Woe is me??

So life is slow and good right now.  Well, aside from the hemorrhaging money part.  The “check engine” illuminated the other day, and the whole re-tighten-the-tank-lid thing didn’t help.  Allergist fees - $100, vet fees - $250; now the mechanic costs… good thing we’ve saved up, eh?  Otherwise we’d not survive this whole living “quarter employed” deal!

Yeah, somebody call the whaaaaambulance here.  I’m not in danger of losing the house, and I have a kitchen full of food.  I also have a wonderful family, better friends than I deserve, and so much more to be thankful for. 


Because every day is the weekend when you’re unemployed!

I have no plans for the weekend.  Other than taking the boys to the gym to swim, maybe, and church on Sunday.   And homework.  Let’s not forget the homework!

Allergy update

My eyes are mostly normal now, but they ached all day.  I had no idea swollen eyes hurt.  But they do.  Gumption was lacking today, on account of the eyes.  I might just go back and get that epi pen, anyway. 


  1. Our oldest calls it "financial diarrhea. "

    My service engine light is on. I have chosen to believe, for now, that it is because we're finally over 75K mi and it is time to do a tune up.

    I need tires, too.

    My eyes have been swollen like that before. It did hurt. I'm glad you're on the mend.

  2. Well you know my opinion on the epipen - all the cool kids are carrying them now!

    I'm so glad you've got a positive attitude about life. Some of these challenges would put some of us into a serious tailspin of misery and you really seem to be refusing to let it deter your spirit from succeeding in happiness. Well done, lady!
