Today was pay day and I decided to treat myself on the way home from work by stopping at a gas station/convenience store on the way home for a cheap pair of pizzas. Every Friday pizzas are buy one get one free so $15 later I’m driving home with two very well stuffed pies and a 64oz cup of soda I probably shouldn’t have.
This all of course made me laugh as I stuffed as many condiment packets as I could in my pockets (hey I’m broke salsa and mustard cost money) and retired to my kitchen to chomp on some pretty damn good pizza.
I have my next 4 meals which should get me through most of tomorrow save breakfast where I will do my usual taters and eggs. Have long shifts through the weekend and week with no complaints this pay period was more of a catch up but if work sustains I might actually get somewhere!!
And all I had to do was show up. The next two weeks might be rough but after the next check things will lighten just a little bit then two weeks later maybe a little more.
One thing I’ve learned the hard way is that typically if everything happens at once it’s usually a bad sign. Real progress happens incrementally and I have to accept that. I have a great deal an army even of people supporting me in areas of my life all the way to what I think I should eat tomorrow the only thing I truly lack in this life is patience.
I waited for two pizzas why can’t I wait for a better next two weeks?? I feel like I might sleep tonight and that is an amazing accomplishment even if I don’t sleep just the feeling of peace (and pizza) I waited a half hour for two pies hand made from a gal that cared about her job what’s another few weeks?
Pizza lady, awesome job!!
