Yup... Me Too!

I think this one will take off like wildfire. Money is tight here as well. I am the only worker here, and support a wife, three young daughters, 2 dogs and two cats, 2 moving trucks, one that doesn't move at all, 2 car payments, the mortgage plus all the bills. Work is slow, expenses keep piling, and the house is falling apart faster than I have time to fix it. We have been scaling way back, but it's not nearly enough. I don't know what to do for more money. Something has to give.... and soon!

It's funny, it doesn't matter what you have going on, if you're in bad shape financially, it feels the same for everyone. No matter how great the day is going, there's that little thing in the back of your mind, some worry about the possibility of a miscalculation or oversight. You try to ignore it, but it's still there, making your smiles a little less sincere.<br />

I'd like to just be genuinely cheerful again...

I hear you.....money (or the lack of it) has always been a thorn in my side. I can identify with most of what you said except that we dont have children.
