I Feel Like I Keep Getting Knocked Down

Just when I start feeling optimistic about our debt, thinking we are finally making some progress, something happens that totally blows me out of the water.

Like the newest huge chunk of debt, the air conditioning unit having to be replaced. I guess if things continue with Mr. A’s business like they have been, going along pretty steadily, and we are able to make a $500 dent each month, then it should only be four months until we are back to where we are now.

I have to just keep on keeping on, having faith that we will persevere.

It doesn’t help that I have so little energy. I remember being this way last summer, with my energy so low that I felt concerned about myself.

And it doesn’t help that Mr. A has come up against his first customer who is actively attempting to rip us off.  Thankfully Mr. A felt suspicious about him and had him pay most of the money up front.  The guy refused to pay the remainder of the balance due, and has now demanded to have some of the original money refunded.  If we were to refund the amount he is asking, then he will be getting the job done for the price of materials alone – we have produced receipts to show him the amount paid for the materials and have told him there is no way we are going to refund him any money rather he had better pay up or we’ll be taking him to small claims court at our lawyer’s suggestion. I think he’s a bit of a nutcase.

This has been very stressful to say the least, and even more draining of my energy. I need a long vacation.

    WOW. I’ve visited Tucson a couple of times and I thought it was the hottest place on earth. Even though WV doesn’t get as hot as Arizona, I, too, have those energy lags. I finally figured out it was because my salt intake wasn’t high enough to keep up with the salt loss from sweating. I don’t eat processed food, and real food doesn’t have enough salt to keep you going when you sweat too much. Maybe that’s what going on with you, too? I know you eat lots of produce.

    Laura, I try to avoid processed foods, too, but I am also a big salt hound – people always notice and comment about my use of salt. I also try to avoid chemically produced salt, opting for sea salt whenever possible (I always use it at home). Actually a characteristic of adrenal fatigue is craving for salt. I have written before about my suspicions that I am suffering from adrenal fatigue in this post. Also, if you are interested, search this page for the subtitle, “Adrenal Fatigue and Craving for Salt“. Good thought though, thank you for the reminder. Thanks for visiting and commenting!

    I check your site each day. As I, too, have been digging my way out of debt, I find your words helpful. I enjoy your writing style and the similarities in how we eat. I love that you have written about edible weeds!!

    Hi Laura, thank you being a daily visitor and thank you for your compliments and words of encouragement! My garden is so dried out, but the purslane is coming up like there’s no tomorrow! I’m thinking about making up another batch of Weed Soup. Thanks for visiting and commenting!
