Ahhhhhhhh…welcome to Monday morning.
And it’s a true Monday, people. Nightmarish start, bad financial news, a glitch with Disability, kids acting up, etc.
No one lost a limb or drew blood, so I think we can thank our stars for that!
We are writing a household budget at the moment here. Fun times. And doing an analysis of future expenses, it just got worse.
I have a girlfriend who manages all of her expenses with her five children, solo. With two of us, we are barely squeaking by. I always thought I didn’t know how she was managing the time issues alone to begin with, but now I have to say doubly that I really don’t know how she manages.
Disability, of course, never fully covers the previous salary. Therefore, if they run behind at all, I am up the proverbial creek without a paddle.
What a start to the day, much less the week.
For a sarcastic moment, I have to add that I thought the death of Osama Bin Laden was supposed to fix everything? Was it not? 🙂 I know, obnoxious…
I am digging for humor. I am. Especially when faced with the reality that I have to be on disability right now. I can’t make it through an entire day on my feet, not if I expect to leave my bed for the next two days.
I need peace, calm, clarity. They seem to be in short supply for me. And when you are running at high anxiety to begin with, any added pressures are a killer.
Sorry so low, and boring, today people! Still sending blessings…
