When your 10-year old leaves you $1 and change with a note saying it's for rent because she doesn't want to move, and your almost 16-year-old can't wait to turn 16 so he can get a job, not to make money for video games or a car, but to help the family, it makes you do strange things...

Despite our best intentions to move forward joyfully and positively, we find ourselves being dragged down by unending worry. Our children shouldn't have to concern themselves with our bills. We were able to borrow some money and have $200 from that, some of which will need to go for gas and groceries. Rent is $600. It seems like an astronomical sum to me to come up with in less than 2 weeks.

If it helps, you can think of it as a birthday gift to any one of the birthdays coming up this week...
