Not too much to complain about. Just a little annoyed with my sons school and having to re evaluate his IEP AGAIN.

Lots to complain from here. Last week. Viral infection. Just could finally start eating again. Yesterday was from hell. Boss was being a dick. Call from the ex who had some big balls to question my parenting. Get home and it broke loose. Started peeing blood. *tmi* got served foreclosure papers. I have a UTI. Now I will owe the hospital more $.

Just when it seems like I am getting ahead and things are looking up. Nope. Here comes a huge fucking bitch slap to the face! I give up!

I am so sick of migraine headaches. I am on number 10 in 16 days and I can't wait for my doc appt at the end of the month.

I am also so SICK of job searching. I know I will be good at any job I'm given if I just get the chance! I'm seeing friends just tell someone they need a job and getting hired on the spot but I've been searching fruitlessly since Aug. I'm so disheartened by the lack of progress. I don't have a man to back me up or help support my 3 kids. I don't get CS to help with expenses for the kids while I'm looking. Thank God for my parents! If I didn't have them to live with, I'd be homeless. I don't want to file for PA but it's looking like I have to.

I just want to be able to support my kids by myself. After my husband left me, I was determined to show him that I didn't need him or anyone else and I'm doing a piss-poor job of it.

Srs attempted to fuck me over by closing my daycare when child support papers are due the 18th. They also cut my food stamps to 92 a month. Child care isn't fixed yet, but I did get my food stamps back up. They took it way down because I have joint custody of one child. I have two others that are with me 100%

 I don't really have much to vent about atm.  My poor sister is usually the one that has to deal with my vents!

Can i vent about not being a venter? :) 

I will say that while i understand the need to ban eggs and peanuts products from daycare because of one kid, I have NO idea what to do about my son's breakfast now... he has eggs every MWF and then French Toast, which has eggs in it, TTh, when i drop him off right when daycare opens. Not sure who the other kid is with the allegry, although i do know he/she is not in my son's room, but my son is there long before mosr kids arrive ... and does not like dry cereal (and just now is getting into oatmeal a little but its still a bit messy)... so again, i have no idea what to do about breakfast now... not to mention i make a month's worth of eggs and french toast at a time and freeze them as a time saver, so what do i do now?? 

ok, thats all... i am sure it will get worked out in some way... just wish i had more time to figure it out.
