congrats on the baby! i was impressed...within a week of having dc3 i had a letter telling me my FS was going up $100. it probably had something to do with the fact that i am on state health insurance as well though.
i've had a hard month this month. FS workers completely screwed my reapplication up and put me down as having 2x as much income as i do since they put down that a LOAN was income (ongoing). it's taken 20 days to get fixed. huge mess and i was LIVID and worried for the entire month. of COURSE the month before i had actually used ALL of our FS (which has never happened) so I was SOL. finally got FS back...at $80 less per month which is ok since its a large amount but the extra woulda been nice since now i have to restock EVERYTHING.
car has broken down more. needs a new alternator. i had just had $1k worth of work put into it so i thought i was in the clear but NOPE...grrr.
