  • Explain your situation to your family and friends and ask them not to tell you about any drama until your babies are born. You can't solve everyone's problems even though you sound like you have a big heart. Let your husband screen your calls and just hang in there for a little while longer. People that are adults need to learn to work through their own problems. Its nice to have support but your babies lives are at stake.

  • Just take it easy hun. Your family can take care of themselves. You should check in with them and make sure everything is ok and after that turn your phone off and get some rest. I know you are concerned about them but those babies come first so rest and stop worrying over things other people can handle

  • Life happens, fridges dont get moved in on time. They will make it through this. Your children are your number one priority at this point.

  • Hello i had to stop on this one to answer you. In order for you to not stress out there problem knowing you can't afford doing so due to your situation just tell them to contact the landlord and tell landlord that a refrigerator is needed immediately have them give the landlord a time and date when he can bring it over. Let them take the responsibility for it. Rememeber they are grown and they have dealt with worse situations in life and have achieved. We all have at one time or another. You'll be surprise of what they can do. If landlord doesn't comply tell them to hold off on the rent until he does or tell them to ask the landlord if he or she wants them to use money off rent to purchase one eventually that will make landlord make a decission. You then can sit back and relax.
