it's been since saturday...

...so here's a quick update on moi.

still sorta down-in-the dumps. the uncertainty of not knowing the outcome of the situation the hubs is currently facing is, i believe, slowly eating away at my insides. honestly, the feelings ebb & flow. why can't the people who need to be punished just get punished and leave the rest of us alone?

we're in budgeting hell. it sucks. even though adam & i both work full-time, our income is still less than half of what it was when we worked together. needless to say, with all of the aforementioned drama, what we have saved is slowly, er, quickly dwindling away. i'm currently looking for a second job - i don't know whether to be excited or scared.

even though we're budgeting, i really, really, really want to go on a vacation this year. just me & the hubs. every year we try to get away for a week - just the two of us. but, this year, that may not happen. unless i can land that second job thing & make it somehow all work out. of course, it doesn't help that the hotel we love to stay at while in playa del carmen, mexico has slashed their rates considerably. air fare is pretty damn cheap, too.

spring break starts this weekend which means i'll be kissing my kids good-bye for a whole week. woo hoo! seriously, am i the only parent on the planet that ships their kids off to grandma & grandpa's for the entire week of spring break? probably.

my friend, catrina, gave birth to a sweet baby girl on monday morning. she doesn't have pics up on her blog, but from the pics i saw on facebook her new baby girl is a cutie-patootie!

on of april 1st we'll finally have health & dental insurance...again. ha. we've been without it since late last year {again, ex-job-related drama}. maybe now i can get something to help me with my feeling of blah-ness {although i really don't think i need it}.

speaking of blah-ness, that was me sunday. all.day.sunday. that's what happens when you try to drown your mutha effin' sorrows in beer, lemon drop shots & who knows what other kind of shots {good lawd, did i really drink hpnotiq??}. i don't remember much. i threw up. a lot. i had to be brought home...no, no, carried home...to a worried husband {not a mad husband according to some reports} the next morning. i am not ashamed.

the weather is supposed to be super nice & i think it's finally stopped raining {for now}.

my office has free yoga classes every wednesday. i mean, it's already fabulous that there is a gym in the building, but free yoga classes, too? i really should take advantage of this. too bad work is a good hour away from home or else i would.

adam is currently snoring on the couch which means i can sneak into the bedroom and hog our king size bed. i have fleece sheets on the bed right now, too. oh, so cuddly & warm. i'm sure there will be a little black & white 'heating pad' at my side, too {frisco is quite the snuggler}.

i have made the decision to go through my crafting things & sell what i don't use/need anymore. i don't know if i'll do a blog sale or just get rid of it via ebay. it's mostly going to be scrapbooking stuff. lots of creative memories stuff that i've accumulated over the years. i'll keep y'all posted.

...i guess that's it so far. nothing new. nothing exciting. just me.

I'm thinking of you, my friend! I really hope it all gets out! I know how you feel about financial stress! That was how we were when my husband quit his job before he joined the Navy because of ridiculous issues. It sends my blood-pressure sky-rocketing and then puts me in a funk! So I relate and I'm here if you need an ear!

Hi Shell! Happy to be a new follower to your blog!

I too lived in Va Beach for a quite a few years and have great memories there. My favorites will always be Sandbridge/Pungo beaches and the sunflower and strawberry fields down there.

I am thinking of you and sending you warm happy vibes! Looking forward to reading more of your journeys ahead! :)
