By Comparison, a good weekend


Yes, it was a GOOD weekend.

So far, the final 24-hour Notice to Vacate has not appeared. So my husband goes down to the thrift store every day in hopes of liquidating just a little more of the USED merchandise.

Because we can’t afford to move it or store it for safe keeping. đŸ˜¦

On Saturday, he sold several lamps (in a lot) for a total of $20. He was also able to sell a used recliner.

Translated, this means that after buying those pesky daily incidentals ( that we used to take for granted ) and putting $10 in the gas tank, he still had $25.00 when he came home Saturday afternoon.

Whooooooohoooooooooooo! I was ecstatic at the prospect of finally being able to do laundry, and I kid you not.

It had been weeks and everything in the house is dirty.

So on Sunday mornning, we loaded up two laundry baskets and headed for the laundromat around the corner from our home.

We filled one of those mega, front loading machines, and did two regular sized loads besides.

And yep that still left several more loads at home to be done but we were grateful that we could do as much as we did.

At the risk of sounding like a whiner face. It sucks not to be able to leave the house, for lack of clean clothes. it had gotten that bad as I have said before.

Most people, can’t imagine… I know I couldn’t before we fell on hard times. But, I think that is part of the problem.

So after we did the laundry, I went back out and was able to buy Sunday’s dinner with what was left.

There was $3.30 left for my husband to start the day with today, which is almost to the penny, where we were last week.

I tell you all this because, this is a vicious cycle of sorts and without help, it’s VERY hard to get out of.

We still have no idea how we are going to get some of the bills paid.

But baby steps, I guess. Today, we have clean laundry.

Have a GREAT Monday!
