UGh - check book balencing

November 30th, 2004 at 07:52 pm

For starters I am completly incapable of balencing the checkbook, but my husband works so I get the task, not that it saves him any time because he always has to come help me figure out what I did wrong. And I ALWAYS do something, usually multiple somethings, wrong.

Unfortunatly my second trouble is that it never goes up! or anyway my CC payments never go up. And this time is the worst, I had to have money taken out of my account to cover a check, with accompaning fee, I have checks sitting in my desk that could go in to cover the mortgage, but I can't get to the bank to cash them! (no car and my kids can't walk that far, not that I want to either - 5ish miles?).

Now I could tell my husband but it isn't as if he can do anything, or I can keep quiet and feel guilty for keeping it from him.

And to top it all off I have to go to the DR for my daughters one year check up on Thursday and face the choice of either making her pay or using a credit card!

Oh yeah

Ok the whole reason I was looking for someone to commiserate/brag/brainstorm with. I froze cat food last night! is that weird or what? I made a chicken in the oven and like usuall I boiled the carcass for soup. Well since the stray has been begging for food everyday I started removing the bone from the mush left over and giving the cat the scraps, they are way to much work for me to the skin and the fat and the tendon (boy chickens have alot of tendons!) But this time there was so much mush left from both chickens (I cooked two btw) that I had to freeze it or it would go bad before the cat ate it all! (it is a small cat.) I was left feeling really silly I mean I froze baby food when my kids used it but cat food??

Like anyone wants to hear me whine?

Ok for the longest time I have been feeling alone in my search to save money. My friends and family are the people with cable and constantly growing CC debt with no action. Sure some of them talk about it, and my SIL even uses cloth diapers when she can't afford any disposable s till payday. But A they are expensive disposables, and B she had 6 bucks for DR. Pepper, and beer.

Anyway I can babble to my hearts content on this journal and feel connected to the savings world!

Now I have to go eat breakfast and try not to feel guilty about starting a load of laundry in my energy wasting washing machine, which will then be put into my old but working dryer, again a cost I chose to pay. (while complaining about other people wo chose DR perpper. bit mean of me ain't it?)
