    My oldest is spending the weekend with her grandparents and the youngest will be spending the weekend with her dad starting tonight.

    That leaves me 48 hours to be by myself.

    My goal is 30 hours of work or at least $200 just for this weekend.

    I think I can fit in a nice hot bubble bath and sleep in a bed all by myself.

    I can do it!

    When I moved 6 weeks ago the electric company transferred my billing to my new address. At my address Consumers does electric and gas so of course my bill is going to be higher.

    Got my bill today, grand total $600.


    I need to get payment arrangements made so I don't get a shut off. I figure it's going to take a few months to get that paid off.

    As far as I knew my food benefits was canceled the end of last month. I've been buying groceries but it's not stretching. I've been so hungry this month making sure my kids eat. I lost 7 pounds this month and my kids complained a little about not enough to eat.

    I turn in my food application today and the caseworker said I just needed to change my address and I was good. I had $460 in food benefits sitting on my card all month!

    I struggled for food money the last 3 weeks. ...
