But I'll post anyways, since I'm pretty frustrated about our financial situation! DH works 72+ hours a week, and we do pretty good. Not worth 72 hours a week, but we're ok. The thing is, our bills always seem to exceed our income! I don't know how, but we're always broke and scrimping for money to buy stuff like diapers and wipes. It's like the better DH does at work, the worse our situation gets! It's just so frustrating and what doesn't help is that it's summer and I'm not babysitting right now. During the school year I make about $150-$200 a week watching two girls. But it's summer, so no kids and no income. Also, I watch my 6 year old SIL from about 7 to 6 in the evening, and while my MIL promised to pay me, it's been a month and a half and nothing. She keeps telling me she's so broke, but her boyfriend (who she lives with and wants to marry her) is sitting around buying himself iphones and buying my SIL a nintendo Wii even though she's 6 years old. Also my MIL works for the government, and she just got a pretty big pay raise, and yet she can't pay for me to take care of her selfish little brat. I love DH's family, but they are frustrating. DH is frustrating, and I'm frustrated with myself. I can't work because I wouldn't be able to get a job that would cover the cost of day care for two children and leave something left over to take home.
So...yeah. Our finances are killing me and I don't know what to do! We're barely staying afloat as it is, and if our rent continues to increase I don't know how we're going to be able to make ends meet.:(
