So last year welfare stopped helping us with rent ("b/c DH was going to college." strange IMO!) not a problem! We're still here! Harden on bills & rent but still here!
In march got to refill out paper work to keep FS, (okie dokie!) & 2 weeks into April I got a letter saying "I didn't do something right." (huh?!) so I called FS & the woman says "oh it wa a hiccup. It'll be fixed, your fine!" (meh, ok!)
Yesterday, (ok really on friday) I saw my cousin (mother side family) who I haven't seen since DD was born (so over whole 8years!) 2 years ago my aunt (my cousins mom, she passed away. No one would talk to me, give me a ride to the wake or anything. I was said & that's when I really became a "ghost" to my "mother side family". & found out my aunt had $100K life insurance, (hold a sec! Don't think I wanted anything to do with that!) but I guess only the 3oldest kids got my aunts $$$$, & I gues my poor litterly poor cousin (the baby of my aunts kids) didn't get a cent of that $$$, so he is a single parent who has no job, struggling, can't pay rent.)
So I gave yesterday food, dish soap, 2 dish sponges, 2 cat toys b/c my cousin has a cat, a bucket (but he can use it as a trash can), 5 "glad trash bags", & like 10 Walmart small grocery bags, & 3 containers of sugar, creamer, coffee & some coffee filters. Not a lot of stuff but some stuff when you can't afford food or house hold items.
(yes I have a BIG BLEEDING HEART!) so today I called my FS card, "$4.00 for FS."
......... Why must we always struggle?!
