Aw, you poor thing. I am so sorry you are going through this. It sucks to feel trapped an powerless. I just had to stop and hug you, I am not sure what to advize off the top of my head. Hang in there.
Go You!!!
My kids eat cereal with soymilk, popcorn or a pb&j sandwich. some times I get tortillas and melt some shredded cheese on them and roll them up... but we don't do a lot of cheese here. My hubby and I eat vegan and the kids eat vegetarian.
We sold our house this past December when almost no houses were selling. We decluttered, cleaned up the yard, made some important repairs with the help of friends and family etc. We hired a realtor and listened to what he thought the house would sell for. We decided he was a bit over-optimistic about what we could get for it and went a bit lower.

My BIL babysits so he can use our washer and dryer. We are thrilled.
*sigh* I know. One of my nieces (at about 2) was given no bedtime routine at all and it really bothered me.

I have to admit, living in the same house, I did sneak in there when I could and would whisper stories to her. I have rarely treasured words more than her; "night, night Auntie. I wuv you."

The price increases are very real and climbing fast. I have watched my grocery budget go from $75/week to $125/week in about a year. It took nearly a decade for my budget to go from $50/week to $75/week. Gas has gone up ridiculously and it shows no sign of stopping.
