Relief is on its way!

Its been a little stressful around our household lately. Its nothing Drew has done. Its nothing my husband has done (this time). Its those monthly commitments we call bills.

Its been a challenge around here. The credit card companies have played their tricks and I'm sick of it. I'm tired of being hounded by phone calls at home, work and on my cell phone and the occasional email that I'm late on a payment (I know already that I'm late with the payment, it doesn't matter how much you call me, I still won't have any money until payday!). We have full-time tuition for day care to juggle. I have a husband who likes to have toys (but I think he's finally realized he has to give and take a little more for now). And me, who hates to fall behind on commitments (especially bills).

So this week, I'm scrounging up the little I have left to sell to try to make a little extra money. I signed a contract today to consolidate some credit cards (I loved telling Discover card today what I did). Jeff decided to sell his motorcycle and continue looking for a part-time job.

We don't know if we will be able to afford an April visit to see Zack, but we will try like heck to see him. We canceled our February visit (mutually between us all which was nice) because things are tight, but I don't want to cancel two in-a-row if I could avoid it.

But now with all of our recent decisions this week, I feel a little relieved. I feel a little of the weight lift and I could relax a little. I had a little spring in my step tonight and it was nice.

I've been feeling the same way lately.

It sounds like you've got a plan in place so keep your head up, Im sure brighter days are coming.
