Feeling a little down
The holidays, for the past 3 years have been extremely hard for me. This year is the worst of all. When I was younger, we always have big family gatherings at Christmas time. It was always magical and fun. Now a days, it seems like everyone is too busy for Christmas. Our family has outed us. My kids have NO idea why and think they don’t live them anymore. My heart breaks for them.
Money is extremely tight right now and I feel awful. We have presents (I shop during the year), we have everything we need for a great Christmas dinner, but it’s everything else. Bills are piling up, groceries are minimal, kids need certain things. Just gets to a person sometimes. I feel like I’m failing my kids.
We’re on EI right now and I’ve been looking for work (we don’t live in the city). I’ve has interviews but no call backs. I’m starting to think we’ll never get out of this rutt. I’m trying the best I can to stay positive for my kids and HOPE everything will turn out, because that’s all I have left… HOPE! Anyways. Thx for reading. Just needed to get it off my chest. Merry Christmas everyone! 🙂
