I Am Going To Make It Through This Year If It Kills Me

I am sure many of you who have been reading this blog for the past few months are sick of my whining. I may have come off like I hate my life. I do not.
It has been a hard six months- the hardest thing I have ever done actually. Couple that with financial worries, selling our house (we finally had an offer but had to short sale the house because we had to lower the price so much we didn't want to owe money on a house we didn't own) having NO health insurance now that we moved to a new house in a new state and I think I am entitled to a bad month. Or two. Or four.

February is the worst month of the year for me. I get into my winter blues and can't seem to shake them. It would make a great time of year to go on vacation, if I had the means and this year I do not.

I see the light at the end of the tunnel though. E and I are living under one roof and shared parenting is such a treat. I seriously do not know how single parents do it. Do. Not. Know.
We can start to fix our credit that took a huge hit with E losing his job, and having to do the short sale of our house. We can make more money with E's new job but it will just take a year or two to see the financial rewards. My kids seem happy here.
We have gone down the dark roads, and now the sun has started to creep up on our horizon.

It will be good.

This has been my mantra for the past six months and will continue to be. I hope it can help you get through a hard day, month or year when you need it too:


  1. you have a right to whine. And your blog is an outlet for that. If it was bothering us, we wouldnt come back lol! whine away!!

    Im glad though that you are seeing some light at the end of the tunnel.

  2. Heya. I'm pretty new to your blog, but I just wanted to offer a virtual pat on the back. It sounds like you are entitled to more than your fair share of whining. What a rough time! But I'm glad things are settling in. Welcome to New England. :-) (She says from Massachusetts...)

  3. You're on the upswing now!

    I hope that health insurance kicks in soon with your hubs's employer.

  4. Hang in there, and don't let anyone tell you not to whine. You are entitled.

    We just finally climbed out of debt from four years ago when I had to go on bed rest (loss of income) when I was pregnant.

    I'm sending good vibes your way!

  5. You've had perfectly acceptable cause for some whining! Heck, I know I've whined because of far less last year and part of this one! This year can definitely look up now that you have things falling back into place. I'm going to use your mantra, too!

  6. No insurance since E and his cousin are working on their own! We will have to wait to he makes more moolay to afford Insurance on our own and that will cost us probably $800 a month. EEK.

    GIP- thanks for the welcome!

  7. I think it's in the air...this kind of blech malaise exhaustion frustration.

    Whine away. You've earned it. I know I have.

    Plus. I like whiners. Just don't tell my kids!

  8. February is always the worst month for me as well. It's the month where my depression tries to come back. I think it is that way for lost of people. Hang in there.
