Back at work

July 26th, 2016 at 09:55 am

I am back at my second job after my surgery complications. And so things are getting back to normal.

I have been cooking more at home. I found a great website that helps you plan your meals and then gives you the grocery list too. I spent all day Sunday baking. I have meals for all week now. And the majority of them are diabetic friendly.

I think we are about ready to start looking at getting the HELOC in just my name. My credit score has gone up drastically and I think I can qualify for it now. After I do, I think I am going to quit my second job. I just can't do it anymore. My first job is becoming more time consuming and I am beginning to struggle. Of course that is assuming I can make ends meet without it. I have to sit down tonight and really take a good look at my budget.

Stupid Stupid Mistake

I have two checking accounts, one is so I can transfer money to my DD if I need to and the other is the account I use Daily. I paid some bills on Friday and used the wrong debit card! Fortunately I had a little bit of money in there, but not enough to cover everything. So I have one overdraft fee and I am still in the negative! I have cash to put in on Tuesday, I just hate that I made such a stupid mistake! I am going to try to get the bank the waive the fee because I don't think I have had one waived this year.

Dreary June Financials

Well...at least I paid my bills and didn't have to beg, borrow or steal to do so. But I didn't do as well as I would have liked. I am extremely disappointed with the amount of money I spend on food. Between eating out and groceries I spent an outrageous amount of money. I am working on eating out by taking my lunch to work. But pizza was my down fall last month. I ordered pizza like 6 times. Must make an effort not to do that. If I could just get the eating out number down, I would be happy. I did manage to put $40 into my savings account.

I haven't heard from plastic surgeon and suspect that I won't. I made it clear that if insurance didn't pay I couldn't do anything.

I fell up the stairs yesterday which really hurt. But the drainage has stopped and I wasn't in pain...

I finally admitted to myself yesterday that my company is in serious trouble and I might not have a job much longer. The owner was counting on a SBA loan to save us, but we found out we don't qualify for it. I don't know what is going to happen. My boss(who happens to the owners daughter) is leaving the company. I knew this was going to happen. They tried to grow too quickly. But my boss said that she knows something I don't and that I will be okay if my company folds. I think she means that I will have a job where she is going, which is a company that I have a long standing relationship with. I don't know what that will entail but I am scared that it will mean driving to Atlanta, about 2 hours away. We shall see what happens.
