    Re: Talk about your troubles

    mrd, I'm sorry that money is so tight for you right now. I have somewhat the same problem, I have enough to pay my bills, but not much for fun stuff. But I'm not complaining because I still can afford cable.

    I've been looking for a part time job, but all the ones that would fit my schedule seem to in retail. Not that there is anything wrong with retail, but I've never worked a retail job and I'm afraid my feet wouldn't last. I've always had cushy sit-down jobs.

    Quite frankly if this is my life for the rest of my life, I'd still smoke so I could shorten the misery.

    Yeah, cold turkey, can't afford them anymore. I have a pack left, it'll be gone tomorrow.

    Retail isn't that bad for the short term and good shoes are a must. I am looking for something in retail as I need night and weekend hours.

    Re: Talk about your troubles

    My daughter went to her OB/GYN today for a routine pregnancy appointment. They couldn't find a heartbeat for the baby. After doing an internal exam they determined the baby was only about the size of a 9 week fetus and she was 12 weeks along. She has to go in tomorrow for them to remove it. My heart aches so much for her. September is not a good month for my family. We just can't get a break.

    Oh, that is too sad. I am very sorry to hear this. May you and your family be there for each other and you all find peace and healing.

    Wow...not even trying to space them out so the real withdrawal starts on the weekend? You are a tough cookie...just warn your coworkers!

    Unk--that is so sad, so sorry for your daughter and your lost grandchild, and you.

    So sorry, Unklescott. I will keep your daughter and family in my thoughts.

    MRD, I hope the cold turkey method is not too hard on you. In the end, it should help you with money saved and health benefits!
