I don't mean to complain, because I should be thankful for the fact that my husband and I both have jobs and I know we could be far worse off than we are.
It just bugs me a lot that we're not really much better off than we were before I started working.
We're still behind on all our bills. I'm getting calls from debt collectors for old bills I wasn't able to pay. I've got about a million and one things coming up that I need funds for, but I don't know where those funds are coming from.
I have an appointment to get my cat fixed next week, my husband needs some car repairs so his car can be inspected by the end of this month, plus the twins' birthday is in 2 weeks and Christmas is just over a month away!
I've been looking for a part-time evening job to get us through the Christmas season, but nobody local is hiring. Target flat out told me they didn't want me.. and I have no idea why! I can't imagine why a retail place wouldn't want to hire a bank teller as a part-time cashier!
We've been trying to cut back on our bills. We got DirectTV instead of cable and that was going to save us a few bucks a month. Then I decided we might as well completely cut out the TV for now.. so I called to cancel DirectTV but they told me I'm locked into a 2 year contract now (even though I signed up less than 30 days ago) and it will cost $500 to buy out of the contract! GRR..
So, when I"m not working, or going to school, or doing my mommy duties.. I'm searching job websites to see who's hiring and trying to apply for either a better job than I currently have, or at least an additional part-time job to help with finances for now!
It's tough sometimes.
