I seriously feel like I need to play the role of Ebenezer Scrooge when it comes to our finances – hold every penny earned close to my heart and not let it go unless ABSOLUTELY necessary – never having fun – always pushing friends/family and events off to the side.  We’ve been hit from every angle as of late and frankly it’s getting old!

So since my last post let’s see what’s happened:

Silver’s repairs FINALLY wrapped up with a $250.00 deductible being paid out of our Merrill Account, and the rental cost was $754.53 for the 37-Days it took to get the repairs completed.  Ugh. I did send a copy of the receipt with an email style invoice to the repair shop requesting reimbursement for the rental cost as it exceeded the estimated number of days they told me repairs would take.

So that left us with none of our tax refund left – the remaining balance went to buying groceries/gas and basically supporting us for the last month while I looked for work.  I did manage to find a part-time position at a major department store retailer in the South and East working in Fine Jewelry, so not terrible. But it pays $9.00/hr maxing out at 24.0 hours a week until a full-time position opens.  Joy!

In the meantime we’ve re-done our food stamps and now have more money in Food Stamps every month to help us pay for groceries – the mortgage is still in process, need to check-in there and find out what the status of that is. Hubby went back to DSS yesterday to apply for Medicare to be told that the state no longer covers adults like they do children, SO he was directed to Soc. Security to apply for disability in hopes they can get him the coverage he needs for his heart issues.

Otherwise, we’re down to our last $100 until I get paid Friday…fun right?!

So that’s that ya’ll!

  3. Good luck! I’m still unemployed for the most part 4 months later except for my part-time contract job. It’s hard. Hang in there! I’m rooting that you guys are able to keep your house.

  4. I was thinking of you today. How are things?
