So, child support is late... again. But this time, we're negative $5 in the bank and have maybe $7 in cash to last the rest of the month, since we were (stupid of me!) expecting it to come in. So, right after I finally get up the gumption and hyperventilating to send an email to the EX's employer to find out when the check is to be mailed, I call the child support office (third time today) and get a new response... oh ya! We just got a check in!

Nice....That was one panic attack I didn't even need to have apparently. And, now I'll be jumpy for a couple days, waiting to see if there is a response from the a**h****. Ugh. I'm feeling kinda dumb on top of being really emotionally drained now.

Having only $7 with two weeks and a major holiday between you and more money is a good reason to panic.

Things are definitely getting better. We're all starting to calm down and relax more. My in-laws have agreed to watch the kids for three days after Christmas (for my birthday! - I can't believe I'll be 29), while I'm still on break, so I'm holding out until then for some good rest and recuperation time. But, also - 1 week and 1 day until my Christmas break starts. It'll be really nice to be at home for a little while.
