Last  p.m., Sunday--- March 24, repeated......  just like last spring 2012 same day practically the Sunday before the Holiday began,.....

" Crowds were overwhelming".... 

We parked the car.  We went in.  Endeavoring just to obtain a really scant amount of necessities.  Knowing it's the end of this month with our bills as usual for insurance, and the 1 other bill for our emergency phone... the one with the working "more powerful" battery. 

We went to take our 20 items or less to that lane just made for 20 items or less,..  with around 3 other things we needed on cash.

We got to the check out lane, lined up all our stuff...

then we were told after handing our ACCESS food stamp card over to the cashier it's been denied, and the whole world was shut down for wal - mart's FOOD STAMPS users.

Only on the Holiday.  Last year, also.  Denied again. Same exact day of the year, on Sunday prior to Holiday.

Probably because everyone is using it for candy? I have no clue. This never happened to me when I had fs.

I guess that is a good probability.   Sugar, candy, wasting way too much teeth on already rotting children's teeth.  Maybe we'll get the picture after all, ......  candy causes bad teeth.

Another point NOW happening is it's being priority for children first to get teeth checked, including oral x-rays of teeth, cleaings, and 1 filling per year covered.  

I'm hoping that our kids will enjoy celery and carrots, and it's not happening. but their teeth aren't that awful, it's just now we went to non sugary items, of candy that is.  Nutrasweetened candy.

To those who say just get a job, it's always greener on the other side right?  I'd say if you're happy working and on your break taking time to answer this, then you also have too much time, since every job I've ever had I never had internet, I'm nearly past my real prime to keep work full time, I've got bad hips, cannot lift or stand and have terrible circulation, I can work in a job that permits time accordingly, so since nobody appreciates that in any job surrounding and it's more of a cat fight in the workworld, I choose to stay home and I have no extra money .  I did work and enjoyed all my jobs, just not lucky or cunning, or catsmart enough to get as high up as some think they are at and you can appreciate that.  Are you serious who woudn't love to work it gets money and get us out of the house.  I am not complaining of being a sahm.  I love it.  Never trade our best life's work.  It's a 1 shop, 1shot deal world. It's also a man's world by hierarchy.   If anyone has anything to say about work it's great!  I'd love to hear how your jobs are going! !

I admire those who can work and keep jobs.  If you have any sah extra income jobs / ideas that will help me out I'd love to know now what that is.   And thank you so much for any suggestions, as long as it's not standing or lifting too awful long.

Guess you didn't plan enough for later. Gotta save for later early on.

I was always content and happy in my jobs, and did what I could as long as my body strength and mind permitted me to.  I have more knowledge and strength because of the jobs I did.

I'm not here to argue with others' about their personal lives.  It's way more than just money.   What makes you happy?  Ask your 'self' that.  It's referring to your own set of rules that way.  And than it makes other's happy in turn.
