I work two jobs to make sure that we can have the things we need be it new glasses, clothes to replace the ratty stuff, new shoes because our feet are growing at an alarming rate. I just want to make sure that the kids are happy with what they have. I hope they're never want for anything.
So, I'm trying to get a beauty YouTube channel started. I pick up things to test and review and create content with. This does not go in front of my children's needs. You ask either kid if they're happy. I'm 98% sure both will tell you, "Yes." You ask either kid if there are things they wish we could do more often or things they'd like to have. They'll both tell you, "Absolutely." Wanna know what else they'll tell you? They'll tell you that they understand that we can't always do the awesome and fun things. They understand that we don't always have the money to do stuff all the time. They UNDERSTAND that so long as we're together, everything is perfect.
My family is wonderful. My kids are fantastic. My daughter is creative. My bonus son is passionate. My husband is amazingly supportive of me, his son, and our daughter. I couldn't ask for anything more, really. A lot of the other things will come in time and when it's right. We'll get a break one day and we'll be appreciative of the experiences that we've had to get to that point.

I overhead this in a public restroom at a local retail grocery store. If you think it stinks that badly, then don't use it and wait until you get home. If you really have to go and can't wait, then shut the fuck up and real with it. You're only in there for maybe two minutes.

Last year, retailers made something like $16.3 BILLION on Valentine's Day sales. We're in a recession, too, so it's hard for me to wrap my head around this. Are men spending this money (and studies show that men end up spending nearly twice as much as women do) to make up for being complete and total assholes the rest of the year? Why are women spending an average of nearly $70?
