in the RED
This morning I could present you with some financial dilemmas we are facing - or I can mention how I am going to drop out of my bible study because I can't seem to find the time to go. Something always comes up. and the thing is, I have been actually doing it. It's just going - that is hard for me. With the schedule change and all, I get talking to the Husband and time flies. HONEST: This is not about me not wanting to go. I really do enjoy it once I am there. I just can't get out the door on time. I always feel so rushed on Wednesdays.
Or I could just say how totally disappointed in the Husband's new job. (You must have known this was coming) It was like a bait and switch. They did not tell him, until after he got the job, quit the other - about these furlough days. So the job posted a amount that is your salary. BUT it isn't really what you are being paid. You would be surprised how much 1 day furlough can reek havoc in your already shaky budget. Then they did not give pay him shift differential and holiday pay. I mean what is with THAT? And to think this is the State of California! I knew I knew it.
After going over the bills yesterday we already are in the red. Dug out a piggy bank we had, when we were living in the RV. Still had coins in it. So I "deposited" the coins in my automatic counter bank and we have all total $85 in coins that I will take to coin-star.
I keep hearing from the media that the economy is getting better - that they created a massive amount of new jobs SOMEWHERE. People are buying cars again - Happy Days are here again - I am scratching my head here - WE are not seeing these good times, like everyone else is. Is it because California is broke?
WE are so screwed.
