Mothers Day, Turning 60 ans Other Issues

Saturday, May 13, 2017

Well tomorrow is Mothers Day and I wish everyone who is a mom Happy Mothers Day. It is also my birthday when I will turn 60. It should be a happy day but it is not. We still have not found another dog and it is over 6 weeks since Leah died. I am still kind of depressed and my daughter is more so. Leah was her buddy ans she dearly misses her. We want a medium sized dog not a large one and we do not want a dog that needs to be taken to the groomers either. We will not be able to afford it because once more our food stamps are cut down again. We will only be getting half as much as what we got before. My daughter is very upset by it; she cannot work like they want her to due to her various medical problems and she cannot sit fro long hours by the computer looking for work either. Now she has other circulation problems with having cold hands and feet a lot and she has to see a cardiologist now.

Since I told them that i would get money from Social Security starting next month it has dropped. But I will not get the full amount until i am 65; i am getting about two thirds of it. Most of that will be taken out for bills each month. Not to mention the exorbitant water bill that comes up every 3 months. Also I have 2 credit card bills yet to pay besides the light bill and phone and Internet. I do not know if there will be any money left over for groceries.

If all that is not bad enough I had to buy a lawn mower from Walmart because ours went to pot last year. I ordered it online and it will come by Thursday they said but it might be here a day or two earlier. that was over 140 dollars! I also have to add in gas money from this month through September. I think we will be living on beans and canned food after the last of the excess food money runs out. Just no way to win around here.

    So sorry that what should be a happy time is so stressful for you. Those legislators should try to live like that for awhile and they might change their tune about "entitlements". Hugs, prayers. And sympathy. The only positive I can come up with is that you have your daughter. It may be hard, but she is still a gift.
