When it rains, it pours!

For a while now, I have felt very secure in my financial area of life. I mean, I have bills, I pay them, it all works out. This has not always been the case...I suck at managing my finances! Big time! I've gotten in so much trouble over the past few years, living paycheck to paycheck, etc.

Today was a huge wake up call! A bill I had forgotten about went to collections and they ended up suing me. FML!! I had no idea what to do! I just paid off all my court costs for my DUI, and I am not ready to pay my lawyer another $1,000+ 

So, I called them, actually they were really nice and we worked it all out. I just have to pay a little bit more and they'll drop the lawsuit. WHEW!!

Relief...until I looked at the rest of my bills...and then at my bank account...Not working out to well. I have enough to pay that bill, but that will leave me with nothing until the end of the month. Even then, my next paycheck is only going to be like $40, because they only scheduled me 2 shifts this pay period.

I'm in the process of looking for another job. I need to find something that I can switch to full time come December when I'm finished with school.

I DO NOT need to be stressed out at this point in my life. Pregnancy is hard enough without adding extra stress.

So frustrating...I hate being an adult.

Hi, Bonjour,

What do I want to know?
Mmh, if you're single?

You look very cute, I like your smile and it seems, while glancing through your blog, that you're alone with your baby coming.

Meaby I'm wrong...

Awww, hun. Good luck with the job hunt. I know how crazy that can be right now! And remember to breathe, because apparently that's important for pregnant ladies....and everyone else I guess. :)

I know exactly how you feel! It will all get better, just remember that you're headed in the right direction!

Don't be stressing that baby out! All It needs to worry about is butterfingers and oceanic womb sounds!!
