So we are losing our roommate at the end of the month…which means no more $700+ a month for us to play with in regards to going out to eat, haha. It’s really better that way but damn do I wish we’d realized we were dropping so much whilst we still had someone living here, long enough to save up more $$$. Ahh well, that’s what we get.
We also now make too much for Medi-Cal…which means possibly WIC also. Makes me livid but I get it. The response from most is WELL you COULD work…uhm yeah, but we have an infant. WTF would I work when I am breastfeeding an infant? I shouldn’t have to. Just because my partner’s gross income is X doesn’t mean that’s the money we have free to play around with. That’s ridiculous.
Not Thrilled at having to put Oliver onto Kaiser insurance via his Papa, either, but it is better than nothing, I suppose. I like our clinic, though. SIGHS.
Amused by the sudden love of a local political candidate who was poo poo’d for backdoor dealings when she was vice mayor. BUT SHE IS A LABOR LEADER! OMGZ! uh, yeah…no excuses and there’s your reason WHY she was bein’ shady. DUH. :/ makes me sad. I remember being all about her until the dramarama.
And my friend tells me about other political drama re: Intel gathering etc, “domestic terrorizm”…sighs. Rinse n repeat. Yes I know the mass populace is not paying attention but come on, how stupid do you think we ALL are? we are paying some attention to sudden interest in our causes and how you push buttons to see if we react. And short term memories aren’t that Short. Ahem, Wounded Knee ‘73.
Sibling says write an advice blog. Maybe. We shall see.
She and I are supposed to be writing a book of poetry. need to get on that…make another blog for it or some such.
Bestie is driving ‘cross country, too. Looking forward to seeing him and showing off the baby.
Seeing a large group of friends tonight for a birthday love and baby showing off. should be fun.
laundry in the wash..need to clean the bathroom. Little Man is sleeping. Going to see Abuello tomorrow…long drive but worth it. THinking of asking to stop and see his other gramps (my dad) on the way home, but we shall see. long drive is long..home being so far away by the time we get to the 46 we may just keep going past it.
hmm, I need to continue to read CLEAN. getting healthy re: the partner, is a damn good thing to do…we will save money in the long run by eating better on the whole…problem is that pasta is so easy to cook. sighs. and veggies which are fresh go bad so quickly…rarr.
we’ll get there. so close yet so far.
