Someone is actually listening to me???

Now, if you know me you know I give out useless, unsolicited advice daily...ok, hourly... but according to crazy texas mommy I am a smart woman... now I don't really know about that. But I do know when the cards are stacked against you and you feel like there is no hope instead of giving up you need to make a plan. It is much easier to just give up than to deal with things but you it won't get you anywhere.
With times like these we are struggling. If we have a job we are in fear of losing that job. There is never enough money to go around either... The best advice I have is make a plan. Write down your plan, then cross off things so that you know have accomplished something. Whether it be you finally painted a bedroom that needed painting, or you paid off a bill that wanted to pay off, or you just have things in general to deal with. You will feel much better about getting something small accomplished than looking at the big picture thinking you have been spinning your wheels for nothing.
Good luck Crazy TX Mommy in getting your credit cleaned up. I was there a long time ago with someones bad debts that I married into. It is a struggle but I know that you can do it. You want that house, the seller wants to sell it and hopefully will be patient while you get your letters together explaining everything. Hopefully the mortgage thing will still go through. Keep us posted (I know you will..) and keep your chin up girl. You have 2 beautiful children that can't afford for you to give up and fall apart! Like I said, we are moms and we can make anything happen if we just hang in there and don't give up.
