October 18th of this year, I fell while carrying my son off the bus. Long story short, I pulled the tendon in my leg so badly it ripped a piece of bone off in my foot. I have been out of work since. Luckily, my landlord does not want us to leave and is letting us pay bit by bit. Also my job awaits my return. Thank God.
Unfortunately, the electric company, car loan, insurance company, student loan, phone company, etc etc are not so forgiving. Also, my 5 year old likes to eat! (So do I honestly...)
My son asked me today when we were going to get our Christmas tree. If we could decorate outside like our neighbors. He asked for this remote control robot thing for Christmas and I said no, that it was a lot of money. He told me Santa would bring it because he has been such a good boy.
That was it. Time to put the pride aside and start begging. I looked at him and thought I would do anything for him.
My family and boyfriend have been holding us down thusfar but they have done all they can. Social Services has done a little. I may get disability - in a few months...
So here I am, doing whatever it takes to give my son Christmas in his home.
