My first blog. Ever. Here starts my rambling. Today, I told my 20 yr old daughter she would need to get her own car insurance. That went over like a lead balloon. She's not speaking to me. I'm currently unemployed, not earning anything. My fiancÚ is happy to pay for both of my daughters cell phones,help them with groceries and supplies, occasional gas and we give them generous gifts. My 20 year old chose to move out because she wanted a dog. She makes very good $$$ in tips,and has another job. She is a full time nursing student, scholarship $$ covers most of her tuition. She recommended that I get a job so I can continue to pay her insurance. I was laid off a year ago, my Mom was diagnosed with cancer and I lost her in April. This is the first time in my life that I haven't worked. I was a single mom and had to work a lot during those years. I'm applying for jobs, our job market is tight. I'm going to substitute teach to help with our budget. I'm disappointed in her reaction. She bought a new car and I told her at that time that I wouldn't be paying her car insurance forever, if she can afford the car, she can afford the insurance. Am I wrong???? I feel like I always put my children first, now I feel guilty I can't pay this for her. I am very proud of her accomplishments.
