I'm going to be grumpy, so bear with me for a few.
My hubby's car died, and we were thinking about getting a new one, but we just don't think it's a wise financial decision. I *was* collecting unemployment for about 2 weeks until the unemployment office decided to stop paying me. I called them up and asked what gives...they said they didn't know if my claim was valid and I'd have to wait 6 to 8 weeks for them to call me to take a statement. Why I couldn't just give one to the lady I was on the phone with, I don't know. And she was exceptionally rude. "There are thousands of people who are unemployed right now, so you'll just have to wait." I mean really, how does she know that without my unemployment check that I can still feed my family and pay my mortgage? For all she knew it might mean that the babies don't get formula or diapers! Nope, no heart. (Thank G-d everyone will still eat, but it will not be a happy place until I get money coming in.)
With no second car, it means my husband has to take public transportation to and from work. Sometimes he's working until 10pm, so I will actually have to go and pick him up on those days. I just can't have him walking to the subway that late in the city. And it takes him longer to get to work in the morning, so he has to leave earlier...sometimes that means he has to get up hours earlier so he can feed the twins, pray and get to work on time. And a lot of the time he's already late for something because the babies don't have the best eating schedule. I'm going to check with him in the morning and see if maybe using a ZipCar might work better than the subway sometimes.
My weight loss is driving me crazy. I do great during the week and then on Thursday, Friday and Saturday I gain back all I've lost in the past week. So then I have to pray like mad that I lose it all again on Sunday and Monday. Seriously I want to scream! I just wish I didn't get so ravenously hungry on the weekends. :-(
