Money money money money....MONEY!

The Crafty Conservative

Unfortunately, this is what we need to continue with our adoption plans. For the contest...go here.

This is not a plea for money. You don't have to feel sorry for me or try and send me any (I will accept Hershey's Nuggets milk chocolate w/ almonds and toffee---ha ha). That's not what this post is about. It's just a little mini-rant about what I'm dealing with at the moment.

SD is getting his PhD at Purdue. They pay us surprisingly well. I teach part-time (as does SD). We're not going to starve and I'll still be able to buy some yarn here and there (whew!). But, now that we have a birthmother, we have to pay a lot of things up front which means large lump sums all in one month. OUCH! If it were spread out over 2-3 months we would barely be able to "feel the pinch". Compared to the Frog's adoption, this one is a BARGAIN! Alas...I need to send $1500 out to random people (lawyers, agencies, etc...) TODAY. Looks like I'll be going back to the credit cards we haven't been using for over a year (in our effort to get rid of debt).

I must admit...this is all TOTALLY worth it. I'll just consider it my "hospital bill".


  1. "Money, money, money, it's a rich man's world!"

    Just thought I would provide you with another catchy money song to get stuck in your head all day. I listen to my Mamma Mia soundtrack just a bit too much.

  2. money makes the world go round, but if it really hurts talk to your bishop. my prayers are with you.
