So I took Tuesday off work. My boss told me I needed a mental health day. I couldn't agree more. Although all I did was eat and sleep.

My visit to the gyno was lovely. I know this sounds strange but having gone to planned parenthood for 3 years, it's a welcome thought to have gone to a place where the dr spent 15 minutes talking to me, and didn't walk in and say "take off your clothes".

While I have put on weight in recent weeks, the dr was impressed that I'd lost so much weight since my last visit. She told me years back I had to lose at least 10lbs cus my ueterus was falling. It was more official than that, but you get the picture.

Going from eating primarily fruits/veggies and turkey to eating mostly carbs because its all I can afford, has made a huge impact on my weight loss efforts. I know people say all the time you can eat healthy cheap, but I'm far too picky for that. I don't like canned or frozen veggies much, and I'd rather eat cheese and bread. If I have fresh, I would opt to eat that over the bad stuff.

I got my tire off yesterday, for $16. They put my donut on, and I have to wait 2 wks til I can hopefully afford to get my older tire remounted and put on.

I also have to cancel my hair appointment this weekend. It's been almost 2 months since ive had it cut. And soon, my roots will take over my head. I don't like this slumming it business, feeling like crap doesn't mean you have to look like it too.

Reason 349.567,823 not to have kids. I'd be way, way more poor than I am now if I had other mouths to feed, that said things like "this is crap" and "im not eating that". Reason 567,890 not to have kids, I'd smack the shit out of their ungrateful asses. Reason #1 not to have kids...I'd wind up in jail.

In other news. I'm still in love with my cute manfriend, and I get to see him tonight, and when I'm with him everything feels just fine!

Sounds like we are in the same financial situation right now... and I do have that kid to take care of! :-) Our September Horoscope says our financial situation is supposed to improve in the next couple months! Let's keep our fingers crossed!

you know what sucks a lot? not having kids but financially helping support a child (my husband has a daughter) so we're quite broke. i'm always imagining if we didn't have to pay that money, we'd do alright.
