Ok.. I think I'll cry now.

It's almost 8 pm and things are starting to sink in a bit. This morning Dan went outside to get on his motorcycle to go to work and found that someone stole it. Right out of our parking spot while we were sleeping. So now we don't have a commuter vehicle and are left with just the truck. Which in some cases might be ok except I have kids to cart to school and back. Not to mention we still have to make payments on it and it is highly unlikley we'll ever see it again.

Dan's talking about taking a 3rd job. I really don't know if our relationship can withstand a 3rd job. We barely see each other as it is and I know we both resent each other for it. Him because he hates having to work 24/7 and me because he's never home. But alas we really have no other choices.

We can't afford for me to work outside the home and I'm not qualified to do anything. I've been a SAHM since I was 19 years old. The things I do know how to do, I have taught myself so there's no formal training. I've been turned down for several jobs because I've had to disclose my medical condition. I know they can't not hire me for medical reasons so they just say it's something else, but I know the real reason.

I feel very stuck and hopeless right now and I don't even know where to go from here.


  1. I am sorry to hear of your hard time. I know that as a complete stranger, there is not much I can say, but all I can say, is that you are not alone and just sharing your story shows you are not alone. When we really find out, everyone has problems. Keep your chin up and try to keep busy and positive! Happy thought to you! pop over my blog -there is a freebie there you might like!
