Re: I feel like crying.

Have you tried calling all your utility/phone companies and getting an extension? Especially if you let them know that your DH has just started a second job but that you haven't seen any pay from that yet, they may be able to help you. Also, many utility companies can give you a budget plan where they take your past due balance and divide it up over the next 12 months so that you're not in a big hole anymore, but you have to ask them - they won't just offer. The only downside is that you have to make those next 12 payments on time or they can shut you off in 24 hours. You're getting into energy assistance time so if you are still having trouble in the next few weeks, you should apply for that.

I know how hard this is, mama. We've been there ourselves not that long ago. Do you have any friends or family that you can turn to for some short-term help?

Thank you.
My electric is in my landlords name we just go down and pay it. I did get an extention on both the phone and electric thats why it is so high now. Monday there is a place open that provided you have the right paperwork in order you can get half your rent paid for so say a prayer for me. They only accept the first 20 so i have to be there at 6;30 am to try to get in line for 7:00.

Re: I feel like crying.

Ok DH starts his second job in the morning. I feel good and bad. I am happy we will eventually get caught up (Mid November is the goal) But i wont see him at all from 7 am to 11pm. He might have time to pop in between jobs to get his dinner to take to work but thats it. Man Im gonna miss him.

Re: I feel like crying.

Well its been a tough week. The landlord came by and said if we didnt pay the WHOLE electric bill by today we were out. We have a payment arrangement schedule you know so much each week and DH tried to explain that to him but he wasnt hearing it. DH is hoping he has cooled down by today. He is going to try to talk to him. I am looking into new places just in case but with very limited funds i dont know what to do. If the landlord will let us stay until next friday we would have that decent paycheck from DH's new job. Ok just wanted to keep you updated. Thanks for the prayers ladies!

Has your landlord already started the eviction process? Evictions take a LOT more time than a week.

Re: I feel like crying.

My heart goes out to you mama and you are in our prayers. I have a couple of Swaddlebees outlet OS Pocket diapers that I can send your way if you can use them. I bought them myself from the outlet a couple of months ago and they come with the OS combo insert.
