From The Desk of Liz Ensley:
Life intrudes already. I'm up to 506 2ords. Yes, I know, that's a pathetic total, for the third day. Unfortunately (well, no, not really, but... lol), I am also a parental unit, and my budget's way off, so I have to spend a bit of time figuring that out, too.
Funny thing is, my sister paid the rent for me, a year in advance, and I'm paying her back--but they just reduced our rent by around $150 since Terror's not employed now, but that extra will not be refunded, though it may be credited in the following year's total. It doesn't actually do us a whole Hell of a lot of good now, so I'm figuring the household budget on a string and a hope--and a couple of overdue bills.
The 'net has to stay, the TV has to stay, and the electric has to be paid, so we might end up giving up phone service for now. Much as it's convenient and all, much as we really, really need it, it's not an absolute essential in the greater scheme of things, especially when the phone itself is dying.
