Having a bad day maybe...

maybe...that is why I am grumbly this evening. I weighed in this morning and gained 2 lbs. That just started my morning off wrong. then I come home to bills after bills. This week is going to be so hard with bills. House payment is due, a few large bills, insurance....and then there is Kayla's surgery monday so I am having to pull out of the savings for that. And then my husbands work has cut their overtime by 5 hours which will hit us about $100 a week. I'm in panic mode I think...which just ads to my frustration and grumbleness (is that even a word?).

I thought my etsy store would bring in a little extra moolah but yeah...that isn't working like I thought. I have some stuff left over that I can make a scarf or two to try and sell at work. But that is not something I can count on really. I wish I knew how to make extra money. Especially at this time of the year. I "think" I am close to being almost done with Christmas shopping but with only 4 more weeks to go....I know I still need some pricey things. ugh. Why does money always have to be a problem. I know things work out...it always does...but it is still frustrating and I get myself all worked up over it.

Kayla will be parking her car for a long while in just a few short weeks simply because she can't get a job around here. Bless her heart she has tried and tried and tried...not even Dominos would hire her. I know she doesn't have any experience but for goodness sakes....she has to start somewhere! I wish someone would just give her a little break and hire her. Even if just for the season rush.

The kids got their progress reports today and I am happy to announce they are passing but barely...Shawn has a 70 in one class and a 77 in the other and I think Kayla's lowest is a 76. With only 4 more weeks of this 9 weeks, the semester is almost over, and that sends me into yet another panic attack as I worry about them not passing and failing for the 1.2 year. And KAYLA CAN NOT fail darn it. I have ordered all her Senior stuff, etc...and Shawn....well he can't afford to fail anything with the way they new credits/hours are.

Anyway...just rambling...guess cause I am just upset and worried about things.

Drat it all! Sad to hear that Kayla hasn't been picked up yet. But there's still some time. I'm sure she's hit all the possible places. Drat, I say!

And hope the grumbles find a way to leave your happy home. No need to have that added to the holiday stress. Have fun at Twilight!
