they opened up over time at work up to 34 plus your scheduled shift a week, I really hate to live there but I expect to work several hours a week. Too many bills and not enough moohla but hopefully it'll help, maybe even buy a book or two with it, who knows.

Jasper seems to be doing much better, so we cancelled the vet apt, but we're keeping an eye on him. We think, for lack of a better idea, that his new flea collar was what was making him sick.
