and again


I feel like this again today. We've spent a couple of hours this morning going through our finances - business and personal. Things are not looking great. I am really, really stressed; and probably because of that, I've had 'morning' sickness with a vengeance for the last couple of days, which isn't helping me any.

We are due to be away on holiday for ten days from Sunday and are thus not going to be able to speak to any of our creditors next week. The holiday is already paid for and we both desperately need some time together, resting.

There is no magic wand for this and no running away from it.

  1. Do the holiday - walk away and come back to it with a fresh mind. What will be will be. But if you spend your entire holiday worrying about it then you might as well not go!

    Hugs to you and yours.

  3. After 35 years of marriage, and three children, I can tell you that there are good times and bad.While things msy seem insurmountable now, you and B will get through it and come out stronger on the other side. Enjoy your holiday. Maybe a few daysaway from it all will give you new perspective.

  4. Go on your holiday and enjoy it. Leave your worries behind if you can and have a good time.

    *hugs*

  6. Very sensible to have gone through the figures now, because you know the situation and can face it together.

    But everyone's right, as you know already - you need the break and the rest and you really must put your worries on hold during your holiday.

    Money is necessary and a real problem when you don't have it - but it's not important. People are important; the four of you most of all. Think about it - if the house burned down but you were all safe, you'd be upset, but you'd most of all be thankful that you were still all together and unhurt, even if you were left with no material possessions.

    Have a restful holiday, and I'd recommend finding something to laugh at - the best and healthiest release of tension (apart from sex of course {sorry, I've a bit of a one track mind}). Have fun and, for ten days, sod the future. xx

  8. This holiday has clearly come at the right time. Enjoy the rest. Enjoy your family. You'll come back rejuvenated and ready for anything. Turn the water off before you go though! Love and Hugs, Flick x

  10. Maybe the holiday will give you time to formulate a plan, a plan which isn't informed by the desperate panic of being constantly right in the middle of a particular situation. Just before Mr. KW quit a particularly nasty (but reasonably lucrative, and hugely desirable in terms of one's CV) job, we went away for a few days, and it was while we were away that he decided to resign, come what may. He was dead right, and hasn't looked back, except to wonder how he stuck it out as long as he did (five months of hell). Distance might give you clarity, and it will certainly give you some space that you both need so much it's almost tangible. Go. Enjoy yourselves. Talk. Spend time together, and work out your next step, as a family. It'll be OK.

    Good and hopeful vibes coming in your direction.
