Broke but Thankful.....maybe??

Yesterday was a horrible day for me!!! I am starting to sink into a deep depression and wonder if I will ever get out of it. I miss my old life where I didn't worry about money or have anything to want for because I had it all.... But I couldn't sacrifice my pride in order to keep all of that, so here I am..... Almost Divorced (from a cheater-in which I loved to a fault) with nothing left but my pride and my babies!! And that my friends will have to do! This is the second Chrismas in a row that will SUCK a$$! (Last year is when the cheating and finale began--and it still goes on)....
So about yesterday...In the morning when I woke up...I had dozed off about 5 am, since I don't sleep well these days...My cable had been disconnected, GREAT! So I figured I would deal with that later and stayed awake until about 10, then drifted off again, only to be woken up by a loud bang on the door (which I ignored because I thought it was not important because a lot of my family lives close and they like to drop by....but I was just so tired, I refused to get up. Well that was a MISTAKE, 2 minutes later, the house went black! I jumped straight up out of bed and looked out the window, it was the electric company truck. I knew what was going on!! The bill was late (didn't realize how much so). I ran outside and caught the guy before he left. He said if I had the money he could turn it back on.... Well I thought I had it, only to find out I was about $50. short. Well, he said "this time" he would be able to take what I had and I could pay the rest tomorrow (today) or he would be back to shut it off again. OK, crisis averted for now. My kids could have heat one more night. But WTF am I going to do? Cable is 2 months due, electric, phone, and with Christmas a few days away, it is safe to say my kids will not get anything from me again this year! But they are little, so I guess with everything they will get from everyone else they won't notice? Or at least I hope they won't.
My birthday is Monday, I will be 30 F*cking years old, and I had hoped to be in a more stable situation by now.....So much for hoping!
Well, I have been thinking, and instead of wallowing in self-pity I am going to try and think hard about 30 things I can be thankful for since Monday I will have put 30 years into this thing I call "my life"....SO HERE GOES!

  1. Good job turning that around!! Congrats on the weight loss!! I need to lose a ton but I haven't been able to. Hopefully I'll start now though. I have long hair too, my husband cursed me when I cut it after our youngest was born. LOL


Give it to me straight from the heart.....
