it pours.......

So they say. Between Tom's truck needing repairs (which are now totalled close to $5000), me finding out I won't get paid during my maternity leave (had I known, I would have saved more of my vacation - now I only have 6 days worth of pay between sick and vacation so we are pinching to start saving now to cover that time), I'm just waiting for the 3rd.

We haven't filed our taxes yet....maybe that's the 3rd. Maybe we will wind up owing to throw me completely over the edge.

Where's the money tree when you could use one?
lol!

oh well...it'll pass and all work out but right now, I'm a little bitter! bwahahahhaa

Sad
i'm sending positive thoughts your way that your tax return will be big ... and will help with the truck and the maternity leave $ needed!

i hate $ issues ....they are so stressful and worrisome! being married almost 29 years, we've had our share of scary and worrisome $ issues .... hugs to you girl!!! it WILL all work out!!

Renee, I'm sorry girl! Money woes SUCK majorly. Maybe your taxes will come back with a decent refund and you can tuck that money away for maternity leave?

Ohhh girl! I hear ya! Sorry about those money woes... I know the feeling!

I sure hope you come into an unexpected windfall! I am sure it'll all work out for you though!

If only the decent American people could stop the power hungry, greedy hogs from raising the gas prices... that would be a great start, right?! I'm sick of it! And grocery prices sky-rocketing... when will it end?

I can totally relate to your $ woes right now too. Maybe you'll get good news like we did & find out you're getting back 1/3 more than you did last year on your taxes. Unfortunately, ours is going to pay towards our credit card. Our roof is leaking bad in 4 places, and the hubby has been laid off since Black Friday of last year & just found out he won't have a job to go back to, since they're closing & filing Chpt 13.

Maybe you can do like I did & start stocking up on things for the house & groceries now, so you don't have to feel the pinch so bad during that time. I stock up on pastas, sauces, detergent, soap, TP & paper towels, shampoo, canned veggies & just about anything else that won't parish over a long period of time. You don't have to buy it all at once now, just a few things here & there, so you don't feel the pinch now either. And maybe you can put back a little extra each week in a savings account for one or two house payments or vehicle, which ever one would be harder to come up with the money for. Maybe even just save up enough for one payment, but divide it in half so you only need to come up with half a payment later. does that make any sense? I know it's hard to come up with such a large chunk of change for your hubby's truck - that is a big OUCH! I'm saying some prayers for you that there is no 3rd thing & you find a way out of this crunch! {{HUGS}}
