I’ve been feeling pretty down this week, in case you hadn’t noticed. Mostly about money. Things are pretty close to the wire here. I had enough money in the bank to tide me over until next week but totally forgot I had insurance coming out of my account. Arrrghhh! I’ve gotten some money for clothes I sold on ebay and swore I’d not touch it because I need to buy running shoes, but I think I’m going to have use some to buy milk and other necessities. Not good.
I suspended my gym membership this week and that cost $30, but better to do that than keep paying. I’m also expecting a few cheques for work I’ve done but they are very slow in coming.
I dunno, I feel like every time I start getting ahead, something comes up and I’m further behind. I’ve had a few job leads but it takes so long.
Oh and to top it all off, our landlords came around the other day. Our rent includes all our bills – electricity, gas etc – and they reckon because our power bills are so high, they are going to make us start paying them or else put our rent up $40 a week. Our power bills are huge but we live in a very old, very uninsulated house. Not to mention that legally, they can’t do that. You can’t put someone’s rent up that much. If they go ahead with it, I’ll be taking them to court. I really don’t know how people can be so horrible. They give slumlords a bad name.
So anyway, I’ve been pretty down, these things wear away at you like a dripping tap. At least I’ve not been drowning my feelings in food. Mostly because I can’t afford to.
