I know I'm in the same boat as everybody else, but sometimes it's just so bleak. 2 kids in 2 years (2yo and 3mo) - one income (my husbands, and not very much for a fam. of 4), which equals to no money. My husband doesn't want me to work and to be honest I don't really want to put my kids in daycare (had to with my older child and I cried every single day). All of that I can deal with...this is the wringer - we have 2 vehicles, only one of which I can drive(automatic), and it just so happens that that is the one that is broken down. Without the money to bring it to the shop, my husband is the one fixing it on the weekends when he's not at work. Therefore, the only way to leave the house is when I need groceries/dr. appt and have to ask family to bring me, and my husband is gone to a friend's shop to work on the truck on the weekends.
There is no solution, time will take care of the situation... he is currently looking for a better paying job, I will go back to work in the near future, and eventually he's GOT to be finished with the truck - right?
Losing my mind in this house - haven't gone anywhere but the grocery store and dr.'s in 3 weeks - and my husband just got home to tell me that he wasn't going to be able to fix everything on the truck this weekend. That means a solid month for me in this house with 2 kids - cooking, cleaning, screaming and crying.
I love my children AND my husband, and really life is good.
But moments like right this instant make me feel like I might know how prison feels (except with better food.)
Anyway, thanks for letting me complain. I feel better...lol
