I am finally in a place of surrender, and decided that I am going to ask my boss to work more hours. I am finally broker than broke, and after talking to my SO last night, it finally became clear.
SO was kind, but firm with me that it was time to do this. He understands it is not where I want to stay for much longer, but while I am still undecided about what to do next, and while going to school, I really needed to do something.
I am going to look at my expenses and take a realistic look at what I want to propose to my boss. His DD works here on my two days off, so not sure how this will pan out. She doesn't really do anything, and isn't here half of the time anyways, so I don't think asking for more hours will be an issue. I may even be willing to go back to full-time.
Oh, and on a side note, I am not going to take any student loans. It is just a band-aid and will probably come back to bite me in butt later. I won't take a student loan unles it is absolutely necessary.
I am also going to review the household expenses with SO, and make sure we are on the same page with what his contribution is.
I also had sort of an awakening that I think I want to make a two year financial goal. I will feel better about working more hours, especially if I go back to full-time, if I can see some light at the end of the tunnel.
One thing at a time. So, watch this thread and I will update after I talk to my boss. Wish me luck!
