Everything turns to shit. Everything. Both of our cars are down because the family members that gave them to us ran them into the ground. We don't have the money to replace an engine and transmission. Our foodstamps were terminated because we got a paper in the mail saying we didn't turn everything in even though I turned everything in that was on the list. DH had been getting rides to work from a coworker that lived 2 streets over from us but he got a new job so he can't anymore. They gave the promotion DH earned to the new guy because for fun I cut DH's hair into a mohawk(he wears a hat all day but an a*****e he works with that's close with the boss told him 'hes too unpredictable' ...they work in a warehouse cleaning & stocking batteries for cars, tractors, etc)I was willing to recut it as well. They just didn't give him a chance to :( I ruined it. Our son is only a bit over 5 months old & is EBF with severe separation anxiety or i'd get a job. My mother was going to give me her Expedition but her husband used it to tow a boat & ruined the transmission on it too. Idk what to do. DH is having to walk to work tomorrow, we are running out of groceries & I have no idea how to make things better :(

we were in the same spot too. mil took back the car she was letting us buy bc she hates me and wanted to try to control us. so ended up getting a job a mile from our house with more money. things are still hard and now we have to save up for a car but its better than it was. just think you will get threw it! and him not getting a promotion at that type of job bc of a haircut is redic! the guy that got the promotion probably talked shit and talked his way into it which is fine. if he isnt as suited for the job as your so he will fail

The other guy kissed so much ass it was embarassing LOL. I don't wish failure on him but I know he'll mess up. He's one of those that has way too much sarcasm in his voice & is a total condescending douche bag. He's dealing directly with bulk battery buyers too so if he loses a national account he will be fired instantly

I hear ya. My mothers buying me a stroller so I'll be walking everywhere I need to during the day. I need to exercise anyways. I just feel bad for DH because he works so hard :( I think I might meet him tomorrow walking to make him feel better & bring him something to drink
