I'm so screwed

Ok, so my second reasonable option for childcare has most likely kicked the bucket. Why is this so hard? There are plenty of daycares out there - not one I feel I can afford for both kids to go to. Besides the fact that I HATE the idea of them being in a daycare all day long. Leaving them with family made me feel so much better... and now... not happening.
I really don't know what to do. The whole reason for getting a full time job was to afford classes, and now if I work full time, practically my whole paycheck will go to daycare. No money for classes, AND not seeing my kids all day? And the point of this is.....???
I feel like I shot myself in the foot by leaving UNH now - at least I could have tried to get evening classes and some students and I would have SOMETHING coming in and probably could find care for a few hours a few days a week... but now, no. I don't have that option, because I had to be all gung-ho about going back to school. Such crap. How does anyone do this? I can't be the only one who is in this situation, so...what's the answer??? I sure don't have one. I'm up a creek without a paddle - or a boat.


  1. I hear you Kelly. Life has been on hold here. I can't possibly afford to go back to work, especially with 3 kids. Not until the 2 older boys are in school at least full-time. Ever consider taking on a child or 2 to watch? This way you can be home with your boys and make some $$$ for school.

  2. I know how you feel babe - it does suck but you will figure it out - I have faith in you - we all find our own way through this crap
    I love you

    P.S. I am soooo glad Philip is a teenager - the worst thing I have to worry about is him catching the house on fire - lol - see what you have to look forward to???
