Payday Should Not Be This Depressing


Just got paid but thanks to my "wonderful" ex-husband my paycheck is and has been about 1/2 of what it should be.  The court system is completely screwed up and my ex knows just how to play it to his benefit.  My lawyer needs to step his game up completely and get all of this fixed.  No child support (ok..I've gotten $72 in a month for 2 children and he makes over $100, 000 a year...once again...SERIOUSLY!)  

I spend 2 weeks working my @ss pain....working late cuz of course the boss can't figure out how to finish on time....and I can pay a couple of my bills and may have gas money to get to work....Woohooo! 

My list of items that are needed that I can't get is getting longer and longer....My list of things that will be needed soon is doing the same....and my list of things I want ...well that's gotten real short because the only thing I want is what I'm supposed to be getting. 

Honestly, if it weren't for my boyfriend, my children and I would be homeless, starving and my car would be repossessed. It's ludicrous and of course it's causing stress in our household. 

Funny thing though.....we have these moments....where we still look at each other and recognize how blessed we are.  We know there are others who are unemployed, homeless, hungry with no vehicle.  We have the love between us.  No matter what my ex tries to do.....he can't take that away from us unless we decide to hand it to him....and well...Seriously...the answer to that is a resounding no.  

Take my health....Take my money.............You still can't take me! Must suck to be him   : )
