So obviously at 9.25 an hour and 40 hours a week it's not going to bring much money in at all,but I'm the only one working and schools fast aproaching, have four kids that need school clothes,shoes,and all the stuff that goes with it,plus the school fees. I'm getting more pissed as the months go on and still the husband hasn't brought any money in. I just paid my gas bill,car payment,insurance,gas for the week,and the cell phones I have squat left. This means it's time to crack the whip on myself and get my unlearned ass to school start doing packets so I can work towards a GED and get to college or something. I don't want to be a woman burdened by a low paying job and pushing a mop around anymore. I caved and applied for food stamps,so that means I'm at the bottom of the totem pole,and I feel like I'm scum. I literally feel embarrasses that I can't feed my family on my own. I should've done something years ago when I was young before kids now I will have to do it all with kids to support and working my butt off.
I wish I didn't have car payments but I do,you know I had a car before but it leaked oil like a sieve,and I begged my husband to fix it but he wouldn't,cause the engine was a sideways engine and it would be out of his league. BS he just was too lazy!! Now I'm stuck paying $170 every two weeks till next August. I don't think I could dig a hole any deeper than what I've already got.
