Money

I admit it - I've been whining and obsessing over money lately. Due to other people's sloth and foolishness, and me letting them get away with it, plus my own unwillingness to play hard ass with all of it, I ended up with no reserves, painful payoffs on debts, and other crap. My expenses have gone up, too - cell phone, message line, utilities, and, of course, gasoline.

No more of this - it stresses me out too much. On the 15th, the last of the amount I'm in the hole from the garbage hauling at the old place will be caught up. I have to call my car insurance agent, to get the new rates (up). I still have to pay down the $2,000 on my mastercard from medical stuff (the f'ing 'out-of-network' hospital cost me $3,000 instead of the $1,000 I'd planned on.)

I still have some huge expenses coming up, in addition to what I already have spent. SiliCon is a big one. They already owe me ~$300 for mailing and fees on the first two PRs, soon to be a third. I am printing as much as I can myself, but I don't know whether they'll be able to afford the program book, at an estimated $3,000 for commercial printing. Maybe I can print the inside myself, and just get the color cover done on gloss paper, not cardstock. I have to buy more lamination sleeves, too (~$30). Then there's the hotel cost - $400+ for datapard and I.

With Fuzzy having screwed up his disability, there won't be any help from him, either.

Silly girl, I think we can afford to feed you. It may not be snazzy or fast food, but we always have the basics around, or the ingredients to make them. We're just a little lower on meat than usual.

BTW, the stove in the back kitchen is clear now.
