Money and Mums the word

I guess that has been why I have been so quiet-money or the lack there of... It has become apprent that we may need a different car-especially when the new baby comes.Problem is-there is no room in the budget for a car payment and the whole thing has spun me into a bit of depression as I have to figure out how to bring in money and make sure my son is taken care of... So I haven't been much into talking about other things for awhile since I am having this inner battle.I don't judge other people by saying this-it is just how I feel-and I feel wrong for having someone take care of MY CHILD we created 40 hours a week just because of the allmighty dollar.I am a terrible decision maker so to solve this problem I have to do lots of research and figure out some sort of solution so I have been trying to do just that lately.I am just having ahard time with it emotionally and to top it all off when I lived in NY the job market there was so bad.I mean so bad as in people with Masters degrees competing for $8 jobs.Hence the last coupdl fo jobs I had were low pay and sucked so bad.My resume looks awful and I just frankly have no confidence when it comes to getting a job at all so that adds to this dilema.I guess I will figure it out I have to somehow.Plus I'm pregnant and I don't know how employers react to that thinking I will be gone 8 weeks int he near future.Oh what to do-it is such a dilema.I am looking forward going to NY for a couple weeks around the 22nd and when I get back then I can look for some type of job.It would be nice to visit some people I know,especially family,I need it right now.

I'm sorry hon! I wish I could offer some advice but I'm just learning the money stuff myself. What kind of car do you have now?

I'm sorry, Kitty. I can relate only too well to your money situation. We barely make it every month and I juggle bills like I work in a carnival.

I guess I try to make it as a WAHM because I think such a high percentage of my salary would go towards childcare that it wouldn't be worth it.

I have a Honda but Joe has an old truck we could trade in that really we can't even put Griffin in-it's not safe or legal lol My car has a lot of miles on it but if something happens to it we're in big doo doo.I juggle the bills too it just seems between gas,food,and the heating bill we still owe on top of everything else taps us out...
