Rhu, I'm keeping you in my thoughts for this new opportunity. That would be great. Sounds like a great fit for you!!!
frugalmama, I'm sending you thrift store vibes. Hopefully you find a few treasures and make some money.
cra*yms, CONGRATULATIONS!!!!! Don't leave us. You still have the low income support, even if you are able to climb out of the hole. We love you. I'm so happy for your family.
Mylie, I'm hoping this is a blessing in disguise for you. You get time with little L AND you get to search for a better job that will be more financially sustainable for the future. Everything works out as it's meant to eventually, even if it sucks now.
Donna, WELCOME!!! I think you'll pick up a lot of tips just hanging out and reading. There's a lot of mama's on here who do so very much with so very little. Sometimes just thinking outside the box is all you need to do.
-I got scrubs for cheap for clinicals next week(not this coming week). SUPER cheap from the thrift store.
-Today was family fun day at our complex and we got home from school/camp with about 35-40minutes left to participate. They hit the water slide in their clothes and got painted faces and mooched snacks.
It was awesome.
-And because we came in at the end, I helped the complex manager clean up and she offered me the leftover face paint/glitter! My kids are currently COVERED in paint on the deck.
There's a ton of it too. Like two full kits.
-Today we finished the last chapter in my book for my class so it's just hitting me that we have 3 weeks left until certification/testing. I'm feeling good about it and I'm maintaining a 97 average.
-Bills are all paid and I have enough money for rent AND grocery shopping. That's a dang good month!
