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.
