We Will Not Talk About...

- How our air conditioner went out last Thursday and I had to ask my mom for money to get it fixed.

- How once I got to her house to pick the money up I collapsed into a tearful heap, finally told her how screwed up all our finances are and apologized for letting her down and being a loser.

- How, when I got back home and talked to the repair man, the money she gave us wouldn't be enough anyway because we'd need a brand, spankin' new air conditioner. Hello $4,000!!

- How we had to get a credit limit increase on the same card we used to buy the furnace in January to pay for the new air conditioner. Thank God they allowed it or we'd be completely fucked!

- How the cats went a little bit nutty from the 95 degree temps in the house and then being locked in the basement for several (several) hours to keep them cool.

- How, even though I called in Thursday to say I may or may not be in to work, the company I was working for fired me and the temp agency will now never work with me again (that's right, I've been fired by a temp agency).

- How I fear that I totally sabotaged that job by possibly not making myself clear when I called in the first time and then resisting the later urge to call back and tell them I definitely wasn't coming in.

- How I've been repeating the mantra I make $100,000 a year 25 times a day for the past week, hoping it will come true by way of making me work harder...Or by magic, either way is fine with me.

What we will talk about is this...

God! These things are so good! We had the full sized ones sometime last year and I wasn't impressed. But, the minis? Somehow a thousand times more tastier. Yes, I said more tastier. You should eat these.

Can you teach me how to get fired? I want this unemployment compensation everyone else seems to get, but I never do.

stop feeling sorry for yourself. your life is what you create. you complain about being overweight, but you eat oreos. you complain about not having money, but get fired from temp jobs. you're not a victim- play an active role in your life.

I know my life is what I create. I freely admit I let fears and worries stop me a lot of the time. Also, I know I complain a lot. If you don't like it you can always opt not to read my blog.

One of the reasons I write this blog is so that everyone can see that they're not alone. I make mistakes and so do you Kristen.

Don't act like you're above the fray when you're a part of it like everyone else. Maybe you have a bit more control over your life, and if so, that's great. But don't pretend you don't make missteps or get in your own way sometimes.

It happens to the best of us.

'tine: Try not going to work and not calling in. That worked for me.
