Haven't been here in a while

December 29th, 2010 at 12:21 pm

I can't believe that the last time I was on here was in September! Not much has changed since then. I had to put the new transmission on my parents credit card. It was worth it to do the repairs. My car is still in good shape.

I managed to get through Christmas without using any credit cards. My kids had an awesome Christmas and it was all paid for with cash.

I am still attending college online. I got a c and two b's last semester. I think I may have overdone it taking three courses. But if I don't take that many, I end up having to pay some out of pocket.

I haven't been able to make extra payments to my credit cards in a while. I am pretty strapped right now. I was cut to 30 hours at work and that has really caused a shortfall. It amounts to over $400 a month that I am losing. But at least I still have a job. Yes I could look for another job, but I am really well paid for the area I live in and doubt I could find a job making the same amount of money. I would still be short if I found something else. So I will just stay here and work things out.

Thank goodness for my parents...without their help I would probably be homeless. I haven't been able to give them anything toward my house payment. I am hoping to turn things around in January.

We have also been battling Lice in the household. My daughter started it and it has since spread to me. I hate the little suckers. It seems we just can't get rid of them! I even soaked her head in mayonaisse, which worked the last time. We did another treatment last night and washed everything in hot water. Hopefully this will be the end of it!

Sorry to ramble. I promise to not stay away so long this time!

    Just this morning I checked your blog to see when was the last time you were here. Welcome back; I missed you!

    Nice to hear from you! My daughters had lice, too. My best advice: comb, comb, comb to get rid of the those nits and eggs that won't come off the hair unless you do.

    Thank goodness for families who hang together in hard times! Be sure and tell your parents every now and then how much you appreciate their help. If your work hours are too scant, maybe offer your parents help with projects around their house or business in lieu of a payment (or half payment, whatever) on the loan.

    Glad to see you again! Smile I've had a lice battle at my house too. I second creditcardfree - lots of combing ugh! Also treating like every third day. I have also used Botanic Gold Cleanser (aka Planet Solution) which is natural and kills the bugs well, but not the nits Frown. Good luck I guess it's the season.
