May has been suckish.
First, Carter’s been sick for about ten days. He smells like nasty sinus infection – even though he’s being treated.
Second, he decided to be sick on finals week… I’m pretty sure I did bad on all but one.
Third, we found out that the SSA is discontinuing Carter’s SSI check because we have two cars. We need two cars. I can’t help it that my car is $23 over the qualifying limit. Plus, it’s not even technically an asset. I owe TWICE what they value it. That’s $710 per month we’re losing.
Lastly, I found some things out today that I probably should’ve never known. I wish I didn’t. Because now what I thought about a piece of my history was a lie. One of my “relationships” was not formed based on my merit, but someone else’s opinion and as a “deal” for a new relationship to form. I tried being nice, but rubbing gravel on your skin only scratches it.
All of this just makes me so much happier to have Joe. Joe will never lie to me and never do anything in our relationship that is based on the opinion of an outsider. I feel so much more comfortable and secure with him than ever. I can be silly and stupid but accepted at the same time. It really is wonderful to have that in someone who is willing to sacrifice the world for us.
ON A GOOD NOTE: Today was the last final for me this semester!! I’m finally free – not with a degree – but I can’t afford to go back next semester! Lol
I’m going to spend this time cherishing Carter, cleaning house, making my own clothes, and knitting and baking my little heart out. Look out Martha Stewart.
