Here in this diary / I write you visions of my summer

Hey, so yeah... last night Kev dragged himself home from work at like, 6:30 and told me that as soon as I was back from teaching a Yoga class he had to go back to work. What is this world coming to when a man can't come home from work and STAY home from work?!

Wah wah wah, yeah I know Kev has a job and we're grateful that he does. But my gratitude has its limits. I cannot seem to be grateful that he works more than 40 hours a week BUT DOES NOT GET PAID FOR IT. How can I possibly be grateful when we're using our savings to pay bills because his paycheck is sometimes a complete joke? Oh yes, I should be grateful we have savings. And when Aspen asks why she can't go to college I'll just have to say "sorry kid, we had savings."

Sigh.

Being grown up isn't half as fun as growing up. You know who said that? The Ataris. I remember, back when I was growing up, going to one of their concerts for free because that's how awesome life is when you aren't yet grown up. Now the only free thing I do is go to the library each week and try not to get mugged.

Oh Ogden, I love you!

Okay, okay, enough of the facetiousness. We are a happy family, and we have enough food to eat and we have an awesome Tercel that gets about 100,000 mpg AND has working air conditioning and we have a Pink House to live in and Aspen is cute and ANTM starts up again tonight.

I'd say there are lots of good things in life, although some days Kev doesn't even get to see Aspen for a split second because his schedule is the worst thing ever.

How's your week going?

  2. Im sorry about Kevs job that totally has to stink. You are right about growing up so much more fun you dont have all the stresses of being a grown up/parent etc. Your great to find the positive things in life.

  3. Way to find the positives. That sucks. I totally hear you. It will get better. Hopefully sooner, rather than later. We will keep praying for you guys.

  4. I'm sorry, Liv. Working a ton while only being paid for part sucks. Tell him I sympathize. Have you guys thought about looking for another job? I've heard it's easier to get hired somewhere else if you're already employed. (It's that unemployment prejudice coming into play by people who hire -- stupid.)

    And yeah, I wish we were still "growing up."
