I'm a Californian! Get Me OUT OF HERE!
So, I was outside watering flowers and I was thinking to myself even though times are really tough financially in California right now I am so happy that my family has come together and stayed strong. We are still able to pay all our bills, and have found creative ways to save money...all in all we are doing ok. Yes, I still wish we had no furloughs and another 5% cut in pay lurking...and I really wish my sub job would call me sometimessssssss!!! Recently my husband got offered a job with weekends and holidays off (Arnold axed holiday pay anyway) so it will be so great....and it is great experience for future promotions.
Many of our friends are having marital and financial problems...it is heartbreaking to know that Arnold's cuts will end up destroying more than a few families. I wonder if the cuts will be worth it....less income for families to pay necessary bills, minimal money going into the economy, bankruptcies, home foreclosures and so on...
I have two incredible kids at home, they make me laugh throughout the day and are the most important people on Earth to me. I'm proud of my husband for picking up overtimes (which cost the state more money and are only available b/c of furloughs????) so that we don't have to stress whether or not our bills are paid. He is a hardworking man and doesn't always get the credit he deserves. I have a lot to be happy and thankful for even in these hard times.
Back to me having deep thoughts outside....so as i'm pondering all these things....a bug flew into my mouth. I then began to stop having deep thoughts and started coughing and spitting all over the place. I may have swallowed it, I'm not sure....of all places why did it choose to fly into my mouth...omg I just threw up a little. Even though Murphy's law loves to invade my life....I will keep fighting it :D
