There is a policy in our school district stating if a child's family is homeless we are required to drive up to 50 miles to pick the child up for school. And drive them back to where they are staying. The need for this policy makes me realize we are doing better than some. We have made some really poor financial decisions as of late and are paying the consequences now.
I pray we make the deadline of Friday, but things just keep piling up. Bill was supposed to work 8 hrs overtime yesterday and 5 today but they lost power. He got in 7 if the anticipated 13. If you pray, please pray for us. For us to make the deadline, for us to become financially smarter, for us to just do the right thing. Positive thoughts and vibes welcomed too!
The policy of the homeless transport may become a reality for us, but knowing it's there, for situations like this eases my mind a little, HOWEVER, us bus drivers dislike driving that far :-)

I have found myself being a mean spirited girl, no thought to feelings to others, just nastiness from me. Why do I treat others horribly? They don't deserve it, I know better. how can I teach my children how to treat people when I can't be nice myself. I have some work, on myself, that I need to do. I think I need to start running again, at least then I had an outlet. I'm praying life gets a bit easier for us, lots of changes has happened recently, some still to come. I'm sorry to those I've hurt. I'm not myself.
