I am still here . . .

So I have been crocheting lately, I just have not been taking pics and posting them. Between being stressed out about money and bills and all that crap, and then the lovely preggo hormones, I have not felt like doing much except sitting in front of the tv and crocheting, or doing nothing. I am happy I finally have my car back. Long story short, my brakes went out over a week ago. The brake line had rusted through. My brother was nice enough to fix them, but that was really the last thing I needed to put money into right now. And of course hubby is totally taking advantage of the fact that I am home and has taken off pretty much every night last week and this week to go hang out with friends. Of course leaving me all day with a 2 year old. I love my son, but I need a break too!!! Anyway, I am sure that will not happen, but it is awful nice to dream right.

So one would think as much as I long for my days off and weekends that I would not be so stinking bored at home. Of course it is not much fun being home with a 2 year old all day, and then when the hubby gets home, he figures that since I am not at work that he can do whatever and I am still watching a 2 year old all night. I love my son, but I am also 7 months preggos, there is only so much I can take. Well verdict of today is that I am at least off the rest of this week. I get to call on Friday about next week. So yeah, at least 3 more days off being paid jack-crap on the wonderful unemployment system the state has set up. Granted I am happy I am getting paid at all, but I would rather be working and making decent money instead of sitting home all day making crap that I can not even live off of. I will never understand how people can sit around not having a job, and suck the welfare system dry. now I am not saying that all people on Welfare are like that, just the ones that are too lazy to go get a job. Welfare is a great system, unfortunately WAY to many people abuse it, and that sucks. But anyways, I guess I am done for the day. I am just bored and really want to go back to work.

So I said I was not going to say much about my job, but I just have to vent. I am temporally laid off, and it is driving me nuts! I am enjoying all the free time I have, and getting to spend time with my little booger and hubby, but I am stressed to the max about our money situation. Like half of the free world, me and hubby made some bad decisions and have a bit of debt. We weighed our options and find a wonderful program to help us out so that it would not come down to bankruptcy. Well if I continue to be laid off, I am not quite sure what we are going to do. I know that this situation is nothing I can control but I am obligated to this program to a certain amount every paycheck. They will work with me to a point, but I am not sure how far or long they can go. Plus on top of everything being 7 months pregnant I am not in a position to run out and go find another job. I really hope I get some great news today when I call into work, but at this point I am not holding my breath for anything.
Just when it seems there are blue skies ahead it starts down pouring again. . .

And then there is that Ebay situation! Me and hubby have been going through the house to try and clean out and maybe make a few buck in the process. We put a couple things up on Ebay, and one of them sold right away. This was awesome, thinking great, We will have a couple extra bucks to take care of a few things. Well the idiot that bought our item has not returned any on my emails or messages or even responded to the invoices I have sent. The account is not very old, so unfortunately I am sure it is a scam account just meant to tie down my item for at least the 7 days Ebay requires me to wait to do anything. Thankfully I can file my dispute tomorrow and that I never send anything out until I have gotten paid, but this added to all the rest is not great for my situation. I will never understand why some people do such stupid things and try to scam others. Bunch of idiots we have to deal with. I know they will get theirs but in the mean time they are very annoying to the rest of us.
