i'm pretty much settled in the new van now, and kitty likes it too! last night was the first night i slept in there, and aside from a minor bed situation, it was very comfy. it has a little fridge that works when plugged into shore power, and my cooler fits right inside it, perfect! i will need to get the sink fixed, but that's the only major repair, all other systems are go. it feels so much bigger than my old van, and the headroom is amazing. i could have dealt with living in the old cargo van, but this van makes living a breeze, so i think i'll be inclined to vandwell a little longer than i had originally thought. i've got to get the old van on the market this week, asking price $1900 which is about what i have in it. should be able to get at least what i paid for the new van, so it's an even trade, fun!
ok, so food update--there's 145.87 left in the food budget envelope. I've spent 25 on groceries, a buck on water, and 20 on the breakfast queen and a peanut butter cup from the chocolatier. that's all after the 8.56 i spent at the coffee shop. let's see--22 days left, 146 dollars--i'm right on track with about 6.50 a day to spend! i won't spend any today and probably not for the rest of the week because i have enough breakfast food and i'm working every night. i might be able to go to (gasp) devil's food for breakfast this week! yummmm.
still no word about the other job, and i can't tell if i really want it or if i'd be just as well off to stay in my current situation. at least i won't feel bad leaving my current job when the time comes.
