New everything...

Gosh...this week has been so bloody stressful.
Trying to figure out whether I want this job in Dease Lake, or to stay here and just find something else. I'm doubtful that if I stayed here, I would be able to find another job that's gonna pay me 15 dollars an hour to do whatever it is I've applied for.
So, Thursday came about, and a day off for me. I wanted to go to Value Village cause Chance was complaining about not having swim trunks to take Drius to the pool with. D's in swim classes, that were supposed to start last Sunday, but Chance didn't take him.
So, I get up and shower, and we get everyone (Marty, Mom, Chance, D, and me) out the door, and we head over to Value Village. Got the stuff we went for...and were on our way to Sally Ann, and then (earlier b4 we left Chance seen this ad in the newspapr about this dealership having a huge sale), Chance asked to stop by this Dodge dealership...and I dragged my ass in there, not expecting anything to opan out of it.
So...10 hours later (split of course, 5 hours each day), i've walked out with a 97 Ford F350 Lariat Four door quarter ton pick up truck. Leather interior with wood paneling, cd/tape, and heated seats.
I'm happy I had to ability to be financed...but it seems like a lot. I'm gonna pull some strings to get my budget in gear, and hopfully my plan for this whole thing will work out.
My hopes for Dease Lake are still there...I still want more than anything to get away and make it on our own. I still want to be able to put money aside for our house and land. We'll see how that goes...with my emotionally roller-coaster with this Truck business, I need a bit of a break to just chill out and think everything out more clearly.
I'm late...I'm losing weight, and my tummy has been in knots ever since this whole Dease Lake thing started. Stress can do aweful things to you.

New Year...New job?

Well, been trying to muster the nerve to tell Sylvia that I want to quit...haven't been able to yet.
Took this last week off. Went to Gramma's to drop off a washer and dryer for them, and when we got back, I just phoned in, the last day I worked was Sunday (9th) and just went back Saturday (15th). *sighs* Back to regular hours...full week with two days off but still split up.
Seen a really interesting job posting for a Hotel/Motor Inn manager in Dease Lake, BC. 3-4000 per month plus bonuses and benefits. I'm very intregued (sp?). Would be nice to go up and check it out...but it's 1061 miles away from kelowna, and what looks on the map as a short drive to Juno Alaska. Way up there, but I see it as an opportunity to bank some big money. Emailed the ppl asking more details, so we shall see what pans out of it.
*daydreams of having an extremely high paying job with benefits*
As much as we've researched it in this little time, I haven't seen much about it...700 POP, with some pretty chilly temps. I could deal with the temps I suppose, but how boring would it be?
No real reson why I want to quit my job...just the fact that a) It's not what I want to do with the rest of my life, and b) I'm ready to move on. I am feeling very unsettled, and antsy. Itching to move on with my life.
Took some decent pictures with Darius and myselff. When I seen that through all the pictures we took over X-mas and New Years there wasn't one decent one with Darius and myself, or Darius, Chance and I.
Am getting ready to send off a box to Chance's mom with some D art and other misc. stuff that he's done.
The cold temperatures are rather interesting, I don't ever remember it being this cold in Kelowna before...but my memory really isn't that reliable.
