Every now and then, a month comes along where there just isn't enough money. This month happens to be one of those months. I have been super stressed, worrying about how I am going to pay all my bills. My car's transmission is going out, which means eventually I will need to buy a new car. I pray every night that I can make it to February, that way I can use my tax refund to buy something dependable. The kids also go back to school in two weeks, and I don't have even half of their supplies yet. Thankfully their dad bought them new shoes, so I don't have to worry about that.
All this stress has we wondering if I should try to find a second job. I know there are a lot of people out of work, and finding a job I can work only on the weekends will be hard, but I have to do something. I know I could probably work weekends at the McDonald's I used to work at, but I have been away from fast food for a long time, and I dread going back to it. But, it's not like I can become an Atlanta Private Detective or something like that.
I usually make enough money blogging every month to pay for gas and all the "extra's", but this is a slow payout month, so gas has to come out of my paychecks. I know gas here is cheaper than it is in other parts of the country, but it still costs an arm and a leg to fill my car.
I know September will be better. I just need to make it through August.
