Putting it in Perspective

So I had my little pitty party yesterday.

Today my husband went and talked to a bankruptsy lawyer. It seems that chapter 7 or 13 are not the answers for us. The lawyer did give us some paperwork we could file with the courts regarding setting up a payment plan. This should stop the garnishment. Yay! We did try to set up a payment plan and they wouldn't take less than $250 a month, which we couldn't afford. Now we may be able to set up something around $100 or $150. That is good.

I was thinking about ways to quickly come up with the money we needed and all I could come up with was asking people to mail me a dollar. Didn't it work for that one gal that had people mail her $1 so she could pay off her credit cards? Well today I did some blog surfing and what do I find...

Now, if you aren't familiar with Dawn she is the gal who had a witty ebay auction for some Pokemon cards her son threw in the shopping basket and this made her an internet sensation. She is hilarious and I have followed her blog on and off since then. She's going through some really tough times right now, worse than what I am dealing with, and I am glad to see that people are helping her out. I am amazed that she has had 300 some people donate money and raised over $10,000! See it can happen. Too bad I don't have any blog followers or an independantly wealthy lonely person that wants to adopt me.

Everything is the Same

Wow. It has been over two years and life is pretty much the same.

I'm still in the same job and burnt out.

I still wonder about my ex boyfriend from high school.

I still would like a sugar daddy to pay my bills. I need about $12,000 now. Anyone have a spare $12,000? Then I could pay off my car and the money owed to Chrysler for the over mileage on my husband's truck. Then I might be able to stay afloat. I'm about to have my wages garnished for the Chrysler thing. I am so glad we leased. We had planned to buy the truck when the lease was up, but guess what? They wouldn't finance us so we had to turn it in and owed $6000 in excess mileage. Bad decisions people. Don't make them. And now this is going to be the ruin of me. I can barely afford to pay for my regular bills. How are we going to get by when they start taking the garnishment?

Oh and I need new tires again.

It's Been Awhile

I got new tires! I know that you were all losing sleep at night thinking about poor Crazy Lady driving around on bald tires.

October was a good month. The hubster got a heafty commission check. We were able to get caught up on bills and get new tires and pay the November mortgage payment too. Unfortunately, nothing for the hubster last month and nothing for this month. This sucks. Commission pay sucks. We can't get ahead. If he could have two good months in a row we might get somewhere, but it is either feast or famine for him and everytime we get ahead we fall behind and have to catch back up. Did I say it sucks? Well, it really does.

Can you say sucka?

I don't know why it always happens to me. It never happens to my husband. I have a problem saying no and maybe they can smell that.

Yesterday, I had just finished grocery shopping with my daughter. We were at the store that people go to when they have no money and need food. The one that you have to put a quarter in the slot to use a cart and bring your own grocery bags. So it is raining and I had just put the cart back and retrieved my quarter when a lady in a Ford Ranger pulls up.

"Excuse me Miss." I am thinking she is out of quarters and wants to trade me two dimes and a nickle for a quarter so I walk up to her truck. "My son and I are on our way up from Arkansas to visit my critically ill dad in the hospital. I have been driving for two days..." Oh she wants directions... "and someone broke the window out of my truck, stole my purse and see this cardboard sign that is what I am using for a window, they almost took our radio. I wish they would've taken the radio instead of my purse. And this here is my 14 year old son. So I understand I have about 100 miles to go still and I have no money. I will send you back anything you can spare. I am so embarrassed I just don't know what to do." I only have 6 dollars on me. I give her five and tell her she doesn't need to send it back. She thanks me, tells me to pray for her and her father. I wish her luck. She pulls off and I get in my car. After I left the lot I see her sitting there waiting for another person to ask for money. I wish I would've caught her license plate. I would feel better knowing she was from Arkansas.

So was I taken for $5 or did I do a good deed? I don't know. I'd like to think I did something good and there is a higher power out there that saw it.

This isn't the first time this has happened to me. A year or so ago I was loading all three kids in the truck and a guy came up behind me. Really caught me off gaurd and gave me some weird story about loaning his car to some lady so she could get gas and she hasn't come back and he needed money for the bus or something. I gave him $5 not so much because I believed him, but because he scared me and I thought if I didn't who knows what would've happened.

The Best of The MTV VMAs

No, I didn't watch them. I had to see the season finale of Ice Road Truckers. And then I had to go to bed. I don't even really know what time they were on. I am just guessing. But I love looking at the pictures from the big events and realizing how out of it (read uncool) I am. Here are some of the pictures that caught my eye.

Check out the gal with the golden nipples to the right of Christina.

I call this one toilet paper butt. Does it not look like she has toilet paper stuck in her outfit?

This guy looks like a cross between a horse jockey and something else. I can't figure out what.

Oh Pink. You look like you are wearing a circus tent. What is going on under your big top?

Whip it! Whip it good! Totally reminds me of Divo. What is up with the boots though? Open toe and open heal, but the rest of your foot is totally covered.

Elvira Mistress of the Dark with blonde hair.

Somebody for got to get dressed. And why did she let him out of the house? Why did he let her out of the house in the jungle inspired mumu?

This is Tokio Hotel from what I read. I haven't heard their music, I don't think. Is the lead singer a guy or a girl? I LOVE the guy on the right's shirt. The Best!
