More than I expected. I need to eat more vegetables and salad and less of everything else. I love to bake but cannot eat any more baked goods. Need to cut out wine entirely. Even the cheap wine. Just stop.
Fear rolled back into my head this morning, unsure why. The past month or so I’ve had enough money to buy things for a change. Cashed in an insurance policy. Still have a $$$$$ credit card debt. But the kids have shoes and socks, I have firewood on hand, I fixed the aquarium, et cetera. Now I’m heading back to having about enough money to get by on. The big fear is that the rental income will come to an end, leaving me without any income. Not a good scenario. I need a few more years to get Cassidy through school. I want things to remain the same as far as the kids are concerned for a while longer.
