This Ish is Hard...

I have been MIA for a while. Still 'borrowing' internet from the neighbors, working 40+ hours a week.... I'm exhausted.

How do women do this? I'm new to this whole Single Mom thing, and it's just pure insanity. Maybe it's because I haven't gotten my babies on a routine yet, maybe it's because I've only been doing this for almost two months now, but good gracious does it ever get easier?

And dating? HA! When is there time, or energy for that? I'm thinking it'll be a while before my poor vag sees the light of day again...

I know this post isn't much. I do apologize so much for not being a regular part of the blogging world. I think I'm gonna see about getting some internet today so that I can lay in bed and post regularly once again.

Just stay with me, Inklingers. I'll be back into the swing of things soon, I promise!!!

No, Mommy Didn't Steal Anything

Just getting home from the grocery store, I'm unpacking the few things we bought, and I hear my daughter whispering to my son. Then my little boy yells out, 'Mommy stole it??' What? Mommy stole nothing. What the hell is she telling him?

'Mommy stole what, sweetheart?'
'The cream cheese. Sissy said you stole one.'

Ahh, time for a crash course in sales and couponing, I see. And, for a little lesson in morals, too, I soon realize.

Money is tight right now; really, really tight. In fact, the money I currently have isn't mine; thank goodness I have friends who care about me. I don't get my first paycheck until Friday, and it will be for one day of work; probably a measly $60-$80. Two weeks after that I'll only be getting a half of a paycheck, because I'm only doing training right now, which means I'm getting around 20 hours a week instead of 40. So, my first full paycheck, and finally some normalcy and routine in my life and my kids' lives, won't come until April. In times like these, you do what you need to. No, that does not mean steal cream cheese. I'll explain, just as I had to do with my kids, because at the moment, they had some radical idea built up in their heads and Mommy wasn't being painted in a great light.
