Budgeting and Stress

Working part-time is both a blessing and a burden worrying you won't get enough hours to pay your bills. The pressure I feel creates the stress I have now yes I do have help from my boyfriend since he lives with me. Yes, the old half and half way of paying bills but we're still newish I guess I would say. Half on rent, He gets the internet bill since he uses it way more than I do, plus his gaming takes up so much internet everything else is half expect my lawyer fees and I'm having troubles letting him help with the daycare bill.

I do know this I am proud of myself for accepting help.

I have it budgeted out to the point that we pay about the same almost 300 each.  Still trying to get my boyfriend to understand how important it is to budget. He's not getting a hold of the complete idea of a budget but that's what happens when you make money.  Everybody will agree to some point though that budgeting is hard.

That's just my opinion though I've made many budgets and always have trouble finding a way to stick with it. I'm not going to lie my boyfriend isn't the only one with the spending problem I have one too. Before I was part-time I was ordering things off Poshmark almost daily shoes, makeup and clothes I was on Sephora and Ulta. I was trying to buy the void in my life I was on Amazon the most now I wasn't just buying things for me but also my son. I would find the best deals I even downloaded Honey. Any online coupon I could find I was using any deal. I was on a budget or at least when I had all my bills paid. Once I had all my bills paid I'm not kidding when I say I went on a spending spree.

Even with the spending on both his side and my side we still manage. I love him he loves me he loves my son. Right now, in this moment is all that matters yes, I'll stress over bills but he will be there to bring me back down to earth.

More Change....It's Good Though

I know I put it on my podcast but need to let my readers know I am enrolling in college, so I'm cutting back in some areas. My blog is my home and the first project that I have been neglecting horribly, and I apologize I use to use it as a safe place from my ex-husband and where my divorce is finally finalized as of September 19th, 2019. I don't really need a safe place anymore, but I still want to strive to help people, and I'm pretty sure I've said this before, but I need to work on myself before I can genuinely help someone else. Starting tomorrow, October 10th, 2019, my boyfriend and I are going to be working out as a couple. I'm excited because well, as cheesy as it sounds, this is a first for me. I'm making new frists with him; we are going to be Pikachu and Ash Ketchum for Halloween; it's another first for me as well. I've been so happy with my life lately; I almost forgot to keep my passion alive. I know that sounds weird, but it happens life

Mom Life

If you're a mom you might just ask yourself this question almost daily "Am I a bad mom" I know I do and I normally talk to my best friend or my boyfriend about it and why I feel that way. I always get told the same thing by both of them "NO you are not a bad mom you are doing what you can" That is one this every mom needs to remember you're no a bad mom if it's your first child no matter how old they are you're still learning. Every day is a new lesson. You're never truly are on your own when it comes to parenting even if it feels like it at times. As being a human you're constantly learning even if you don't realize it. Just because it's not a big lesson sometimes the smaller ones can be more of an impact than the big ones.  My toddler constantly tests my patience he tries to push me to my breaking point. I get mad but I have to take a deep breath. I know he doesn't understand but sometimes I think he knows exactly what he&#

I really don't know what I want this post to be about, I've talked about unplugging what I'm up to I just won't call writers' block. If  I were to do that though I personally feel like I'd be giving up, I've been racking my head on how to finish out this project I've been working on. I want to tell you, but it's a secret, and I can't wait until everything is done. I will tell you this project is suitable for everyone of any type. I know I've announced that I am now an ambassador for 2 companies, but they still have a couple things in common Craft 1816 and Just Strong. In case you haven't heard of these brands, Craft 1816 is a CBD oil company and is THC free Just Strong is a fitness clothing company based out of the UK. As far as I know from the other ambassadors I've met, they are just really into health or have a form of disability themselves. I haven't met someone with Epilepsy yet. Just Strong believes in mental and physic
