I can’t afford it.

We’ve all heard the saying fake it til you make it..

That’s exactly what I’m doing since I can’t afford to pay my gym membership this month.

I’ve created my own gym…

Not pictured is my baby who’ll be used as weights and the jump rope I happened to stumble upon while doing my last load of laundry (I can’t afford detergent now either and I’ve run out of the samples I scored at the store).

Thing 1’s birthday is coming up. I’ve always been able to get her weird, crazy, silly gifts some too old for her age like the huge gum ball machine I got her when she turned 3, trips to children museums that required road trips…

I’d be lying if I said I woke up in the cheerful optimistic mood I promised on taking. Looking for the good in my situation seems like too much work today.

So again, if you don’t have to worry about what you’re going to eat next week, be thankful even if it’s not November anymore. Appreciate what you have, even if it seems small, every damn day.

Yellow tag road.

Came home to find this on my door…

I see a lot of these in my future. Going to do the only thing I can do. Go to the gym and cook something healthy. If you’re lucky enough to have money in your pocket and bank account, be thankful. Not all of us are fortunate enough to be able to go grocery shopping without regrets. Damn you and all your goodies Trader Joe’s.
