All my single people, put your hands up!

I had water for about 12 hours. TWELVE hours. Now I’m without again. 😦 Woe is me. Those 12 hours were nice. I, like, totally turned on my faucet and water came out. I know, right? OMG. I got to take a nice hot shower too. The good old days.

I feel bad for the people in Atlanta. Imagine being stuck in your (cold) car on the highway for 20+ hours. (!!) Not good. Btw, we got about 3 inches of snow. Unexpected…or maybe I don’t watch enough local news.

I didn’t watch much of the SOTU last night. But one thing got my attention on twitter. Two childfree folk said he said something about single, childfree folk. SAY WHAT? 🙂 Maybe I should have watched it. I get bored of watching the POTUS speak at these things after the 3rd year or so. Anyway, here is what he said:

There are other steps we can take to help families make ends meet, and few are more effective at reducing inequality and helping families pull themselves up through hard work than the Earned Income Tax Credit. Right now, it helps about half of all parents at some point. Think about that. It helps about half of all parents in America at some point in their lives.

But I agree with Republicans like Senator Rubio that it doesn’t do enough for single workers who don’t have kids. So let’s work together to strengthen the credit, reward work, help more Americans get ahead.

First things first: What is Rubio saying? He wants to give the Earned Income Tax Credit to single peeps? I seriously doubt that. LOL. I would love him forever if he did that though. Can we get something? Anything? Does anyone hear me? Oh right, no one cares. I wonder did that line get any applause? I doubt it.

The POTUS mentioned us. We must exist!!!! All I hear is “families” and “single mothers”. Oh and I’m beyond sick of hearing about the middle class. What about the working lower class?

And thanks so much Pres. Obama for not saying “childless”! Props. 🙂

I did something nuts. I put $1400 on my credit card. All I can think is, what if my pipes burst (again)? I HATE DEBT. This wasn’t an easy decision but I kind of thought of it as an investment in my future. If I don’t end up making more money in the near future than ugh! I don’t want to think about it.

The money is for a “boot camp like” course to pass the boards. Yep, I’m taking two classes at once. At first I thought there was no way I was going to pass on the first try but now that I’ve invested in this boot camp? I expect to pass on the first try…

Here’s hoping. Was it the wrong decision? Did I fall for a marketing ploy? I admit it was impulsive and probably foolish. What if I don’t need boot camp? The issue is the person I know who has taken the test, has flunked more than 6 times! I don’t have unrealistic expectations. I know it is very hard. But I do kind of expect to pass. I’m definitely putting in the work. Foolish choice? maybe.

(Lots of questions in this post).

Sometimes I think my guinea pigs are worse than little kids…I swear. Don’t tell anyone with kids I just said that. They won’t stop banging stuff in their cages. And they don’t listen. 😉 Gotta go deal with them.
