Things Have Not Been Going As Planned.

My life is a mess. Seriously.

The last two months (Sept and August) nothing has been going according to plan. Back to school has been killing my finances, what little I have to deal with right now, and Murphy’s Law has been in full effect as well, especially here in September.

The housing situation has been a complete and total mess, and winter is fast approaching. We’ve been working on getting a furnace in here since May, and it was going well, and then it seemed to have sunk just days ago. Every time things seem to start going my way, things get even more complicated around here! Moving is becoming more and more a possibility, as this place apparently has more issues than was known, which is biting us in the ass with everything else.

I am literally about to lose my shit.

On top of that, I’ve been dealing with what I call my “change of season flu” and feeling pretty damn miserable and fairly close to non-functioning when I’m not busy. And I am busy, dealing with all the housing drama, family drama and all the fun stuff of being the mom taxi of a high school student and cheerleader. Who now has a job to eat up some more of my time, but hey, she has to learn somehow.

So nothing has been going to plan. In fact, I feel like I’ve been sleeping the last two months.

I’m not even sure if I can dig my way out of this mess. Due to various reasons, some bills didn’t get paid, so things are going to be chaotic with my finances when I need to be saving more so I can get out of here. I need to make more, but that is semi on hold until I can function for more than a few moments at a time. Things are just not going well right now in general, but it will even out eventually.

I just have no clue where I’m going to end up when life decides to spit me back out.

Never miss a thing!
