My frustration is not so much mortgage or childcare or even utilities and other bills like that. I get frustrated by my CC bills because I sometimes feel like I am getting nowhere. When I want to scream I get in my car, take a drive, play my angry music (such as Collective Soul) because it soothes me. I also talk to b/f because he encourages me and tells me he's proud of me. It's nice to have the pat on the back from someone who supports me.

I also do stuff with my daughter and b/f like the zoo, the mall (the one in downtown DC, not the shopping mall) and other free activities.

If I want to splurge I just pay the minimum on CC one month and blow the rest, but this is VERY occasional because otherwise CC would never get paid off.

I also log on TMF because everyone else is, or has been, where I am now. I love the advice and encouragement that I read here. It helps TONS.
