Quoting K&T:" If I was you, I would give the money to someone I trusted to hold onto until I had made enough to pay ... [snip!] ... starbucks). It will make things tight, but this is an investment that will better the rest of your life, as well as your kids. "
We have done that. We cut everything out that isn't needed. We buy the things that we cannot live with out and scrape and scrape but it always goes to bills or something that the kids need.
It is an investment that will better our lives. As soon as I can get it and pass it I am going to get into school. Get a better job where I am not going into shady places and having to deal with shady people. Like tonight I got cornered in the parking lot by an older guy that kept asking me to go somewhere with him even after I told him that I was married. And night before last I delivered a pizza to this apartment that the guy basically tried to push me into his apartment. I hate my job. I am scared most of the time. I deal with drunks all the time and everyone that I work with has been robbed at least once. One of them was right outside of our work place when they were robbed. I keep thinking every time I go to work that I am going to be robbed or killed or worse.
