Since I am on a rotating schedule at work, I don't have the same days off every week. Because I work two jobs, and I have to prep for the night job, that leaves very little free time for me, since I use my days off from my day job to prep for my night job. Hopefully, I'll spread the work out over a few evenings, so maybe I can actually enjoy my days off.
Yesterday, I did a lot of running around and prepping for my night job. Today, I slept sort of late but not really. I took my car in yesterday, and they were able to fix it, but it cost me $500+. I tried not to freak out about it; I'll be getting paid from my night job soon and I can start replenishing the emergency fund.
My brother came over today and we cleaned off a bureau and got rid of a lot of stuff. I had hopes of mopping and waxing the floors, but I was too tired to do it. I cleaned off the dryer and part of a shelving unit today and put the couch cover back on. I also sorted out some mail. Needing to get out of the house, I drove to Columbia City, then decided to stop into a store to see if a friend was working, but she wasn't there.
It's really hard to work a rotating schedule and get stuff done. Combine that with being tired all the time, and feeling hopeless about the future, and it's all one can do to drag one's self out of bed and into work.
I'm working on my first music parody video, and it's tedious, but at least I'm learning it's better to put the soundtrack in, THEN match up the shots to where you want them. That's really about the only fun I'm having these days. I'm trying to do things to make me laugh. I also have another idea for a video and started getting footage tonight.
We are still looking for actors for our sketch comedy skits that we want to put on YouTube. We'll probably put them on Roomforschemes.com as well.
