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.
