On Monday I got a call from the school that my dd7 and dd4 did not get picked up from a friends house. I spent the day volunteering at the pound and my husband was suppose to get them. I tried calling and it went straight to voicemail. Then I called his work and he didn't even come in that day.
At this point I'm freakig out. After I grabbed the girls I went home to find his clothes, laptop and car is gone. I check our bank and he took EVERYTHING but 100.00. He's no where to be found. I'm at stay at home mom. I don't have a income. He left me with rent and bills. We didn't get any taxes because he made too much.
With the savings we had a plan to buy the girls new shoes, jackets and clothes. My dd has had the same coat for two years and it's gross looking.
Tuesdays I applied for emergency cash aid and food stamps. The cash aid barley covers our rent. But I'm sure I can clean houses or collect cans for the rest. I also started looking for a job.
I'm so stressed and confused. I thought we were so happy. Has this happened to anyone else? Any advice? I don't have family on either side to help. I want to crawl in a ball and not move
