So I have a sort of dilemma. I went dress shopping back in February and found a dress that I LOVED the at the first store I went to. We ended up ordering the dress, and were told that it would be in by June. At the time, we only put about half of the amount down as my mom couldn't afford to do the full amount all at once.
Since then, she has quit her job (and has not been super adamant about finding a new one as she hates her career), and recently had to go to the hospital. On top of that, because I am in school, she has been helping me pay for my on-campus housing.
That being said, I'm not sure if she ever finished paying for the dress, and I don't have the money to pay the rest of the amount and also pay for other bills. I don't know if I should ask her about it as she's had to spend a lot of money recently and I know it stresses her out. I've been planning on calling the shop, but I don't want to ask for the amount and then not put anything down.
What should I do?
