Can I join you mama's and whine/vent for a minute? I'm freaking out here, thanks to our screw up of a mail lady my life is about to be ruined, My fin aid check from school was mailed last Friday, it should have been here by now. Our mail lady can't read and she's even been known to drop mail on the ground and leave it there. My neighbors deliver mail when they feel like it, one neighbor had my dd's medical records for a month before bringing them to me. I've gotten mail for up to 8 different neighbors on any given day. Yes, mail delivery is that bad out here. We complain enough and they give us a new mail person, I'm sorry but that person is just as big a screw up and we get a new one every couple of months. That said my car payment is now 30 days late, I'm worried the repo man is going to show up at any moment (no warnings from the bank but do they always warn you?) the rent is 3 weeks late which I'm not so worried about, I've been here 4 years, they know I'll pay. If the car gets repo'd though were SCREWED, we live in a small town where if you don't have a car you're in deep doo doo and with my kids special needs having a working car is #1 priority. Which reminds me, the car is now making a funny vibrating noise near the wheels inside the engines and I don't have the money to get it checked out. It sounds like something is lose, praying the engine doesn't fall out or something. Were supposed to be moving soon and without that check everything is on hold, I can't even go get more produce boxes to pack in because the car is on empty. The 1st months rent is already paid along with the deposit and if where not there to sign and move in we lose everything including the $ already paid on the place. We have multiple out of town Dr visits this week and I have no clue how were going to pay (gas $) for them right now. I need to wash clothes, I packed all the sheets up except for 1 set for each bed and my 7 yr old wet the bed last night (hasn't done that in at least 6 months) and I can't afford to wash right now and its cold, windy and raining out so I don't want to drag the kids to my mothers to do laundry. That's sad when I don't have $2 to wash laundry
I'm exhausted, worn out and just feeling blah, don't have the energy to go cook anything, the kids are cranky and not feeling well and the baby is wanting to nurse non stop and making me feel resentful. I'm down to half a bag of sposies and I've asked a friend for my diaper covers back because I need them and she keeps forgetting and coming up with excuses but this is the 3rd week I've had
to buy sposies and its really putting a strain on an already tight budget and its $10 in gas to go to her house in the 1st place (usually stop by on the way to the hospital with the kids). The utilities/internet and the phone are past due, I wake up every morning wondering if everything is still on and this check is now a over month later then is should have been, it got delayed by 2 weeks because my sitter decided something she has to do was more important (it really wasn't) so I had to reschedule the loan workshop appt and the next one was 2 weeks away then the school took there time processing the paperwork, the lender disbursed the funds over a week late and the school took over 3 weeks to mail the check and your not allowed to pick it up period. Its been 8 days since it was mailed and it should have been here in 2-3 days tops. I know that idiot mail person put it in the wrong box and if its not here by next Friday I have to let the school know so they can put a stop payment on the check and reissue another one which takes another 2-3 weeks! By then the car WILL BE repo'd! This move HAS TO HAPPEN! For a whole bunch of reasons, one of which is so I can find work because there is nothing here. I found us a decent place in a decent sized city were I should be able to find a decent job, especially since I can't rely on school fin aid the next 3 semesters since I'll only be taking 1-2 classes at a time doing the pre-reqs for the RT program.
ugh, wishing the magic money fairy would come by and wave her magic wand and say here's your check! Now go make something of yourself! yeah I know, wishful thinking. This could have all been avoided if the dang PO would just hire people who can read and actually do read the addresses on the mail. If you got this far then thank you, I just needed to get this out before I started screaming in frustration
