Sorry I have not posted in a while.  I am going through another down phase.  I really don't like feeling this way, but sometimes it just can't be helped.  All the rain we had I am sure didn't help.  The weather has finally cleared up.  It felt like we need to build an ark or something. 

I found a note on my car saying I can't park it here all day and night, if I don't move it, I will get towed.  The worst thing that can happen.  I honestly don't know what I am going to do.  It won't start.  I have no problem getting it towed, my triple a membership will cover that.  I just don't have enough money to get it fixed.  I am short about $150.  Even that won't really fix it, but it will make it runnable so I can move it.  They don't seem to mind if I sleep here, but they need the parking space for during the day.  Which is totally understandable.  They have been very patient.  I am going to get it towed in the morning to the place I want to have it fixed at and see what happens from there.  I don't get paid again until a week from Friday. 

I really wish now I didn't close my credit card account, but I was scared I would use it and not be able to pay it off.  I figured it was worse for my credit to get behind on my payments than it was to not have a credit card.  I figure my mortgage payments keep my credit going and once I am working full time again, I will just reapply for another one. 

Things just keep getting harder and harder. 


  1. If I may ask, what city are you in?

  2. You wrote "I figure my mortgage payments keep my credit going..." and by writing this I am confused as to your actual situation.

  3. I own an apartment that I am currently renting out. I can't sell it because I will lose money and not be able to pay off the note to the bank. So I decided to rent it out a while back and I rented a room in a private home, but when my income dropped I could no longer afford the rent on top of my other expenses.

    I am hoping to sell in January. The market here was improving, but I believe that is no longer the case.

  4. Wow... and I thought I had it bad. I've been unemployed for 2 years now and even with a degree I can't even get a minimum wage job. We haven't lost our house yet but we pretty much have sold everything of value to keep afloat. Crazy times for sure. Hang in there.

  5. I am sorry to hear about your current situtation. I know exactly what you mean. I sold pretty much everything of value myself. I have very little left now.

    We have to believe that things will get better. That is really all we can do now.

    I hope you find a job soon.
