ToxicTroll losing job, money stress and other updates
Well, after several weeks of staying home because her doctor told her she must, she is finally getting the boot from her job.
This is from her brain injury from a few years ago. She told DH that she is getting a 30k severance, and they are letting her go in November, and she is losing her insurance. The settlement is still in the works, though, so she wont be in the streets by any means, now or in the near future.
Not certain is this is good or bad for us, or even neutral. She is going to have enough money while looking for another job or doing side gig cleaning/caretaking or whatever, so she will not be hounding DH for more money, I dont think.
However, this consitutes a "change in circumstance", enough that she COULD possibly file for a child Support modification, from the current 347 she now is getting. Depends on if she wants to do this or not.
Either way, she has set herself up pretty well, and we are still struggling to pay bills, and get caught up, and fork over her monthly checks.
Just lots of changes going on. We may lose our house on top of everything else (we rent not own currently, and owner wants to sell). The stress of this plus money stress, is keeping me up lately, and waking me up early. Struggling to get out of bed on chilly mornings, to make money at a temp job I hate, so I can help us stay at a negative balance, but keep the lights on and the water flowing and roof over our heads and food in our stomachs.
Added to all this, Munchkin SD12 is asking for a new backpack from us, because the strap on hers is almost broken off. I offered her 2 choices from mine, and she refused...then she borrows my socks because she cant do her own laundry (at almost 13, shes just lazy, she has the ability). Shes used to us buying everything. Now its time to go to ToxicTroll, her mother for things...and she doesnt.
So we need your prayers, and positive vibes, steptalkers. Winter is coming.
