My sweetheart has started a new 'part-time' job to help pay off some medical bills quicker:
He donates blood plasma twice a week for an extra $200 a month. Well, the idea was actually conceived by him to "support his habit." (He knows he is getting a hand gun and concealed weapons permit for Christmas... what I didn't realize is that purchasing the gun isn't the ONLY expense... you have to purchase a safe, safety mechanism thing-eys, ammo, the optional undercover-covert-wannabe-CIA-agent-inside-your-waistband-holster...) So JP was originally just going to donate for a month to earn his cash to pay for accessories for his new toy, but when he started going, he realized it was a pretty cool way to earn a little extra cash. Who doesn't like vampires? (I'm an Edward fan myself) and what guy doesn't enjoy getting paid to sit in a recliner and watch t.v. for $25 an hour? So tonight he mentioned going permanently and using the extra money to help pay off medical bills quicker. I love him for it. Don't get me wrong, he consented to taking me to the Sandpiper for dinner in a couple of weeks. (I'm a great negotiator.) I do have my own Edward, after all, don't I? After all, 'tis better to give than to receive...
courage for the week 8.20.17
