Hello 2019

Happy New Year everyone.   We’ve been busy here.  DH’s recovery has been a bit difficult, but he’s on his feet, and making progress every day.  I hate to see him in pain, and I know he’s frustrated by it as well.

We have yet to receive any short term disability paychecks.  And no one can seem to give us an answer on when we’ll be receiving one.  The last work paycheck was painfully short.  They had deleted DH from the system 7 days before he was set to leave.  HR was suppose to submit his hours, but didn’t.  I have our bills paid up until the 18th right now.  I have a little bit in savings to tide us over, but we really need a check soon!

Also my renter needs to pay!!  $1600 behind right now.  😦  I can’t carry on making the payments for that house much longer if they don’t pay up.

But even with all the financial stress, I’m in good spirits.  Perhaps the zoloft is finally kicking in? lol.  I’m staying sane and doing well selling items locally, I’ll have a post about that soon.  I’m thankful to have several friends bring our family dinner over the last couple of weeks too.

It sucks, but we’re surviving.  🙂

    Your attitude is fantastic and I think it’s amazing how you are managing to roll with the punches. You are doing a great job of minding your 4 walls. I really think you should consider kicking out the renter even if they are family. They sound like trouble, late with rent, causing damage etc. Additionally selling the house will give you some breathing room and it currently seems more hassle then it’s worth to keep it.

    Oh no! I hope HR fixes that quickly.
    And sounds like you need to renters (agree even if family) because it’s bringing your house down.
    Jillian from Montana Money Adventures did a guest post at MR (https://www.millennial-revolution.com/freedom/how-to-become-fi-with-6-kids/) – I really enjoyed her part about the family’s annual Quit List – though you might like.

    I hope you are able to get the renters to pay up soon!

    Glad to hear your hubby is on the mend. I was just thinking about your job situation. Have you ever checked out Shipt.com? I was reading about it in a Dave Ramsey I’m part of. If it is in your area, it might be worth looking into.

    I’m annoyed with your renter on your behalf! It’s just wrong to take advantage that way. Does s/he have a lease? If so, does it expire soon?

    We rent out a small house in another state, and the lease specifies that if the rent is three months delinquent, the lease is officially broken, allowing us to begin eviction proceedings.

    I understand your renter is a close family member, but surely that means s/he knows you have a mortgage that the rent is needed for, not to mention that you’re trying to handle the financial impact of a child with special medical needs and a (temporarily) disabled husband. No one who cares about would insist you keep a tenant who could cost you your house.
