That’s right. If you don’t want an earful of bitching this morning, just ‘pass her by’.
I try not to bitch about money because it seems almost everyone I know is currently struggling. But there comes a time when you need to get stuff off your chest, and this is one of those days. I am so very weary of struggling. Dealing with a paycheck that not only hasn’t gone up in years… but has actually decreased thanks to the recent tax hike. Not being able to make a trip to the grocery store because I need gas in my car. Spare me any of that ‘be thankful you have a job’ crap – I’ve said many times before that I am thankful and always list that in my blessing count blogs. It just gets really old having to scrimp and scrape to get by when my next paycheck is almost a full two weeks away. Hell I’m still playing catchup from being sick, with the doctor visit and meds. I literally can’t afford to get sick.
Bad thing is, I don’t see any solution in the near future. Well, that’s not true. I am in control of my own self. If I don’t control anything else in life, I do control me. So I know what I need to do. I need to take myself out and get a part-time job at Lowes. That’s exactly what I need to do. Say buh-bye to my social life, suck it up and work two jobs. Shit.
