Debt and Unexpected Emergencies
Every month it seems some new emergency crops up that keeps me from paying my credit card debt down. Though I recently began making almost twice as much as I used to, I have yet to see any benefit from it, because life keeps reminding me of why it sucks. I’m trying very hard to see the bright side, in that at least I have the money to keep up, but I had such grand plans for paying off both cards and being out of debt in less than two years. In fact, I so much wanted that dream to come true, that I went ahead and paid my ideal amount on both cards despite the fact that it hurt me to do so. That extra $100 would have come in handy towards the end of last month.
The window unit in my room went out, but because my unit was custom installed in my wall, I had to pay for both the new unit, but for someone to install it. The guy did a crappy job, but at least it was only $125. That was last month. This month the fuel pump on my car quit working. Bright side, my nephew can fix the car for free, I just had to buy the part, and the car was in my driveway when it happened.
But the inability to pay my debts down the way I want to is so bloody frustrating. I’m carrying about $3000 worth of debt on both cards. I planned to have the one card paid off by now, and then to use what I was paying for both towards the other. I’m not going to be stupid this time, however. I’ll just have to pay the minimum this month. I also want to be able to give my Mom something, because I hate that I haven’t been able to, but for the second month in a row, I have to skip her, because all three of my domains were expiring this month too. Aaagghhhh!!!!
