Why does life have to be so complicated?

I have two little boys that I cannot seem to find a sitter for so I can get a job. If I cannot get some kind of job I am not going to be able to make it. I have a great boyfriend and he works, but that only seems to cover just our bills if even that. I do not know what to do sometimes.

  • Will your family help out? In certain states the state will pay for child care, have you tried applying for assistance? Im sorry you are going through this rough patch. I been there before there in the past there has been times when I didn't know how we were going to pay rent. But some how we got through it and I know you will to. Take care
