This And That

The weekend before last my school board had a CPR/First Aid training session. I was going to take one anyway in town for about $120 with D but then the school board advertised that it was offering a free training session (with the same company) so I decided to do that one instead. It was two full days in a city an hour away but we got paid for mileage and that was deposited today, $149.

So not only did I not have to pay the $120 to take the course, but I was PAID mileage. It probably only cost me $40 in gas to get there and back twice that weekend. I actually made money on a course!

Last night D, his friend and I went to a sportsbar for dinner. We all got burgers. I had a $50 gift card so I paid with that. It was a fun time.

Today I am working for a few hours at the aerial park (I haven't been there in over 2 weeks!) and then D, maybe his friend and I are going to see Green Lantern. Ryan Reynolds, how can you go wrong?

Yesterday I had a test at the restaurant. I thought it was going to be pretty easy and instead it was 200 marks, it took almost an hour and a half to write and it was challenging!! We needed to get 90% in order to pass and be allowed to work alone, no one felt confident leaving there yesterday, I'm nervous. I will probably find out what my mark was on Friday if I get called in. Hope I passed so that I can start making some money there!

A mom stopped by my house yesterday, I sometimes babysit for her kids and asked me to watch her kids tomorrow night overnight and that she would pay me $80. Not a lot but to pretty much put the kids to bed, sleep, and then give them breakfast in the morning and play until their grandparents show up, it's a pretty easy tax-free $80.


  1. Always good updates coming from you. Keep them up.

  2. Wouldn't it be nice if AQs were like that too? :/

  3. Don't you love being reimbursed for mileage. It is like a personal fundraisier. When we have to travel out of town I always volunteer.

    Great blog..this is my first visit.
