This is not the turn I was hoping to take in my life, but it’s become apparent that I’m going to become a single parent for the second time. Ugh.
For a personal reason, a major reason that I won’t be sharing on this blog (trust me, it’s a reason that I’m sure if I shared it, you’d understand) I am going to move my three kids and I into a 2br duplex. I have picked up an extra out-of-the-home steady job at a newspaper office, and am introducing my younger kids to childcare. There are a lot of changes coming for them in the next few months. There will be a lot of tears, too, I’m sure.
Single parents, moms or dads, have some serious skills. They are the ones doing all the childcare and house care, while bringing home the bacon and keeping a roof over the family’s head. It’s pretty amazing, actually, when you look at single parents and what all they have to do. No judgement here, just mad respect for you all that do it all! I’m checking into expanding my side hustle opportunities, too.
I currently do not have internet access, again, so blogging for Modern Thrifty Mom will be on the back burner for a while. However, I’m going to have to be as Thrifty as ever, so I’ll be sure to have lots to share when I get back.
