...I am tired of paying down debt, to have it run straight back up on me.

I think I've hit the debt fatigue that sometimes happens.

I'll update the monthly numbers tomorrow, but it ain't looking good. My income tax owing is in the neighborhood of another $6500. That pretty much sets us back almost to where we were in the beginning of the year. I'm trying hard to see the good in this, but I can't. At least it wasn't on a credit card, right?

Rent is due tomorrow. Anticipated payments haven't come in yet, and I haven't started the hours with part-time job either. So, to make sure we still have a roof over our head, I've taken money out of the Emergency fund to cover rent. :(

I don't like this feeling. It seems we get ahead a bit, and then fall back behind. There are bills coming that I had saved the money for, but ended up using it for other expenses. I feel sick to my stomach, and just want to curl up in bed and forget about the world.

I'm hoping Hubby and I will have a budget meeting this weekend, so I can get all these bad feelings off my chest.


  1. Hi hang on in there. I know its hard sometimes. Somedays I wake up & feel a bit peeded off & other days I wake up full of beans!. You be easy on yourself today sounds like you need some tlc xx

  2. I'm sorry, I'm sure you'll be fine! I know how you feel.

  3. I think we have all hit the wall lately. I am just trying to focus in the moment and go from there.

    Hubby and I are having a meeting tomorrow night also. Hope yours goes well.


  4. aw! That IS a terrible feeling, but it WILL pass. Have the budget meeting with Hubby. Once you get talking about this to him, hopefully you'll feel better. Get it off your chest.


  5. I'm sorry you are feeling so unsettled. I hope you can figure it all out - at least make a plan for getting it all paid for.

    Some months are harder than others... hang in there.

  6. Aww.. :( I'm so sorry things aren't going well for you right now. Money (or lack of it!) sure can cause a lot of stress!! :/

  7. Feeling your pain Eboo! You are making progress, you really are though there are times you just want to give up because the progress is hard to see. I want you to click on your Paid in Full tab and review what you've done already this year - you just put your hubby's car loan to rest - that's a huge deal!!
