I just need to let a little stress out…
We are trying to get our home refinanced. We have an ARM loan which is going up starting November by almost $400. Our current loan was approved while I was still sorking full time. Now that I stay home we make half what we used to (we share the home with my parents who pay half). The problem with getting refinanced is that we would have to get a co-loan with my dad, who was the homes previous owner. He had to sell due to impending foreclosure (which never actually happened) and now no one wants to let him co-sign as he is considered high risk!
I have been searching for apartments (just in case) and will probably have to send our dogs to the Humane Society if we have to move (we have 3 dogs and no one who could take them). I can’t get a job because we only have one car and ride sharing isn’t an option for us (DH has a long commute, and tried to start a Van Pool. A few guys were interested, and once he got the ball rolling, more than half the guys backed out, so he has to drive and there isn’t a bus run close to me or a place I could walk to for work:doh:)
Another stressor for me is my fertility. We are deciding if we are going to try for another child. We have no health insurance and DH makes just over the amount in order for us to get any state assistance for health care. Because of the house payments, it’s really hard for us to save and pay off old CC debt, car payment as well, and car insurance. SO that means no money for me to get my IUD removed, get a new scrip for bromocriptine (which would probably entail a endocronologist, MRIs and multiple blood draws). I hate my health.
My little sister moved in and has been a constant stress point as well (she is very needy and not very thoughtful about what others need). Since she moved in, our daughters things had to be moved into our already cramped bedroom. The mess and lack of storage sucks. :pout:
If you read all this, thanks.
I really just needed to write some out. Hopefully it will help the knots in my stomach feel better.
