I am working really hard to stay positive. It is an uphill challenge right now. Oh nothing horribly wrong is going on, just those little things that add up until you want to scream!
I am close to screaming!!
First off, good news. I have my etsy shop open. I don't know if you noticed or not, but I have a tab that will take you straight to my shop. I know most of you are sewers and could make these doll clothes, but perhaps you know someone who doesn't sew or who wouldn't want to work with small patterns. I would appreciate your looking at the shop and passing the information on to anyone you can think of. Thanks so much. You all are great!
Now to something that may make me scream!
As you know, The Baby just went back to school for her Senior year. I am so happy she will graduate soon and I know she will work hard at any job she gets. Here is what is making me crazy. Her tuition went up over $5000.00!!! Part of that is for classes, part for food and part for room. The Baby is a vegetarian and has had to supplement her diet with food she has to purchase on her own. They do not cook for vegetarians. We were promised there would always be a good meal for her every night! The second thing is where she lives. The school built a new 5 million dollar dorm. The Baby has elected to stay in an older apartment building because it has a full kitchen and she can cook for herself (remember, they don't feed her properly) She is a resident assistant, which means her room is paid for and in return she agrees to be on duty and make sure all hell doesn't break out. This is a good thing, but now the apartments where she lives are infested with roaches, her internet is no where to be seen, and she is expected to put in more hours and walk across the campus at 3:00 a.m. to pull rounds! Who makes a young, pretty woman walk alone at that time of the morning?!?!?
I have never been a helicopter mom, but I can promise you this. I am so close to becoming one. I am not a happy camper at this moment.
Here is a little thing that is currently driving me crazy. I am trying to find new blogging friends and build viewership of both of my blogs. I spend a lot of time visiting and commenting and few if any ever respond. I am beginning to think I should just give up!
Oh well, I am sure all will work out. I say my affirmations and try to keep upbeat!
Sorry for going on, but thanks for listening. Tomorrow will be better. I promise. I am off to get some sewing done, that will make me happy!
Pin It Now!
