God forbid you learn what it it like to be a single parent, without someone else(your parents, your exes) taking care of YOUR kids' dinner, clothes, homework, and general wellbeing. Because, boo, you worked all week and you're "lonely" so YOU "deserve" to go out all weekend and drop your kid off on someone else and complain they don't meet the schedule of YOUR latest **** buddy.

God forbid you now have to pay your own bills with your cushy salary job. "No money"...just enough to go out all the time.

God forbid you have to learn to be comfortable in your own skin and stand up for yourself and not risk emotional suicide, STDs, or pregnancy because, boohoo, you're LONELY and you should be able to do whatever you want! -Including pawn your kid off on others who love HIM..not you.

You know, I have my own **** to deal with, no doubt everyone does. Difference? I love my life, despite my shifty health and broke status. I have a guy that loves me and will do anything for me. I have an amazing stepson I will cherish and love forever, and do my best to raise into a gracious, kind, educated, tolerant, intelligent man. I have a roof over my head, a great job, food on my table, my bills paid. I love myself, and I have no regrets in my life. Not even you. I can live with the choices I've made. Can you?

How come when I used to work Saturdays, and have Sundays off, all the fun things were on Saturdays...and now that I work Sundays, and have Saturdays off, all the fun things are on Sundays? Makes no sense!

I don't understand how you forget that you need a full sheet cake until an hour before you need it.

Breaks my heart.
I'm sorry We're going up to see Zach's grandfather next weekend, and I think it may be the same story. It's awful.

Thanks Cali. It's really rough.

I just put away the exact amount into my savings account that I will now need to pull out to buy new tires unexpectedly. I feel like I will NEVER buy a house at this rate because the last 6 months have been full of unavoidable emergency expenses and I'm not putting away near as much as I want.

I'm on vacation for 2 weeks, and all I can think about is I wish Zora were here. Darn furry creatures find a way into your heart way too fast. At least there's an adorable black lab here

Paid the withdrawal fee at an ATM then came across my bank's ATM two minutes later. Darn it. Also wont get my nifty fifty back for 3 weeks, ugh. But camera store people were super awesome and its fun to bop around Boston. Still sad without my lens.

This is exactly what it's like when you have a house.
"Yay I finally have some money! Oh wait. What's broken? And that costs how much? Great."

Don't get me wrong, buying a house is still better than renting.

You just get used to not having any money.

LOL for sure. This year everything costs $800:

- Spring: Tree removal/limbing up = $800
- Summer: Bat removal = $800
- Fall: new brakes+ registration for my car = $800 (not house related, but still)

Guess how much the fence I want will cost? $2400. Guess how much we spent on house and car stuff this year? $2400. Guess when I'm getting my fence? NEVER. Argh.
