so basically, right now my parents are supporting me financially. i know it's pathetic and ridiculous but, my ex husband abused my child and i was a stay at home mom at the time so i was out of the job field for a long time. i did have a perfect job last year as a daycare teacher and i got free childcare but the place was dirty and i was spending more time in the doctor's offices for my children than actually working so i ended up quitting. ive tried several other things since.... an at home job but that required a quiet workspace and they only had evening availability and im a single mom of 3 kids so, yeah. i tried to start my own photography business but it hasn't gone anywhere yet. basically im fucked until my youngest (3 1/2) starts school. i checked into how much it would cost to put all 3 of them in daycare (youngest full time, extending my middle from pre-k to full days, and after school care for my 1st grader) and it would cost around $375 a week. i dont have a college degree and i haven't worked in a year so with my lack of skills i wouldn't be bringing home much more than that. now i could qualify for a free daycare voucher BUT i have to be working BEFORE they'll give it to me, they don't offer like a 30 day probation period or anything here. so i have honestly been applying for jobs but i havent heard back from any of them yet, i havent given up the search though.
anyway, today my oldest had an appointment for blood work. my dad came over to watch my younger two kids while i went. when i got back he told me i was a slob and he wants me to call DCF and find a house and move out (mind you he was acting like an asshole in front of my kids) so i asked him what happened and he said the dog shit on the floor. well he knows damn well that it happened ----AFTER---- i left because he was inside and there wasn't any shit on the floor. but yet it's MY fault that the dog shit on the floor while HE was in charge and i wasn't even here! so whatever, i ignored him and took the kids inside. well i could smell the shit as soon as i walked in the door. HE FUCKING LEFT IT THERE while 2 kids were running around.
idk what to do im at my wits end. i want to sell everything in this house and start over somewhere new. needless to say im never speaking to him again and im not sayign that to be dramatic. but this isnt the first time he's overreacted and blamed ME for something that was HIS fault and i'm done. all he does is make me feel like shit and drag me down and if i wanted to deal with dumb shit i'd never have divorced my asshole ex. i hate that i have to depend on him,.... i really fucking hate it and i dont know how to get myself out of this situation right now.
