Army of Mom

So this is how liberty dies ... with thunderous applause.


My head hurts

I just have a headache today. I think my body is trying to fight off allergies, but I'm not sure. It could be any number of things from doing too much on too little sleep to not getting any because me and the hubs are like ships passing in the night. We roll over and kiss each other good night and then we're snoring. His company did a giant inventory this weekend and things are still rolling from that. We have soccer, other activities, my work and freelance. You name it.

I'm soooo ready for Sept. 30 to come. That is my last day at work. While I dread the financial straits we will find ourselves in because all the money we hoped to save and all the bills we hoped to pay didn't happen. But, I'm trying to be thankful that we had the money for my surgery, car repairs, dental stuff for me and AoD, Hot Rod's dental stuff, etc. We're still paying on the medical stuff, but that is nothing new for us. We are always paying medical stuff and probably will be for a long time to come. So, it will suck to be broke again, but it will also be nice to be able to clean house, sit down and relax with my kids, have a good dinner ready for AoD when he gets home, those sorts of things. The money will work itself out. God always provides for us what we need.

I don't really have much to say today. I have lots of neat birthday pics to post, but have had no time to resize pics to fit on the page. Uzz sent me this story about these assholes who locked their foster children in cages and it just breaks my heart. I wonder why kids don't tell someone when they're mistreated. I mean, I guess I never told anyone about the things my mother did to me either, though. I just knew she was emotionally disturbed, but I'd rather live with my crazy mom than go to a foster home. So, who knows what goes through these children's little minds. Seems awful that someone entrusted to care for them would do that to them. Hell, I feel bad for the nights my kids go to sleep without dinner because they chose not to eat the food we served for dinner. I can't imagine doing things like that.

Maybe I'll blog something funny or humorous later. Right now, I don't have it in me to do. I hope to have a giant cute factor post tonight. Going to a Mommy and Me ballet class tonight with Stinkerbelle. My mom bought her a little leotard and ballet shoes. The tights were all out in her size, so she is just wearing some regular pink tights I had for her. But, damn, she'll be cute for sure. Not so sure about mom.

    Claritin and Rx cough syrup at bedtime for a few nights seems to have helped shorten the bout for me. Getting better slowly but surely.
