Well since Willowbatel ( 😉 ) has so many questions that “my avid readers” want answers to then I am going to make it my Friday post this week.
Is your husband still working?
Yes, yes he is. We are coming into winter here which means sales slow down tremendously. Normally we live off our savings throughout the winter but this year, there are no savings so we are just buying time before the bank decides when they want to foreclose. It seems bill collectors don’t believe you when you say you have no money…”oh well borrow it!” more than one has suggested this, yesterday I responded to this with…”hey Tonya, can I borrow some money?” She didn’t find it as humorous as I did. Apparently this is no joking matter and I responded, “how would you like me to deal with the matter then, Tonya? You guys call me 5 times every night between 6pm and 8pm, so after explaining to your all night after night that I HAVE NO MONEY, I’ve decided that the calls are in fact humorous.” and ended the call with “speak with you tomorrow Tonya.” Alright first off, I KNOW it’s not a laughing matter but this far into it I have to do something other than cry and have hissy fits. I DO NOT want my kids to know how bad it is especially with Santa Claus coming is right around the corner.
Did you finally quit smoking?
Well at the moment I am chewing on a nice stick of nicotine flavored gum. It turns out when you don’t have any money to buy them, then well you don’t have any money to buy them, hence you don’t smoke.
Did your phone solicitor job go anywhere after that first paycheck?
Ahhhhhhhhhh the scam of a lifetime. Ya it went somewhere…a complaint to Consumer Affairs, The Better Business Bureau, and The Wage and Labor Board. I ended up being paid a grand total of $74 for 80 hours of work. That sucked and when I had gotten the job I was so excited that I would finally have some money coming in but apparently my time is worth not even a whole dollar an hour. Blah. So now I’m still looking, and pretty much that’s what everyone in my community is doing. We are all bankrupt including the Town.
Your avid readers want to know. (wow you’re really going to hate me for writing that)
Nah, I don’t hate you. It’s great for the head to know you have avid readers. 😉
So let’s see what’s new? Hmmmmmmmmmm We have a leaking water line that’s going to cost us about $2000 to fix, so I decided that this was something we should use our emergency credit card for. Well it turns out that Credit Card company decided we were too much of a liability and snagged our credit from us, we have had this credit card for 9 years! So the water line will continue to leak, we’ll continue getting huge water bills and not be able to pay them, so they’ll turn our water off. Pretty much that’s all that is new, financial crap that haunts our every hour. I so can not wait for 2010, because it definitely has to be better than 2009!
