Depressed Beyond Words

Today’s post feels embarrassing and humiliating. I want to be successful and make great strides in our debt reduction. I don’t want to keep going further into debt.

But maintaining my positive outlook, I have to remind myself that the choices we made last year were for a reason. Something happened that had to happen, we incurred debt, and didn’t pay enough income taxes. All year long I knew it was going to be a problem, but I didn’t take action. Now we will pay for that mistake.

I finally played around with that income tax calculator that I posted about months ago. I was right, we will owe about $2000 in income taxes. Money we don’t have at the moment. I don’t even want to know what we’ll owe the state.

So on with the positive thinking:

  1. Get our income taxes done, make the payment so we can get in line for that tax relief check. That will help pay some of the $2000.
  2. Our total debt including our mortgage is only ~$65K. That’s really not too bad.
  3. So far Mr. A’s business is bringing in steady money.
  4. He still has one more full paycheck from his last job.

I guess that’s all I can think of for now.

  1. I know how hard it is to have to take a backwards step when you’re trying SO HARD to move forward, but I’m so proud of your determination to have a great attitude. You’re going to be great! You can do it!


  2. Moneydummy, thank you for the compliment and your kind words of encouragement. It helps to know I’m not the only one that takes a step forward and two backward sometimes. Warm wishes, Mrs. A
