I wish our financial problems were temporary. Unless Jonathan or I find a way to earn more money, our financial predicament will remain the same. I’ve been working on building a small photography business in addition to my full time job. I’m also working on marketing for Jonathan’s business.
In some ways, it feels like a catch-22. I could probably earn more working on my photography business than I will from working on Jonathan’s marketing. However, my time and physical abilities are limited due to arthritis and fibromyalgia pain. At least I have a stop gap financial plan in place until I figure something out. Maybe I’ll try starting an Etsy store although I’m not sure that photography does very well on Etsy…
For the record, I don’t use credit cards often. I had to buy working appliances for the kitchen and fix some things with the house right after we moved and for that I planned to use a no interest transfer on my credit card. So, that’s working as expected…getting paid off as expected.
All of this could be so much worse. It was worse when my ex-husband left. It was worse when I was growing up. I just hope it’s not affecting Luke and Oliver.
