Someone come over here and turn my face to the sunshine, willya?
Sick and tired of being poor. Not that we were ever rich, but money was NEVER this tight. Just spent $60 filling the gas tank. There goes about 1/2 of my paycheck from job #2. The hardest part is telling my kids "no" for even reasonable requests. And watching my friends enjoying their still-solid incomes. OK, I admit it, I'm jealous.
(Goddess-of-my-better-nature says "But darling that means you HAVE jobs! And you HAVE healthy kids who need things. And you have friends!)
Looked at the calendar today. Between jobs #2 and #3 I can't go visit my family until sometime in June. And I need my peeps know what I mean? By the time I CAN go gas will probably be $5 a gallon.
(Goddess-of-my-better-nature says "Sweetie again that means you have employment. And you have an extended family you love. And you have a car!" )
Lately a friend has been rather rude to me, and for the life of me I can't figure out why. I've wracked my brain and just can't figure out what's gotten into their britches.
(Goddess-of-my-better-nature says "Honey, you know in you're heart that it's their issue. Like you said, you haven't done anything mean or with evil intentions. You can't control their perspective" )
This weather - AAARRRGGGHHH! Will the sun ever come back? Will it be warm enough to lounge in the grass? Will I ever find a free afternoon that actually does not contain rain or snow so I can plant my garden?
(Goddess-of-my-better-nature says "Love - remember the serenity prayer. Or move" )
This kitchen! I had apartments in college with bigger kitchens. Together the kitchen and dining space are about 10' x 10'. This has seriously cut into my cooking enjoyment and my ability to have friends over.
(Goddess-of-my-better-nature says "But you DO have a kitchen in a cute little house. It's warm and cozy and clean. Good friends will still want to come over and sit cheek-to-cheek" )
