Searching for change to make it until payday

Well, this afternoon I found myself searching frantically for change. I managed to find $1.40, which is better than nothing. The problem? It was for gas which is $2.69 a gallon at the nearest gas station. That mean that since the low fuel light is on we’ll be cutting it awfully close. Hubby gets paid tomorrow which is good they could make them wait until after the holiday. Of course at the moment I’m just hoping that he’ll make it home and back to get his check without running out of gas.

Out of this check he has to make a deposit in the overdrawn bank account and pay at least $55 worth of child support. I’ll be keeping closer track of it this time, he has to pay arrears too as soon as we can in order to catch it up and have it reevaluated. The fact that it should have been done a long time ago is one I’ll leave alone. When you make an average of $100 a week $55 is a bit high for child support.

I haven’t gotten much work done lately. I’ve blogged a lot but other than that I’ve not done much else. I wrote a couple reviews this week that are pending. I’ve got a few left to finish.

Thank heavens it’s Friday

Well, it’s Friday and I’m incredibly thankful! At least that the week is ending and we don’t have to worry with transportation issues until Monday. This morning hubby will be home in time to transfer the car seat to his car so that Theresa and I can take it to therapy this morning, we’ll be back in plenty of time to stop and get cat food for those two pesky critters. $1 will get a small box to last until Wednesday when he gets paid.

Out of his paycheck we have to get a few things taken care of. The first is a money order for $55 so that his child support is paid for one week. Then I have to add arrears to the $610 so that I keep up with it. I have no idea how much my back brakes are going to be I just know I can’t get them for a while. This means that Monday’s my husband has to drop us off at therapy and pick up up. He may have to start going with us the rest of the week except for Fridays.

I was enjoying reading Wife No. 19 at my leisure as I worked, now I’ll be reading one or two pages a day and moving on. I’m a hundred or so pages into it and it’s a rather interesting read so far. Well that’s it for today. You can see for yourself if you’d like to read about this woman’s rather interesting life.

Tuesday’s Ramblings’s Tuesday and I’m rambling again. We had a good speech session, I watched and wrote a bit because she was doing so well. Tomorrow she goes to preschool for half a day. She’ll be home just in time to eat a little bit of lunch and to go to therapy. I realized today that I have $6 in cash for gas and $6 in my bank account. It’s only the 16th and we have 7 more days of therapy to get to.

I bought pull-ups last night and that small pack has to last as long as possible. My husband for the moment gets paid next week, out of that he has to pay at least one week of his child support that is behind to stay out of jail and put gas in his car to get to work the next week. We a couple things here but some of them will just have to wait.

My two rescued cats are almost out of food once again. They are going threw twice as much since they’re outside. The neighbors cats seem to be coming to eat. I think I have to figure out how to get the food concealed so that just my two can find it. I want a new home or at least one the roof doesn’t leak on and that’s on a foundation because of the storms we have here. I can’t stand tornado watches or warnings. I don’t care to act out the scene from “The Wizard of Oz” where the house flies through the air.

I wanted a house that was paid for when it was built, I have a feeling to do that I’ll have to downsize a great deal. At the moment we’d be in a three room shack to make it a reality. I need new furniture anyway, although I’m not ready to be limited to a couch, kitchen and closet size bathroom.

I was looking through some old pictures and I miss the days that I cared enough to put my makeup on, do my hair and could afford to buy nails just to take the picture. One day maybe I’ll do my make up again, but before I invest in anymore I need to get new glasses along with a new eye exam. That may have to wait until the rear brakes on my truck and the $1,000 plus dollars worth of debt that we ended up in have caused. I know my divorce has to wait I’m making sure that he takes care of the mess he caused if I have to put up with him another year. He just doesn’t know the divorce is off, only postponed.
