The amount of family time that I miss out on so I can work shitty hours for shitty pay is taking a serious toll on my psychological wellbeing. I can't tell you how many times I've had to tell my children and/or husband to have fun & I wish I could be there. Instead of being with them. Just so that I can make $200 a week.
I get to grocery shop with that little card. But almost never do I get to cook that food and sit down for a meal with my family. The scholarships my kids recieved for school are awesome, but I rarely get to help with homework or attend a school function or sporting event. I don't even see my older children 3 days a week. Time that I am home is spent doing laundry and other chores. If I spend time with my kids, those things don't get done. If those things don't get done, well I'm sure you can imagine that chaos.
I may be poor. I do not live the "good life." So tell me again how I have it so wonderful?
