I just realized. I've been dating my last few blogs with the wrong year. Oops. Guess I need to pay attention to that. lol
Anyhow, today is a rough day. It's -50C/-58F with the windchill out today. My car won't start. So I went for a walk. I dressed for the weather - I actually was sweating by the time I got to where I was going.
I needed the walk. I'm struggling with some excess stress today.
My daughter called yesterday. She asked if she could move in for a bit - go to work and save some $$. I talked to Hubby about it last night - he decided on some ground rules, but that it would be okay.
Different story this morning though.
It's his home. Period. Not ours. His. I know that. I'm not going to force the issue.
That being said, if it's a choice, my kids always come first. Always will. So I'm trying to figure out how else I can help. Doesn't matter she moves here or stays put - rent is about the same. Here she would have work, but trouble finding a place to stay.
I talked to her today. She just got a job there. So her moving here is not an option. Instead, I think I have to help them cover rent/damage deposit for a while until they get on their feet. So I'm trying to figure out how much I can help them with. Them is my daughter and her boyfriend. He's working too, but it's very expensive to live in Calgary.
So I'm doing what I can. I have contacted friends in Calgary to ask if anyone knows of a low cost rental - even just one room - for these two. I'm talking to my daughter to see what I can do to help.
Needless to say, my stress level has gone up. Way up today. The walk helped.
I really need to watch what I eat today. Make sure I still take care of me today, and not just go off the deep end because of this stress.
