We are almost there friends! We are almost to the end of what seems to be the longest week of March yet. Work is busy, as is life. So why does this week seem to be taking forever? Your guess is as good as mine. It’s just one of those weeks where nothing really is happening. You go day to day and live the humdrum life. Is this a bad thing? Absolutely not. Does it make for a long week? Absolutely. All I say to this is “Oh well,” and keep on living the good life.
Maybe this week seems so long because I am looking forward to the weekend ahead. This weekend I get to celebrate the baptism of my handsome nephew. Along with this comes home cooked meals, cable TV (it’s the small things, folks), egg coffee, family fun, and relaxation. It makes it even better because Cory gets to make the trip with me. I don’t know if you all know how rare that is. I am beginning to think that a majority of my family believes that I no longer have a husband (Don’t get the wrong idea, Cory wants to come home with me, but I usually make the trip back home on the weekends he has to work because I become bored and need to do something.) This being said, I am very excited for the weekend and it can’t get here soon enough.
Now, I am going to change topics entirely. I have said it before and I will probably say it again, but I hate money. I hate that I have to rely on it to live, I hate that everything seems to be getting more and more expensive, and I hate that a lot of fun things I would like to do includes me having a lot of it. As Cory and I look into the future and the plans that we have, money is involved. We try our best to put as much as we can in savings but life has a way of throwing us curveballs and it is getting harder and harder to save these days. With the possibility of the theater being open sometime this spring or summer, it would be nice for Cory to just work on that. We have discussed being a one income household, but the closer that gets to reality, the scarier it seems and I just don’t know if we can do it. With this and my love to go out on dates, shop, and spending money in general (I am a woman after all), I just don’t see it happening. Now, the last thing I want to do is put a damper on your day. I have a point, I promise. The point is that I am thinking about getting a second job. I have been debating this for awhile, but never have taken action. It seems like a second job would answer a lot of our monetary problems, the only thing is that I don’t know if I want to give up my weekends and holidays off. We all know how I look forward to the Fridays of the work week because it means that I have two whole days to do anything I want , when I want, and I love them. There are pros and cons to each side and I just don’t know what to do. I think to myself that if a single mom can hold two jobs, go to school, and raise her kids, I can put up with another job. The other part of me wants to be selfish and say we can manage without the extra mula in our pockets. For a person who hates money, I sure think about it a lot. *Sigh* What to do, what to do.
Okay, so now that I have put a damper on this post and have ranted a bit longer than necessary, let’s move on to something fun.... like cake! Mmm, cake. Enjoy these pictures of wedding cakes that failed. Happy Thursday Friends, for tomorrow is TGIF!!

  1. I don't know that a one income household is really even feasible anymore. We tried it and we made it two weeks before I started freaking out, so then I got a new job. I think until the theater starts pulling in money, Cory should stay at his job. Just in case. I plan for the worst, always. LOL.
