Finding Money...

Dh is going over to a local RV resort today to apply for a part-time (only 5 hours/week) night watchman job. He called them yesterday and it sounded promising enough that he is hopeful on it. It would be sitting in the little box and checking ID's, then driving the grounds in a golf cart.

I have an appointment with a woman tomorrow night to make a bridesmaid's dress. This would be for a Sept wedding, so it's coming up fast - but that would be fun.

I also got 3 things posted on ebay, hopefully with more to go on tonight.

I've been making more stuff to try to post, either on ebay or on http://www.etsy.com . Possibly at the crafters' mall they opened here in town.

And dh is looking at pen & ink drawings to post on etsy, too.

So...we're trying to find money. With the summer school check and the paycheck next week, we'll get back on top of things. With the curriculum writing check, hopefully we can put more back into savings to get that back up, and get some money put aside for Christmas. Then, the ebay money plus any extra can go to get the fridge paid off first (after the end of Nov, if there's any left, it goes back to the first day we bought the fridge and puts interest at 25% back on - we aren't going to let that happen). We owe less than $200 on it, so that shouldn't be too bad. In a worst case scenario, we can use summer school check or curriculum money to pay it off.

I'm feeling a little better about it. I'd feel much better if we had more in savings, but that's my own stupid fault.

I've been watching Oprah's Debt Diet reruns, and taping them for dh. We aren't in situations like that, but we have our own spending issues. Maybe all of this will help.
