My favorite verse:
He said the rain won't leave
And the pain won't ease
And the sun don't wanna shine
And there's something in the bottom of this drink I just got
And it don't look like a worm to me
Yesterday.....we got a call from camp that Sassy got hit in the mouth with a swing (she was pushing another kid, and must have been standing too close). And she broke off half her front tooth. Her beautiful PERMANENT tooth.
Brought her to the dentist who said that it didn't break over the nerve, but it was close. They were able to bond the tooth, and she looks good as new. She said it didn't hurt too much, and she was very brave.
Of course, even with all our medical and dental bills, we are still $338 from our deductible. Most of our bills are co-pays that don't count toward the deductible, and the stuff that does count is all Bossy. The rest of us haven't racked up bills to hit the deductible.
So, we will now owe another $318 to the dentist.
I really do want to cry. Say what you will about how we choose to spend our money....we really can't cut a break. I am having one of those....We are never going to get out of this moments.
I said a long time ago that I wanted to be debt free, minus the house, by my 40th birthday. That is roughly 3 yrs, 9 months. Per this calculator, using rough numbers,
When will you be debt free?
|Your plan summary|
|•||If you pay $1,595.26 a month, it will take you 3 years and 9 months to pay off your credit cards.|
|•||Based on your current combined balance of $64,520.00, you will pay a total of $7,306.57 in interest.|
|Here's what to do first|
|Strategy: Pay as much as your budget allows to the credit card with the highest interest rate, and pay the minimum to your lower rate cards.|
Laid out like that....it seems totally do-able. However, that is assuming no new general debt. And it doesn't account for the new medical debt. And Murphy needs to leave!!!!!!!
Plus, we haven't gotten to the car saga yet....oh, and a few work drama things...because they didn't want to be left out.
I read ALOT of blogs. But there are few that I read that have THIS much happen. We just can't cut a break.
There's A Bug in my Margarita!!!!!
