  • Why don't you get a job? Or have your husband get a better job? You guys have a family now, you need to try a little harder.

  • No, this is not a problem that I have. But then again, I sacrificed the care of my daughter to others while I worked my fingers to the bone throughout my twenties and thirties. At one point, I worked textile sales during the day, worked as a grocery night stocker at night, and then sold credit cards during the weekends. But that only lasted a year until I got a job at Sprint. Eventually I decided to go to school.

    I would definitely consider you as a medical emergency to at least get medical if anything.

    My questions to you is, bringing my own experience through life to light, what is keeping your husband at a $10 grand job? Ever though of applying for an education grant through FAFSA

  • i am NOT being rude . it is just common sense to just post a link to the iformation instead of posting 5 thousand times with every tid bit in the link it is easier to just post the link . ho0w is it rude to just ask for the link . stop trying to start drama there

  • Search it yourself. There are three boxes of info given and I provided them. If you can read the first response covers "DC and the 48 Contiguous States." Now let's do some grade school math: 48 states + 1 state (Hawaii)+ 1 state (Alaska)= 50 states.
