Do I have my Mommie School time pants and my mommy head ready yet????
I don't think so..One, I'm no where near ready for that pace of life yet... and besides, I can't fit into those pants anymore... I think they fell somewhere in between the ever growing muffin top and the Honey-why are my pants shrinking?... Summer was way too short.. Yeah yeah yeah.. I know.. It's NOT quite over just yet.. Hey, I can freak out over here if I want to..
my daughter come's home in just ONE week from Daddy summer camp, then I have to take her shopping for school clothes on what Little bit of child support I have gotten.. Then in less than one more week after that my Son will come home to visit so I can take Him Shopping for school clothes too (to drain me completely dry of that Child support I mentioned) Don't ask. It's a screwed up situation... He is living with his father, but the courts are still making his father pay me the support for him.. And it's way too long of a story to get into... IE. I take our son school shopping. lol. How on earth am I going to get everything done and managed.. I guess I will be splitting it up over a period of several months. I think SHOES should be the first thing they get.. Don't you? First we assess the need for shoes...
Thanks to the ever slumping Economy and the "No - I haven't gotten called in for a job yet MOM" problem that doesn't seem to helping our living situation AT ALL. Plus, my Fiance Can't get a job right now since he is having to take care of his father's farm now he found out that his father has been given a mere few MONTH'S to live .... His father was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer about 3 months ago. He's been getting Chemo and wasn't able to eat because of a mass in his stomach. They said they had to get the mass down so they could do surgery, so when they checked just a week ago they said the mass was shrinking and they gave him YEARS on his lifespan.
Then all of a sudden Two days ago at his check up " Oh we're sorry that was a mistake. We thought the mass was shrinking, but unfortunately is wasn't it grew 3 times larger Mr Barber." Bastards. Excuse my language.... They took him in for surgery yesterday to bypass the stomach and put in tube so he could eat liquids at least and get his strength back up some. My Fiance is a mess. He's working the farm for his father. So at the moment we have NO income coming in except my child support. So you can imagine my stress level right now.
My kids HAVE to have school clothes and supplies. I"m hitting up churches for clothes and school supplies at the School fair. I have family but they are all " it's not our problem your in this situation". Yeah, thanks... Better off not having family... My oldest Son is in the Army and he sends my other son (that lives with his father) some money now and then to help him out. SO I don't bother him...
We have food stamps so we eat... We thank the gods for what have and we are happy and healthy. That's all we need I suppose. We do without.. How do we have internet you ask? lol.. We graciously piggy back off of our kind neighbors.. We have this awesome old computer that my ex husband gave me when I divorced him 2 years ago. It's on it's last leg and it is going to die on me sooner or later. I just know it... and every fun and exciting I have, I have gotten as a freebie from blogging. As you well know how many awesome things you can get from blogging. Like the George Foreman Grill I got for Entering a recipe contest. If you feel like you would like to visit my blog some time. I would love to see you there. www.amomsrantings.com
