Good Tuesday Morning to all.
I am in early as the ladies are coming tonight. We will be celebrating
Carol's birthday which was in March. One thing or another has kept
us from getting together since then. Mostly Carol and her work
schedule and the death of her daughter. She is horse crazy, lol.
She has a "horse" room. I got her a paint by number of a mare
and her foal and a frame for the finished product. Paint by
numbers have come a long way. I am hoping she will enjoy doing
it. She had finally cut back on her hours so she will have more
time. No idea what we are doing for supper.
Yay, Dorothy, for doing your budget....I too am a procrastinator
and it never really pays off does it. I always say I work best
under pressure, but it is all I know since I always wait to the
last minute. I cannot do that any more now that I moved all
my bill do dates to the beginning of the month.
We may have a new owner very soon. Yesterday they showed the
place to a gentleman who looked to be about 30. He seemed very
interested and said he liked the house a lot. Also asked us if
we planned on moving or staying, we said we wanted to stay and
he said that was great. I just hope and pray that if he does
buy that he does not raise out rent. I cannot afford any more.
My schedule to pay off my last, and biggest, credit card has
already been thrown way off.
Did I tell you that my SS Disability check was short $210 this
month. After calling all around I found out that the state was
no longer paying my Medicare premium and they had to take 2
months out of my check. When you live on a very limited income
$200 is quite a wallop. So now my check will be about $105 less
each month. I called the state about this and I should have gotten
a renewal notice back in April to resubmit info for them to cover my
premium, I never got that and got the notice from SS that it would
be coming out of my check again and that they would be taking 2
months at once 2 weeks after it happened and after I called. So
2 government agencies dropped the ball and I had to pay for it. I
have gotten the paperwork and filed it again so keep fingers crossed.
So with my tight budget and having had Jordan's graduation gift to deal
with I was only able to pay a little over the minimum on my credit card
and if they do not pick me up to pay my premium then I will have to
reduce the amount of the payments I was making and it will be a lot
longer to when I will be able to pay off this card, a lot longer. I
had already increased the amount of money I give my mom each month
for food and cleaning supplies, etc. My budget has gotten very tight
now :( Oh well, the story of my life!!
