See what CafeMoms are saying about saving time this holiday season..
I previously posted that my bf is in jail. I visit him 3 times a week as allowed. Despite him being on drugs up until shit hit the fan - he did give me all of his money. (However, at times he was stealing some of it back, I was still used to having extra income) Now I'm obviously down to my own. On top of that I go on maternity leave in 2 weeks and will only get 60% of my regular pay for 2 months. Money has been a major stressor with trying to prepare for everything. I get really angry at him because of the situation he's put me in. I know they do not feed them enough in jail. I try to order him some extra soups so he's not going hungry. He knows this is difficult for me and I told him I don't know if I will be able to keep it up. His actual charges are misdameanor that do not carry a long sentence, but he violated probation. He will probably be released from jail sometime in November.
Someone in the jail is leaving and wants to sell their things for 10$. Thermal, sweats, extra tshirts. Yes its a good deal. I know he's complained its cold there from day 1. 10$ is not a lot. But still WTF! if he wanted to live comfortably he shouldn't have fucked up. I complain to him about my stress with money all the time. If he were going to be there a LONG time... sure I could see him needing these extra things. But he can't stick it out for a month and a half - 2 months? I just feel like he's not really thinking about me and the baby. How can be he when he knows Im struggling and has the nerve to ask me to help him with this shit. He told me he's tryhing to get a job there so I don't have to worry about ordering him anything anymore. Still... I drove home and just felt myself getting more and more pissed.
