I got the mail today and found another bill that I forgot about...the mobile home tax. I always forget that one. Luckily, it is in my budget so the money is there, or at least it is supposed to be there. It is only $87 so not that big of a drain. I also got a bill from one of the doctor's offices that had billed me before and then told me not to pay until the insurance processed the claim. I was hoping the doctor would accept the insurance payment as paid in full but no. They want $109 from me. Lovely. I don't have that budgeted and I still owe myself $700 from other bills. I am beginning to think I am either going to have to not go visit my family for the holidays or I am going to have to ADD ANOTHER MONTH on the mortgage plan. NOOOOO!!!
Maybe, when the weather finally cools off (88 degrees forecast for Monday) I will find something to sell in my back rooms full of stuff that will pay for my plane tickets. I can't think of anything off hand that would be worth that much. Maybe lots of little things will add up to a big amount. I would usually choose delayed gratification and put off travel but when it comes to visiting family I think seize the day is the right approach.
