I am so down and frustrated right now!!!! First off, Colton is 4mos old and I really want to get him an exersaucer or jumperoo or something that he can play with and that will help him with learning to grab etc... but we have no money. So I was going to wait until the 15th (when we got paid) and get him something. Then Friday I check the mail and we have a disconnect notice for our power to be turned off today (13th). The bill is $829! We have no money. The bad part is my FIL paid the other half the end of July and I made NUMEROUS calls to make pymt arrangements for the remainder but never got a return call. The only reason I didn't/couldn't make a pymt last month was because our insurance premium was due and that was $724! We live in my in-laws rental house and it's old. It has really old single pane windows and our power bills are ridiculous. So then today DH gets a call and he goes to return it and our phones are off! We only have cell phones. I just made a pymt last week! So now we have no phones. I know we are behind but usually I am able to keep just one step ahead of it with pymt arrangements (we have Verizon so they are pretty good about it). I am just really tired of living like this. I just want to be able to pay our bills and be able to buy my son things, is that too much to ask?

(((HUGS))) I hope you can get things worked out soon. Check goodwill, I have seen those in there sometimes and try some the used kid stores and see if they have one.

I don't know what to do. All this stress is making me a bad mother. My poor baby is in his room as I type screaming his head off cause I just can't deal with it right now without losing my temper.
I hate my husband right now, I really do. He got paid yesterday but it was $300 short of what I was expecting! So now no 4mos pictures for Colton today, no toy, no nothing. We barely have enough $$ to pay the electric bill, cell phones, and buy dog food and put gas in his jeep for work. How are we suppose to survive until the 30th?!?!?! I hate this. I'm afraid all this stress is going to cause my milk supply to take a nose dive!
My husband has become a really lazy bum around the house too. I know he works hard and sometimes doesn't get home from work until 7-8pm but it takes 1 min to take the garbage to the road, it takes 2 min to feed the dogs, it takes 20 min to wash a sink full of dishes that I obviously didnt have time to do! I don't even feel like he's my husband anymore since Colton's been born. He sleeps on the couch 75% of the time cause he's too lazy to get up and come to bed. We don't DTD, haven't since I was 8 mos pregnant. He doesn't even kiss me etc....I feel like we're roommates. I feel like I need to get away for a few days....

Just as an FYI... we got a few "we are going to turn off power" notices and guess what? It NEVER got turned off! lol I think they are full of it. I'm assuming it's Seattle City Light? You will be fine.

We have a Whinnie the Pooh exersaucer you can borrow or have! It's in our attic so it needs to be cleaned off. I wasn't wanting to put her in it yet so you can have it!

Are you working? If not you might want to think about gaining employment.

I might be reading it wrong but you hate your husband because he didn't bring home enough money? He's the sole provider am I correct?
