I took a second job at the end of last August. I worked almost every weekend, 8hrs each day, along with my job in the schools. In the summer I'm unemployed from the schools. On unemployment. Because I work the second job, my first unemployment cheque was....0.
So, it is no longer extra money. At the moment, it's the ONLY money I have coming in. Until September. This second job is draining the life out of me. They are short staffed, so I worked 2 days in the office this past week, and I'm now on call for 60hours this weekend. Friday at 5pm, until monday at 6am. It's all me. And the office is short staffed, stuff is not done, it's going to be one hell of a weekend.
If I quit, I'll probably still not get any unemployment, because, hey, I had income,and I quit. They basically want me to work every weekend, and some nights, for the rest of the summer...which basically means me getting anything done for me, having any fun, or getting stuff done for my friend's wedding will not happen. They are sucking me dry.
Do I have enough in the bank to make it if I end up getting nothing for August? Maybe. If I'm really careful. Which means the kids and I sit and do nothing. Again.
Even when I try to make things better, I end up buggering it up. I need to quit and figure out something else.
The good will come, right? I'm 4 years out, and I just can't seem to get to that good place and stay there. This sucks. BS(me) 45, kids DS 17, DD 14.
He is no longer my best friend. Repeat until it sticks.
