I am starting to hate this month. First, my client who is my second job was hospitalized and I did not work my second job for 4 weeks. Ouch! Second, I have 3, yes count them 3, cars that have tags due in Dec, 2 of which also need a smog check this year. Third, Propane went up again and I just spent $300 for less than half a tank ($3.89/gal). Fourth, one of my student loan payments doubled this month. fifth, I am unexpectedly bringing my horse back home and now need to buy material to build him a shelter and my truck has a blown head gasket. This means I have to buy cubes instead of baled hay for him. 100lbs of cubes $28.00, 95lb bale of alfalfa $17.00. Then to top it all off we hit 25 degrees last night and I came home this morning to a broken pipe that looks to have been leaking for a minimum of 24 hrs. There goes the water bill. TBG leaves for work at 6:30 am and doesn't get home until after dark. I checked the extension cords we have but unfortunately they won't cover the 2 acres to the leak. This means it will have to wait until Friday to be fixed. So right now the water is off and we will be scheduling baths instead of showers and also fill the kitchen sinks to do dishes at the same time. Right now I am going to sit and count my blessings, of which I have many. I will not focus on the negative things. My first blessing for the day. The pug has decided it's to early to get up and is perfectly happy being a foot warmer right now. On that note I am going to go to sleep for at least an hour today.
