Thanksgiving in July

July 4, 2007

It’s the beginning of the third quarter, and it’s still not clear who is going to win this year’s fiscal game, but I have to say that despite all the setbacks, financially, emotionally, and familially (that’s not right, is it? It’s just familial), I’m slowly creeping towards a milestone of financial stability.

No, there’s not much left after the bills are paid and I’ve mentally subtracted the amount of the outrageous loan I made to my brother. Nonetheless, I have a steady job that brings in a few slices of bacon every two weeks, and I am, at the end of the day, able to pay the bills and have a little left over. It’s time to be grateful that, despite all the obstacles in the way, and despite all the hardships that are yet to be faced, progress is still being made.

There’s light at the end of this tunnel. And I’m grateful.

  1. I feel the same way. When I stare at my (slowly) diminishing student loans, and rising retirement/savings funds, I’m feeling a whole lot better about being able to make it through. 2 weeks to your next paycheck is a long time though, when you’re counting the days!!! 🙂

    Many thanks for your support!!!!

  2. ~Mrs. Fab~ 2 weeks really feels a whole lot longer than it should, especially considering that I’ve never been paid more frequently than bi-weekly.

    And you’re absolutely welcome! Dealing with that sort of conflict with your family makes life seem rather bleak, I know it helps me immensely to have (even anonymous) moral support.
