Ok. So I'm there.

I knew it was too good to last. But hey, I played the patience game much longer than I ever have before.

But knowing you are down to your last two paychecks? Its a killer.  Especially when you know that even if you are lucky enough to pay all the bills....there's nothing left for food.  But hey, even that is better than not having ANY money come in. Right?

It also makes you stop and think about how most of us are just about 2 paychecks away from losing everything.  I mean really.  We could last about a month before we scraped the bottom of the checking/savings account.  That's it.  And I'm betting we are better off than half the people I know.  Things that make you go hmmmmm.

So as you can see, I have no news for anyone.  Which is why I haven't been posting .  I'm getting grouchy.  And the migraines.....oh the migraines.  And I hate my new migraine meds...they make my head burn.  And my stomach.  But they do kill the migraine after a nap.

And the desktop computer just died.  For real. No hope.  But we all laptops so I'm not even going to replace it. Makes my desk a whole lot bigger thank you!

And I got nothin else.

Somebody entertain me with some fun life stories. Please.


  1. Awww Autumn, I'm so sorry.

    Hubby and I were just talking today because he retires in a year and we are already freaking out, when you sit down and do the math, it's so scary. I don't know how I'm going to make it when he gets out, and just like you we have taken steps for it and are currently doing all we can to prepare but Yikes, it's scary.

    Hang in there, lots of hugs and I hope your migraines go away.

  2. Don't have any spectacular life stories to tell and entertain you - my life is rather uneventful (which is good). Just wanted to say I was thinking about you and I love you! Hang in there.

  3. What really complicates things when you retire is you usually move away from where you are it takes away the ability to prepare by stocking up on say foods and stuff that could make the rough times easier. You have no idea what its like right now that I'm emptying my pantry to move and its almost bare (the freezer is already emptied and unplugged) and we have one paycheck left with no job. I'd feel so much better if I at least had food reserves to fall back on. But I understand the military hits you hard on over weight limits that final move they do for you. I know we are over already...dont want to add thousands to move food.
