Stressed out

UGH! I just want to scream!

I think we forgot to pay the electric bill last month and now we owe $350 bucks.  Crap where am I going to come up with that.  I'm hoping if we pay half they won't cut us off.   I THOUGHT we paid it.    

Ok I went away and did the check book.  Bad news :(  Crap.  I close to $100 short on the utility bill, and that's if I use all the gas money.  I have no idea where we went wrong either.  Nothing has changed.   Just when I think I have it figured out then something like this happens.  I was supposed to be putting away $50 off this check too, guess that's not happening.    

Add that stuff on top of trying to organize and pack and general work/life stress I'm not a happy camper today.  I just need a break once and awhile.  I wish I could just veg out for a bit but that never seems to happen.    I just feel a little overwhelmed right not and I can't quite put my finger on why.  I hate that.  

Maybe I need a drink and a bath if I had a good bathtub that might be a good solution (lol).  


  1. I'm so sorry that you're so stressed Mel. Packing and stuff will do that to you. I've done that before with our house payment. Now that was a shock when I got that bill. It happens. Well look on the bright side, your kid goes to bed at like 7pm. Mine is still awake (it's almost 1:30am!) Daddy let him take a late nap while I was gone to work and he was ready to go when I got home. Ok, enough about me on YOUR blog, lol!

  2. You make me think of that old commercial about the "unexpected bill" that shows up and they have a guy wearing a tee-shirt that says "Electric bill" on it. Blah. I'm sorry hon.

  3. Thanks ladies. I called today and I can pay $100 now, $150 next week but I have to pay the rest off by the end of the month (EEK!) but I'm going to try to do it.
