Hello, I’m not the best at talking about myself but here it goes. This is definitely out of my comfort zone. I’m a single mom of two, and I also have my mom with me. The whole Mom thing is a very very long story that would take over 400 words but long story short on my dad left when I was 17 she quit life and ended up picking up her slack and I don’t have the heart to leave her on the street I guess because I have been responsible for her since that day. I raised my siblings and she still lives with me. She’s never worked a day in her life 😑 She has a lot of medical bills and of course having the expense of another human living in my house is definitely rough but again don’t have the heart to just put her on the street even though she is not my responsibility. She’s been more of a child than a parent nevertheless she’s here. I have my two kids at home. No child support. I love them with all my heart and definitely love having them. I like to say that I’m a pretty good mom. I honestly have a decent job. But I am just surviving. I don’t make enough to save. I have been trying to buy a house for a few years now but when I tried a couple years ago for the third time it was right around the time when people were just out bidding and I could not compete I had about 6000 from tax refunds I’d saved for a down payment and I needed more but I couldn’t save more. The next two years I ended up spending what I had for a down payment because my mom needed some medical bills handled she doesn’t get social security or any type of income and it’s just heavy. I know that I have done my best. I’m a hard worker and I don’t get any type of assistance or anything like I said my job is decent but it doesn’t allow me any wiggle room. My kids and I have not had a house that is our own and I’m sorry for that. I’m even open to accepting a job if I could make more than I make note to save. I have my college degree and I have many years of experience and probably could do just about anything. I said I am living in a rental right now my rent is going to be raised just like everybody is dealing with around lease renewal time with inflation and I can’t afford it. I’m already living paycheck to paycheck and I’m just dreading the fact that I may even be stuck not having money for basics but recently I make “too much” for assistance. I’m looking to buy a home around 225-250k Sadly those houses used to be like 190 before all this mess but it is what it is. I would like to put my kids in a decent neighborhood and like I said I can afford to pay mortgage (of at least 1000-1200) and it be less than my rent so I know that I would be able to have a little more comfort in my life. I’m so stressed all the time and I’m so tired. I’m only one person and take everything for myself for my kids and for my mom and this is the only thing I have wanted. So I don’t know how this thing works and I don’t know if anybody would ever read this but If you would like to help I would appreciate it. My kids would be grateful and if I had family or somebody else that I could ask to borrow and figure it out I would but I don’t have that. Thank you so much for taking the time to read this I’m sure this is a bit scattered But if you want to know a little about me and who I am as a person can you can visit my website and also Photographer on the side www.rhisestudio.com. Actually that is probably the other reason I’d like to have my own house so I can actually shoot more. I don’t have any space to do like a little mini studio and that would allow me to make extra money. Thank you so much.
