I hope this missive finds You well and not stressing too much over the stupidity of humanity on display, so far, this month, in this country and around the world.
Sir, I am writing to You, with the deepest respect, in all humility, to ask...WTH???
Um...anyway, where was I?
My last post on my Mad Macedonian blog, on the 6th, was about how I was "taking a deep breath, letting the negativity go & moving forward" in my life.
Several things converged, in its aftermath, to allow me to pay my late rent earlier than expected and pay the rest of my Sept. bills without digging into my NEXT paycheck (9/25), including donations, and a paycheck that saw my raise go into effect and include some holiday pay and a quarterly bonus, as well.
I am very grateful for these blessings.
While it appears my rent will again be late for October my plan was, as described, to begin apartment hunting and moving forward as best I could with bill paying and rent (probably late in Nov. & December, too), doing what I can to put a little money aside as well (I am now eligible for the 401K at work and a contribution match by my employer, but don't yet see how, or when, I can start doing this.)
A first step was to withdraw from the SNAP (food stamps) program because an increase in income would mean my meager allowance would be cut in half at the very least. Besides, my renewal date is soon anyway.
It's just not worth the hassles dealing with govt. paper pushers would entail, from month to month, to keep getting even $50; It was never my intention to stay on the program the rest of my life, anyway.
So, Lord, what do You do?
