Trying to figure out where to trim the fat on the bills is getting hard. Internet is a must for my jobs, but we keep having to upgrade bc we keep going over our bandwith. From $60 to $80 to now $95 a month. Idk if DH will like it, but I may impose a time limit for Netflix. He has that thing going from the moment he wakes up to when we go to bed. Half the time he's not even actively watching it, its just on for noise while he plays on Steam... which is another bandwith hog.

OK, I get the McDonalds toy thing, but seriously? If teenagers are determined to make a difference, why not address the governmental corruption, the ill decisions made by corporations that destroy lives? Or the justice system that better protects the felons than the victims? I hardly think a small child will be affected by being asked "girl or boy" as much as the country and world will be affected by the bigger issues out there. Are we really so spoiled as to think that toys are an issue? It's no wonder other countries hate us when we complain about gender specific TOYS, or how long our fast food takes to be delivered, when others are just trying to survive to the next day.

Ugh... Dh tells me tonight he finally figured out what tattoo he wants to get next and tomorrow wants to swing by the tattoo place and get a quote, and get a quote for the 2 I want too. I said no, and he goes "well i'm not going to make an appointment... Just want to know how much to save..." And I asked him if he listens to me. He is in the process of getting out of the army for medical reasons and we need to build a savings (the last 3 times I tried he drained it pretty damn quick) before he gets out. We also need to pay off a loan and I'd like to pay off most of our credit cards as wellso we have them for an emergency. We are currently getting an extra $600 a month thanks to paying off other loans and we are still broke. Knowing how much the tattoos we want will cost, or how much it'd be to tint the windows of our car... Two minutes later he mentions that our checking account is in the negatives and I say "yet another reason we don't need tattoo quotes..." And he gets mad, says I don't need to rub it in... That he "gets it" if that were the case we wouldn't have had, literally, the exact same conversation that we had last month about him telling me to call around to see how much window tinting is.

OP here with the car issues. It was looked upon by the lead technician who replaced one of the ECT sensors and spliced the wire connector. My service rep told me she had taken care of the fees, including the rental car (2013 Honda Civic). I was speechless. She said she did this because she wanted help and because I was nice. I am forever grateful for her help.

Finally decided to follow up about the food truck job 2 weeks later just for closure. They wrote back with an official invite to join the team. Um...what?! Not sure what to think.

As irrational as this sounds, I am not paranoid about getting my tax return, we owed a bit, and I'm paranoid that the check has not been deposited! Why does my mind go to crazy scenarios? We use a professional preparer and aren't doing anything shady. Grew up in a house where my Dad was very afraid of the IRS.

Oh boy. New coworker really likes to hear herself talk. We were just in a meeting, where I said "We don't usually use that wide of a date range because of panel churn." Coworker felt the need to pipe up and add "Yeah, because the panel has a lot of changes, all the time. Someone who is in the panel one day might not be next week, or..." for 5 minutes. Even the CEO couldn't stop stop her from talking, even though he was tried a half dozen times. Jeez lady, shut up! Explaining an idea when no one was confused by the summary is just annoying.

My fireplace mantel and wall isn't straight across, but more of a zig zag shape. I'm having a frustrating time decorating. I want it to look balanced and not cluttered, but no matter what I try, it's never a comfortable look. Grrr.

I was doing some charity work and I was tasked with cleaning the tile floors. So, I got the bucket and my knee pads and started scrubbing. About half way through, the site director looked at me horrified and pointed at the mop. I hate mops with a passion. I think they're germ infested and funky. When I told her I didn't mind scrubbing, she offered to pay me to clean her floors at her home. Lol…pass

TMJ. Ouch. Jaw is sore, ears hurt, my whole mouth & neck & ears are just uncomfortable. I need a muscle relaxer but I don't have any left and I don't want to go back to the doctor. Also I have cramps. *Cry* My ears hurt bad and I wanna go home. And I want a pill. And my bed. And my dog.
