Stressed out beyond belief! Feeling like we are never going to get ahead financially. Actually just making ends meet sometimes seems impossible. Feeling like another Disney trip is NOT going to happen for a very long time! Sorry for the down message, but just looking for some Disney magic to come our way for a change, know what I mean? *sigh*
Aw I'm sorry to hear that your so sad , it's very unfortunate how hard times are now , that's one of the many reasons I love mw , all the Disney happiness I have no idea when my next trip will be anymore but I love living vicariously through my fellow mwers who are there and I hope things start looking up for you soon ((hugs)):) - tracsant  910.6 #2 7:42PM
I know how you feel when my kids was little we had our wdw trip paid for then had to cancel the trip because my hubby got laid off didn't have the money to pay for gas or food it took a year to pay for it my kids where mad had to wait til they grew up - jeri814  102.0 #59 7:48PM
Sending ((((hugs)))) - DizneyGirl  545.5 #9 7:50PM
Sorry to hear that...  just keep a goal in front of you and keep on keeping on.  It may seem hopeless now, but every little bit adds up.  Sending pixie dust that a DW trip is in your near future!!  :) - mrsincredible  765.4 #6 8:10PM
Lots of pixie dust and hugs coming your way! - disneycm  527.0 #10 8:19PM
I understand what you're going through. You may find an obstacle or challenge that seems too difficult to overcome. You have to think about what is best for your family. Don't let the financial difficulties keep you from staying positive. Once you get past one hurdle, the next one becomes easier and eventually you achieve your goal. Hopefully sooner than later, you'll be able to look back on all those challenges and realize you knew all along you had what it took to get you through the tough times. I will say a prayer for you and send you pixie dust. You'll get that Disney trip your family deserves! - JetsamsTwin  379.9 #16 8:49PM
I'm not sure if this will help: Just like seasons, this to shall pass. I will say a prayer for you. Sending Pixiedust your way. xoxo - JessiBelle22  78.4 #69 8:56PM
My Dad always told me to pay myself first. No matter how much or how little, don't give everything you have to creditors or other bills. He said, "Live within your means, not to extremes." All you can do, is what you can do... don't let it get you down if it's not enough. Know you're doing your best, stay focused, and you'll get thru it. I have been there myself. It isn't fun, but it isn't forever! :) - mrsincredible  765.4 #6 9:35PM
We have been in your situation many years ago. I'm sorry you are going through this. Take one day at a time and take that second job if you feel it will help. My husband and I both worked two jobs to make ends meet. I truely believe that anything worth having or doing is worth fighting for. Set an attainable long term goal and smaller short term goals once you acheive one the next one will come easier and you will feel so good. Never stop dreaming, dreams do come true if you believe. Good luck to you✨✨✨ - mmddgp  371.1 #18 10:32PM
You have to feel your hard work is for something. So the small goals are what will keep you going full force for the long term plan. This too will pass. When you work so hard for what you want you will never take it for granted. A part time job is not a bad thing. I am a nurse I work 2 jobs. I help my family in ny and maintain a home in pa. I know it won't be forever so I do it. So I'm just saying hang in there do what is needy for nothing last forever and you control your destiny. - 5disneylovers  769.7 #5 11:16PM
Im sry to hear that..i understand completely. Just try to save in small ways. Change adds up so save them,cut back here and there..try to see maybe about waitressing too as a second job. It's actually a really great way to save money. I hope things turn around for u. Just have faith and keep moving forward! Don't get discouraged. And if u ever need help with anything or need some cheering up,just turn to the fabulous ppl here on MW. You're not alone. Stay focused on the positive=) Will pray for u! - mickeynme  150.9 #50 2:29PM
I hope things turn around for you soon. I can relate. Just keep swimming! Xoxoxo - MomWithAJuiceBoxBuzz  1017.1 #139 8:31PM
Hang in there! We've all been there and this too shall pass. You are not alone, we've all had those times where we're not sure how we are going to pay for groceries much less anything else. Someday soon you will look back and realize you made it through and everything will be better. Praying for things to get better for you very soon! - BagGal  221.4 #31 11:01AM
I hope things are looking better!  I wish I could send a ton of pixie dust and make it okay, but with finances, there's never an easy fix.  Tips: 1. We don't go out to eat, we only eat out when we go on vacations. 2. If we can't pay cash for it, we don't buy it!  3. Groceries: keep it simple, do with out pop/soda and junk food you don't 'need'. - DizneyGirl  545.5 #9 11:08AM
I'm so sorry to hear your going through a tough time right now! things will get better in time! Disney world will always be there waiting for you... - islandgirl58  251.6 #25 12:20PM
