Back on the saddle again because I have to.

March 15th, 2011 at 08:44 pm

So...I'm back on the saddle, again because I have no choice. I was actually a little depressed last week and haven't written in a week due to feeling like I'm super stuck.I just couldn't fathom spending more money on what was already owed. We paid $7000, thinking we were all caught up with the mortgage, it turns out that we still have to pay another $1400 with fees, interest, etc. I knew that the rest of this month was going to be tight, but wow, not like this. I even withdrew money over the weekend before the weekend charges could hit on Monday, just so we would have cash in our hand, even though I knew we would go in the red on both accounts. I even borrowed from my business account just to get a few things from the grocery store. Anyway, the good news out of this is that we are only eating what we have in the house and I am finding creative ways to extend things. We'll make it because we have no other choice, but sheeeesh...getting out of what I am going to call "financial hell/purgatory" is really hard, talk about rings of fire to jump through.lol.

    Yes, it's really hard, but it will feel so good when you get out of that hole. The good thing is you see what you have to do and you are forging ahead.

    Hang in there, Mamas. The worst part is from now until you are current on everything. You'll be there soon and then things will get MUCH easier. You can do this!

    Indeed it is hard. There are so many days that can feel like one step forward, two steps back, but you are doing it, you are getting there and pretty soon it will be two steps forward and only one step back. Hang in there. And keep posting even when things are super tough. It helps and you'll get the encouragement you need to keep plowing ahead.

    You are doing a great job. It does suck when you think you are getting somewhere and then something else knocks you down, but you are determined to win and show your children that you are in control. Stay positive.
