We paid the rent today. We have a whopping $5 left until next payday. A whole week away. Somehow this has me totally unfazed. It was noticing that both of my boys’ shoes have several holes in them that completely did me in. I can’t even afford to go to thrift store and find some secondhand replacements. 

It’s those little things that suck the most right now. 

Tremendous gratitude to one of my kind readers who donated $20 this week. We were able to buy milk,eggs,bread, and butter… basics until the 9th when we get this month’s SNAP. It felt like a lifesaver.
