Still better than last year...

December 4th, 2009 at 03:31 pm

I haven't been in a blogging mood lately, but I am still around. With the help of my DH, I overdrew my account last week. There was $250 in NSF fees plus the $100 he had spent. I got the bank to refund all but one of the fees and disabled his access to the account. But I had to take a cash advance on the CC that I had made so much progress on just to get back in the positive! Very frustrating, but I am glad that I had a way to solve the situation. It is not the best idea, but at least it eased some of my stress.

All household bills are on time now. My parents are helping me keep it that way. Hopefully, I won't need their help after the first of the year.

I screwed myself on taxes this year. I worked so much OT that I kicked myself into the next tax bracket and will only get a minimal amount of the EIC. Bummer. I was looking forward to a huge refund, but will barely get one at all. At least I don't have to pay!

DH signed the papers yesterday but then he begged me not to file for a while. He is really heartbroken and doesn't want to throw everything away. I don't like being in that position. Counseling didn't work. But maybe the fact that he actually saw the papers may wake him up. Who knows.

I haven't been doing my coupons, but I haven't been shopping at all either. So I need to do some shopping tomorrow.
