Money from Home

So far I have joined 2 legitimate sights where I have earned a total of $45 in gift cards between the two of them. I have now joined 2 more sights but I just did this in the past 24 hours so I've still got a waiting period to make sure that they are legit and what the payout is. I'm thinking I'm going to start a spread sheet for each site so I can keep up with my rewards and the amount of time it takes for each of them. If the other two pan out I will let you know what those two are. It really doesn't take up that much time at all. So if it takes me weeks or months to get a $25 gift card then it's worth it to me. Because I probably spend no more than ten minutes a day on it and these are free except for my time.

For the record this is my blog and if you can't stand complaining WARNING: Stop Reading This Now!!!

There, I gave you plenty of warning because that is exactly what I want to do. I could probably write a mile long list if I really wanted to but we will just see how the flow goes....

So, this is probably the most stressful and painful season I have ever been in. Let's start with the physcial problems. I am pregnant with my third child. I have a one year old and a two year old. Right before I found out I was pregnant I started getting this horrible cramp in the left side of my butt. It was so bad I was crying trying to get in our truck for a date night. It happened a couple of times throughout a couple of weeks and then it got so bad that it got to where by the end of every single evening I was in horrible pain and couldn't walk. This results in not being able to do anything. And it is by no means a break and just getting to sit around. The pain is constant and I would much rather be cleaning a house top to bottom and changing a hundred diapers. I literally am not able to do anything when it gets that bad. So it started happening every night and I finally went to the chiropractor. It took awhile to actually go because we just frankly didn't have the money but I couldn't go on not being able to function. I am now 22 weeks pregnant and I have been going every week since I started going. That's $20 a week. Which we absolutely can't really afford but at the same time it's like what do we do? I can't just not be able to function every day. It had gotten better where it wasn't every day but here lately it seems to be getting worse. And the doctor has told me that until I have this baby it's more than likely not going to get better any time soon because the bigger I get the more pressure it puts on my nerve. So frustrating...
I am honestly beginning to worry what's going to happen when I get a little further into my pregnancy. I am scared that it's going to get worse and I honestly don't know what I would do in that situation. It starts hurting when I've done the least bit of housework and sometimes I just wake up and it's already hurting. And there's no warning either. Once my back starts hurting I know that by the end of day I'm going to be limping along. I have been praying over this situation constantly and I don't plan on stopping. I NEED this to go away. I can't function as a wife, a mother, or even a human when I start hurting.

Now I've realized that one complaint is already a good read so I just may split my complaining up into different entries. I have a feeling I will be having this stress load for quite awhile so I will definitely need to vent. So here it is. Entry number 1 on complaining. And again, my blog, my life. And this is definitely a HUGE part of my life right now. So sorry if you are reading this and having to listen to me complain. There's a lot more where this came from :)
