Never Count Your Chickens Before They Hatch...

Thankfully this year, we were able to receive a Christmas Bonus at my job. When I found out the good news, I was ecstatic! Images of all the wonderful Forever 21 tops, MAC Holiday kits, and shoes, etc. ran through my head. I knew once I had the money, I would go on a much deserved shopping spree with the hubby. Well to make a long, super long story short, I GOT SUPER EFFIN JIPPED!!! Yes, I was told I would receive a minimum of around $750 and when I was told that I would only get $400, I was like, "Homeboy say what?!?!?!?" Yeah not cool.

Don't get me wrong, I am so thankful that we even got a Christmas bonus because our economy is like crap right now, but the word is a lot of staff got over $1,000! WTF!

Honestly $400 is seriously not much now at days & I was actually going to use about half of the money for Christmas gift shopping for family. So much for that.

To be honest, I'm not very thrilled about Christmas this year. My hubby and I have so many bills & a mortgage payment every month. And the medical bills are racking up due to my Thyroid issue. Honestly we have like NO MONEY FOR GIFTS THIS YEAR.
It's such a tough time.

I know we aren't the only one's on the "Oh No, It's X-Mas" boat, but all I can say is, this too shall pass.


  1. Aww hun, so sorry to hear this :( Christmas can be such an exciting time but at the same time a very depressing time for those without money or missing loved ones, etc.
    I hope things turn out for you xox

  2. Thanks Sarah, I know if I remain positive it will.
