No. of Recommendations: 4
I've been working hard at paying down all the bills as fast as possible & at not charging anything I can't pay off immediately & then it all seems to hit at once. Garbage disposal broke....got a handyman a friend recommended who replaced it for $150. Kids had dental appointments $319, plus 2 cavities, sealants needed with an estimate of $890 for the next visit in Nov, plus one kid needs to go to an Endodontist & who knows what that'll cost. Legally the X is responsible for these bills & is suuposed to reimburse me, but at this point he owes me several thousand. I have one child who sees a speech therapist every 2 weeks for $60, one who has depression who sees a therapist at $90 a week, one who's medication cost me $290. It sure makes it hard to get those bills paid off. I refinanced the house last month so with no payment due this month, had planned to make a big dent in the credit cards, but now it won't happen :(
