Sometimes We Have to Let the Stress Go!
So this is my house with a little picket fence, and this is our truck.
Lately as with so many others we are having a difficult time, not personally, but one thing seems to keep piling up and that is the bills. Today we had our truck fixed, to the tune of 2400...the sad thing is we have purchased extended warranty, but this is considered general wear and tear! So in the last year with insurance, we paid 5200 for a broken waterline, and now 2400 for the truck which is necessary for my husband to get to work and the drive is over an hour to work. So 7600 should have been covered...I have no faith in insurance companies what so ever. I have a slight disability cheque I recieve every month...so for fun tonight when my husband knew I was stressed over money, this is what he came up with...1.IF your a bill collector, better get in line, 2.Sorry we are unable to come to the phone as there is such a pile we can not make it over the top in time to answer. Do not leave your name and number as there is no pen that writes. Thankyou for calling us with such wonderful news. 3. DUE TO limited money, we have decided to go and spend our last remaining money at mcDonalds...note to self ,see if we can get ketchup packages. 4. Then he came up with this one. If they call, we will pretend we have won a cruise, you know the ones that leave a message every day. Meet us at the ship! Anyway it got more and more ridiculous than that....no bill collectors are calling because we are just making it. You see we were a two income family and went to one income. I am not complaining, it is just how it is! So we owe more money, we will deal with it, and really as long as we have each other, our sense of humor, we will make it through the tough times. I have been through lots in my life, maybe oneday I will tell my stories, all I know is not to give up, just keep doing, just keep believing. I used to think one day my ship will come in...Maybe it is here right now, maybe I just can't see it. Does'nt matter...Today is My Best Day, and every day after that I plan to have another!
