Today, all of my titles will rhyme. So, I’ll call this post "Being broke aint no joke".

I just dug up $2.04 in quarters, dimes, nickels and pennies.
That is the exact amount it costs me to support my new habit.
A super sized diet coke from Mc Donalds.
The digging up of the change represents two things.
1. I am addicted to MCD’s diet coke and will do whatever necessary to get my hands on one at lunch time.
2. I am BROKE. Broke like M.C. Hammer. Broke like Willie Nelson with the tax man came a knockin’. Broke like “quit calling my house and my job, mutha fuckers, I aint got no money for you so fuck off” broke. Broke like “generic cheese isn’t that bad” broke… you get the idea.
Hopefully that won’t be the case next month, looks like my husband is going to get rehired by his old company. He’ll be making $11.00 more an hour and they will pay $379.00 of our monthy insurance rate (which is currently close to $550.00).
This will be awesome if… no I mean when it happens. Keep your fingers (and toes) crossed.

    Your hubby will get paid . . .
    Cuz my fingers are crossed . . .
    Bad vibes will get tossed . . .

    Sweetie, I just got your thank you card. That was really beautiful — again, I am so, so sorry about what happened. And now I’ll never mention it again, *ever.* 😉 (Couldn’t resist the smiley….)
    BTW, your tummy is *beautiful.* You’re having a baby! And all will be well soon enough. Enjoy it and keep taking pics.

    Tony will NAIL that job.
    And you’ll be able to afford all the diet cokes that you could ever want.
    Why?
    Because I say so.
    That’s all there is to it.

    I’m so pulling for you guys! I know how broke broke can be, so I’m definitely hoping that soon you’re anything BUT broke. :) Hang in there, Yvonne.

    I’m addicted to Arby’s new Martha’s Vineyard Salad with a Medium Sweet Ice Tea…but my addiction is damn near $6.00! Imagine pulling up with 600 pennies 😛

    Good luck with the job thing. Being broke really sucks. Things seem to be looking better all over. I finally got a real job last month.
