ok so, 2013 ended badly with my mother in law passing. She was a typical mother in law, passing judgement and thinking she is offering advise, when she was directly telling me how to look after my son. But I did like the lady, she helped me learn how to cook things, she made jokes alot and knew how to put her foot down so her son would listen to me.
My partner is a mommy’s boy and my son loved his nanny dearly. just before that occurrence, my partner quit his job as his boss’s were pains in the asses. So we were struggling pretty bad on just my wage.
my partner wasn’t coping being home all by himself alone in his thoughts. he is just finding his feet now and trying to move on with life.
Then a month ago, his father has 2 heart attacks. he survived it and has had the surgery to fix it and he will be going home soon.. he is a great man and I hope this surgery gives him another 20 years and more..
I am $10,000 in credit card debt from a year on living on one wage and living off the bare essentials and trying to live within our means, but once the bills comes and I haven’t had a chance to save enough, the credit card goes in more debt :'(
I am hoping once my partner starts this job he just got that the debt he has put me in from not working slowly decreases.. once can only hope right?
