Sara- What about exercising/walking? Does that help?

If he was my brother and he moved in and we had absolutely no money, I would tell him he needs to go down to Labor Ready (temp usually one day placement jobs) and get some money for this months rent or he can sell something on Craigslist, get rid of every bill of his own for now, no phone - uses yours for jobs and gives you the money he would have used to keep his phone going, walks most everywhere or stays home except for looking for a job, absolutely no fast food, living on Mac n Cheese, no movie rentals (any of that money goes to you). He can go stand in line to get food from the food bank for the family and then he can come home and cook it while your not feeling so great, he can clean for you while you're down leaving one less thing for dh to focus on. I've watched lots of friends in your position over the years and watched the dh's blood pressure spike while family is mooching off of them. My advice is just don't let it be a free ride and make sure he knows what is expected of him.

Since dh has been unemployed so long are you getting food assistance, if so let them know that you have another mouth to provide food for. So sorry all of you have to be in this position in the first place
Yes I totally see where your coming from and believe me we are coming from the same place. I would totally expect him to use his food stamps (he just got them) to feed him self and chip in around the house. And this is the first time since moving away from our mom's house he has needed help like this. But it is not the first time we have housed family. Dh's family has gotten more help from us then seems possible. He is the youngest brother of 9 but you'd never know that the way 5 or 6 of them are always asking us for a place to crash for a few weeks or money for what ever they think hey need. So I expect dh to deal with my brother the same. Yes it sucks but he'd move heaven and earth if it was his brother so the least he can do is allow my brother to sleep on the couch for a bit. Sorry rant over I just dislike that he brought up all the extra water and electricity it's going to cost, right away. But a month or two ago he let two of his brothers move in with out even talking to me first (well he did talk to me but there was really no chance to say no kind of talk).

Anyway my brother said his church is going to be paying his rent for Oct and if he doesn't have a job by then he plans to move in with my mother. My brother says he's fine and has had plenty of food, and things but my mom says he's lying to me and just won't ask for help. I've been trying to offer him stuff but he won't take it so I can't make him come live here or make him eat dinner with me like my mom apparently thinks I should be doing. I'm so over the whole thing. I hope he does find a job or move in with my mom so that I'm not needed anymore. Sorry really done now.

Oh and yes we have food stamps for us too.

Re: August 2009 Two Year Olds!

Krisha I hope you feel better it sounds like you have a lot on your plate right now.

Ellen- Come out, come out, your Mommy wants to see you already.

Morgan, it is so hard for some people to accept their parents for who they are. My sister still is mad at our father, it is like she expects better, from a guy who has never done better. For me I am more at peace, long ago, I realised he is the person he has always been he will not change, and in some ways I don't think he can. His life is not happy but he made it. Dh still has some anger towards family for blatant favoritism, but he see's in the long run he was fine without the crap. It can be tough, but don't let her get you down, and make it clear your plans trump her plans. You are the Momma!!!

And woo hoo on your secret package sounds so fun!!!


AFM- still getting stuff tagged for the sale and got rid of a ton of kitchen stuff today. Some one was supposed to come buy diapers from me today but I think she is flaking ugh!!!!!!

I want to add I don't want fall to come yet, I want to enjoy my pool for a little longer. I am going to miss having it so much!

I haven't stopped since I left work this morning... It's been go go go. I'm sooooo exhausted. We are having that yard sale tomorrow. It better be worth it for the effort I put into it today!

Hadley, I do yoga every other day and I'm on my feet walking most of the day too. So I don't know why I cant poop except for the prego part of me

Re: August 2009 Two Year Olds!

I'm getting more and more stressed out over here. I just don't know how we will fit another person in our house. That and we need to buy a new vehicle and this birth will cost about $10,000 (max out of pocket before insurance will kick in).

I just don't know what we are going to do. We have looked at cheaper places to move to about an 1.5 hours away, but then DH would need to find a new job because in commute traffic, it would be over 2 hours each way. We just don't know what to do
