So a little background: I left my husband 10 months ago and have been on my own (he hasnt chipped in his share of CS really at all) living in a 2 br apt. and working since April at my job as a gardener. Well as you can imagine that job is seasonal and is ending at the end of this month. I get my job back in april again but have been going nuts trying to figure out how the kids and I would mkake it through the winter. I barely get by now and my kids spend 10 hours a day in daycare/preschool :/ I came to the relization that my only option was to move in with my parents. My mom is out of work right now and can watch the kids during the day which will be huge! they will be soooo much happier and I will not have to worry so much about them. My paretns own their home so it is a very inexpensive place to live, I will be able to help them out a lot with utilities and groceries even if I have to take a job that doesn't pay as much as I make now I will be doing a lot better then I am now. Also the thought of having daily help with the kids is so refreshing! I will be able to do things like go for a run or visit with friends again any night or day of the week! Where I live now is 2 hours from my parents and everyone I know so it has not only been hard but lonely too.
So those are all the pros of living with my parents again, the cons...well living with my parents again and giving up my space! Also I did sign a lease on this apt and am having to break that and I feel like a jerk :/
I guess I am looking for support from other single moms who are or have had to live with their parents again after a divorce.
