Snowball Affect (or is it Effect... I can never remember that rule).

Wednesday, January 20, 2010

So this went from bad to worse. I was supposed to have $50 for gas this week now that I'm driving back and forth to school. It's not there. From what I knew the electric bill had already cleared, but evidently not. And I have an account that has to stay above 50 or you get charged a fee and because I went under it without realizing it when the 50 got deposited it mostly went to replenishing the account. I feel stupid for not keeping track of my money better. I also can not find a job. I've applied at so many places. Tomorrow I'm going to go to every gas station in this town and the one I'm going to college in. I'm hoping I'll get a job. I need one or I'm not sure how next months bills are getting paid.

One good point, Nick and I went grocery shopping tonight. We are out of money and food so we had to go with really cheap stuff, like ramen noodles cheap. I did grab some grapes though. I also knew I might binge since I'm a mess so I grabbed a pack of the pre-cut watermelon even though it's expensive. I have already devoured it all. Hopefully things start to get better. I'm just feeling so miserable already.

    Hang in there Amber. So like this is a suggestion and I know Nick is picky (so is my husband) but maybe we could all do dinner together... I always end up having to make like enough for 4 or 5 people because that is what most recipes call for and we usually throw it out too... so like you guys could maybe eat dinner or something with us?? I don't know.

    I can certainly understand the financial situation you are in, I am unemployed right now as well. You are under a lot of stress right now with that and with your Grandmother passing (I am so sorry for your loss), so your urge to binge is completely understandable. You did well by preparing for it by stocking healthy choices. Good luck to you in finding a job soon!! emoticon emoticon
