So the job is going ok. Last week they put me on their payroll at the same rate that I was making with the temp service. That's ok it's not bad and I can hang with it for a while.
I have sat down with pen and paper and planned out how our money is going to be spent over the next nine months. I have accumulated a pretty hefty credit bill. With all of my credit card charges and everything I bought we are looking at around 38,000. I am 400.00 away from my savings goal. I want it gone by December. Needless to say there is not going to be any huge purchases. I have a couple of birthdays coming up and a small trip but that should be all for the next couple of months. Disney in July and home in October if all goes well.
Pray for me it is going to be a long nine months.

Hey guys, good news on the work front, they want to buy my contract with the temp agency and bring me in full time. It's only been five weeks and usually it takes thirteen. I was so excited I went back to my desk and shedded a few tears. When they called me in the office I thought it was going to be the end, but to my surprise it was the opposite. How sweet it is! I am a happy camper!
So on to planning. This year will be paying off debt, next year it will be saving, and the year after that will be buying a new car. Let's see if I can stick to that. Hopefully I will be able to as long as our health stays the same both human and mechanical.

Well 4 weeks down. I went live Monday and it turned out to be not so bad. I didn't panic, I did have someone yell at me, that is typical for customer service, I had someone tell me my company was full of idiots because he couldn't get into our web site, and someone called and asked me about a medical issue. I was shocked(because we don't do anything medical) and had all I could do to keep from laughing! So it hasn't been so bad.
The fruits of my labor are helpping out s whole bunch. I expect by the end of the year we will be doin just fine. That is if our health stays the way it is.

So I have completed 3 weeks and have 10 more before I become permanent. Can't wait. Since I am in customer service I go live on Monday. I have the computer ordering part down. But am a little nervous about where to find things in the system, nothing is simple anymore. Screen hopping can take time and put some customers off. Oh well I will deal!
I must say that it has been hard getting use to being awake all day. Friday was the first day I felt alive, it's getting better as each day goes by. Got ta make it work!

So I got my first paycheck today. I sat down and paid all of the incoming bills plus my mortgage, with some to spare. I can't tell you what a relief that was! Next pay period I am going to attack the big credit card bill. That will take some time!
I am enjoying being back to work. I have 11 more weeks before they can make me a permanent fixture. Can't wait, my future depends on it.
