Real life stuff  
Well as some of you may know about me I'm pretty optimistic. I'm a glass half full person. Lately though it's getting frustrating because Christmas is coming up and Home Depot has slowed down so much (were Mr.Lijahlover works) that the last three checks he brought home have had a balance of 0. That's makes it so hard to do anything when it's just my check from my part time job and child support check from my son's dad. I make hardly anything at all and we also need groceries and to pay bills. *Yuck*

It makes it hard to enjoy Christmas when this stuff happens you know. We're hoping for something to change real soon and have someone buy anything from him. I'm still trying to hope for the best. Keep us in your thoughts and prayers. They are at least giving me more hours this week than uaual at work.

I'm glad I was tagged with the eight happy days meme because it keeps me looking on the bright side every day.

What? They work on commission at Home Depot or something? How can you have zero-balance paychecks?
lijahlover: X-Mas iconlijahlover on December 18th, 2008 06:42 am (UTC)
Yes straight commission for sales they only get something if they sell something. Insurance usually takes the rest.

I totally hear you. As glad as i am to be done with my job after next Tuesday, i'm also nervous about going back to school full time.

For me, Christmas used to almost completely revolve around the shopping/giving/getting. A few years ago i just got so tired of the whole thing though, the whole commercial thing just goes too far for me. The day after Thanksgiving madness is bad enough, but when Christmas starts the day after Halloween... come on! I prefer my holiday to be more introspective and peaceful, and less about how much i spent on everybody i've ever met.

Oh gosh, does Mr. Lijahlover work on commission or something?

You are all in my thoughts and prayers, hon. *hugs*
lijahlover: X-Mas iconlijahlover on December 18th, 2008 06:43 am (UTC)
Yes straight commission only so it's bad now!

Gods, times are tough all over....I really hope things look up soon...

and it is hard during the holidays when money's tight - I know how frustrating that is, believe me!

Are there any other places hiring for the holidays near you? Even if it's just for a month or so, at least it'll help...I've had to work a 2nd job a few times, and even though it SUCKED, hey, the bills got paid...it's not so bad, so long as it's temporary...

*hugs*

It is very hard during this time for lots of people. It should be temporary.

Awww...I'm so sorry. I know how you feel. I'm going through exactly the same thing right now. I'm a single mom (who never receives child support!) and going on one income is extremely hard.
It's so hard sometimes to focus on anything positive. =(
But you know something? I am so very grateful that my children are all healthy - some parents don't have that luxury.
You are in my prayers babe. *squishes*
lijahlover: X-Mas iconlijahlover on December 18th, 2008 06:45 am (UTC)
Yes we are all healthy and that's good. *squishes*
