Rosemary Herbal Hand Scrub: Recipe

Herbal Exfoliating Hand Scrub

Fresh Rosemary Sprigs

Directions:

  • Mix chopped rosemary with the oils; add sugar to make a paste.

  • Good for hand care but can also be used on elbows, heels of feet and any place that suffers from dry skin. Great for all over body care at bath time too.

Hello,

I am a single mother of three. I am employed full time working a minimum of 45 hrs a week,I am also in college, trying to complete my Bachelors degree.

I have a great career doing what I love to do, however, financially it is extremely hard to support myself and 3 children on my own.

I am having a hard time just staying afloat financially. I recieve NO child support or any other type of financial assitance on behalf of my children. I do not live beyond my means. I dont spend money on anything beyond bills.

I seriously need some assistance. My youngest daughter needs tutoring,which i cannot afford. I have done everything i can to help her, but she really needs additional help beyond what the public school can give her.

All of my children need summer clothes and I cannot even afford to go to a thrift store to  purchase anything.I work in an corporate environment and cannot afford business attire myself, I seriously have about a week and a half's worth of colthes that i have to mix and match. They have been washed so much that my black pants are so faded.

I have a vehicle that is paid for and I have major repairs that must be made.Engine coils need to be replaced,as well as the fuel tank(which sometimes fumigates gas).

Once this vehicle is completely non operable,  I will be forced to resign.

My day begins at 6 am, I have to drop off all 3 my children in different places, and then I am off to work by 9. I work until 6 or 7 pm and then it is off to pick my children up and return home, to prepare for the next day. If I had the child care or time to work a part time job i would,  there just is not enough hours in the day. And i do not have any family that is capable of helping me.

I am so overwhelmed, when it rains it pours!!!

Can someone please tell me what i can do? I do not want to give up my career, and I definetly dont want to end up  on welfare. 

Thanks for any direction that you can give!

 in response to mijkeg1964...   Hello,  Yes your day will come.  View your day from a different perspective.  You are telling yourself that things are hard.  Try to tell yourself how easily things are coming to you.  This may sound crazy but we keep telling ourselves how hard things may be.  Therefore we are drawing in the harder in our lives.  Sometimes a week vacation will help also.  When we feel passionate about something it would not feel like work.  One time I have felt that way too.  But I have now been looking at things from a different perspective.  I wish you the best.

Magnolia have you tried doing an on line search for your daughter?  I know it works for some.  Hope you have luck in finding your daughter.

It 's Mother's Day this weekend and in a couple of weeks will be the 6th year of my daughther's car wreck. I miss her so much. She was only 16. It seems like evrything comes at once. I am about to lose my house and I cannot pay my bills. I have 2 other children I have to take care of so it is really hard on me. I don't even have help due to a dead beat dad.

Almost Mother's Day and I'm feeling sad.I miss my kids and my grandson.Cliff can't know how I feel because he doesn't have any kids. So, I don't talk about it to him.I called the social security office hoping they would tell me where my daughter is.I've tried that before and they won't tell me.I know there are people who have bigger problems than me.I just needed to tell some one how I'm feeling today. I'll feel worse Mother's Day.Have a good day everyone.

 in response to kitty93...   comment to Kitty93:---You have more than your kids and husband to talk to now that you have told us your story and there will always be someone here to listen to you and hopefully help you. As far as the anti-depressants go, don't be to quick to deny them as many of them take up to two to three weeks to work. They will make you very fuzzy and a little out of body at first but try to stick with them for a few weeks and see if your symptoms start lifting. This comes from personal experience as I had to take them for severe depression and a panic disorder and I was ready to pitch them out the window after the first day but I hung in there and by the end of the second week slowly but surely my world started to become more and more normal so just give them a fair chance. I wish you all the health and happiness you deserve and don't hesitate to talk about any thing that is bothering you, we will listen and be there for you. Sincerely sheshe030

Hi

I don't know how long or what kind of antidepressant you are taking but call her and tell her. Read the info that came with the stuff. there are cancer support groups and even if you could do it via a phone would be good for you. Do check my blog again for the word cancer to see about getting housecleaning services and other things for you..They aren't your friends if they left after you got sick as you can't get cancer from being near someone..

Love to you and I hope you can get some surgery...
