A new day

Please pardon the pity parties I've been having. I'm in a funk and I'll get over it. Despite my blogs that act as if my world is going to come to an end, I know I'll manage and I'm working on ways to get out of this hole.
1. I want to keep my job. I'm afraid to go back into teaching. So, I'm going to work on getting new yearbook accounts though I hate sales as well. I'm going to incorporate the help of my current advisers to help me get in the door and we'll see what happens.
2. Even though I'm afraid to go back into teaching, I'm keeping the possibility open as it would give me more money and health insurance covering two of my biggest worries.
3. I'm going to work on the house during spring break and see if my dad will look into refinancing it and then incorporating a loan to pay off my credit cards into the house payment. (not a big possibility given that I've been late on his house payment now for two months)
4. I'm going to take Summer's advice and try to put some stuff on ebay.
5. I'm going to continue to apply for and look for a part time job in the evenings.
6. I'm going to quit trying to assume the worst. Yes, child support is behind and it's likely he doesn't have a job at the moment, but it's not to say he's not going to find something and I know that if/when he does get a job, he'll have to make up the child support and you never know when you'll get that extra check.
7. My tax refund should be here at any time and I can get caught up and start penny pinching a bit.
8. Spring is coming fast and my utility bills will go down for a bit and I can perhaps stay a little ahead of the game.
9. Going to deal with the bad days and move on.

Chin up, Annabel. The bad stuff tends to gang up on us, all at once in overwhelming fashion. Just breathe, keep remembering all the positives you've just listed, and try to find something to add to it everyday, no matter how small or trivial it seems. Things *will* get better. One step at a time.
