She Works Hard For Her Money

The Captain lost his job today. He's been there for 6 months and was starting to get concerned because he wasn't pulling in customers and numbers like the others. No one talked to him at all about it in this time frame. His boss told him that there was nothing he could have done differently to have a better outcome.

I'll now be working more hours at the store which is great except that the husband will be out with the father in law doing contracting stuff all the time now. Which means, when I really need a nap (and lately I've been having killer migraines, KILLER) I won't be able to partake in the festivity of said nap. Meh.

Hopefully he'll find something soon. I think we're gonna end up on MA for the kids because my work is union and there are almost a dozen people in front of me who want full time.

Please let the "Life Sucks Royally But We Shall Overcome" phase begin.

"Life Sucks Royally But We Shall Overcome" - doesn't it just?

Having been "financially challenged" for the last decade, and seeing a definite change for the better in our quality of life in the last 4 years, I have to say that the climb up began once the "We Shall Overcome" kicked in. I really believe that if you let yourself get discouraged, you'll never get out.

Oddly, my finances aren't much improved (I have less debt, but make less money) now, but the jobs are more to my liking. Maybe, going after the Dream Job I'm Not Supposed to Be Allowed to Have, was the key...?

Good luck to hubby in the job-hunt... I'm sure he'll find something soon. And as for MA - hey, you do what you gotta do for your kids, right? That's why it's there.
That blows. Sorry about his job.

On a different note, my doctor hooked me up with these lovely pills that I take if I see spots and my migraines don't develop fully if I take them. You may have already tried this and it may not work for you, but it's been a life saver for me.
I am so sorry to hear this, Trish. He was in a really tough business. I know he will find something that he loves, and you will get a house, and life will be wonderful. Just have faith!

Hang in there. Everything will work out. I really believe that.

Trish, I've got the choir warming up but before you start singing...remember: it is what it is...Here I sit 4,000 miles away from the Queens english, with 14 credits towards a MA pulling weeds to make it happen for my kids...sometimes overcoming is a bitch and it seems too much to ask...Hold ON!!!!

One Of These Things Is Not Like The Other

When was the first time that you realized that your home was not like other people’s homes? 

My house has always been different from other houses. I don't think I could narrow it down to a particular time. I recall not having friends stay over. Ever. I always stayed at all my friends' houses and called their moms "Mom".

Not a lot of my friends were only children so to them, I was the odd duck. Believe me, I *was* the odd duck. Just for a myriad of other reasons.

Having a family of my own, I really see the differences in houses. We are more relaxed with some things that would not fly in other houses. It gets loud in our house. Extremely loud. If I stopped them from being loud all the time, I wouldn't get a single thing done. I tend to jump in right away when the kids are arguing because it can, and will, quickly snowball into WWIII and someone (or both) will be crying. We let our son play the Wii, computer or DS for far longer than other parents or even the "…


Please do not ask me to email photos out, I get entirely too many requests for them. These are the ones that I have at home, thanks to a couple of sources.

This Has To Be Said

I haven't blogged in 8 months. We bought a house, still unpacking, school started. You know, life. I felt the need, the urgent need to blog about the Adrian Peterson situation today. I am full of all sorts of feelings and had to write about it. I would love to hear your thoughts on this whole thing. No really, I would. I don't feel I was a douchebag in my writing so all I ask is you not be a douchebag in your response. Thanks.

My thoughts on the Adrian Peterson situation (but first, some backstory):
I was spanked as a child. I'm pretty sure most of us that grew up in the 80s were.Until the summer between 5th and 6th grade I lived in Charelston, SC and from 6th to 11th grade, North Chicaco, IL. I have seen every form of discipline doled out on a child. I've seen spankings, beatings, hairbrushes smacked into heads, spoons hitting the tops of heads, whips, belts and even switches. I've seen it all.Most of you know that my son is named after a little boy who died from c…
