Hanging On (By a Thread)

Well I'm still here.

I'm hanging on barely, by the tiniest thread.

I have mixed news to report:
  • My scale isn't working right (again). No surprise there.
  • My sick bird is very sick, but probably isn't contagious. The vet's current guess is that she has a tumor.
  • Our biggest client didn't pay his bill on time, and we had to dip into savings to pay our bills this month.
  • The Kid is continuing to be difficult.
  • The diet is still on my "to do" list, but it's sinking lower and lower on the priority list, simply because of all the major disasters happening right now.
It seems like every time I turn around, another disaster happens. We've had several major and unexpected expenses pop up, including dental bills, car/RV repairs, and veterinary bills. All I can say is that I'm glad someone invented credit cards. Yeah, they are evil, but they are the only think keeping us out of complete financial ruin at the moment. Were it not for the evil plasticharge, The SO would probably be dying from a massive toothache/infection, our car would be inoperable, our RV roof would be leaking, and our sick birds would have gone without veterinary care.

Now if someone would just kick my non-paying client in the ass, the world would be a much better place.

Hang in there! It can only get better from here, right? Take 5 minutes a day for YOU to do something YOU like to do and take a breather. YOU DESERVE IT!

I wish you the best of luck with TK (the kid) and your birds. And, if you need a good booty kickin' I'll come and kick your NON-PAYING client's butt! :-)
