Gimme Some Money

Home from a vacation that was anything but relaxing.

It's amazing how one thing - one crappy thing - happening can begin a chain of negative thinking.

Yes, I'm sure I will laugh about the car which took us to Central Oregon, then breaking down once we reached our destination, yes, I'm sure I'll laugh... tomorrow.  Or the next day.

Yes, I'm sure I will laugh about the cost of repair that will take all that we have as any kind of financial "security", yes, I'm sure I'll laugh... later.

I obsess over money.  Or, lack there of.  I know it's a waste of time, a waste of energy... blah, blah, blah.  I can't help it.  Every time I hear the saying "Money can't buy happiness" I scream 'Yes It Can!!!'.  I'm that shallow.  Not a pretty color on me, on anyone.

It's really irritating how depressed I get about funds.

Time to find a silver lining.  Or, at least, laugh at myself.

Spinal Tap "Gimme Some Money"

  1. I'm so sorry sweetie that is THE WORST!! Sounds like you need another vacation.

  2. Eh. Not so shallow. Money buys security. Which is really what you're wishing for. :)

  3. It's hard to find security. I understand completely.

  4. Aw sweetie I am the exact same way about money. I get no sleep because of our lack of funds. My hubby's car just died on us about a month ago and we didn't have the money to fix it (plus it wasn't worth it to fix for the money that wanted) so we ended up selling it to one of the mechanics. And are down to 1 car because we don't have the money to even put down on a used one.

  5. Aw babe, I am feelin' your pain! We are already a one car family...and last week the blazer (a smashing 91) began refusing to go into reverse. I cannot invest 2 grand in a car with 190,000 miles on it....I keep coasting down hills and looking for "drive through" parking spaces. *sigh* If I ever win the lottery, I swear I'll share....
