Earlier this year, I lost my job, laid off after 7 years with the company. That was at the end of January. It’s now October and my unemployment is running out. I’m not positive how long the kids and I will have a house at this rate. I am hoping to at least be able to keep my house until my granddaughter graduates in June of 2025.
Raising grandkids definitely has challenges. I never thought I’d be without a job trying to survive. At the same time, the kids want everything their friends have, and the guilt of not being able to provide those things for them eats me alive. Some days I just want to be their grandmother, give them the things their parents can’t or won’t.
