Wow, so much to reply to.
Already checking the used stores and what not. Actually, Habitat has one that they run to make money to support the program, so I am going to check with them. Kinda makes sense for me to support them, you know? Really don't want to go the finance route if I don't have to, but that is a good idea if necessary, thanks for the idea. Cant remember if that apartment my friend has has a stove and fridge or not. I fit does, he would probably be willing to let us use it for a bit I think.
Tracy, thanks for the motivating words. I have no doubt this will be better for my family in the end. But yeah, the stress is really getting to me. The fact that this happened to us with no fault of our own really gets to me, and the financial burden 2 months before Christmas really gets me down too.
Mos, you haven't met my kids.
Even the Humane Society wouldn't take them.
Actually, we have always wanted a family pet, and will be getting one once we get into our house, but if we get get one now that would be great.
