IS THERE MORE MONEY THAN MONTH? OR MORE MONTH THAN MONEY? – Marilyn Armstrong

Depletion is our current financial state. This is because this is the time when we pay the mortgage.

It’s The Big Bill of the Month and it pretty much sucks us completely dry until the next fly by of Social Security. We get through the month, but there is usually more month than money. They would have to take away at least a week of month (and probably add one more check) to make it come out even.

I am also contemplating whether or not having taken — as of this morning — THREE antibiotics and a good deal of Flovent — if I am improved from yesterday. I thought when I could get up from the john without a sky hook and grabbing onto the sink, I must be better. But I don’t feel better right now and going back to bed sounds way too yummy.

Regardless, I need to sit up for a while. Drainage. Garry’s sore throat is gone. Now he feels bad everywhere. Welcome to my world.

I actually had to put the drugs from the doctor on a credit card yesterday. I hate that. The clouds are piling up, the temperature is dropping and we are getting sleet for the weekend.

How is this fair? I ask you? Okay, don’t make me rich. Just make me warmer. Make a few flowers bloom.

Is that too much to ask?

  1. To ask for Spring to sprung in your neck o’ the woods is NOT too much to ask. And take comfort. Many of us suffer from the ‘too much month at the end of the money” affliction. I’m grateful enough if I can afford to buy my morning cola fix without counting the pennies too closely. There is an old joke that says “Just when I thought I made ends meet, somebody moved the ends.” Yep. *sigh* Well feel better real soon and my sympathies to Garry and yourself!

  3. I feel your pain…or at least shades of it. The finances took a hit and I’m waiting for a payroll to reach the account before the bills do which is always fun! But, as the storm descended, I snipped a bunch of early blooming hyacinths and brought them indoor. They help to pass the boredom of enforced confinement as the storms roll through. At least we are mostly healthy. I hope you are on your feet—physically and fiscally—soon. And spring will come, eventually it will come. And then, we will all rejoice!

    • It was four years since I got an ugly cold like this. Being broke when the mortgage payment is due is an every month event, so we always have one really super tight week in the middle of the month. If only our mortgage would just go away. All of our other problems would go away with it.

      We probably got this by actually doing what we never do: we went to the mall. Disease central!

  4. Even working AND collecting Social Security, I’ll only be a little ahead at the end of the month. That darn mortgage! Of course, I’d also be a lot happier about it if I could go to and from the house in warmer weather. No, it’s not too much to ask.
