Good Morning, this is Kitt,
Wow what a great post from Lyn, she is very savy and covered your concerns well.
I was a single parent for a short while and had 3 young children so I know it can be tough. I took a factory job as it paid better however I was trained for office work.
I would agree that looking to the food shevles and community service agency in your area is a good place to start. Cleaning products, shop Walmart and just pick a couple of good muti-purpose products is what I would do. I use cut up old tee-shirts for dust cloths, you don't need the pricey boxed swifer dusters.
Popsicles, jello, graham crackers, Walmart has family value items such as animal crackers that go a long way. Mix them up. Peanut butter is a great stable and you can make cookies from that too.
Churches are good about donating things too, so look at all your options........
IMO at this point I would try to get stablized and work a bit before going any futher with school. You are stressed enough right now.
I had a 2 year degree and it took me far, never did get my bachelors. I went to school after I remarried and had 4 children............so you can go back to school later, your never to old.
Welcome and please keep posting.
