Well, 2 things really.
1.) We don't have a lot of money. It's a struggle most months to get everything paid. We really didn't need to get the dog flea medication and myself the high blood pressure medication this week. Well, we needed it, but it'll make things a tad tight.
And here I have friends saying that they got things for us. Really, you shouldn't have. Because I didn't. Hell, my mom and brother are getting gifts after the holidays (when things go on sale and we have some money). Now it gets awkward. You giving us stuff. Us keeping the dog from licking up your nose. Yeah....
I know that someday I'll be able to buy everyone something. I know that someday we won't have to chose between rent and my medication.
Though it won't be soon. No raises again. Thanks Governor.
2.) Eating. My father gave me a basket of sweet things. It was WONDERFUL. Emphasis on the word was....
I've lost weight the last few weeks. I firmly attribute this to not being able to afford snacks. Did I need all of those truffles this weekend? No. Did I enjoy them? Hell yes!!
We're off to visit the land of my birth this weekend. I will over eat. I will gain weight. What am I doing after I get back? Exercise. Lots and Lots of exercise.
Merry Christmas everyone!
