If we make it through December

Today’s post brought to you by my 7th graders lovely holiday chorus concert, a marvelous surprise in the mail from Rose, running water to clean up 7 year old’s vomit and cat puke, and new Patreon supporter Angie. 

Add this to the Killjoy Christmas playlist.

I feel ya, Merle.

I had thought today I could pay November rent but then did math this morning and realized paying the full amount would leave us $75 for gas and groceries until next Thursday  – during a week with kids home on break. That’s not going to work. I’ll pay part of it. Everything else is caught up except for rent! I’m calling that a somewhat-success.

 

Littlest kiddo home sick today and sad to be missing fun activities at school. Today’s activity was a Sun Welcoming Centerpieces for the Solstice. I’m delighted to see Paganism being practiced in public schools. Finally, my traditions are being honored en mass!
(It’s funny,right? Public schools are being very conscientious about not focusing on religious holidays but inadvertently using Pagan themes as substitute. I love it)
Anyway, since today is Yule and he’s home sick, we’ll make out own Sun Welcoming Baskets here. We don’t have much else planned. Husbeast is working evening shift tonight and older kids are busy with other things so having any sort of Yule celebration isn’t happening. Guess we’ll have to wait until that other day everyone gets off for their holiday.

  1. Actually here it is January that is the tough, cold, short pay month. But I guess “If we make it through January wouldn’t scan so well”

    Red Green says:
    Remember, I’m pulling for ya. We’re all in this together!

  2. I remember that Merle Haggard song. “Got plans to be in a warmer town come summertime” is about as cheerful as I can manage if I’m walking in snow or Ohio’s specialty, “winter mix”.

    On the other hand, some of my health issues may be improving, so I might stay in the area when my lease expires. However, I always get a chuckle. The school’s “Sun Welcoming Ceremony” pretty much matches the important part of my (pagan) day.
