Rough weekend

It was a tough weekend.

Trying to get stoked for the new job. Found out Carl and I will be paid on the same weeks. I don't like that at all. At the old job we got paid on opposite weeks. There was always a check on Friday. No more... now we have to budget for two weeks at a time. Do you know how HARD that is going to be?! Then my first check here will only be for one week because of my start date. THAT sucks big time! Gotta figure out how to pay the bills with half a check!

AND Carl's truck died on Saturday -- we had to go buy a new one. It would have cost more to fix it than it was worth. We were planning on doing it anyway, but in the Spring. That was money I didn't want to part with. I'll be stressed about it for a few weeks.

Then J-man got sick. Fever, throwing up, nosebleed, headache... had to take him to the doctor on Sunday. He is getting better. He can't go to school for two days. He's happy about THAT. Of course, I am feeling awful because I'm not home with him. But Carl is there; that will have to do.

Oh well. Life goes on. We'll work through it all. Money, sickness, stress... this is going to be a stressful Christmas!

Yikes! I know that you want to be with J-man, but he's in good hands. You're such a good mom, Marni. He knows that you would be with him if you could..
How was the first day at the new job?
We are still under a financial crunch, too. I'm just trying to be thankful for what I have, and not dwell on what I don't have. It's not so easy, I know. Try not to stress, Marni. Try to enjoy Christmas, and your family. And the new truck!

Breathe Marni...breathe....Bid is right - you are a great Mommy! Everything will be fine - you will see...

Hugs for you!

[the beginning of my verification word is "fwuk"...heehee..I like that!]

smile on!

Ugh, that sucks. But I've been living most of my adult life with a paycheck on the 15th and last day of the month; you'll adjust.

We need to go out and celebrate ... and let off some steam.

I think are lives are currently running parallel.

Mr. MFBA's car is not working and we do not want to sink the money into it to fix it since we had planned to replace it in the spring. So far, we are playing one car household until we make a decision.

We get paid ONCE a month. It completely sucks!

Just started a new job and all hell breaks loose! Sounds like Murphy's Law to me!
