The past 48 hours have bitch slapped me hard.
First the ex informs me that due to an error in his payments to me, I now owe him a ton of money that I do not have. I am barely surviving on what he pays me; I definitely don't have extra cash lying around. Supporting myself and two kids on less that half of what it used to be isn't working. However, due to our divorce settlement, if I go to work and need to put the kids in daycare I need to pay for it all myself. Kind of negates the money I would make working.
And now summer is upon us. Which means kids 24/7. Which means when I do work, I need to scramble to find childcare.
Then I found out that a big contract I was about to sign is up in the air. It was going to alleviate some of the financial pressure.
Then to top it all today, Ethan started throwing up.
Feeling pretty down. I know this is just a moment in time--it doesn't mean things are really this bad. But man, it feels like crap.
I created a Pinterest board to wallow in for a while. Join me if you too are having a bad day or three.
