because I’ve gotten custody of my oldest child’s two sisters, ages 7 and 6. As most of you know, I have a 9- and 6-year-old. The girls came to live with me a week ago Sunday. Everything was going well until I blew up the stove trying to fumigate on Friday.
Yep, I blew the stove top off and the house caught on fire. So now I’m living in a hotel with four little girls as I figure out how to start over. People have been awesome. They’ve offered to donate and have donated many things.
Problem? I have no where to put anything yet. It’s really humbling to know that I might have to stay with a friend (with my four kids and her four kids) until I get the money together to move.
If it only could have happened at tax time. :) Unfortunately it didn’t. Everything is going to be alright.
In the meanwhile, don’t be surprised if I post sporadically as I try to figure out what to do.
See ya soon!
