The First Week of May

Or maybe I should have titled this post "The Good, The Bad and The Ugly".

In the past 7 days our family has experienced:

  • an out of town, day long funeral and reception
  • DD2 had food poisoning
  • then I found critters in her hair
  • only one evening meal made at home this week
  • an opportunity to make some more money, that I had to turn down
  • another opportunity to make some 'snowflakes'
  • bought some not real silver, silver dollars for Cub at the bank
  • paid off one of the debts
  • Hubby got a super low pay cheque
  • which resulted in heading right back into overdraft :(
  • had Hubby take coffee from home every morning this week
  • had Cub ask to sit on the potty, even though he didn't do anything but sit
  • didn't go to the yard sale due to incorrect weather forecasts
  • had only one no spend day since Monday, if you don't count an overdue bill being paid
  • planned out Side Hustle #2 sales so that I can double my CC debt payment this month
*Looking up to Sky-world, Eboo prays: Dear Creator, I know you will not give me more than I can handle. Please know that I am close to my breaking point. This is typical for me this time of year, which I now recognise. But could you please go easy on me for awhile? Thank you and Amen!*


  1. ouch! the first week of May sure ganged up on you. Hopefully the critters leave soon and the second week of May is better for you.

  2. Amen Sister!
    You are doing great even though lots of turbulence is around you...I will pray for you too!

  3. I'm right there with you praying that prayer! The month can only get better, right? Happy Mother's Day to you, my friend!


  4. Awww... When it rains, it pours doesn't it?! Hang in there!! Hugs!

  5. Oh Eboo, so sorry to hear about your rough patch. (though thankfully a few positive moments occurred also)I hope the pendulum has swung as far as it can go and starts to come back into more favorable territory PDQ!!

  6. hang in there, this too shall pass
