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  1478.4 #2 4:42PM
Thanks Tracy...I am glad to know people understand. I also LOVE to come here for the happiness and friendship. It really gets me through the tough times! - ncjal  288.4 #28 4:50PM
It's hard keeping things going sometimes. Sport you're feeling bad. Hugs! - ally  509.0 #17 2:05PM
Sorry, not sport! - ally  509.0 #17 2:06PM
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  156.9 #57 4:48PM
I understand. I am sure my kids would be disappointed if we had to cancel a trip! Mine are at the age where they understand that money is tight and it might be a while before the next trip. - ncjal  288.4 #28 4:52PM
Sending ((((hugs)))) - DizneyGirl  936.0 #8 4:50PM

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  1190.0 #5 5:10PM
Thanks Maggie...I really appreciate it! - ncjal  288.4 #28 5:28PM
Lots of pixie dust and hugs coming your way! - disneycm  701.6 #11 5:19PM
Thank you...I could use some! - ncjal  288.4 #28 5:28PM
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 #21 5:49PM
thank you very much....I appreciate all the kind words and prayers! - ncjal  288.4 #28 6:20PM
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 #82 5:56PM
*too - JessiBelle22  78.4 #82 5:58PM
thank you...I believe the power of prayer is an amazing thing....I appreciate yours! - ncjal  288.4 #28 6:21PM
Just pray about it. If a second job is in Gods plan, it'll happen. Just take it one day at a time. God would never put more weight on your shoulders that He knows you couldn't handle. It's okay, if you can't pay yourself now ... Have Faith that one day you will be able to. ;) xoxo - JessiBelle22  78.4 #82 6:53PM
thank you so much...your words are so uplifting! - ncjal  288.4 #28 7:01PM
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  1190.0 #5 6:35PM
Thanks Mrs.I I just wish there was enough to pay myself. I can't not pay bills....I am thinking of getting a part time job for a while until things get easier. - ncjal  288.4 #28 6:44PM
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  948.9 #7 7:32PM
Thanks! I like the suggestion of setting short term and long term goals, thank you! - ncjal  288.4 #28 7:36PM
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  1152.5 #6 8:16PM
thank you, I appreciate the encouragement! - ncjal  288.4 #28 1:55PM
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  177.5 #52 11:29AM
Thanks, its good to know I am not alone....and I do LOVE coming here for a good dose of Disney Happiness every day!! - ncjal  288.4 #28 1:56PM
I do too...brings a smile to my face=) glad it helps...just stick to the disney quote "keep moving forward" Hope that helps:-) - mickeynme  177.5 #52 5:25PM
I hope things turn around for you soon. I can relate. Just keep swimming! Xoxoxo - MomWithAJuiceBoxBuzz  1190.7 #145 5:31PM
Thanks MWAJBB! I love that...it may be my new motto!! - ncjal  288.4 #28 6:08PM
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  340.9 #25 8:01AM
Thanks...its a little easier when you realize SO MANY others are in the same boat, or have been there!! - ncjal  288.4 #28 9:10AM
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  936.0 #8 8:08AM
Thank you! I am really starting to crack down on using coupons at the store, and paying cash for things! I HOPE That will help. We rarely eat out, so that really isn't an issue. THANK YOU for your kind words...it really helps! - ncjal  288.4 #28 9:12AM
You are welcome! I wish you the best, and I'm sure another Disney trip is in your future, just be patient! - DizneyGirl  936.0 #8 9:16AM
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  453.0 #18 9:20AM
thanks so much! - ncjal  288.4 #28 8:24PM
