Keeping it Real

Hopefully we are all still keeping it real in our blogs. Life goes on and so do our woes as well as our triumphs. 

This is my wonderful son William, who is in the Army. He is still in ATI (school), but doing really well. He had to traverse some rough waters, but kept his chin up.
It is terribly hard for our children to leave home, leave all their friends and everything they have know, shave their heads and say 'Yes Sir' (the last bit was me being a wee bit sarcastic).
I salute him and all our young men and women serving their countries.

I had the day off from work today. Usually nice, but today all I did was sleep. Still having horrid headaches, probably brought on by my doing our household budget this morning. 

We come out $500 in the hole every month!!!!!!
Cut out things you might say, but I have cut out everything I possibly can. All I can think of is that I need to go back to work full time. Now that is REALLY depressing.
So before I start blubbering all over my keyboard, I will show you something nice that I was able to buy with proceeds from an Etsy sale.

Gorgeous fabric from Sew
Not sure what I will use it for just yet, but it did make me smile!


See you all soon....


  1. Things are so tough financially these days, I'm enjoying not working so much but we barely squeak by!
    You must be so very proud of your son!!!

  2. You're right, we Yorkshire gals like to keep it real:) I am divorced and getting ready for marriage #2, living in a tiny apartment getting by with one car and only my fiance's income but hey, as long as I can still afford my wine in a box then life is good!!! My wine prevents me from "whining" too much lol.

  3. I could certainly relate to so many things you shared here, including the feelings of having my son away at the Army - those were difficult times, but we do make it through. Budgets are always so tough too, especially when we fall so short each month.

    Keep the hope and faith though, life has a way of presenting solutions and miracles around each corner, we just to be open to them.

    All the best♥


I would love to hear from you!
