As July starts to double digit I realize I haven't factored in some bills; the comes do every six months or once a year bills. I freeze. Dead in my tracks. I have forgotten and I now live on the pittance of Social Security. Security? Not in this day and age. Not in my pocketbook. No longer am I bringing down 2 large a month and ends would always meet. I am heading to the big crack in my fiscal reality.

"I have forgotten " I tell it to the garnisher of my wage. They impart a feeling of needles under my nails or other torture du jour in the bag of tricks. We have our ways. A chill runs down my spine and back up again. I wring my hands and stifle a tear. What to do --- What to do.

One thing I am certain of is it will all work out. It always does and always will if I don't do anything really dumb. When I stop being overwhelmed and step out of combat mode the answer will come. For instance, I have over 600 CD's and an almost empty ipod. at a dollar a cd that's the hot tuna this month. or something similar, along those lines. Just trust god and clean house.

OMG, I used to RUN, RUN from anything money. I have had TONS of financial probs over the years because I wouldn't even open my bills.
I didn't even believe in G-d at that time and everything worked out. In fact, I am more financially set than ever in my lifetime -- truly blessed.
Imagine what can happen when you DO believe in G-d! And I know you do, B.
Keep me informed of how things are going, k?

Living below your means. It's a great concept whatever your income. There are lots of sites devoted to sharing information about it. After all. What's really important? Good luck.
