Blech-I hate “spring” in canada

5 May

Last weekend with my father around.

So of course I’m broke. I need new pants since my thighs have yet AGAIN wore through, but I have no money to go get any. I could use a haircut. I’d love a pedicure/manicure.

It’s my last weekend with “escape potential” until he returns in the fall. The weather could at least cooperate, but there is a chance of wet flurries today.

You heard me. Wet. FLURRIES.

I hate this province. I HATE IT. Where I grew up, it’s nice and spring like already. If we’re lucky, that will happen here late last week.

The same thing happened on my last maternity leave. The entire May it was fucking freezing. June 1, when I went back to work, it was 75F outside. I am so goddammed sick of cold shitty weather. If I could, I’d throw a shoe at the weather, hoping to smack it in the head. I find I just get more and more depressed because this weather will not relent. And it’s not like it’s just cloudy out, it’s freezing cold. And it’s going to rain.

And my father is leaving, and I can’t get out, can’t even go work in the yard because it’s too fricken cold and wet.

Sigh….anyone have 500.00 they can spare so I can escape for awhile? I love my kids, but I love being able to get out and do stuff with them.

I’ll also be starting the fucked up summer shifts I have to work soon too. Which means working my full 40 hours in a few days, and still being available on the other days. This is what we do to survive without childcare. Thankfully it’s not all year long. I cannot wait until the day when I can just work mon-fri, 9-5 all the time without worry.

At least Vivian is finally out of diapers. Chalk up a victory to us!

oh, and Ros can say she loves me now. It’s not all doom and gloom around here.

While I’m thinking about it though, please go give Gwen some shoulders. She needs a few.

    My heart goes out to your friend Gwen. I went and told her so.

    i hate that my pants always wear through at the thighs. need some new one’s too, but my budget is limited for this month. just had to get some new underwear today and spent about 80 fucking euros (that would be about 120 canadian $$) for two bras. no idea why those monsters are that expensive. guess the pants will have to wait till next month.
    you have my sympathy about the weather – i already start bitching when march takes too long to get warm. but we‘ve had the warmest april in ages, i think. and this summer is said to become a scorcher, even worse than the last one. i wonder where this will all lead, we sure notice a change in the climate during the last couple of years.
    hope you get some sun up there, too … and some time to enjoy it.
