Today it has been six months since I started the blog and Tom & I have turned our life around. Sure we've been stupid a time or two or three along the way but all in all things are much better. However, the last few weeks have been hard and I've been struggling with feeling really down about it all. Summer is always really tough with teacher's kids dropping down to fewer days per week, then I lost a full-time child on top of it. We haven't been able to put any extra towards debt since May and we've been lucky to stay afloat through most of it. Then there's the car repairs. UGH! Josh's car has been in the shop for 2 weeks now and thankfully Tom's car is still holding up so that Josh can drive it and Tom can drive the van. I don't know how much Josh's car is going to end up costing us, but we did tell Josh that he had to pay for at least part of it. We had to use part of the EF a couple of weeks ago to pay for what the insurance wouldn't pay on the tooth Tom had pulled last month. So it stands at $685 right now. If we were paying for all of Josh's car repairs, I think that would about wipe it out and we still have to figure out what's going on with Tom's car. Anyway, I guess my point is all of this has been weighing on me and stressing me and overwhelming me almost to the point of being unable to even think about it. Does that sound weird? I know it is. It sounds like the old Tracy who lived in denial and let things pile up and get way behind. I know that God will take care of us and I know that we have to be smart with what God gives us. So you might say some prayers for us, because I know that Tom is struggling too.
Have a great week everyone!
