  • Ugh... we're broke too but so far we haven't moved back in with my mom. I hope we never have to. But I do need to get at least a part time job soon.

  • Prayers ... hope things get better for you! It' hard having to move back in w/ the parents and it sucks trying to get child support sometimes. UGH!

    Congrats on school! You should be PROUD of yourself for going to school .. things WILL GET BETTER! Just hang in there!

    My hubby got laid off MONTHS AGO and hasn't been able to find a job! Two months ago, I couldn't even keep up with my utility bills ..then I took a chance and signed up for PrePaid Legal ... tripled my investment within 2 weeks and quit my part time job within a month. And I just took my first vacation in 10 yrs. So, it's been a blessing to me!
