Well, the low price of oil combined with an early summer drought has made the Western Canadian economy a bit poopy to say the least. Discretionary spending has been cut everywhere. Since most of what my business does is covered by peoples’ discretionary spending, things are slower than hell.
Picked up a two day a week bus driving contract. Have an interview Wednesday about driving a fuel truck to refuel rural fuel tanks. They hired someone previously, but that person didn’t turn out to be reliable, so I’m back in for a shot at it. Getting the second gig (they’re willing to work around my bus driving) will really help out, and still leave me some flexibility with my own business.
Wish me luck.
