Holy crap

I’m poor. I just worked out all our finances and whatnot. I shouldn’t do much of anything until I find more work. And to think there are birthdays and holidays and anniversaries upon us, it’s enough to make a happy gal weep.

I can’t do all the things I planned on doing. And that sucks.

  2. This is so sad. I hate it when you get a check and then it slowly goes away and you really have nothing to show for it. I hate that. And I hate that I can’t really get Toby a most superb birthday gift this year as I had wanted. And my father’s birthday is tomorrow and that’s not looking good either. Nico’s was last week and that’s come and gone. I am the worst wife/daughter/friend ever. This blows. Totally and completely meets up with raw suckage.

  3. I seem to forget that Xmas actually does come around every year, and then I don’t plan for it, and end up a mess in Decemeber, lasting till about April. :/

  5. I think I will find a job waiting tables or bar-tending. Maybe. I wonder if I can sell space, considering that’s all we have to offer right now. Well, that and a blow-up air mattress.

  7. i know how you feel… when i checked my account on friday i was more than $150 into my overdraft… and that was only 10 minutes after my paycheck was deposited. looks like no one’s getting anything for xmas… except maybe a lump of coal for me.

    damn rent, and bills, and booze.

  8. For real. I apparently need someone to tell me that buying a 25 dollar bottle of wine is a bad idea when you have no job. No more eating out at expensive restaurants, no more expensive books, no more movies and frivolous drives across the country. No more hookers and gambling, either. From now on it’s water and rice by candlelight.

  9. the money on our laundry card went down to 20 cents yesterday, so i have lots to wash.
    i can bring bailey as well, becuase it was decided she needs to get a job since she eats so much and requires so many new toys. we can hook a wagon up to her and she can help cart wet clothes around.

  10. I am sure your family and friends consider your ‘homecoming’ to be the best gift of all!

  12. A bottle of wine (from mihow) and my kids…what more could I want. We could celebrate the holiday in May in Disney.

  13. By then we’ll have money, too. (Note to self: Moving around the holidays isn’t the smartest thing you’ve ever done.)

  14. Um, I appear to have broken your website (see post before this one). I apologize profusely.

  15. heh. No worries. If Toby isn’t swamped all day, I’ll have him fix it. :] It probably has something to do with an ampersand. You are forgiven!

  16. Hey Mihow,

    I was going to send this in an email, but I can’t seem to find an address for you on your site. Anyway, in reference to one of your last posts about wireless internet, there is a great coffee shop called Atlas (on Havemeyer and Grand) that has free wireless.

    And as a side note, I’ve been reading your blog for about two years now, and I think it’s so cool you’re back in Williamsburg. We’re neighbors. Welcome back!

  17. Becca, thank you for that information. I actually think I might go hang out there today. That is if I can find it. And it’s great to be back in New York, I have to admit. This was the easiest move ever.
