Stress, Stress, and More Stress

Stress has overcome every aspect of my life. I don't think I've ever been so overwhelmed. Well, I've never been so overwhelmed and not known how to handle it. That's the biggest difference.
Finances. Ugh. I hate money. I hate debt, and bills, and not having money. We were expected to get a great tax refund this year, but we received a notice that all of it was applied towards a debt that we didn't even know we had. As of now, I know it is a student loan in the Mr's name, but we don't know what type, from when, what company, or any details.
We were planning on using all of our refund to pay off a ton of medical bills and other bills we have piling up, with the exception of keeping a small amount to buy Mason some new clothes.
So much for that.
Yeah it paid some debt. But when it's a debt you didn't even know existed, it's like you're still at square one. Although I don't normally discuss mine and the Mr's relationship on here, I will say that we have been neglecting it for the most part. With a baby, and financial issues, and his job, our marriage has been ignored by the both of us. It's not the best place to be, and we are working through it.
We may take a social hiatus of some sorts for the next couple of weeks so that we can focus on us again. I'm hoping we can get out of the house a few times and spend some time alone without Mason. We need that.
With that, I probably won't be blogging much for a little bit. I have been slacking off anyways, but my main focus is my family. The Mr. and I are having a date night. It's past due and we need it.
