I'm just sick of having no money, having credit card debt that we just made really bad last night (went clothes shopping for DH because he had no decent dress shirts that fit him, nor any slacks, etc... Ended up buying him a suit!!! I know in the long run, he has been needing one for a *LONG* time and the reason we decided to go out and get him one now, is he has 2 interviews this week, plus a wedding coming up at the end of the month, etc... and we basically no longer could keep ignorning it). Then DD has literally been wearing 2 pairs of leggings to school for about the last month and I have even sewed them up a few times. All her shorts from last year got to be *too short*, so found her 2 pair of Capri's so she could at least have something decent to wear to school especially on those really hot days now (she's hard to fit..so when we actually FIND pants that fit, we feel like doing cartwheels!! ROFLMBO!!). Anyway, came home and put what we spent into Quicken and it's SOOOOO depressing to see the number going up instead of down. I'm almost back to my $10,000 credit card debt (the only good thing I guess is the suit, is on a 0% interest deal (and it doesn't go up, this dept. store never charges interest on their card), so we won't be paying any extra than if we had paid cash plus they do the alterations on it for free). Just seems like I'm back to square one and we are never going to get out of this hole.
I keep looking toward the future as to *things will get better* but doesn't seem like it anytime soon and I'm just depressed/annoyed about the situation. I *want* to be able to go buy my kids new clothes when theres are literally falling apart/they've outgrown them (if they wouldn't grow, this would work out MUCH better. ;) ) without adding to the credit card debt, etc.. Or not feel like I have to scrape together money when field trip money is due, etc...
I just feel like saying "I quit" why do I try so hard, we aren't getting anywhere...of course logically I know that things could be a lot worse and you always have to keep trying and eventually we will get there (out of debt).
Anyway, I'm done for my complaining...I'm just in a whiny mood today and am feeling a little trapped in the money department (I guess seeing how we are getting close to the wire with money 1 more month of mortgage, etc... and not really sure we will ever get off unemployment and start making more money than expenses!!! Making me cranky!!). Maybe I should take a nap and it will all go away when I wake up ROFLMBO!!!!
