At the end of May I hurt my back and my neck. Nothing major thank goodness, but enough to send me to the doctor a few times, to physical therapy and to the massage therapist. Cost to me, about $1000. One of the pets decided it would be fun to break it's leg. Seriously, the pet broke his leg. Cost to the vet for X rays, casting, meds, $500. I'm lucky that the dog did not need orthopedic surgery. My primary vet (that I am slowly losing confidence in) sent me to a specialist muttering something about pins and screws. I was having night sweats, surgery would have been a around $1,000. The specialist told me the dog could get by on a cast and lots of crate rest. Where did this money come from. My now depleted E fund.
What happens next, my boss holds a meeting to tell the staff that the business will be changing, one partner leaving, and everyone's hours cut, mine included. Actually, as I posted earlier, the office is on the brink of shutting down unless plans, B, C, D somehow come to fruition.
I knew there was a reason I never put that application in for the FHA loan.
The good news of the past month.
I have pretty much recovered from my neck and back issue, the dogs leg has healed, and while I have no
E-fund anymore, I am at least current on all my financial obligations.
I still want to spend most of my free time huddled under the pillows watching Grey's Anatomy re-runs.
