Re: nursery interview apparel

Interview is tomorrow.  Yes, 10-12 is good pay for the job.  My problem,
compared to other friends of mine who have been out of work is that I am
alone.  Believe me, I'm not whining about it. I like being alone.  But that
means I pay for it all.  House payment, car payment, vet bills (I may not
get to go to a doctor since I have no insurance, but my 4 cats do),
utilities, taxes, car/home insurance.  Everyone else I know who's been out
of work for awhile can get by because there is still some income.  I could
get by on $11, but there would be no $ left for extras.  No plants, no
mulch.  Of course, a job like this could make me tired enough by the end of
the day that I wouldn't want to do much gardening at home.
