I took an unexpected blogging hiatus this past month...because things have been stressful.
Long time readers know that DH and I have had our issues. We've been in counseling once a week since January. Things would be good for awhile...then we'd get into an argument and things would explode into an all out shouting match...complete with divorce threats. Things have been much better lately as we try to implement some of the things we've learned in our sessions. Our finances, however, remain our stressor.
DH is still not working. It's been 10 months. Unless something changes, his unemployment will cease in December. We're squeaking by every month thanks to being "private" clients at our Bank...which means no OD fees when (not if) we fall short, which has been alot lately. All our bills are current, but our savings is gone. We have a little money set aside for things for Lexi for school...like the book fair or popcorn day...so she can take $2 or $3 and take part in the activity. We've pulled her out of her daycare, which she was only going one day a week anyway, but she misses her friends at "little school" and doesn't understand why she can't go anymore.
We have 2 appointments tomorrow with bankruptcy attorneys for their free consultations. We don't want to go down this route...but we may not have any other option.
