Fumbling Along

i am a single mom with 2 teenage kids and a job i hate and live in a tiny basement suite where i don't even have a bedroom. everything i do is for my kids who don't appreciate anything. i wake up go to my stupid job, come home battle with the kids, make dinner and go to bed to do it all over again. where's the joy in it all.  feel bored all the time, trying to chase my anxiety away, wondering if this is all there is to life...

Oh sweety i can completely empathize with you ... except my kids are 5 and three .... and i dont work .. but i feel like im in a rut 99% of the time .. we all just need a spa day ..

Sounds like my life too! I have just one teenager and am also a single mom. I work, come home, cook go to bed and do it all over again just like you said. I would like to date but the older you get the harder it seems to meet new people. Money is also always a factor. People say oh you need to start going out. Easier said than done when your always broke. I can really sympathize with you.
