feeling the recession

i'm just tired. we don't have any money. the only presents i have bought are the obligatory extended family gifts that names were exchanged for. i haven't sold any of my products online. i know i'll have to get a job. what bothers me about that is where my son will go while i work. there's no point in even thinking about daycare (ew.) because of the cost. i just don't know who would hire a college dropout. i do not want to take a 'high school' job (ie. fast food, grocery store, retail, etc.). i need a place that can accomodate to the hours i need. like 8 am - 2 pm. and what about school breaks? i cancelled netflix. a whopping $17 a month will not be spent now. right now we're just existing. christmas is coming,but underneath our tree is bare. what can i do?

Lord, give mgk encouragement today; it's not the end of the world. God is always God. God is always in control. God always loves his children. God never fails. God always provides. God has prepared a mansion for YOU. God lined the streets of heaven with GOLD, to be walked on and not hoarded or coveted. Focus on the the eternal and not the material. We celebrate the birth of a KING, let's give HIM his due. Rejoice in the LORD always, and again I say rejoice. IN everything give thanks, for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus concerning you. I love you.

christmas is still christmas even without the gifts...

Avon. I do Avon. Laura does Avon. You make 50% commission on your first 4 campaigns - huge potential there. If you're interested, let me know. I can hook you up. It's $10 to start. No obligation to keep it up or sell a certain amount. It's great.

Praying for you.

I was in your same boat several months ago. I started working nights but that was KILLING me! So I started babysitting. I know it's not a glamorous job but it works and pays! I babysit for a lady who works from home and has two kids. I bring my little one and watch her two little ones 5 days a week for 3 hours! Trying looking on Craigslist or the newspaper! Good luck.
