Angel's Days

Just venting

A lot has gone on this year. I lost a good paying, full time job in March; lost my insurance (my former employer sent the COBRA instructions to the WRONG address & I didn't know until it was too late); I failed most of my classes in the Spring semester due to losing that job and being way too stressed out about the situation of having two pets to feed and not knowing if I would have enough money to take care of them. I have had different utilities turned off at different times due to not having enough money. Even though I got Care Credit to help with Jack's vet bills, that will be something else I must pay on in a few months and that's at least $5000. I do have a job but it's only part time, I babysit twice a week for $40 each day, and have tried to pick up odd jobs here and there. I am still looking for a second job (hopefully full time so I could get insurance benefits) and I need to get back on track with school. I know that won't leave me much time to spend with Angel and Tia but it would be better for us in the long run and I'd be able to make sure we would all be okay.

I am tired of people judging me for having two pets on an extremely tight budget. As I mentioned, when Angel and Tia came into my life I had a great job. I wouldn't have taken them on otherwise. Jack was a special case...he needed someone and no one wanted him. I did what I could even though it's going to cost me in the end. I have a friend that's moving down to Texas in a few months and he's going to stay with me a while until he gets settled in. He's going to help me with bills, and I know Angel and Tia will get all the attention they need. I just hate not knowing what will happen in between now and then.
