71 weeks to the finish line!

Last week I posted that week # 73 for the second time..  Well, it was actutally week 72...BUT WHO'S COUNTING????

LOL.  The weather is changing and I'm ready for it.  I'm trying to focus on Christmas savings but the cost of everyday expense is increasing so much that I'm finding it harder and harder to save money.  I've got to try a little harder, that's all.  

In two weeks I'll pay off the dentist. $120.00...and that's the END to the medical/dental bills.  All in all I cannot complain.  DH will be traveling less so I'll not be home alone as much.  We are both fairly healthy, so I cannot complain.  

LIFE is GOOD!

Norma -

Can you go back to your trustee with an increase in cost statement to try to get a bit more in your pocket?

No. She pressured us to surrender DH"s bonus check for $2.200 this past summer when we ask to keep it for my medical bills & DH's dental bills. It took every dime of it plus some to pay all the bills. But she really wanted us to let the court have it. We can make it another 17 mos. or so. You just have to really plan, plan, plan and what money closely. I just want it all over with. Now if I get laid off at work...YES...I'll march right back in that court room immediately!
