Tired but Holding on

Rate this Entry
Man, being responsible can really wear you out mentally. I spent the day discussing my "plan" with those I owe money to. Of course they don't really care that I'm trying, they just want their money. Now, Now, Now.

I'm tired of telling people "none of your concern" when they all ask me "well what caused you to get behind?"

I mean really, what will it change? If I tell them I didn't feel like paying it or that I lost my job is it going to change the amount due? Does it change my due date? I find it rude and obtrusive.

Of course, I've had battles going on with my youngest son's school.

Oh, guess I didn't mention that I have kids. I do, three of them. Well.. four if you count my husband. I also love animals so we own two dogs, three ferrets, and five cats (three of them are off spring of the first two). We talked a lot about getting rid of some of the animals but it breaks my heart just to think about and I figured that three of them will be leaving when my kids move out anyway so I'll be down six total! Of course, that will be a while yet, my daughter is sixteen, my oldest son is thirteen, and my baby is nine.

I'll probably write a lot about them here. I am a very open person and I'm a person who lives with her emotions on her sleeve so please be prepared.

I'm on about four hours of sleep so I think I should go to bed. I just wanted to be here and make a post in keeping with my "New Years Resolution" theme of new positive habits.

    LOL, well said! I agree completely...

    LIFE is what causes people to get behind. You know what I mean, you have the check written to pay your power bill and on your way out to drop it in the mailbox, you see your dog dragging a fish pole across the yard - fish hook hanging out of his nose because he thought the rubber worm looked like fun. So instead of putting that check in the mail, you spend that $150 at the vets office having the hook removed. (Oh wait, that was me a few weeks ago!)

    Or.. you're about to buy groceries and while you're at the store the kids call your cell phone to tell you that the stuff in the freezer is thawed and warm and you realize that the power surge in the middle of the night 3 days ago fried your freezer. Now you need groceries AND a new freezer. Wait, that was me last summer.

    Hmm.. this LIFE stuff really catches up with me. . .

    btw, thank you for the great post, I look forward to reading more.
