only worse from here

Tuesday, May 22, 2012

we're sorta poor...i mean, we pay our bills, and we manage. we have what we need. we can't take vacation or anything like that but i don't care. we don't take the car on frivolous trips; just to grocery shop and to work. our fun is a ride on the motorcycle. but in a few months, we're going to be losing about $600 a month plus my medical. that's gonna make this worse for sure. not really sure how we're gonna manage, and i'm really scared. i pray alot.
i wonder how many other people have such things to worry over.

    It's very tough out here for many of us. SP is kinda a LALA land where everyone seems happy happy. But the reality plays behind the scenes.

    You have not given up on yourself. You now know you are the only one that can make it happen for you.

    You have the power to succeed or fail.

    You have chosen to succeed.

    Few baby steps complete a long journey

    Writing is progress!!!

    Your not alone TICKELBEE, DH lost his job 4 yrs. ago, on unemployment 3yrs., ran it, no income for 3 months, then he finally got called the week before Christmas for a maintenance job at a hotel. Thank God. Pay isn't much more then enemployment was and no benefits, I had to have OR 2 yrs. ago, I got some fiancial aide from the hospital, took 2 yrs. to get the rest paid off. We've been struggling ever since. I know I worry so much and I'm scard to death at times too. We don't take vacations or trips and other stuff either. We've had a camper for about 20 yrs. now and when DH lost his job, we thought we'd have to sale it and quit camping, at least till things improved. Well we started camp hosting at the campground we've gone to for about 30 yrs, it's free camping and firewood We have several jobs to do, but we love it. It's harder now DH is working cause I'm there most of the time by myself. But we want to keep our foot in the door so not to lose senority. Our son lost his job 3 weeks after DH. He fianlly found a job the week before Christmas last yrs. They have a 2 1/2 yr. old beautiful little girl . She has been such a joy !!!
    l tell ya' one thing, we need to learn how to not to worry so much, so if you do, please let me know. ; } People don't realize how much worring does to our bodies. It makes us sick !!! We have to learn to take a day at a time, like you said pray a lot, Put ourselves in God's hands. And never give up hope !!! We'll all get through these rough times. I'll keep you and your family in my prayers.
    Good luck to all of you !
    Love ya', Flutterfli emoticon
