My brakes have been really bad since like september, I just havent had money to fix them. Well obviously they got worse! I cant stop with just my e-brake anymore, i have to throw it in neutral in order to stop. well thats hardly working anymore. DF and I went out and bought brakes and rotors. well, we had a friend do them, and he came over and MY CALIPER EXPLODED! so now i have to buy calipers (which i dont have ANYMORE money for!) which are like 40 dollars a caliper! i only HAVE 40 dollars until tomorrow, then idk how much ill have. i broke down last night and bawled, asking df what we were doing! why we were bringing a baby into this family! and i know that im not the poorest person out there, but we are soo screwed! i havent paid my gas and electric bill for march yet! and rents due in a few days! -sigh- im really down today!
i just checked irs.gov and df's income tax should be in our bank tomorrow!!! YAYAY!!! =))
I think everybody goes through this sometimes.
Me and DF have hit a rough patch as much as he denies it.
He always says "We are going to be okay?"
I sometimes wonder the same thing too, where will I be next year with two children and barely any spending money as it is?... maybe we shouldn't think or say things like this??

ohh im so sorry honey!!! I know exactly how you feel about the money issue and bringing a baby into the world!! I have my own house and DF obviously lives with me and his good friend rents out the basement... so everything bills, food etc was split 3 ways work GREAT for the first 3 months. Then DF got his hours cut in HALF at work and the roommate got layed off!!!! so now i feel like im carrying both of them.. its horrible!!!!! everytime i think about money i breakdown crying and all DF can say is "everything is going to be fine" then i start screaming about how im the only one who pays the bills and buys food etc etc... i mean his little bit does help, but usually he spends it before he gets it, energy drinks cigs.. etc etc...
see DF has a job, but its a crappy one. and so do i. there are NO jobs here in toledo. and i know once we get his income tax, we should be better. we can at least do my brakes.
the thing that sucks. is that it all started bcs his pay roll messed up with his check and they arent sending him another check. they are giving him little bits at a time! he got paid for 12 hours when he worked 40. last check he got 3 minutes added on to his check! SERIOUSLY!
and he told his manager he needs the money now. do y ou think his f**k tard of a manager cared?! NO!!!
i just have to keep reminding myself, it always gets worse before it gets better.
thats a good way to look at it. i was raised that if you put faith in whoever you believe in im not gonna pin point one god b/c people get so touchy, but if you put faith in whoever you believe in things work out for the best you will not believe how many times my husband and i have been flat broke and didnt know how we were going to pay bills. My husband is a soldier and let me tell you girls they def dont get paid what they should for what they do. my mother always told me not to sweat the small stuff b/c its all small stuff. and i tell my husband everything is going to be ok. and in the end everything works out. you cant go threw life stressing you will be old b4 your time and its not like your not doing all you can to support your family. those who try get rewarded in the end!! keep your head up and im glad that you got some good news!!!!
