So there I was last evening
my checkbook in my hand.
My favorite pen a’weaving
big numbers as I’d planned.

First the rent and then the gas,
then ‘lectricity.
Credit cards have left me scarred
but they’re so cute and pretty!

Next comes cable, hardly stable,
phone and internet,
cell phones, daycare, laundry, loans!
My brow begins to sweat.

With all my paycheck spent now
I might start mowing lawns.
Unless we get more money
I’ll be clippin’ coupons!

y'all don't know the HALF of it! Shee', I just got paid and it's gone befo' it got into da' BANK!! what the hell?? I'm out there breakin' my ass in two to ed-yoo-mah-kate the next upcomin' generation, and what do I get? BUPKIS!! Eatin' PB&J for a week and ramen an I-don't-know-what-all.

MEANWHILE, we DON'T have: cable, a land line phone, satelite or 2 working cars. We DO splurge on NetFlix, but that's 'bout it. Good thing we live in Dixie where at least we can go SWIMMIN' for free all the time.
