I'm pissed. Pissed I'm not getting the money I was promised YESTERDAY and pissed that I have received no official notice of this fact. $210 would go a long way right now. Not to mention I have another three months of waiting for the COLA to kick in....losing out on about $180.
And okay, I know that this rule was not created by my office and the information I got yesterday was no one's fault here, I still reserve the right to be pissed. I need to make up the difference in my wedding budget and that money was going to put me over the edge. Now I'm just going to have to find another way.
Rant over. Here's my budget for the next two weeks, throwing a little extra at the wedding account to make up for the last pay period.
Starting Balance = 1246
Wedding - 500
Defaulted Student Loan - 260
Nice Collection Agency - 125
Laptop - 75
Groceries - 100
Camping - 50
Misc./Dry Cleaning - 86
And that's how the cookie crumbles. We're going camping with some friends next weekend and I'm very excited for a little get away that doesn't involve seeing either set of our parents. I'm still down about $200 in the wedding budget so I'm going to have to figure out a way to make it up next month. Stay tuned!
