...and BOOM, I'm broke

I think the reason why I'm feeling especially down (as per my post yesterday) is because my friends are all saying things like,

"2014 is the year of success!"

"So far this year, I got an amazing new job and bought a house. Next up, European cruise for my honeymoon! Keep it coming 2014."

and there are countless more posts or conversations that go like this.

I push and try and strive and I have nothing to show for it.

Anyways, it's that time of year. TAXES!! woo! It always hurts to open up that bill.

So I get paid today and D and I have to pay by March 20, $1,700 for the first half of my municipal taxes, $600 for my car insurance and then the rest of my bills and

We've been saving for it but with a weekend trip out of town a couple weeks ago and a going away dinner for T, things are once again a little tight.

To boot, I have finally caught whatever plague the kids had the last few weeks and it's taking everything in me to not fall asleep at my desk. I have no energy and today is the Science Fair. So there will be parents and judges walking around and I have to take photos and post to FB and be social. Then I have a Marketing sub-committee meeting tonight at 7:30 pm. I don't mind going to the meeting, but having to go on a Friday night almost 3 hours after I leave work is just going to kill me. I wont be able to turn off for the weekend until late tonight. :(

Well back to work...


  1. It sucks to barely have any money like a couple of days after you get paid.. We have been living mostly off our savings the last few months, and it really takes it's toll on .. Well everything..

    But things do tend to get better.. Just hang in there hon. *hugs*

  2. Hi, I just saw your comment on my blog about twitter and I've added you on there. Sorry it took me so long to see it. Hope to talk to you soon.
