Random Thoughts and Poetry

Thoughts, poems and information

My son and daughter are having a terrible year. I am too, but I am not really concerned about myself. I had to tell them there is no such thing as Santa. There is no way I'll be able to celebrate Christmas this year. I can't even get us an artificial tree. I've been checking craigslist to no avail. My job is giving me a measly 4-10.5 hours a week. Their dad walked out on us and his job. I have no clue when or if social services will help us. God only knows how long we'll keep the apartment, the cats and the phones. The only bill I've been able to keep current is the electric bill. The kids are both not feeling well and I can't get them any cold medicine. I can barely afford to wash our laundry. We're down to our last 4 rolls of toilet paper and my son who has sensory motor issues is down to his last 2 baby wipes. Ugh! The kids are gonna drive me nuts next week once they cut off the cable and internet. Can I just pull out my hair, curl up in a ball and cry? I'm sick and I gave my son the last of the medicine since the dayquil had directions for a dosage for his age. Now excuse me while I cry as I try not to hack up my lung and keep my brain from exploding during multiple sneezes. Keep us in your thoughts and prayers.

I have to put in as many job applications as possible while I still have internet service. I have til Sunday!
