Manatee viewing center

Last week I spent time with my mom. We went to the Manatee viewing center in Apollo Beach and saw a ton of manatees. The weather has been cold the last couple of weeks so it has been perfect for them all to be there. There were even baby manatees there too! There were a lot of people there too, we had to park in the overflow parking lot.

After spending some time there we went to Vine vegan and had lunch. They are always good. Then we spent a few hours at her house spending time together and talking with her and a couple of my brothers. I have 4 younger half brothers!

Why is it that even though I am making more money than I have ever made I still feel the poorest I have ever felt and still struggle to make ends meet? I live in the worst and smallest place I have ever lived in, have the shitiest car, and feel like at any moment I am going to just lose it all and be on the streets.

I really think it is sad, St Pete over the last year or so has lost several vegan restaurants a bakery, and a grocer. It was so nice having such a Varity of choice, but people don’t have the money to spend anymore, the cost of rent, insurance, and other expenses are sky high. I also thought that there was a lot of competition in such a small area that I knew in the back of my head it wasn’t feasible. I really wish there were a lot more choices but there are only so many of us.
