This sounds very official, and it is…at least at my mother’s house. Today, my mom helped me, as she does every month, to figure out my finances in order to more effectively reduce my debt in a shorter period of time so that the interest charged is less on said debts. As long as my credit cards stay home when I leave the house, there is a minimal amount of shaming that has to be endured around the fifth of every month when we do this. Let’s just say the credit cards “wandered a bit” during December of 2019 and the shaming was appropriate today…in large doses. So December was a good month for the credit card companies and the banks that issued them to me, and I effectively lost the battle with the interest accrual and money owed last month. This month will be better. It has to be. I have $21.94 left in my checking account as of writing checks to cover all of that this morning. It’s a good thing that it takes snail mail a few days to get to its destination. Enough said. Anyway, I’m digging my way out of consumer debt month-by-month, and with every transaction passed up, slowly, but surely. It will take a few years, but I will persevere!
Content Rating PG, for the most part
I try to keep the content of my posts in the PG range (meaning that maybe your 13-year-old should not read it... Just kidding!) - you know, something I could get away with tastefully in the town square without getting lynched, tarred-and-feathered, or hung (and something my mother would NOT wash my mouth out with soap for). As far as what age you have to be to understand some of the subtleties of my humor in writing and/or speaking, well... That may vary. A lot.
