Bosses just don't understand

So my new boss has been a bit picky on when he pays. He talks about how paydays normally are and all that jazz. That makes sense, however, when I was working as a temp, I made more per hour so I didn't need the money as soon. How do I tell this guy who goes out for extravagant dinners with his wife that he doesn't pay me enough to be solvent for a week lag time?

We are the Griswalds

Chris' car died. It probably needs a new alternator and battery. It's good that it's fixable, but it'll take all the money we were using for our weekend trip. Every time we have something planned, something breaks.

So now, I'm trying to find an alternative "fun" idea for this weekend. What would Clark do?

My husband earned Brownie points

Some days, Chris is a real PITA. Then he does things like totally neaten up the house and I remember what a gem he is.
Our house had gotten cluttered. Years of just putting stuff anywhere caught up to us. Chris decided it was time to change that and took charge of putting things in the attic and making everything look nice and neat.
We want to "upgrade" within a year or two. I've been working on decorating and now we have a spic n span house. Too bad we can't sell now!

One Happy Aunt

My goddaughter/niece is my buddy. We play and talk on the phone and have a grand old time.

Last Saturday, I was coming over to visit her. I guess she was all excited, since she told her Nana (my mom) that she was going to "see Missa". Then when I got there, the squeals and happy dances were a plenty.

Brooke calls all cars "choo choos". It's too cute.
Well when my mom visited, she and my sister and Brooke went to run errands. In their travels, they saw plenty of cars that look like mine. Every time, Brooke would point and ask "Missa choo choo?". Mom would explain that it wasn't me, but Brooke would insist it was. She would then ask Nana where Missa was. Talk about feeling the love!

I'm feelin' good

A fresh start is nice. I've started this new blog to focus on the positive. Too many days I spent looking at negative factors and it was hurting me. There are so many things to be thankful for, I just needed a reminder.

Chris and I have found a common ground on all things baby again and that is refreshing. I feel like a huge weight has been lifted from my shoulders.

I'm in a good job. It's been stressful changing and re-learning things, but it'll be worth it, I'm sure.

I see the light at the end of the tunnel. It has so many wonderful things. I'm on my way there and it's great.

It's a new dawn, it's a new day, it's a new life..and I'm feelin' good.
