Well it has been a hell of a week…
I got laid off and although I still have an income because of employment insurance, it makes it harder.
Lately I have had to forego a lot of the stuff that is extra. The biggest one for me has been that there are fewer visits with the family.
I miss everyone so much and that makes me miss the moments. The funny moments, the happy moments, the sad moments – all the moments that I think about at the end of a long day.
I miss my mom’s healing hugs. I miss getting attacked by the younger nieces. I miss the cuddles with my little nephew. I miss my older nephew being a butt. I miss my other niece being a sass – and it goes with out saying that I miss my sisters and all the stuff we get up to.
But on the upside, having less has taught me a lot.
I am way better at budgeting monies! I found ways to stretch the nickles out more and cover the bills and still get the little treats like a cup of Tim’s.
While growing up sucks more the older you get I still am okay with the hard things because these are the lessons.
Lessons that last a lifetime and help you grow into the future.
