Another Friday and this week I am just not feeling it…I really just want to go home and sleep, not surface for a few days – we’ve had a lot of hits coming at us this week, namely as it pertains to our son and some behavioral issues that are causing an uproar with our jobs…why you ask? Well because he was suspended from riding the bus to the Brigades, which in turn means he’s not going to Brigades which means that my hubby and I are having to re-work our schedules to be home with him when he gets off of school…and this on the coat tails on having already paid his tuition for this week (he was suspended on Wednesday and has been out for the last two days – he won’t be returning until next Thursday)…my boss isn’t happy AT ALL at the prospect of me having to work from home – for some reason her micro-management neediness has wavered and she’s not at all ok with me working from home – the need to keep me under thumb is just an annoyance…I want to scream at this – I told her in my interview I don’t like being micro-managed and I actually don’t work well like that…but alas she doesn’t listen to anyone but herself (I vear off topic here)…so because of the suspension my hubby and I are having to put undue pressure on our co-workers and supervisors…it really is a trickle down effect.

Added to the stress of the above, Monday being Memorial Day I was off of work – UNPAID – this has to be the biggest part of my job I hate/loathe/want to scream bloody friggin murder in my boss’ face about – taking an 8hr. hit to my paycheck is the biggest issue I have.  I did manage to work two hours on Monday, but a migraine kept me from working more – and to add to it my workload has lightened considerably as our field teams are demobing from site…again that trickle down effect – which has caused me to not have enough work to fill evening hours to make-up for Monday…STRESS STRESS STRESS!!!

Adding another layer of stress to all of this – yup you guessed it – Citi has not come back to us yet with a resolution/answer on the restructure, which is putting everything else on the back burner – buying the new car, making travel plans for the summer to visit the family in MD, and possibly getting the budget squared away so that what I pay out each bill pay period is the same for Citi…I sincerely hate that.  Each week we get a canned form letter email from our ‘Homeowner Support Specialist’ telling us there’s no update other than it’s with the final layer of underwriters – we’ve gotten the SAME email from that idiot for the last three weeks…so what are they doing? Sleeping on it? Or are they just that busy? I would prefer it if he’d just tell us that they are busy and have an abnormally large number of cases they are working on vs. the canned response  I’ve been getting.  I finally sent him a message this morning asking for something more concrete, I highly doubt I’ll get a response.

So to say that my life is a royal friggin mess is a vast understatement – the only highlight I’ve had is that my Guest Spot for the Adult Rated Blog went live yesterday, you can visit that here:  All’s Not Fair in Love and Finance I am Super Excited about this!

Alright onto why we’re here the budget – so due to the above listed circumstances surrounding Austin’s suspension his tuition next week is less (and yes I think the last two days should be carried over to next week, I’ve paid it so theoretically I shouldn’t have to pay for next week either…) so you’ll see that.  It’s a bill pay week, but our pay is so much less that it has been due to a shortage of work for Overtime (SUCKS SUCKS SUCKS!!!) so here we go:

 $208.85 Remaining from W/E 05/19/13  $543.31 Lara W/E 05/26/13 Salary

I’ve had to “Borrow” $170.00 from the car down payment account in order to cover the car payment this month due to Citi’s lack of action – I had hoped to have a resolution by now, but alas that has not happened – so now we have to repay that money…thankfully, or not as the case may be, my UDR Employee Purchase plan has to be cashed out, that’s roughly $150 that’ll be coming to us within the next 10-days or so that’ll put some of that back…though I wish they could have turned it into public stock…but nope…UGH!

To say I am not happy with this is a vast understatement – hoping next pay period I can make some kind of payment to the utilities!

Well enough from Me! Have a Good Weekend Everyone!
