I have only gone out in the last week to do mystery shops and do the final paperwork for substitute teaching. Any money spent is being reimbursed other than business cards for subbing. Thank goodness I have a Publix shop today because I need a few groceries. I may have to spend a few dollars out of pocket.

Things are still tight on the money front, but I now have my badge and can sub. It was recommended I get business cards to hand out, so I ordered 100 from Vistaprint. They came to $17.79 including shipping. I used Swagbucks when I ordered, so I will get 8 swagbucks per dollar spent.

I also received an invitation for an interview from Upwork (formerly Odesk) to write ACT and SAT articles. It is an ongoing project. Hopefully that will pan out as well.

Things have not improved on the marriage front even after my talk. As a matter of fact, most days DH isn't out of bed until noon or so. I think I may call his son, but I am not sure. He has his hands full with his own family. I honestly do not know what to do. I consider DH more of a friend than a partner at this point and don't want him to be homeless. He has nowhere to go, but I cannot afford to support him any longer.

I have not kept up with my 15 minutes of organizing per day. I have done it on average two days a week. However, I have been working an awful lot. I have been good about not working after 9pm. I have only done so twice and have not worked past 10pm at all.

    I don't wish to overstep boundaries but isn't ill partner entitled to medical support or social services at some level? Perhaps disability SS, food card... sorry out system is different here. If he's getting out of bed by afternoon can he be assigned specific, detailed housekeeping duties to at the very least 'earn' his bed and board? Post a list on the wall daily? If he continues this downward spiral you will be impacted in an even more negative way. {{{Hugs}}} I hope you'll take action via every venue available whether he qualifies or not. It's that squeaky wheel thing!

    Snafu has made some very good points - he is an adult, not a child. What would happen if you acted that way? Perhaps that could be your next alternative
