Not one to ask for help. Would rather just make by, and struggle away till things get better. I’m a 35yo married father of 2. We are a happy family full of love. We made it through some tough times together, never letting it get us too far down. Just don’t know how we let it slip this far this time. With rising rents, the Mrs. having intermittent medical problems, and broken vehicles, before we knew it we found ourselves, evicted and down to one car with no other options but to quit my job and move to a rural family farm.
The Mrs. has a good job cleaning warehouses 45 mins away. This is enough to keep rent covered food on the table and the animals fed, with little to spare. A job for me could be found pretty easily if the money to fix even 1 of the vehicles was available. Don’t have a sitter but that’s easily solved with added income.
Don’t know how much it would cost to fix either of the cars. The CRV keys were stolen after the head gasket blew. This was the main child transport for us. I would estimate about $1000 all in to fix it. When it died we swapped to our Jetta. Till it met its demise. Its damage is 100% unknown just won’t go and overheats quickly. The truck is the last vehicle we have. It’s horrible on fuel and not safe to move kids around in. I would take the CRV and Jetta to shop but don’t want to waste a shops time getting them looked at if there isn’t gonna be any money to fix them.
If that was the only problem, I wouldn’t be asking for help. 2 incomes will be amazing to have again and would be the ultimate solution, but we get by enough on 1 to not make it a super emergency.
The Emergency is a broken tooth that needs urgent care. Currently limping by on OTC pain relievers and some antibiotics I had saved back.. Would have gone to the dentist days ago but there is no extra money till taxes come. I don’t believe I could wait that long. Next pay being a week away also seems like eternity, and there might not be enough left over for the extraction which all in is just shy of $200. The Antibiotics run out in 6 days and I could get more pretty easily but not a long term solution.
Those 2 things are top priority for us. Fixing either issue on its own would be a blessing beyond words. If we could be graced with the ultimate in charity to fix even the smaller issues that aren’t worth listing. It would be to get a small reset button. $5,000 – $10,000 for the financially blessed is a rounding error on the account ledger. For us it would change 4 lives. We have never been blessed with excess, just enough to float. I mean we got married by the wifes grandfather in the front yard. Had our daughter 12 days later. Married 6 years and never had a reception or honeymoon. And always spent extra time and money on family activities and the kids.
We still haven’t given up on our dream. 10 Acre farm where the Mrs. runs her animal rescue. And I can have my wood shop with plenty of room to grow with the kids and family.
I don’t expect anyone to give anything to us. I’ve honestly never expected anything in life. Just hoped and worked for it. Always thought “Why bother people with my problems when they have their own.” Just because someone looks well off and happy doesn’t mean they aren’t struggling in their own way. I hope that this finds that one person who feels our troubles are just a bit worse than theirs and has a bit extra and can help.
Any help given will be appreciated beyond words and actions. All we can promise is that we will pay it forward when we get back on our feet and running.
Thank You! for reading. And My your tomorrow be better than yesterday.
