Whine: $$$$$

So, while I sit, waiting for my mom's procedure to be done, might as well blog, right?

This a.m., I started selling some stuff on eBay. Me, the consumnate pack rat is trying to get rid of something. Taking a page from the book of Pooh (Melanie, not Winnie), figured I might as well give it a try, because earning even an extra dollar is worth the try.

Speaking of, I've been applying for random part-time jobs. How random? Try UPS, American Textile, Giant Eagle, Yellow Cab, and some TSS provider on Craigslist. Of course the warehouse-y jobs that I would rather work night-turn at, aren't calling me. Overqualifed, blah blah blah. The TSS provider (Southwestern Human Services) has called though. Don't really wanna be a TSS, but I gotta do something and we all know that kids are my life! We're not even gonna discuss how much debt I'm in, but just suffice it to say that its much worse than it was and that if I can get to the point where I can afford bankruptcy, I might finally do it.

I don't know anyone else who let's money affect their mood the way that I do. I mean, I can be on top of the world, but let me be broke without money to buy food, and I'm immediately down in the dumps.

Which brings me to my new plan. Its called "Eat Within My Means". Hopefully, this will not only save me some money but also help me to drop some lbs.

Prayer: Dear God, as I undertake this effort to improve the stewardship of the money you've given to me, help me to be grateful and stay encouraged. For there are numerous individuals who have so much less than me but do so much more with it. As always, help me to be a shining light, brightly showing others Your goodness and grace. In the name of Jesus Christ I pray, Amen!

*Happy Sigh*
I feel better already!
