Not going so well

OK the new work system won’t work for me and the amount of money that I need isn’t the amount that I’m going to be making. At least it’s not looking like it is at this point and time. I have no idea what to do since this stress is making me sick. That’s just what I need a trip to the doctor at $100 upfront because I don’t have insurance at the moment. Funny thing is that if I could afford the insurance I wouldn’t need it because that’d mean that I could afford the visit to the doctor’s office. DUH!

OK let’s see, Theresa has been out of fish oil for a couple of months because I keep forgetting to order it. I have a half of a tank of gas to get her to two appointments and the holiday visits until the next payday. Not looking good. The only bright spot is that the cable and Internet special aren’t up yet so I don’t have to disappoint the kid just yet by getting rid of the shows that teach her on demand. 

I figure that if I work seven days a week every available hour for a few months I should have it all figured out. OK the kid is destroying her packaging for one of her gifts which means that she won’t have anything to put her stuff in before long. I’m still working on getting rid of the things we don’t need and putting the things we can use where they can be found. Not buying things we don’t actually need should save some money. OK I’ve got work to do so I’ll be going for now.

Money Left??

OK I managed to take a look at the budget today. I figured the bills and only the bills to be $472; I didn’t include hubbies child support because that would be his expense alone. The only one that he actually has since nothing is in his name except the court order that was put into the divorce for child support. That figure was below my reliable monthly income but there is another problem.

The figure I got didn’t include putting gasoline in the car, cutting the grass or buying supplements. It didn’t include household necessities either. That’s not the only problem with the budget but it is a big problem. I’d love to reopen my savings account that was depleted over the summer months.

I wrote out the bills I had in front of me and paid one online. I paid the Internet bill online at no extra charge. I wrote a check for my auto insurance and light bill. My auto insurance was $42.14 this month, last month it was $57.23. If I’d been able to pay it off for the full six months it’d have been at least $100 less than I’ll end up paying by paying it each month but I just couldn’t come up with the full $250 I think it was this time.

OK I’m going back to figure out if I will ever have money left again.
