Advice for Moms Advice for Moms

FML ... NEED ADVICE -- UPDATE ... SO MUCH FOR IT GETTING BETTER!!!!!

Posted by   + Show Post

**I posted this in the moms confessions and then found this group.. I will hopefully get more advice in here*


Am I the only one who feels like they will never get ahead in life.. I feel like im failing my boys and my husband. It never fails how much we both work we can never get caught up on bills, no matter how much I clean our apartment its right back to being a mess. I want to give up at times but I have to be positive about everything for our kids I have a 4 year old and a 2 month old.. im 23 and I really feel like my husband and I are stuck in a never ending battle with money and bills!!! does anyone have any advice for me lol or help organizing finances I suck with!!


***Update***

SOOO my husband and I need to come up with $150 before Friday .. yeah 2 days away or we lose our place because we would have to go to court. I have NO family to help I have already asked them they dont have the money. My husband is supposed to be asking his parents. We thought we had paid everthing to avoid court but nope they called last night stating if they didnt have the $150 we still have to show up to court Friday .. Im losing my mind Im working my ass off. My husband is working his ass off and we just keep gettin shit on.. no pun intended and its not gettin better its worse. How am I going to explain to my 4 year old that we have to find a new place to live. we cant stay with my family. my parents have a 4 bed room house and every room is takin and my sister is sleepin on their couch! FML i seriously give up i wana take my family and run and completely start over!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

good luck to you!! Our electricity almost got cut off while i was having out son in Jan. Luckily my mom and sister split the bill and helped us so i wouldnt come home with a brand new baby to nothing since our apartment is all electric! do you have any friends or family that can help fix it?

Yes, trust me! My dh busts his ass and we just can't seem to get ahead. Our furnace went out and we can't afford to get it fixed. We've been sitting in a cold house for weeks and only able to heat one room at a time. It sucks having to sit in front of a heater all damn day. We have 2 kids too that are 2 and 8 months.

I seen your post your furance is  broke have you checked  in to  a local church they some times help families  in need have you looked in to getting any pa that might help take the edge off until you guys can get a little head ? Becareful who you tell you guys dont have much heat dcf might be called on you since you have babies - You said you are in one room buy one or two more tack up a thicker blanet in the entry way to maybe the livingroom and kitchen to keep those room warm and block out the oithers you will have more room to move around  becareful with that toddler around those space heaters-

We don't qualify for any kind of pa, never have. I haven't told anyone other than family. We've been home as little as possible ad our door in our living room shuts so we are not freezing, but its a pain in the butt being confined to pne room every day. It's been a pain in the butt. We are putting money back slowly so we can get it fixed. This time of year just sucks. I'm beyond sick of it.

I agree our cable was cut off and our phones for about a month n half. i could have cared less about those they arent something you have to have.. I just did the phone calls that i needed to from work and watched movies that we had at home so the 4 year old didnt get too bored. but i would have rather had food for them to eat and gas to get to work It sucks but I know eventually we will all get through it. feel free to add me if you want its kinda nice to talk to someone who understands!!
