The budget is super tight for the next two weeks. I wasn't expecting to have a HUGE vet bill last month, and I really didn't want to dip into savings, so we are trying to make up the difference by not spending money on anything frivolous until John's next pay period. Gah. It really sucks knowing that despite the fact that he JUST got paid, we have absolutely no money until mid-month.
Porgie starts her ballet lessons next weeks. I am excited to get back into the swing of things. This summer seems like it has dragged on FOREVER. I know that most people lament the passing of summer, but I am ready for the Fall. I am ready for temperatures below 95 degrees. I am ready for sweaters and jeans. I am ready to hear the rustling of leaves in the wind. I am ready for a change.
I have been feeling like crap lately. I have been getting bad headaches, and I have no energy. I think I need to start taking a multi-vitamin or something. I feel so depleted.
My grandmother's birthday just passed. I wrote a lengthy post about her life, but then I ended up deleting it. Her story is not mine to tell - especially on the internet. My grandmother is such a strong woman. She has experienced more heartache than I can even bear to think about. But despite her trials, she still manages to be the loveliest, sweetest, and most optimistic person I know.
