Summer lovin’ had me a blast. Summer lovin’ happened so fast.
Oh, sorry. Thought I was in a Grease sing-a-long for a minute there.
Sometimes I hate my life. I hate certain things that happen, I hate that Joe’s car and job suck. I hate that we can’t afford to figure out why his back hurts so much and why it’s hard for him to walk sometimes. I hate that I don’t make enough money on my own to pay all our bills so he wouldn’t need to work such a crappy job and would be able to find one he loves.
I hate that I feel stuck.
Then, I remember that other people have it much worse than I do. Sure, we are slightly poor, but we have a roof over our heads and we’re able to pay our bills and afford luxuries, like cable. We may never be able to afford to have children, but we have each other.
I often have to remind myself that within every dark cloud is a silver lining. Sometimes you just have to search for it. And, just because life sucks now, doesn’t mean it can’t get better. At least we have jobs and have the ability to have a better life. Some people aren’t as lucky.
PS- I apologize for such a pity-party post, but this weekend hasn’t been what I wanted it to be, so I’m a little down-in-the-dumps.
