Hanging on with God's help

First of all I want to say thank you for all the comments and suggestions about my daughter and her grades. I am really concerned with it. I want my children to live better than I do. And I know that getting good grades is the beginning of it. Good study habits really are a plus.

I picked my car up from the shop today. I didnt get everything fixed but I had the important things finished. I have 300 more dollars to come up with to get it inspected. It sure is better than having to come up with 800 dollars. The only bill that I am late with now is the electric bill. That company is sure being a pain in the butt. I keep giving them money and they will say everything is ok. A week later I am having to pull some more money together. They know they are getting LIHEAP soon so I dont kow why they are pressuring me. I owe 216 dollars now. Most of it isnt even late. They are just very picky. My other utilities are very lenient and understanding.

Today wasnt a bad day all and all. I was very lazy and bought McDonald's for the kids for supper. I didnt feel like the after dinner mess cleanup. I enjoyed eating out even if it was only McDonalds. It doesnt help my diet any though. : (

My son had his birthday yesterday. He is now 4 years old. The years fly by. I remember when he was first born. He was so tiny. I miss those days except for the four hour feedings. lol.. He didnt get much for his birthday. He got a car and a play cell phone from me . My mother sent him some money and bought him some PUTT PUTT computer games. He loves them. If any body is looking for computer games for toddlers, this is a great game. He never gets bored with them and it makes him think and learn computer skills. It is about a car and his quest to help people find things. There is one from the moon , zoo, circus and goes through. They are really good games.

I am hanging in there. I know things will get better for me someday. I hope things are going well for everyone.

Hiya. I know it's tough dealing with some of these places. You give them what you have and it's not enough. Cars are big money sucking things... if I didn't have to get places I would not have one lol. take care

Happy 4th birthday to your little man! I bet he's lovin the computer game.

Every now and then it's nice to go out - even if it's McDonalds. Sometimes the clean up is just more than I'm ready to do when I have other stresses in life.
