bills are and we talked about our income versus what we spend every month. I still
haven't told him about how we're behind on the house and how I plan on borrowing the
money from my mom.
I think we might have to file bankruptcy. The amount we HAVE to pay out every month is
$2803 not including gasoline and groceries. The amount we bring in per month is $3116(10
months out of the year--the other 2 months it's $2416. So for 2 months out of the year
we're charging groceries and gasoline(and now all the cards are maxed out!). The other
10 months we only have $313 a month for gorceries, gasoline, and anything else we need for a family with 4 kids. That doesn't cover money for clothes, shoes, birthdays, school
I'm so ashamed I've let things get so bad. I have no one to talk to about these things.
My mom, my in-laws, my friends would croak if they ever bounced a check. My mother-in-law
was so shocked that someone she knows whose husband had just died had no savings.
My mom keeps telling me most people struggle when they are just starting out and with
young children. She has no idea how bad it is for us.
Anyway, I'm glad to find this board and I'm so glad for all the support and advice I
received from ya'll yesterday. ~~~Angie
