The hubs has decided to look at tax info knowing I have an envelope for each month of the year with receipts in each. He wants to know how much we made, how much we had in expenses. I just looked at him blankly. really? NOW? lol I don’t think so.

Year after year we do this. We make dribs and drabs here and there from my knitting and from his metal scraping, 346.48 per month from his pension, and $200 a month from cleaning houses. That’s it. There have been a handful of gifts.

He has now sat down in front of a screen of baseball stats.


About Morning Knits

I believe in and practice positive living. I love YARN, music, bird watching, history, gemstones, and gardening. I am passionate about the Earth. I am a true homebody. I said I was Pagan for years to separate myself from a churchy upbringing and judgmental family but I'm not. Funny how things come full circle. I believe it's our responsibility to tend and protect the Earth. I basically do my thing in a quiet, amused way. I believe in the power of my own hands, the energy of combined prayer, and caring for the earth. I attend a Kingdom-focused non-denominational Christian Church. I have 6 kids, all home-born and successfully breastfed. They are all grown. I'm the oldest of 9, daughter of a missionary mother who lives in Kenya, married to the son of a preacher, with 4 spoiled dogs and a rescued cat. Right now, there is small balance after yrs of unemployment. My disability was approved due to degenerative discs, fibromyalgia, and obesity. That last is hard to say. I believe we owe it to ourselves to protect our mental health. It's precious and the one thing we can control. I dislike my own housework and I talk too much. I bought a house in North Carolina and after trying to get my husband here for 6 months, he had a stroke. I'm a two-time caregiver. Steve's got hemiparesis and depression and is learning to walk and trying to use his right side again. It's slow-go.

    Wow, that pension is laughable. Hope you can get the EIC and get something useful back. I love you.

  2. That pension is all we’ve had. I thank the Universe for it constantly. BOA has said no again. I’m not sure why the girl is resubmitting everything yet again…each time, they send it back with a no. Each no buys us another week in the house.
