-I have my own car. Dad found it, fixed it up, and we've got it registered and insured.

-Apartment is going so-so. It's definitely not the best thing, but it's working out which is what matters. I think some of the trouble is down to the fact that I'm exhausted and overwhelmed. We haven't made the final move yet - I signed the lease yesterday. Today we cleaned it and moved some of the boxes in. Tomorrow we're moving more boxes and I'm packing up the last of what's left. Friday is when I pay the last rent on the old place and get the fuck out of dodge.

-It's been an awful two weeks. Plus. I was in a housing panic in mid-April until I found the new place and then I've been pulling extra hours at one of the jobs and one of those weekends was sheer madness. Imagine going to McDonald's at 12 pm and that's what we had for four or five hours at a stretch, complete with nasty and impatient customers and a business that is nowhere near capable of serving that volume of people at a time. And it lasted three days. It sucked.

-Money is elusive. I managed to come up with all the security deposit, but dad is going to give me the money for the last rent. I wouldn't have needed to, but all the car stuff cost me close to $300. I'm still short $200 for June's rent and will need gas money for the car that week and I don't have that, either. (I'm still selling cookies or words for any money you could send my way. A signal boost would be appreciated, too.)

-Dad is being helpful, but also exhausting. I'm one person trying to sort out new car and moving and actually have my first apartment all at the same time; sibling is nowhere near ready to handle any of this so it's all on me. And he's being helpful by finding the car and checking out the basement for the hook up for the water heater and getting a moving van, but he'll also give me these looks like why don't I have the money for everything or why didn't I check the basement. It's making me feel worse.

-Overall I am doing well. Mentally however I'm close to a mental break down. So close. There's just too much going on and too much that had gone on.

-I don't know how single parents manage, but I am in awe. For all intents and purposes I am setting up house as a single parent since my sibling isn't working and can only help me with cleaning and moving boxes. So much awe for single parents.

How's everyone else doing?
