~My Destiny: Poverty~

~So there are a TON of shifts available this week @ Talbots and I have no one to watch E.

~Mom is too "busy" with her husband. This really hurt my feelings as she knows that we are broke. I can't afford to pay a sitter since the pay is crap, so she's really my only option.

~Today they opened it up to any 4 hr block of your choice. Figures it's one of the nights that O has class after work and won't be home 'til 730pm. Otherwise I could have worked 5-9pm and still been home to put E to bed. They don't usually offer a 5-9 shift either, so that would have been perfect.

~I've been really depressed this week watching my savings account trickle down and down. Not being able to work a little just adds to feeling crappy.

Maybe you can baby swap or something, so you won't have to pay a sitter? There's got to be other people who need p/t work but can't because the cost of the sitter nullifies the income.

Well I haven't found anyone to babyswap with yet and I even sent out a note in our subdivision message board to offer babysitting, that didn't generate anything either.

Have you tried Craigslist? I'm a Craigslist lover now, since that is how I found the house swap in Anchorage and sold my car in two days. And Juneau doesn't even have its own Craigslist listing.

I've used Craigslist for many things, but not for swapping baby care...that's kind of frightening really.

Well obviously you'd meet them first and seek if they give you the sketchy vibe!
