I think I am feeling a little better this morning. My throat is still hurting, but I don't feel as tired. The last couple of nights I have been laying down for a couple hours when I get home and then try to get to bed by 11pm. I think the extra sleep is doing me good and hopefully this won't turn into a full blown cold. It also helps when I get a TXT message from my sweetheart saying, "I can't wait until Saturday. I miss you so much and you are so wonderful." I think if I had pneumonia, getting a TXT like that would make me feel 100% better. :)
Sometimes I am under stress and don't even realize it and when I am stressed I have a hard time handling every day things. Whenever I get really stressed I always break out in a rash on the palms of my hands. So even though I don't realize I am stressed, this is my body's way of saying, "Hey...slow down a little." Late last week my palms broke out in this rash and I stopped to see what could be causing so much stress. Here is what I came up with:
1: My tags were to be renewed in September and I have not had the money to pay the personal property taxes. Because it was 2 year tags I am having to pay the taxes from 2006/2007. Part of me is angry because I know Laura should be responsible for 1/2 of 2006 and probably half of 2007 since she was using the Honda through May of that year, but I know she would never take responsibility for this so there is no reason to even ask her. Because the tags are now late I will have late fees and I am looking at close to $900 for the taxes and tags. The good news is I got a raise at work and it's retro from May, so I know this will help out a lot. But I still worry about being pulled over or my apartment complex towing my car since the tags are expired.
2: Yesterday when I was driving to work my car lost all power. I was turning and suddenly I had no power steering and all the lights came up on my dash. I about had a heart attack. I put the car into park and restarted the car and it's been fine ever since. I know I should probably have it looked at, but I just don't have the money and I am not sure if I want to know if it's a major problem because again, I don't have the money. I believe that if you take care of your car and treat your car with respect then it will be good to you. I had a talk with LuLu and told her how much I appreciate her and I am hoping she will hold on until I have money to figure out what is wrong.
3: Economy. I am making more money then I have ever made, but I am struggling more then I ever have. I am trying to catch up on bills, but it sometimes it seems like I will never catch up. The minute I am able to save some money something happens and I need money for a vet bill or something else. Instead of bailing out the big banks, why not give every American 18 and over $1 million dollars (total would be $200 million), tax us at 30% and we would still have $700,000 to pay all our debts and restore the economy.
Guess who I got to see last Friday:
I think she was just as happy to see me as I was to see her. After I congratulated MJ on her engagement the next thing I said was, "I get to watch Sadie when you guys get married." I am already counting down the days. :)
