My freshman year of college, my group of friends created our own sorority: Beta Scrapa Pi or Barely Scraping By. We were a very clever bunch. It was the first time in our lives we couldn’t just bum $20 off our parents. We had to manage our own finances and make do with what we had. We were all broke most of the time.
That’s how I feel this week. I’m Beta Scrapa Pi. Financially, we’re fine. Physically, mentally and emotionally, I’m spent. It’s busy time at work. Monkey Boy has lots of end of school year stuff going on. Have I mentioned a tree fell on our house?
I ended up at the doctor yesterday. I have an ear infection in both ears and a sinus infection, which explains why my face hurts. The steroids and antibiotics are helping. I’ll be fine by tomorrow. Today, I’m just whining because it’s my blog so I can.
I’m trying to focus on gratitude: my family is safe and together; I will get a new kitchen; it’s all gonna be ok. But I’m all out of good attitude, and I never had a pioneering spirit.
On the bright side, I’m full up on crazy, so we’ve got that going for us.
