What have I been up to since I last came around waaay back in November? Everything and nothing at the same time. Do you ever feel like that? Just busy and overwhelmed while still accomplishing almost absolutely nothing? Because that's how I feel right now. And for a while. I'm in a rut, I think. That or I should just take up drinking as a hobby.
We just bought a new home, and while I love it, I could almost swear to you that it's cursed. Or that it has cursed our lives some how. There are so many things that need to be done, all of them are expensive and we don't exactly have the budget to cover $5k+ worth of updates, changes, and fixes. And of course, the problem is that neither of us has the patience to wait until we do have an extra $5k in between our couch cushions. So we wait and we stress. And we stress some more. And then when we do have extra money to get the pool refinished/a new couch/the siding fixed/a new garage door/what have you, then we file our taxes and owe the IRS a bajillion dollars for the first time ever. Thanks America. Or we have to get $800 brakes for our car. In the same month. I wish I was exaggerating. Goodbye money. Goodbye hopes and dreams for our new home. Hello ramen noodles and depression.
Sorry my first post back is a total downer, but... UGH. That's all I have left in me. I'm ready for 2013 to be over already. Give me my 2012 back. Give me some happy pills. Funny story- when I'm on the phone, I doodle. This is what I doodled yesterday:
Yup, that pretty much sums it up.
Anyone else out there having a rough start to 2013? I want a redo.
