Seriously need to quit slacking

I have a blog in progress about ADHD and ODD and my son. I don't want to post it until I'm all done with it, and I'm 100% satisfied with the end result. I don't want to paint a bad picture, but I don't want people to be misinformed. It takes a lot of work.

In the meantime, I've been slacking on blogging. I'm busy trying to bust my behind to get ready for Christmas. We are on one income, and our bills are falling behind. So, we aren't able to do as much as we want to, when we want to. I've been finding some pretty good deals on the virtual yard sale sites, and most of the stuff is still in great condition. They'll be passed off as Christmas gifts. I'm now looking to list my kids outgrown clothes in hopes of selling them cheap enough that people buy them, yet enough for me to make something off of them. 

Tomorrow, we make the 1.5 hour trip out to the Children's Hospital for Gianna's hematology appointment. She has Hereditary Spherocytosis, so we have to see a specialist every so often. Since she has been doing so well, we go once every 2 months. Unfortunately, because my car is not running properly, we're set back another $100+ because we need to rent a car. I'm hoping she's still doing well, because there is no way I can afford another rental to go back up in a week or 2. And we can't afford to fix my car until income tax season. I'm actually hoping to sell my car (or junk it/trade it in), so that I can get a new car. Not brand new. I'll never be able to afford brand new. But new to me. I need something a little more reliable than my POS Dodge Neon. It's served me well over the years, so I really can't complain too much. It's a 2004, so it's been around quite some time. My dad bought it brand new for me, and I think I've gotten more than enough out of it. Multiple trips from here (NY) to my mothers in Maine before she passed away. 2 to 3 times a year. Also 2 trips to NYC every year. I've put a ton of miles into her. It's just time to find another car that will last me until my kids are older and I don't have to worry about G so much so that I may work and earn more money towards things we need.

Until then, I need to get on it and get these clothes listed. And maybe soon I'll actually get to work on the ADHD/ODD post. Wish us luck for tomorrow!
