would be gone faster then my $500.

Seeing as I already know that work hours will be cut and paychecks get alot smaller during the Winter here, I have overpaid my Quest bill so that I should be all set with internet service until the end of January 2011. I have also ordered food from & other sites. It has started being delivered to my post office box. I am stocking up on instant oatmeal, peanut butter, coffee, rice,& microwave popcorn.

I am also trying to figure out where I want to go for next year's vacation. Yes even with $500 a month (most of the time with less $$$) I can even save money for a vacation. Course I won't be sending my son money for school during the winter...I sent him $200 on Monday and that will probably be the last time until Spring.
