Sick and Tired

February 17th, 2008 at 12:10 pm

I am. Every time we get 2 steps ahead we fall 5 steps back. Here is what our financial state looks like right at this moment:
DD1's car in shop $1911.00 to fix (have to borrow the money from my parents and pay them back)
My door handles on the back doors of my van are broken and to replace them will be $420 for parts and labor (One is completely broken off and the other barely hanging so when that one goes we will not be able to open the doors from the outside. This is not covered by warranty.
I forgot to include a $242 payment in my check register and I used my debit card since then and I have incurred $75 in fees.
My tax refund is $2600 but we owe the $2100 from a 2005 error so they will take that off the top and I will give the rest ot parents for the car.
Our computer is messed up and needs to be taken to be fixed and I need to purchase windows xp so that will be approx. $350.
I am very frustrated!!!

    At least you will have the money for the IRS. One doesn't want to owe them money!

    I have been there, done that. As soon as I think my head is above water, there is another wave that crashes me.
    Just hang in there, good luck, and be thankful you have parents who are willing to lend you the cash. Some do not.

    Wow Marie that could seem to be swamping! Try to use it as motivation - I know it could seem terribly hard to see it that way, but maybe you can try??? Use it to build up the backbone to get the financial life turned around for forever? We've had some of those times when we felt we couldn't win for losing. I'm sorry that you're there right now. One of our son's is having terrible car luck as we speak.

    Hope tomorrow looks brigher!

    I am on the SA blogs and, for some reason, have not caught your blog. I know this post was way back in February, but just wanted to say hi and mention that you can probably get the door handles for your vehicle at a junk yard very inexpensively if you know someone who can help you out getting them on your doors.

    Good Luck in your endeavor. I too feel like I am walking backwards sometimes. Some days life is just so frustrating, but it always seems to work out eventually.
