Are you serious with these questions? Not only are the questions prying but the whole tone seems rude.

Well my income pretty much only covers rent and daycare, but i still pay everything on time and am not in debt. Not on assistance but honestly at this point I'd love food stamps. I went on vacation last summer when my parents took my girls and I to Florida with them.

We don't get assistance. And there's months when we run short but we manage. Our landlord is pretty good about accepting our rent a few days late if we need to.

Well you're doing better than us that's for sure. I'll try to update our info once we have steady paychecks coming in. Which he just got a new job so hopefully we'll be ok soon.

We get paid twice a month. The first pay check every month pay for two weeks of food and gas as well as all the monthly bills but rent. Nothing is ever more than a few days late. To be honest I don't even look at the due dates. But I pay them exactly every four weeks. I pay them all on pay day. Then the second pay check every month pays the next months rent and two weeks of food and gas. We have at least $100 extra every pay check sometime more depending on how much overtime hubby did that pay period. Yes it last till the next check most times but not always.

we have never taken a vacation.

and no we don't have any assistance.
