And then it rained on my parade....

That last post, just a little while ago ended with hope. My hopes have been dashed. S was supposed to work until 4 tonight which left me a HUGE window to go for a walk before bed. Now she has to work until 9 :( So I'll have to load the kids into the double stroller and bring them with me. Not horrible but certainly not ideal. My walks are good "me" time.

After that walk I'll have to bundle them up again at 8:40 to go pick up S at work. No fun.

Then I get an email that the support group I attended to meet the last requirement of the bariatric surgery center wasn't really a support group. It was a "group" not a "support group" and therefore doesn't count. That means that I have to either attend one next Wednesday from 2-3 or wait until the first Monday in March. All of this means that everything is getting pushed back and that is so frustrating. I really want to go next Wednesday but am encountering problems. I found a sitter for little guy, phew. Big guy has school and, I just remembered, a field trip. Parents are supposed to provide field trip transport for their children. So I have to cross my fingers that another parent will take pity on him and bring him in their car and then find someone to pick him up after and babysit until I can pick him up. UGH.

Add to that the inspection sticker and registration on my car were due last month and we just don't have the money to do it, the court wants more money for my dad's estate filing fees, I am short money to cover big guy's preschool tuition this month, and while moving furniture around one of my bookcases started to fall apart.

Thinking positive just doesn't seem to be cutting it right now.....bah.


  1. Sometimes life is so hard...when it rains it pours. Keep chugging along-one minute at a time if you have to...

  2. Hang in there Colleen! Things are bound to get better ;)
