Stayed completely on plan yesterday. Kind of stressed now. My husband just finally started a new contract today which will help so much but financially things are not good. I had to pay the hydro bill this morning as it was already overdue and I got the warning notice.
We are behind three mortgage payments. And, he's still working at night. He wakes up at 2 does his delivery job until 6. Then he goes to the next gov't job from 8-4. I feel bad for him but he knows that we have to get back on track financially. He'll be making a lot of money but I'm hoping the contract lasts for the full three months. My mom will take care of the baby during the day which I'm really thankful for. The reason we're in so much debt is because I took unpaid leave after my maternity leave was up and then when my husband got laid off last April I went back to work and he took a part-time But I've never been able to catch up on the arrears payments.
It will be a tough week until I get paid Thursday. My six year old is in a day camp for the full week starting Monday but I didn't sign my ten year old up for anything yet and now I can't. So I'll have the 10 and 2 year old for full days next week.
I have a major exam to study for which I have to write on the 19th so things are crazy now. I'm not going to give into the temptation to go off plan. I'll get through this week. Things will get better.
