Default Major changes here...

In the last month, I have:

Moved into an apartment with my older brother
Aquired two pets(little black kittens, brother and sister, absolutely psycho.)
Gotten a raise(from 24% of gross charges to 25% on each load and up from $40 to $50 for tarping)
Gained 5lbs, but lost 3 inches off my waist
Gone from nothing in my pockets to $1500 in the bank and growing!

I'm doing so good right now I'm half-scared to talk about it and jinx it!
The gas price increases after the hurricanes actually increased my cash flow because our company passes fuel surcharges to the customer, and I get 25% of everything the company charges the customer. So my cut got better as the price increased!

Me and my Brother found an apartment that'* 1100sq.ft. + an attached garage for only $800 a month, so I get to come home to a huge apt. for only $400 out of my pocket!

The kittens are now about 10 1/2 months old. My mother works at a Metro Park here in Columbus OH and somebody dumped a pregnant cat. They never did catch the mother cat or her other two kittens but the two they did catch, my brother and I have adopted. Mom kept them until Sean and I found an apt.
Both completely black, yellow eyes. Mom named them after her favorite Irish song, so their names are Gypsy and Rover. (My bro came home the other night and found Gypsy hanging off the ceiling fan, five feet from the nearest piece of furniture!!)

Finally over some nasty expenses that were killing my paycheck so the mods are now on their way!!

And I'm geting good excercise and eating better on this job than I was at my last one, so I'm dropping some fat and building more muscle mass.

Keep your fingers crossed for my good fortune.(Unless you're typing to congratulate me!)

Grats glad things are looking brighter for you. Cats can be so comical and hanging off the ceiling fan is only the beginning...

Yeah for you!! Everyone goes through peaks and valleys and you are doing great now. Save some of that money for when you go through the valley and you will do fine.

I am very happy for you!!!!
