Sort of....I didn't feel really all that great this morning and am losing enthusiasm for my job. I'm just not feeling the love there anymore. Many aren't......
By cracky, LOL, I'm finally getting a half decent glitter to my PSP stuff.
Some new plans on my horizon (not job wise, I wish?). My BF has decided to be my project manager on some household improvements. He's got a great eye and can find the best things for the best prices. We talked about new carpeting for the family room. The carpet in here now is an ugly rust shade plus starting to wear. I do have money stashed away from a home equity loan that I frugally spend. His offer....I put in the carpet...he'll replace my old 27" inch tv with a 32" or 36" and a beautiful tv cabinet. My stand is quite old and tends to collect junk which is out in the open. LOL...I'm getting the better bargain out of this deal. I really want to replace my fogged patio door in the diningroom. It's not a custom size so would be around 1,700 to replace. That's on the burner but something that will have to be done eventually.
My BF and I have had some major issues for a while. He works with me and has been able to promote his income to about 3 times mine. It sort of went to his head. When he first seperated, he was about twice my income and really helping his family out, which I loved about him. He was humble. Somewhere along the line, he became judgmental and...ok...downright stingy (conveniently forgetting the help I provided him when needed). I didn't expect him to support me. He got enough of that from the ex. There lies the problem. He was afraid I would become like that. Relationships are tough. Ours has been a very longstanding one. Somehow, he listened to his words and realized he was treating me like his child. I had a dad....I'm not looking for another.
I mentioned he is moving to the newer part of his apt. complex in a couple of weeks....a beautiful one bedroom townhouse. He is coming back to earth and reality with me slowly but surely.
My income tax is done. Breathing a sigh of relief for this year only....$700 back...enough to pay wage tax (a Pa. thing) and put in the carpet. I seriously have to redo my budget for next year because I will owe if Joey is not in school. Haven't quite figured out how this will be done. My BF, the accountant, has made some worthy suggestions.
LOL...Megan is down to $15 in her account. I have been giving her money this week. The pay off from this has been an enormous attitude change. She has been doing chores by her own volution with no coaxing. At least, she came up with this realization on her own. I do appreciate that enormously. I do love these kids of mine beyond belief.
Joey does not have celiac. His test was negative. The rash will have to be biopsied at the dermatologist. His stomach ailments...back to accupuncture. He hasn't had that in a year or so.
As far as vehicles in this household are concerned....this is also being thrown to God. He knows my needs. Somehow, He will provide.
LOL...spring is sprung or at least trying to do so. The time of year when the house gets a good cleaning and improvements are made. I finally am at peace with my sad budget for now. Tax season kills me. I usually rebound by the summer. Praying now for some OT which definitely is a God send.
All in all, spring is a time of rebirth.....emotionally for me, anyway. I eagerly look forward to beautiful, warm weather once again and the return of the lush green colors. Personal issues and problems don't seem as mind boggling when the world outside isn't 5 shades of gray.
Quoting David...SMILE! (I love this!)
