Financial Stress

1 answers
I am a worker. The father of my son is unable to work at the time so I am feeling the stress of the impending arrival and not having enough money. I am a waitress so tips can be shoddy and not so reliable. Any reccomendations on what I can do to ease my stress and maybe try and set up a budget?

 i worked 2 jobs, waiting tables at both until i was 7 months pregnant. my husbnad was away until i was 4 months, because he was traveling for work. why is the father unable to work? it is because he can't, or won't? you need to keep a personal record of all your tips, and figure out what you make on average. then you gather all your bills for the month. make your budget accordingly.
