Sometimes, I hate money...

I am so crazy screwed right now. I have spent most of the summer in Missouri taking care of my neice, because my sister-in-law had major surgery where they removed a volleyball and a tennis ball sized tumor from her abdomen and did a hysterectomy. Because of that, she was out of work for the summer, (and doesn't have insurance,) and Leland has been laid off all summer.

School starts in just under two weeks and I am running around crazy to get everything settled and get my financial aid in place to get my student loans, to get us out of the hole we are in and so that I can graduate in December.

Then, today, of all days, I get offered a friend's on-line business that makes in a year about the equivalent of Leland's salary, for only $1500, if I can come up with half of that as a down payment. AAARRRGGGHHH! I am beyond broke for the next two weeks or so, but this is the perfect arrangement, because I can do it with school, it's something I am really good at, and it is a decent, if not great income to keep us over the rough spots. Except, I have no money right now! It's like that old adage that it takes money to make money, and I am so screwed in that regard.

I even called my mother-in-law to see if she could help, but she's been supporting my sister-in-law and neice, and my sister-in-law just finally went back to work last week. Like us, she would do it in a heartbeat, if there was anyway...

So, sometimes, I really hate money - mostly because I don't have any.

I know a LOT of people are in similar situations, but it really hurts when there is a light at the end of the tunnel, but you just can't reach it. *sigh*

That's my self-pitying rant of the day.
