Getting Frustrated

Sunday, January 07, 2007


Tomorrow's my next hearing with the Labor Board. Please, cross your fingers, think good thoughts, say a prayer for me. I'm hoping to get word of when I might see my money. God knows we need it. I was hoping that this year would start off on a better foot for us, but it seems not. We're doing our best, and stretching our money pretty tight. Finding ways to cut corners, juggling bills, trying to find ways to make some money on the side. Johnny's probably gonna start doing some tattoo work. Hopefully that pans out. We're just ready to get back on our feet...

Just to let you all know, I've started another blog - A Year In Pictures. The link is on my sidebar, or you can click here. Be sure to save it and come back often - I'll try to commit and upload a photo a day. Thanks Lindi for the challenge. And thanks to all the other ladies that are participating too. I can't wait to see everyone's pictures!

Just a little something

A song that I love by the Cure. Re-done by Katie Melua. You can hear her version in the film "Just Like Heaven". Love the song. Love the movie. Just love it.

Goodbye 2006!

And good riddance!! I've had the worst year of my life and I'm looking forward to putting it behind me.

The one good thing that happened this year was that I met Johnny - the man I love! Yay for me. I never would have thought that David leaving would have a good outcome, but it sure did. Funny that you can't see the mountains when you're so deep in the valley, and I never would have expected to meet someone so sweet, funny, and caring as Johnny... Boy, I'm glad I did because I couldn't imagine being without him....

I'm looking forward to 2007 and getting back on our feet. I hope and pray that there are great things in store for us, because after the hell we've been through this year (financially), we deserve to come out on top.

So here's my year in review:

January - I started a new job
I became single after 7 years

May - I met Johnny :o)

May - September - Payroll issues

August - Went to Michigan and got to scrap with lots of wonderful ladies!!

September - Lost my job and still hadn't been paid in 2 months
Electricity was shut off
Turned the ex-boss into the Labor Board

October - Got a temp job

November - Turned 25
Water was shut off
First Labor Board hearing - he didn't even show up
Found out that my temp job will always be a temp job (they don't hire their temps)
Our first Thanksgiving together

December - Our first Christmas together
Cable/Internet shut off
Celebrated our 6 month anniversary

So, it's been a crazy year and I'm hoping that 2007 brings many many changes for us. I've got my next hearing with the Labor Board on Jan. 8th and I'm hoping it brings good news for me... And I've got my eyes peeled for a new job, something closer to home so that I'm not spending so much time and money being out on the road every day.

We're going to spend the evening surrounded by our friends, ringing in the new year with the ones we love. Here's hoping that you do the same, and have a safe and blessed New Year. Love you all *hugs*

Some days

Some days I just wanna pack up my Johnny and my babies and go.... go somewhere far, far away from here. Get away from everything. Leave behind the cell phone so I don't get any more calls from creditors. Leave behind all the bills I can't pay. Leave behind all the drama and chaos. I can't take anymore. I just wanna go....

Christmas Re-Cap

All went well, rather smoothly, without too much craziness or drama.... We ended up with 17 people and 4 dogs at our house on Christmas day (3 of them ours - but Molly has a new little boyfried!!) Tons of food, tons of catching up, tons of family and friends. We had a great time but I was completely exhausted by the time everyone left and I got the kitchen cleaned up.... I was in bed at 9! The bad part was that I had to get up and work the next day...

Johnny goes to the dentist tomorrow to have 2 molars pulled, a root canal and a crown put on.... My poor honey. He's been in such pain for months and now he finally went in to the dentist and that's the verdict. And $1800 later.... Thank God for payment plans... Somehow, we'll manage. We'll just be living even tighter....

I keep meaning to sit down and do a "year in reveiw" kinda post, but don't seem to find the time when I'm at home.... always something else to do to keep me busy. I hope everyone had a great Christmas and if I don't post back before New Years.... Have a safe, wonderful and happy New Year!!!!
