4th of July

Happy 4th of July!!

It's kinda low-key for me today, just feel like crap, maybe even a little depressed. I dunno. I'm so worried about finances it's not funny. DH has been on furloughs 2 times already and this upcoming paycheck will be no paycheck. We had to dip into savings to make ends meet. DH will get unemployment, but that's not enough to cover anything (maybe food but that's it). I just wish DH's job would call him back to 5 days instead of 4. Hell, at this point I wish they would just call him back. Maybe in a way they did. He's supposed to go to Iowa next week on a job. And go back to the office the following week on his 4 days. I do hope this pans out, I'm so sick of this that my depression and anxiety are coming back in full force after being under control for a year or so. ARUGH I hate this!! I realize that we are not the only ones going through this but this just sucks, BIG TIME!!

On the stitching front, nothing to report. Just been in this funk and it doesn't want to go away. On the home front, Darling Daughter got her temps to drive (scary I know), Middle child is bored silly and little one (he's actually 9) wishes school would start again. I think they like the "routine of school" I know I do. They went to Summerfest on opening day about 10 days ago and had a good time, 2 kids got sunburned a little but they are nice and tan now. A lot of our flowers are blooming nicely and we get humming birds on a daily basis. We saw a mama raccoon with her babies (all 5 of them) in our backyard last night. As cute as they are, I wish they would investigate someone else's yard. Otherwise, everyone is healthy for the time being. But that could change at any minute with kids and all. :)

Hope you and yours had a great 4th of July!
