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!
