Enough already!

BAD NEWS: Here is the pile of bills I have
WORSE NEWS: Here is the pile of money I have
Now what?

BEST NEWS: I finally (after 3 years of nothing) got a raise at work. An almost $2 raise. Which I was rather thrilled about and TOTALLY deserved. My thought, how do you NOT give me, the person you've been MAKING work 6 days a week since SEPTEMBER, a raise. I should be thankful, and I am, but to work someplace where they've given me more, and more, and more work, but haven't given me a raise in 3 years, COME ON. But I finally got one now. I just hope maybe i have a little left over at the end of the month to get my self a massage. This will be the first week since September that I have a 5 day work week, that didn't involve vacation time or a holiday. The plan is to work 12 hour days Monday so iIcan have Friday AND Saturday off. We;'l see how it goes.

P.S. As of last night Big Brothers girlfriend has not popped out baby Sarah yet. My mom plans to take us to Red Lobster tomorrow and stuff her full of seafood, so she'll go into labor. I don't know. It worked when my cousin was preggers. We stuffed her full of seafood and she had the twins a few hours later.

A seafood dinner sounds so much nicer than what my mother did...walk me around for hours! I went into labor in the garden center at Walmart with Kate. You would have loved the people in the checkout infront of me and how thye paniced and told me to go ahead and checkout.
I'm glad you got the raise but gosh you work some hours girl! You have a good attitude about being thankful for having a job. I wish more did.

I feel your pain about the bills and change. That's my life, too... but I haven't gotten a raise!

Seafood, eh? Better hope she doesn't pop out a little Nemo instead of a Sarah ;)

look for a massage school. They are usually a lot cheaper and I think students do a better job because they are being graded on it. We have one here where you can get an hour for 20 bucks. awesomness! Congrats on the raise!

I agree with the massage school.... you can actually make pretty good money!! ;-)

I hope your "money/bills" situation gets better SOON.... I swear, it just sucks all around right now!!
