Amy WAHM to Elle 3/2/2004, Meadow 12/02/2006, Azaliah 4/09/2009, and Olive 09/23/2011. I have been married to my husband Bill since 2/22/03.....
It is a constant struggle and it's exhausting.
But I am looking for a part time job that I can do a few nights a week (while my dh is home with the kids) to help make ends meet.
It won't bring in a ton of money...but if it will cover a bill or 2 it will be worth it. I just can't handle the stress anymore.
hang in there mama!

You should get a Chilton's car repair book for your model car from the library and see if you or DH can replace the fuel pump yourself. My DH has done it several times.

It's really disheartening.
Anyway, all our bills are paid for the month (thank God) and if I get creative with meals we can make it... but... we have $10 dollars in our account to last until he gets paid in 2 weeks... no, I didn't forget another zero, it is literally $10.
You are not alone mama, honestly. We are right here with you if you need to talk.
|I have had times when I have sat at the table with all the bills spread out in front of me and tried to decide which to pay and which to put in the desk for next payday, *maybe*.
It's really disheartening.

I should have) some dishwasher detergent (yay!!) a new dish scrubber and shower curtain (our old place had a sliding glass shower door and if you want to move an old dish scrubber into a new house then you are more frugal than I am )
So for us moving was way more expensive than I thought it would be.
