I was worried how my birthday-ness would go down since I'm on McD's payroll but as it turns out I have four uncashed checks from my previous employer! I used to bartend, and my old boss (My boyfriends aunt) called yesterday to see 'What up wit dat' and is now re-issuing my checks. I wont be much but it'll be more then nothing and prolly well enough to get smashed since my pregnancy has trashed my drinking tolerance.
Anyho - Easter kind of sucked. Ever since my sister died no one has gone to church and since having the baby out of wedlock I don't feel very welcomed there. So no palms, no ashes and no miracles. Just working for eight hours and then ham. No one even got dressed up or took pictures. Then my mother had the gull to ask me what I got my daughter for Easter.
"Sorry I thought it was silly to buy anything for a three month for a holiday we weren't even celebrating properly"
I was thus considered rude.
My point of view - Bills are tight, we're trying to get into a house, my critter has more toys than she can master at the moment and right now she should be greatfull that I'm not going back to bartending. So why splurge when she wont even remember - especially when we have such an out pouring of hand me down clothes, toys and books?
If I had it my way I wouldn't celebrate Easter or Christmas. I don't consider myself Catholic any more, haven't gone to church in five years and the last church member stopped speaking to me when I began to show. It's just a waste of money that could be better spent on quality time with family.
