My husband turned 40 today, which sounds so strange. The age difference doesn't really bother me (especially since my FWB is older than that), but it is a little jarring to think about, mainly because I don't want to admit to being out of my 20s yet and really don't feel there mentally. I couldn't afford much in the way of presents and we usually don't do much for eachother's birthdays because we're always broke, but I burned the first 2 seasons of The Walking Dead onto DVDs for him and made his favorite things for dinner - homemade garlic bread, spaghetti & meatballs and a from-scratch chocolate cake.
I put in for a sales job at a car lot on Friday. I talked to their sales manager and he seemed willing to hire me and all that and was supposed to call me back Monday, after they ran a background check. I still haven't heard back, which has me stressing because I was so hopeful for this. I asked if filing bankruptcy would come up and count against me. He said no, they only checked for felonies. I know I don't have any of those, so there shouldn't be a problem. I did call today to check but the guy wasn't answering his phone, so I left a voice mail. I guess I'll call back again after the holidays if I still haven't heard anything, but now it's starting to piss me off - I could have still tried to visit my parents for Thanksgiving if I had known they wouldn't call me back for an interview this week, like he said they would.
Other than that, I'm signed on with this MLM weight loss company called EPXbody. If anyone else is interested in losing weight or a way to earn extra money, hit me up and I will be more than willing to sign you up. It's $39.95 for a month (unless you do the protein shakes, which are $49.95) and if you decide to sign on as a distributor you earn 25%, or about $10 for each person who orders each month. The part that got me to sign up is the 90 day challenge they sponsor - you earn money for losing weight, starting at $80 for 20 pounds, and going up to $500 for 50 pounds. Yep, that's extreme, but I think I can lose that much if I can get paid $500 for doing it. If you're interested, there is a video about it at PaidToLose.net - watch it there and you can sign up for my spam emails and info about the company for a chance to win $1000.

The rugrat is doing good. He's still growing like a weed and talking better and better each day. He's also toned the cussing down some, which is good, especially if I get a job and he has to go in daycare. I'm ahead of the plan on my NaNoWriMo novel and wrote a whole lot today, but now I need to crack down and focus on some more of my paid writing for the next day or two. After this month's over, I'll probably channel that NaNo energy into writing some ebooks and either self-publishing or submitting to a few publishers so I'll have a little money coming in even when I'm not actively working things.
Adulthood sucks and life is too complicated, especially with a child thrown into the mix.
