Well, the Window Perch Saga continues.
I'll go to bed and Solange will be up there. When I wake up, Laila is up there and Solange is (usually) under the bed.
I'm not hearing any fighting going on through the night, so my guess is, at some point during the night, Solange moves elsewhere and Laila gets up on the perch.
I also have this gut feeling that the two of them will curl up together during the winter months.
Also with the heat comes the funk...and I don't mean the smell of my sweat.
I can feel a mild depression coming on. While I know that this is nothing new and I will get past it...that doesn't make it any easier to deal with.
And of course it gets me brooding about the future, particularly my financial future.
As I wrote awhile ago, I'd been working on re-establishing my credit with a secured credit card. It was my hope that the card would be "graduated" to a "real" credit card in March of this year.
Well, I screwed up on one of the payments. I made the payment BEFORE the new billing cycle happened and, when a financial crunch hit, figured I'd made my payment so I didn't need to make the next.
I was WRONG. Big time. And when I spoke to the bank and explained, they said that since it wasn't a bank error there was nothing they could do.
So now I must go twelve months from the time of the screw-up without missing a payment. That time expires around November. You can just bet that I'm watching that billing cycle VERY closely.
Also, the band money is going to pay a bill that will also help re-establish my credit. And THAT will be mostly paid off by the end of the year.
So I'm in a bit of a hole for the next five-and-a-half months. No wonder I'm feeling a bit funk-like.
But again, there seems to be light at the end of the tunnel. If Life will avoid springing any bad financial surprises on me and allows me to maintain a monetary status quo, I'll be in much better shape by mid-December or thereabouts.
But as I'm certain you all know, Life is a fickle bitch. So I'm not holding my breath.
In the meantime, I appreciate whatever good thoughts you can send. Don't worry - I will come out the other side of this.
And now, to counteract all this bad stuff, we bring you this from FailBlog.org:
I'm not entirely sure this is a Fail. See, if the kids go back to school, then they won't be home. Therefore, mom and dad will have a little more privacy. And they might need this product so they don't make more children and have even LESS privacy.
Okay. Part of maintaining the financial status quo is going to work.
Be seeing you.
