Rain rain go away

I. am. so. sick. of. rain.

Today is the first day in two weeks that we didn’t have to get up early and hustle out the door to camp. I figured we would sleep in–which is to say, Chickadee and I would sleep in while Monkey would slide into bed with me at his usual time but be placated with Disney Channel–and then come up with something fun that we could do today at a leisurely pace.

Thanks to a weekend with Fun Daddy and a grey dawn, both children slept quite late. We’re all up now… sorta… and we’re all cranky. The children are annoyed that they can’t go out to play. I am being followed around by a cartoonish ticking bomb which taunts me with my continued conundrum: Preschool tuition is due in two weeks. Two weeks. I can take a job someplace like Target and every penny I earn will go directly to school, or I can hold out for a decent-paying job and try to figure out how to pay the bills in the meantime.

This little game of financial roulette is wearing me out.

But, it is what it is (as a wise friend of mine is prone to declaring). It can’t rain forever and I won’t be unemployed forever. It just feels that way. Why yes, I would like some cheese with my whine, thank you so much!

Do me a favor and spread a little cheer today. Go on over to The Mommy Blog and wish the fabulous Mindy a very happy birthday!
