This week the bills started rolling in.  Thank goodness Steph setup that GoFundMe account or not sure how we would pay for it. Its rough when you count on two incomes to pay for everything and you lose that second income.  We didn't/don't have the three months of income saved like everyone recommends you do.  We still have bills that we were able to pay but we lived paycheck to paycheck with a little bit of wiggle room for going out or purchasing something like medicine cabinets for the house.

So a solution is to sell whatever I can, reduce bills, start looking for coupons since food is roughly $400+ a month. Stop buying organic foods and dairy while we are broke. I am giving away my Can-Am Side by Side for what I owe so I can remove that payment.  We'll see what else I can come up with... right now we are living partially on credit cards to make ends meet but we'll survive one way or another.

Thank you to all that are helping support us and our fight.
