    New Job!

    The courier job I took a couple of months ago didn't work out quite how I expected... but in the end it actually may have worked out better. I wasn't making enough $ on the run I had, and with my rapidly aging rendezvous, I wasn't taking enough home after expenses, so I put in notice. About the time I got done, however, they put an ad out for a manager position. I applied, interviewed and got the job, I start on Monday. I'll also be giving up the bus driving job which honestly kept the lights on , but wasn't 'all that' otherwise.

    full time with benefits (after 90 days...)... decent company and just about recession proof (pharmacy delivery of medicaid prescriptions is our core business...).
