Swirling Thoughts 1/6/15

Too many things have been going through my head lately, so many that I have not been able to concentrate on any one thought.

For starters, my online writing has gone from making nothing at all in 3 years to earning $150 in a year back to nothing at all, right when I need it the most. I am debating on jumping ship before I sink and forget writing all together... Not that I would actually be jumping, because if I can't cover the cost of my internet (which my husband talked the provider to give us five more days of service after they shut me down this morning) I won't be able to write. Quite frankly, I don't see myself making $80 a month, when I can't even refer people to sites that do pay for services rendered.

Internet is the least of my problems right now. I won't have internet if I don't have a place to live... I haven't received anything yet, but I am expecting an eviction notice soon. No car, no job, no rent...

It's hard enough to start homeschooling when all my kids have ever known is the school setting, that it makes it all the harder to do with " Negative Nancy" constantly in the background saying that we are not doing enough. Topped with the fact that if they are in school, they get two free meals... No, I'm not giving up yet, but if things get any worse I may not have a choice.

There are many other thoughts as well, but these are the most pressing ones. Hopefully after a good nights rest, I'll be able to think more clearly.

I hadn't realized you and your family were struggling financially. I'm so sorry to hear that! Wishing you much more success with your writing, and praying that an answer will come your way soon.

Finances are one subject that I tend to avoid, I am honestly surprised that I posted this but I needed to get it off my head. Thank you Kyla for your thoughts, prayers and for reminding me that there are still good people left in this world ♥

You will be in my prayers. Do you have any family that might be willing to help you get back on your feet?

Thank you for your prayers BarbRad.
Mom (mother-n-law) is not able to help or she would, My biological mother is useless and any other family I may have, are mere Facebook connections with occasional chat.

It's such a shame when God's plan for families to help each other through the hard times breaks down because of human frailties

I don't know what the 'schooling' situation is where you live ! If at all possible you need to get your children back into the school system,then stop worrying about money online! You need money today not in months from now,if there is any chance do try to get a small job near home .. Sorry .Hope things improve for you all..
