The prices of pretty much everything is going up. Everyone knows this and has talked about it in one way or another. So I shouldn't have been surprised when I got the letter from Pooka's before/after school care a.k.a. summer camp about the camp fee's this year. All I can say is OMG! With the cost of living climbing and my paycheck staying the same I think the Janet tickets are going to be the last luxury item I buy for awhile. I plan on reworking my budget this weekend so everyone is happy, including me. In times like this I wish that Pooka's father was more of a financial supportive parent. I know I can go through the gov't but like I've said a million times, that won't do anything but get him locked up. If he's locked up then Pooka wouldn't be able to see him the few times a year that she does. Times like this I wish Pooka was old enough for me to say "F that", go to the store, get her a key made, tell her not to touch the stove or have boys over, and have her chill at the house all day....but she isn't old enough for that kind of responsibility.
I've been fortunate to be able to take care of what I need and still have a few dollars to take care of a few wants, but with this job change (that's pays slightly less) and my cost of needs rising I really have to have a financial game plan in effect soon. *sigh*
In other news technology doesn't like me...my laptop is falling apart inside and out, my desktop doesn't like the mouse and keyboard to be plugged in at the same time, my new tv converter box is possessed (I won't even go into the story of me hooking the damn thing up), the tv in my room is dead, I almost cooked the color out of my cell phone (luckily when I got it out the car and put it in a cooler place the color came back on the screen), and Mia is not acting right....
Okay Mia isn't really a technology item but she isn't working right. I can't put my finger on what's wrong with her but I just know something isn't right. I called the car dealership and told them what's up. So I'm going on Saturday to have her looked at. Being that I've had the car almost 6 months and only put about 900 miles on it EVERYTHING is still under warranty. I can be thankful for that.
Side hustles here I come!
