See what CafeMoms are saying about saving time this holiday season..
January 6 we will be getting evicted, because I lost my job and we have no way to pay our rent. I need 400 dollars to pay it and have no income, and no family to help, churches say they dont have the means because of the holidays. I posted on Wish upon a hero, and have recieved no response. This is causing tremendous stress on SO and I's relationship. All we do anymore is argue and he has really shown me a side of him that I do not like. The only option is staying with his sister and her DH and kid in a tiny trailer, that is in the middle of nowhere, there are no jobs and we will be stuck there, (off season in florida, no jobs till summer, and then the closest town is an hour away) bad for DD, because we will run out of funds soon, and how will we buy diapers, wipes, food? not to mention her DH is suggestive and flirty towards me, and SO in the VERY begining of our relationship with me (only were dating 3 months at the time) cheated on me (long term) with his exgirlfriend whom he dated for four years, she lives right up the road from where we would be staying, I would constantly be paranoid, and uncomfortable. If SO and I split, I will be stuck there. second option- sell my car, it is a nice, dependable 06 scion xa, that i am in love with, first thing I ever purchased. Then I could pay my rent. However, if SO and I split (likely) then I will have no car and no way to get one, get around to take care of my daughter. And eventually have to leave the apartment because I can't find a job here. So I'm not sure if there is any point in staying. SO lives in a fanatacy world and all of his plans are more like pipe dreams, they make no sense. He thinks if we move in with his sister we can save all this money and move to a town that we will be better off in, and doesn't realize that you can't save money with no income. Income tax this year wont be anything, I ended up owing money because I got a BP settlement in 2010 and didn't file it because I didn't know you were supposed to. (Now i owe 1k plus intrest.) All of DD's stuff is here, her doctor, her medicaid, everything. I am so confused.
I really don't know what to do. What do you think? We are young and i'm scared and confused. Our relationship is BAD right now. This stress is making us hate eachother.
