The last couple of weeks have been a roller coaster. I've been stressed about money and wondering how I'm going to get through this month and next. It hasn't been easy, and I don't want to complain because I KNOW that I'm not alone.
The bright side of the last few weeks is that I've been promoted. (yay!!) I'm in a job that has turned into a career!! I'm finally stable enough that I can go back to school,and freaking FINISH!!!!!!! Things are finally starting to look up for me and my little one, my promotion comes with a raise and a bonus which is sorely needed right about now.
The downside to this financial slump other than the scrambling around of the last few weeks is that I'm going to have to postpone the trip to Las Vegas with my girlfriends in May to celebrate all of us turning 30 this year. I've been planning this trip for 2 years, and it seems like I'm the only person who is still excited about it. I think the economy has hit us all and no one wants to say they can't go or that they don't have the money. I found a really good deal on a hotel and all sorts of inexpensive things we could do for fun, but right now it's just not in the cards. I'm bitterly disappointed but at the same time I have come to realize that part of becoming an adult is realizing that you have to put your responsibilities ahead of what you want. I'm not thrilled about it, but the year isn't over yet and Vegas isn't going anywhere. I'm sure we'll make it there eventually. Fingers crossed.
