Serenity - I agree, companies usually have some methods for doing advances for people, but then a lot of our guys won't ask due to pride.

Norma have you ever thought of doing some hydrophonic (SP?) gardening indoors in the winter?

Hey Norma, I work for a small business and the other people here travel alot also. Although my boss writes expense checks faithfully on the 16th the and the 1st, we do occasionally have employees who simply cannot front these things and get an advance expense check before they ever leave town. Not uncommon at all.

Just an idea.....

Norma, I hope the hospital forgets entirely about that mammogram bill!! And I'm keeping my fingers crossed for you that one way or another, you manage to put aside some savings.

Ah Karen, pets are really expsensive, but give so much happiness!! And unexpected laughter...

This morning, I had leaned into the shower to turn on the water and I heard a screeching MEOW! I hadn't noticed, but Gulliver was sitting at the other end of the tub. it's really, really hot in our apartment and I think Gulliver was sitting in the tub, trying to find a cool place. Ooops! So soaking wet, he went tearing out of the tub. A minute later, I heard a second screech: Gulliver had gone from the bathroom into DDs bed. She had been awakened by a soaking wet and panicking cat jumping into bed with her. At that point, everyone was wet from my shower except me! I dont' know why, but I simply couldn't stop laughing at the whole escapade. DD (and I imagine Gulliver) weren't too thrilled, but oh my, I was laughing until I was crying!!

Oh Norma I hope you can build up some savings, and make them stick for an emergency.

We just had a car payment come out and only have 5 left. It is gone in June and
