*head bang* *head bang* *head bang*

December 15th, 2006 at 11:34 am

I just can't seem to get ahead. I *thought* I was in good shape to have all my credit card and loan debt paid off by the end of the year. After all the money I've spent recently on vet bills and getting Henry's problems under control (and after last week's $150 car repair), I thought the laws of probability would work with me--at least til the end of the year. But NOOOOOO.

The female kitty hasn't been eating or drinking, and it's been three days, so I brought her in to the vet and she's in the hospital now getting rehydrated. That's at least $350-400 I spent on tests etc for her this morning, and if the rehydration alone doesn't do it, then tomorrow she goes off for a $450 ultrasound. Before that, I took the car in for its regular maintenance service and they told me that the inner front axle boots are broken and should be replaced before they need to start sanding the roads--so I have an appointment next week for another $325 (on top of today's $85 for oil change & tire rotation).

Then today I received the last of my part-time job paychecks, since the last class was last week. That's $840 extra a month that I'm really going to be missing.

Maybe I should start looking for a part-time job for my month off of teaching but I am SO burned out and SO don't want to.

So much for ending the year being out of debt.

    wow, that's a lot of bills to hit all at once... and when you were so close too... i'm sure you will get there soon though... hope your kitty gets better... i can still remember the bills from when our cat had gallstones and had to have surgery... ugh...

    I'm sorry. If it makes you feel any better, right before I broke through and managed to pay everything off, I had just everything happen (DH car, me, kitty, trip) and had to put about $1500 on the credit card.

    Its almost like breaking the sound barrier - right before, the plane starts shaking. When you pass the sound barrier, the ride smoothes out.
