Feeling Worn Out

Gift cards are how I keep track of how much I spend on books a month. If I added $20 to my gift card, once that balance is gone, I am done buying books for the month.

It has been such a long month.  So many not good things have happened in June/July that I just feel like I have been sucked dry.  Nothing left to give.  Don’t want any more bad news.  I think it is about time things started turning around.


The other day the school gave me a rude awakening to the end of our summer.  They sent out registration emails.  The three oldest are all registered for school and Nano is off to preschool this fall.  I wonder if that’s why I’m feeling so down in the dumps?  My baby is going to preschool. Or maybe it’s the thought of stuff that needs bought still.

  • School clothes and backpacks for all 4
  • School supplies for the oldest 3
  • All 4 need need new soccer gear and Nano needs the whole uniform
  • Alyce is moving up in dance and needs new tan tap shoes and clothes/shoes for hip hop class

Add in my husband’s car needs new brakes and is at the mechanic now and I think we are going to be tightly strapped for awhile. 

I think it’s actually Nano going off to preschool that is doing it for me.  He’s my last baby.  This preschool is 4 days a week, a few hours a day, but still.  I’m not ready for him to grow up and go off to school on me. 

Mom, I was putting my cereal on the counter
and it fell off and splashed all over

Look at that face.  Why can’t we keep them small forever?

I think I forgot to take my anti-depressant the last few days.

I got off my schedule when Nano was in the hospital and I’m really feeling it.

We are going to turn this mentality around.  Or I am. I’m gonna try.

I’m going to get my kids outside playing (if the humidity doesn’t kill me first) and take some pictures so they can run off some energy and BONUS! I’ll have something happy to blog about. 

For my #FridayReads, {embarrassed}, I am still working on this posts’ Friday reads. I just have not had time with everything that has been happening. I am going to read today. I need it.

Make sure you check out the Summer Kindle Fire Giveaway and Fae Books 4K Likes Giveaway. The Fae Books one, one of the prizes come from moi. I was really excited for Sarah to get up there at 4K likes on Facebook. That’s a moment!
