Quit your whining!

Does it seem that good things always fall into some peoples lap?  Oh, you are happy for them, but inside your thinking..No fair.

Some of us work real hard at our low paying jobs.  Living pay check to pay check. When others at the same job are always getting some kind of Break.

How can a One income family with two kids still at home..2 cars, a new home do it?  
I often ask myself...What are we doing wrong?  It's just the two of us.
Oh, I know that we (Hubs and I) can put in some over-time to make a little more money, but the Hubs won't do over-time, (I've been there for 30+ yrs. I don't want to spend more than 8 hrs. in that shop..bluh bluh) so I kinda get an attitude, and think why should I be the only one busting my butt to get ahead?   Then I start thinking that if I do do over-time (I said dodo) that extra money is going into My savings account, not the joint checking where we put all our money for bills.

Several years ago I got myself a second job...Oh, it didn't pay much, but the money was mine...all mine I tell ya.  In a way I was still saving us money because I wasn't dipping into the checking account.
I had to eventually give up my little part-time job.  Getting only about 4 hrs. of sleep was waring me down.  I was becoming a "Safety Hazard". (just saying)

I know..you are thinking.. Quit your whining!   at least you have a job!  And yes, I am very Thankful!
So, I will quit whining, and think about doing some over-time. (working till 4am is just Ugh!)

Have a Great Weekend my Friends
Hugs to all...

After 30+ years at one job, you have every right to complain, and whining is okay too!

Turns out, when I got ahead at work, I couldn't handle the strain. Now I'm writing and we're just scraping by. Don't know what tomorrow will bring, but it's a lot easier to sleep at night.

Everybody needs a little whine now and then. God knows I've done my share.

Hugs!
