Sarra, I feel for you having been in your shoes back when my kids were much younger. You are a strong woman.
One thing I urge you to do is stay on top of the situation with the student loans. Call back in the next few days just to confirm what the last person
you spoke with said. I don't want to discourage you, but having dealt with this personally, but I don't want to be shocked if three months from now
you get a bill for the original payment amount because someone on their end didn't do what they were supposed to do.
I advise just calling them back, ask them to confirm what the last person said and double check that there are no more forms you need to fill out. Ask
to make sure that everything has been filled properly.
It is just my personal experience that student loan customer service people are great at making errors and not filling things on time. If you stay on
top of it, it should all go smoothly.
