In the span of 2 1/2 weeks I paid off my bankruptcy, got the internet back, lost my uncle and got pneumonia. So the end of October was a little bit hectic… so many ups and downs. All I can say is I am looking forward to Christmas and the New Year.
I got a call on the Tuesday my Uncle died as I was getting ready for work from my mom, I did not get to it in time and the voicemail picked up, it was her and she was sobbing and asked me to call her back. I called and she let me know my Uncle had passed away. He was 51.
I went in to work, let them know what was going on and then grabbed the car and headed home to Digby. Cory had to work and I was not sure what was going on so I left him in the city. My uncle had passed away early Tuesday morning, the funeral was Sunday.
It’s hard loosing a loved one, and to be honest I still am not really ready to face that he is gone. It’s too hard to think about it. So maybe I’ll talk about that more in a while. For now I am just not ready.
While in Digby I payed off my bankruptcy. I should be getting the conditional discharge papers soon and I am really looking forward to starting to build my credit back up and getting on with my life, financially. I still have about $500 outside the bankruptcy I owe but that’s going to get paid before the New Year. I have everything else paid up. All my bills are current, what a feeling!
We made the decision to get internet back. Cory wants cable and I wanted internet but we could not get both for at least 6 months (cause of the bankruptcy). I paid the first bill, 2 weeks before it was due by. My next goal is to put aside some money over the next year or two for a down payment on a place to live. We want to own. Have a yard, our own place.
Just as I was getting somewhere money wise, I get pneumonia, and so does Cory. Our next pay’s are going to suck. But we still have enough to pay all bills and have tons of food so we will be fine. I can’t believe I have missed 2 weeks (one for my Uncle and one because of pneumonia) and money wise it has barely affected us. This is where I have been hoping to be. I am finally here.
Time to get Cory in the same shape.
