Life has a tight grip around my middle, pulling me ever deeper in the water. I’ve been in a bit of a funk, mostly because we spent too much last month and I’m playing the never-fun game of catch-up. You know where you pay bills from last month with this months check, but that doesn’t leave enough behind to cover this months. So you borrow from the next check to cover this month, leaving something else not paid. It’s a vicious cycle to be sure. It’ll all even out before long, I’m sure. But it’s sucking the life out of me right now. If I could give up eating it’d be taken care quicker. Unfortunately, I need that food to keep up with the three kids and husband.
Speaking of J, he’s just started a Neuro ICU month which will certainly kick us all the butt before long. It’s Q3 which means that he spends every third day and night on call. Doesn’t it sound healthy to you to stay up all night every third night? He showed me his paper that he used the other night to keep track of all his patients. It was completely insane!
[MB-if you could ask your J to send up some good Neuro thoughts for my J, I’m sure he’d appreciate it.]
As it happens, J has tomorrow off so we’re having Belle’s party after the soccer game. It’ll be a great girlie time with dolly hair styles, pin the purse on the Kit doll game, and making (and eating) pretzels. I’ve performed somewhat of a miracle in the house today. Sorting piles, scrubbing floors, filling bags with trash. It’ll feel so good tomorrow to have it all done.
Unfortunately, I’m not yet finished and I still have a cake to frost tonight. Back to work for me! Have a lovely weekend!
