My cousin got eviction papers earlier this week and today I got the call from her for help. No one in her family offered to take them in til they could get an apartment so I felt I had to offer. She has 3 children ranging in age from 10 months to 6 years. I also figured I could take advantage of her being here and clean up the house as the kids need a safe place to play and she will make it happen sooner. I also realized after it will be a lot of stress on me esp since they don't have much money to help out but I am prepared to make the best of it. They will help out with their food as much as possible but since we don't eat much already I think it will help us to eat more regularly. It will also help us to use some of the food we haven't been using but need to. I am getting more prepared for my yard sale and am forcing myself to price some things fairly low just to get rid of them. I also made it to the store today and got some groceries, unfortunately no fresh produce as it was Sam's Club. I am going to try and hit up Walmart in a few days for the smaller items. I also am getting in a good workout trying to make space for my family and having to make multiple trips back and forth to a room. Oddly not feeling a bit stressed now but my finger is really starting to hurt from the thorns yesterday.
