Don't get me started on being broke-got paid today & I don't have a dime that isn't "going" somewhere!
I'm receiving some financial aid and also a stafford loan which will be for living expenses this next semester, I'm sure that you probably will qualify for student loans and I'd definately recommend going that route if you can rather than giving school up for the year, because it you are so motivated right now I know that would be hard to leave! The interest rates are great in the different loans and depending on what you qualify for, you may not have to pay any interest while your in school!
As for childcare, I found in my area that it was much cheaper to take my son to an in-home childcare rather than a daycare center by $50/week, it is outrageous what they charge!! Even though the daycare center has more flexible hours, it just ain't gonna happen. Is there someone you might be able to "trade" babysitting with? You watch theirs and they watch yours to save some money & it also might be fun for the kids to have someone to play with.
I started cleaning family members houses for extra cash, those who work love it and ask me to do the things they won't have the time to do and since I get paid in cash its wonderful! Now if I could only clean my own house...
You will be in my prayers-hang in there!
