Freak Out Day Diffused

I scheduled Freak Day in because I was melting down and a close friend of mine said to give it 4 more days before I completely freak out. So, being that I'm the compulsive list maker, number cruncher type, I scheduled it on my calendar. It did help to put off my melt down so I could still remain a functioning entity. Brains tend to shut down when they are in panic mode.

My financial situation has been taking a downward slide for quite some time. I'm a wiz at living off of next to nothing and being creative to make ends meet but being unable to work for this length of time has taken it's toll. I told another long time friend of mine that my ship was sinking. She said, it's this ship that is sinking, not the better one around the corner.

I'm a firm believer that there is a solution to every problem, we just may not have found the right answer yet. I know it's hard to say that knowing I may not have a place to live in a few weeks, but I still know it's true. Keeping my sanity those few days longer has helped me be able to keep digging and exploring possibilities. I think things are looking up.

I will make it happen.

And I accept Lynne's (Autonomous Artisans) challenge for No Spend January! My next post is going to be about how I'm managing to do that. Bring it on!

Oh well you have beaten me already then as I went food shopping a couple of days ago and spent £35... unless food bills don't come into it.

I've purchased nothing but food and paid a bill. I still need to pay my council tax at £112 for the month, but don't have it, so they will have to wait or threaten me with a court case.

Oh and I will have to pay for the fridge/freezer when it gets here. The old one has died.

Oh dear, I think you are going to beat me hands down

Good grief! You need a new fridge/freezer! I'd give you mine if you weren't across the ocean. Someone left me with a mini fridge and an apartment sized freezer. People like to give me TV's too which makes no sense because I've only recently had cable. That and I hate TV.

Hey,

I'm experiencing something similar. I have this weird feeling that when your going down it's a great time to give.

Send me your address to charming_mary@hotmail.com and I'll send you a few bucks.

Hell, I sent money to save a cow once. I can send money to a girl with blue hair. hee hee
