Still Alive

I know, I know, I know. I do have a wee bit to update on. For the first week in August, I was traveling about with man and child to various family, and then a week was spent in the City sans insta-family with the main purpose of arranging a bachelorette and attend a wedding. No fears... that update will be coming...

For now, I hate money. I have started back at work preparing for the approaching school year. Only 2 weeks left, kiddies. You can run, but you can't hide. *insert maniacal laughter* Anywho, I still don't get my first paycheque until Sept. 15th. For those keeping track, that would be 2 1/2 months without income. *sighs* It's easy to say that money doesn't matter when you still have some. *shrugs* No biggie. Things have been tight, but we survive. I had a $5000 line of credit that I was going to use for some house stuff, and I've been using that for bills and spending instead. I was going to pay myself back, and paint a bit later...

... until I got a notice that taxes are due. A shade over $2000 by Sept. 30th. *gasps* Might as well have said, "Congrats on your new home, you sucker! We now have you by the proverbial testicles."

On the upside, my boytoy got sole full custody of the little hellion. *grins* So, it is all legal, besides owing the lawyers an additional $700. *growls* As well, I think I may have found Baby J an at-home daycare starting Sept. 12th. Which is good, since I am starting to have some issues where he is now...

And, to treat myself, (and I notice you feel the need to spend money when you have none), I have selected the automatic payments in Live Journal to keep my ramblings secure and get the lovely deal of 3 months free. *rolls eyes* BUT, I decided to splurge the extra $10 USD a year for more user pics (the little cutie that I have with my posts). So, instead of 15 to pathetically express myself, I have 100 possibilities!!! Hopefully, that means that you can expect more creativity, though slight, as time passes. If I ever get my arse in gear....
