I leave for England next Sunday.  One week to go!  I'm both excited and nervous.

Money is still really, really tight.  Even though I called my bank and talked to them about my mortgage, and how I'm having trouble right now, I'm still getting nasty "Pay now or else!" letters.

For the record, I was having trouble before buying the tickets for England.  I've been having trouble ever since I purchased the house.  Everyone says the first few years are always the hardest, but I think it's just that my job doesn't pay me enough for my positiion and that I have too many expenses.  I think when I get back I'm going to have to get a second job again.  I've been looking for a new job, but it has to pay me equivilent or more than what I make now, and those are proving harder to find.

I really am looking forward to seeing my sister, but I'm also anxious becuase I just know she's going to be harping on me about finances.  I'm trying not to let that dampen my vacation.  I want to have fun!  There are a lot of things we can do that don't cost money.  I guess I'm just frustrated.

So, in that spirit, I'm scrapping all my diginity and posting the link to my GoFund me one more time.  I know a lot of people aren't able to give, so if anyone could pass the link around?  It's honestly more about having money to pay the bills when I get back than the trip itself now.  


Not really a whole lot else to report.  I haven't been able to go out and do anything becuase I've been saving literally every dime and penny for this trip.  But that's all right.  I have cable, and I've been watching a lot of movies.

My computer is a little off, but I'm hoping it just needs to have the dust shaken out of it for it to work properly again.  Fingers crossed.

Take care, everyone!

England! One of these years, I wish. My sister gets to travel to lots of countries for her research and conferences (ethnomusicology), but I've only even been out of the country once, and that was when I was MUCH younger and my parents were taking us to Spain and Italy.

I get the crisis, financially, though. We're having to deal with mortgage and bank right now - there's some state help for those of us who are struggling (in our case due to my husband's job loss), so we're currently signing up for some help. Hate it. Wish I could donate, but all I can send is virtual hugs and a request for some pics so I can travel vicariously through you? :)
