4 KIDS NO DOG and a BABY

October 29, 2009

Not trying to complain!

Ok I am, well maybe not complaining but just UGHHHH expressing what is just going on! Oh maybe just list a few things that have happened that feel huge and overwhelming but after I list them it will seem little right and all silly??

Bee broker her arm, had to call around and beg people to take our medicaid...
T-rex and Two both had major poopy accidents all over the bathroom, at least it was the bathroom..
babysitter quit on me (same day as broken arm) telling me I had rotten kids...
water heater broken for over a month, fixed that, then sink started dripping and leaking all over floor, fixed that today and the main water pipe to water heater is now spewing water all over....
dishwasher went out for two weeks.
t-rex just ripped my scriptures and the Twilight book from my sister in law I need to return..
Bee wet the bed...
I am going to have to take Two out of preschool because I can't afford to send her.
Rent is due Monday and don't have money to pay for it.
I can't take a shower because of all the water problems.
The only phone calls we get are for debt collections...
I lost...or the kids lost two library books...
I need to go and get treats for the preschool trunk or treat and only have two dollars...
T-rex ripped off my keys on the laptop...most of them...

This is just since last week......and most since Friday....

Really it isn't that bad is it??

Oh and Two and G-Man both need glasses...G-man really badly because he isn't doing so well with school and I know that plays a major role...

Positive at least we have a roof over or head for a little while...and some food to eat and friends...it can't be all bad can it??

Happy Thoughts!!!!

I am so sorry! I feel your pain!! I really do! I keep telling myself that it can't last much longer... I hope that's true! When I look at everything we need and yes, I do mean need... not want... I get close to having an anxiety attack! I have no idea how things are going to work them selves out, but I know that I am doing everything I can physically do... it just has to turn around!
I too am tired of answering the phone with no answers to give! Austin needs braces desperately, Bryson could use hearing aids as well, and it makes you feel like crap to not beable to provide the necessary things right when they need them.
I know it is hard to do... I don't know if you already have, but I would suggest you go and talk to your Bishop... the church welfare system is there for people who are doing everything they can and coming up short. It isn't indefinately, but it can help for now. We went last Tues. to talk to ours and even just letting them know things you have or are available to do and letting him help you network can help... just a suggestion.
Hang in there! hugs()!

So sorry. I hope it all doesn't last much longer for you guys.

I think going and talking to the Bishop is a great idea.

By the way, I'm happy to send you a Twilight book that's in pretty good shape. I know it's not much, but I can at least do that--just e-mail me your address.

Hugs.

I'm so sorry! I know it can be rough, it's hard when things aren't going the way you'd like them to. Our house sold, but not the way we would've liked it to, trying to be on a tight budget is hard especially since I'm addicted to shopping, but I have to think, do I really need that or just want it?? I hope things start looking up for you. If you need help with things, go to the bishop. I've heard from people in the ward that he will help you...seriously, go talk to him and see what the ward can do for you. keep smiling :)

Do you cut coupons? My sister's husband was out of work for 9 months-she has 6 kids. They cut their grocery budget down from $800 a month to $400 for a family of 8. That includes toiletries, food, razors, make up, etc.

Michelle said...

So sorry! When it rains it pours! Praying for you guys.

Bless your heart. I feel ya. Single mom of 3 here, laid off in May, just picked up part time work and someone stole my riding lawnmower the other night. It sounds like you have a good attitude about you...keep your head up and I'll pray for you. I always keep on keeping on because my kids depend on me. It will get better. Chin up.
