(((((Mish))))) So sorry for your family and your cousin. I often think that the passing of a rather young person is a wake up call as well. However it seems to need to be closer to home to really make a difference.

Thinking of you. kat

Wow, that's terrible about your cousin's wife.

Sorry, about your ordeal at Sally Beauty Supply, too. I will probably think about it, whenever I shop there, now.

As for Aldi, they have them all around the Atlanta area. She'd have to be a witch to be at all of them at once. I got some whole grain pasta there this week marked down to 50 cents a box. My S would eat pasta every night, but mean mama won't let him.

I hope your next excursion out won't end miserably. frown

Thanks guys. Everyday brings it's new challenges, right?

It's gotten to the breaking point financially. frown

Cable and internet are cut off, electricity is next. I have 7 days to come up wirh over $400. This should be interesting. It just amazes me that someone with a full time job can't pay the bills.

Sorry to be whining. I know a lot of people are in much worse circumstances, i'm just not used to being this far down.

I'm getting really scared.

Can you work out some kind of payment program with them? I know you have tried credit places before but it can't hurt to check again. Your church? I am sorry it has gotten this bad. There has to be some help available out there.

I'll put my thinking cap on.

Whew I don't post for a while and bam!

Mishka...darlin' why not be transparent? Life is a risk, and part of the risk you take is telling Gabe how you feel. Two things can happen: He feels the same or he doesn't.

However, if you ask the question, make sure you are prepared for the answer, whatever way it goes.

As far as your reaction to the broom, I'd say that is a fairly normal reaction. I really could care less about the SG and his W, but I have to be honest...I am glad I moved across the country so I don't have to worry about running into them. (((Mish...)))

Sorry to hear things are so tight.

Some thoughts re: your $400 goal:

- do you have anything you can sell? Garage sale, Craigslist?

- collect cans?

- perform "extra" jobs like babysitting or using other special skills for friends or family in exchange for cash?

If you can find the book Tightwad Gazette by Dacyzyn I think you will find it inspiring.

I've been selling stuff but there are not many buyers out there. Had a garage sale in July and made a couple hundred. You wouldn't believe the hoops you have to go through to have one in my city though. You actually have to buy specific signs and a permit. They don't allow any homemade signs and without a permit you'll get a $100 fine. It's SO lame!

I have 4 items up on Craigslist that I've been trying to sell since August. No luck. Trying still though. None of them is going to net enough to cover the outstanding bills but it would make a little dent.

I've seen that Tightwad gazette. Pretty interesting stuff!

Babysitting? UGH! I can't stand little kids. I barely tolerated my own. grin All my friends and family are in a horrible mess too but I'll keep looking for options.

There really is very little hope these days for most of the country isn't there? Things continue to decline, pricing on everything continues to increase drastically. Heck, my electric costs have increased 50% with NO increase in kwh useage in just the last 6 months. How dumb is that? Water has increased 100%. Again, no increase in usage.

Ok, ok, ok....stopping the obsession over this. There is nothing I can really do about it. Everyone else in the darned country (with the exception of a very small percentage) is facing the same mess.

Big girl panties - check.

No. just can't make my income cover the outgo. Not even close. Even disregarding credit card bills I'm super short. Since mom died it's been harder and harder without her help and I've used my whole savings.
