Bills bills bills

It's forever a never ending cycle. 6 day work weeks, squeezing in time with my kids to relax with them and homeschool them. Buy what they need and try to squeeze in buying what they want too since they are good kids. My rent and water bill is paid in full for March. My home internet is paid (February and March). My cell phone still needs to be paid though. I paid down some debt in full. That was $1900 gone all at once. My electric hasn't kicked in yet though. I bought myself an actual mattress and the slats to hold the mattress up. I got the kids a pair of new sneakers apiece as they needed them. I lent my ex (their dad) some money so he wouldn't get evicted since his roommate got kicked out for failure to pay. I'd never let him be homeless. He'd do the same for me. Needless to say, I'm broke til pay day and until he pays me back, but everyone has a roof over their heads, and food in their bellies so that's good.

You have a good head on your shoulders to have almost evrrything paid. And food and home are most important. So good for you

Bills and groceries definitely come first, but I did manage to get the kids their birthday gifts albeit early. I'm hoping to have April's paid by mid March.

Roof over her head and food in bellies is sometimes As Good As It Gets! Glad things are looking up for you.

Regardless of whether we are together or not, he's still family to me in my opinion. 20 yrs and 2 kids and we will always be connected by the kids (and someday grandkids).

@acrogodess I'd feel the same way too about my husband.

I feel you. I'm doing some side gigs to make ends meet as well.

Yeah, I went and donated plasma after work for extra money today since they give a small stipend for my time.

I try. I figure nothing good can come of being pessimistic all the time.

I get that for sure. I know it seems hard. At least the debt will slowly disappear so you can look forward to that anyway.

I don't get gifts for holidays or my birthday, but that's okay. Those are more occasions to celebrate for my kids.
