Pressures of Debt

 Debt I beleive is a number one killer of a marriage.The pressure of trying to make enough money just to pay the bills each week,and that is only the bills there are no room for extras going out to dinner or to a movie,just work,pay the bills and try to keep it together.I work from the home in daycare,he is the primary bread winner.But it is all up to me to deal with the collection calls,talk to our creditors and try to finda plan to keep it all together.Then the stress and resentment builds and once a week there is a major blow-up.Sometimes I think is it worth it?But when your too poor to afford a lawyer for divorce you have no choice but stick it out.And that is what I really want to do,I don't want a divorce,I just us to be happy,the debt monster slain,and learn from our mistakes.I"m in my 40's,I donot want to live the rest of my life like this.It is easy to say just go get a job but when you have no skills,the only thing is min.wage jobs and by the time you pay a sitter there is no sense of even working.

Britney

  It is sad that we are more preocupied with Britney's trials and tribulations than more important things going on in our world,and hey I'm just as guilty about reading and watching about Britney than the next person.But  it is so sad with someone with all that money and fame is going down the drain so fast.To think she could choise a differant path reinvent herself once she is clean and launch a new career in childrens clothing or whatever,if she gets it together and gets her kids back.I hope she does get it together for the sake of the kids,and I hope Kevin provides the boys with a safe loving enviroment.

11/02 Teacher Sex Scandal, Pt. 2

  I think the former students are not telling the truth,but I also beleive the teacher had many mistakes getting too close to some of her students.I think in some ways she acted unprofessionaly like with the notes,you just should not do things like that,you are suppose to be a mentor not a peer. With that being said I'am so tired of teachers acting inappropriately with students.At the high school my son attends a teacher was arrested two years ago for inappropriate conduct with a student.He had affairs with three former students,the last one came forward,he is now serving time in prison for that along with unrelated charges,and still maitains his innocence.lol.I also beleive there are many many resopnsible dedicated teachers out there,and I admire them for what they do for our kids.

HE IS LYING!!!!

     I certainly hope the family is able to keep her home and away from him!It bothered me that every time he "answered"a question from Dr. Phil,he put his head down and could not even look at the monitor.Strange.I sincerly hope all turns out well for this family.

Proud Mom Over 40

  I was 6 weeks short of my 40th birthday when I gave birth to my third and final child.He is now 5 with his sibs 16 and 10.He is a joy and I could not imagine how quiet our house would be without this little bundle of energy.Sure,sometimes I feel like I can't keep up with him like I did the other two but that is okay.With age comes a few perks,such as more patience.Plus the older sibs are a great help too.The 10 year old is the mother hen and the 16 year old  is there to help show him how to pass a football or baseball,and we are active parents in our kids lives.

Dealing With Debt

 This post is for those who are struggling to pay their mortgages or credit card debt or any other debt for that matter.Times are tough and I fear things are only going to get worse.Now is the the time for all of us to get  it together.That includes my family too!I have a couple of suggestions for dealing with credit card debt.Check out Consumer Credit Couseling of Atlanta,and Crown Financial Ministries.Also for frugal meal ideas and household tips check out Tawra Kellam Living On A Dime website.We all make mistakes.Some of us are one step away from financial disaster.But the real shame is not doing anything about our obligations and continuing to let them pile up and cost more $$$$$.There is hope out there,there is a light at the end of the tunnel.

Help with food budget during these hard times

 We found another way to help stretch our grocery budget.Check out the website angel food ministries,for $30.00 you can order a box of food,that will feed a family of four for a week.See if they have a host site in your area.My family tried it last month,and it was okay.They even accept food stamps.One of the benfits I could see from it when I do go to the grocery store that week I only have to but my staples like sugar,flour,bread,milk,etc. since I allready have the main dishes planned.
