I think I need a visit from Mulder and Scully or some sort of Debt Message Board exorcism.

I'm sorry you're so exhausted - but hopefully this will be a means to an end. On the to-do-list while you may not be up to a lot of cooking perhaps you can go to the grocery store and buy things like Stouffer's party-size lasagna and other stuff like that where you can just heat them up and then they'll last for a few days? Eating out/buying lobster tail will eat up all the extra money you're making in no time! I should talk - my allergies have been making me miserable off and on the last couple of weeks and we've been eating out more than normal too. Plus my daughter's softball games in the afternoon/early evenings haven't helped either. I think rest is probably called for today no matter what.

Awww Kate, I'm sorry you're dealing with this. I'm glad you and DD were able to make it through the cuts (is she permanent now???)
Is there an M&M Meatshop anywhere near you? They have great stuff that you can heat up and serve and it tastes pretty good. While not as cheap as making it yourself, its a lot better than lobster. Plus they have great weekly sales too!
That aside. If you slept for 17 hours, there was a reason. Go with it. Its your body telling you something!

I have to say that if you slept 17 hours, you definitely needed the sleep, so don't feel guilty.

Oh goodness, your body definately needed that rest!

What is done is done. Sounds like it is time for a day with the parents and their car so you can do some serious grocery shopping.

Hugs...

Awe Kate, you always have me rolling. I wish I could calculate my overspending that way, it would help me keep current spending in check. And as far as 17 hours of sleep, much better than a 2-7 day illness suffered from being so exhausted you catch something.
I used to live glued to a do-to list and things I needed to accomplish, now I am so much less stressed letting life happen and participating, with less stress.
You are doing great, cut yourself a bit of slack!
