I’m not worried by my current situation. Worrying isn’t something a Christian should do anyways, and I firmly believe that instead of worrying, about a situation, one should do what he or she can to get the situation under control again. That’s exactly what I am doing and have done to take back control over my situation, which isn’t as bad as I thought it was going to be.
I can not afford to pay my cable bill this month, and if I don’t pay it by the twentieth, I’ll lose my triple-play (cable, internet, and telephone) package from the local cable company. Sounds bad right? I don’t watch tv, and I have phone service though my phone company anyways (needed it for my all-in-one), so I just added internet service to my phone bill, and it will be installed on Thursday, and I lose the cable stuff Friday (or I may just take it back to them myself Thursday afternoon). I save the $107 a month I was paying for the triple-play package, and my phone bill only will jump by $47 (to around $80) for the next six months, after that it’ll be about a hundred dollars or so a month. I don’t watch TV that much, so that’s no big loss to me in the long run. The twenty dollars I will be saving in my budget can be either saved or put towards another part of my budget. Thus in the long run, I come out ahead, even without any help!
I might have to work on Sunday now more often than not, but that’s a short term thing I have to put up with until I can either find another job where I can have Sundays and Thursday evenings off, or my company makes enough money so that it can afford to pay my salary each month at a big enough rate I can afford to go restricted at Superstore (about a thousand a month after deductions or about $1,400 before). Nothing’s perfect, so I’m confident something good will happen soon in this area of my life.
Going to take off and get some rest, so take care!
