I got my money, I got my money. :)
My tenant gave me December, January and February rent today. She was just a little behind. Her tax money finally came through and she was very happy to be caught up. She even brought me chocolate as a thank you for waiting. I am glad that there are still people out there who appreciate help instead of taking advantage of others who are trying to help them.
This means that I can make another mortgage payment very soon. I can't do it yet because I won't have my contribution until payday. My bank accounts are pretty low right now and I have a $1,000 credit card bill due at the end of the month as well as a regular mortgage payment so I will wait a little while.
I am so happy that it worked out. I don't mind helping people as long as it is actually helping and I am glad that I am in a position to help. If I wasn't able to pay the mortgage on my own I wouldn't have been able to wait so long. Soon I won't have a mortgage at all. I will need to save enough money so that I am not dependent on that rent money every month. Of course I expect it to be paid every month but I don't want my tenants problems to ever put me in a financial bind.
