We were hoping to get an hour to ourselves Friday afternoon, you know an hour where we could actually make some noise! Well the youngest is having a bit of a hard time lately and decided he wasn’t going to school Friday afternoon after all!
His mental health is important, no doubt about that, but doing certain things is important for MY mental health too. And the Bear …. it’s not just about being kinky, it’s about managing stress as well.
The truck also needed to be looked at again, it was leaking fluid. Ends up it’s the transmission … so yeah $$$$$
The washer decided it has finally had enough, new one should be here today .. $$$$$
The car needs back brakes …. $$$$$
The oldest is finally back in school but not yet in college so funds we put aside are not yet accessible BUT he spends most of his time at his GF’s so we pay for groceries off and on …. $$$$$
Everyone around here is having a hard time so half of the families i did work with/for are off, which means my income has dropped again. I was already at 75% lower than i should be …. so more lost $$$$$
All of this in the past 30 days.
Oh, and let’s not forget Christmas!
So yeah, those 50 minutes or so are important once a week.
