I guess if money is the true root of the problem then when you have more it will help. I feel like I have spent a lot of time in the past year (okay, lifetime!) trying to see the root of the anger and guilt that I feel sometimes (not that you're angry, just in my situation) and instead of trying to use mantras to ignore it (since it always comes back) I'm trying to examine the shadows and deal with the darkness and find mantras that help me shed light on that. If that makes sense. ? That may have nothing to do with whatever you're experiencing.
Thanks. :) Money is, I think, I big part of it. We don't have much and have really little to no cushion so any expected expense is a big deal. But, like you, the anger and guilt I regularly feel is deeper than just money. Even if its over a fee at the library, yes money is involved but that's not the biggest part of the issue, if that makes any sense. Things that are out of our control, though, still seem to happen all the time--ie car repairs etc, that we don't usually have the cash for on hand. Its just frustrating.

It's the buyer's agents...I don't get it, either. This house would be perfect for an investor-- my mortgage is under $700/mo and I paid $140K for it. It's selling for $4K less, so you know the mortgage will be less, and one could easily get $900 in rent for it.
M's interview went fine, but they aren't going to start anyone for 2 more weeks, so he is going to keep sending resumes. He found out that his rights really were violated according to state law, but he just wants to put that place behind him, so he's not going to pursue anything against them. His spirits are pretty good in general
That's extra frustrating, then! Maybe switch it up and rent it out yourself? I don't know the logistics of that, but its an idea.
Glad his interview went well. Hopefully something will pull through quickly! Glad his spirits are good! Personally, I'd go after the place, but that's just me. I'm cranky like that.

my spring semester is almost done. ye gods, i can't wait for it to be over!!! and I'll be teaching for the same schools in the fall. at least, I've agreed to that. I've started applying for all sorts of stuff now to see if I can get a full time benefitted position instead of being an adjunct.
Thanks. :) I'd love to not be poor, too! I keep saying that "we'll get there", but it never seems as though we will!
Hope you find a good position! What do you teach, if you don't mind my asking?

Glad you are feeling better. Talking with people who feel the same and having a plan pulled together always makes me feel better. There are some really nice assisted living places out there, so she's living on her own but not actually alone, if that makes sense. My grandparents live in one and its been super beneficial when they've had health issues and needed to get to the hospital.
Thanks for the good energy everyone. Things have been looking up for us and my kids don't seem to be ready to rip each other limb from limb so much the past couple of days (thank the Gods! ). I definitely think it helped.
I hope you all have a good week!
