Did I wander into the wrong thread? Isn't this Whiners Anonymous?

We've almost filled one page already, and there have been 120 viewers. WA 16 had a whopping 2,940 viewers! Just imagine if everyone who viewed also posted! Way too many whines to contemplate!

Hmmmph!!

Think maybe this is why my mail's been so slow lately...

Thank goodness I'm not mailing any Christmas packages this year...




Good Morning Whiner's

AFter I pay the rent I have only $350 left over to pay bills with. In the last two days I've paid $237 on my enormous cell bill (due to my friend living here and going way over her minutes and texting allowance) and have next to nothing left to pay my other bills. If she ever finds work she'll be paying me off with her first months wages.

I am worried sick I'll be getting shut off notices and not have any money to pay them. I am beside myself with worry and don't know how I'll make it to the end of the month.

Hi Least,

I totally understand that worry. However, I'm having a worry free day so here ya go.

Have you contacted your utilities? I am on a budget plan with my electric company (for low income people), I know the gas company also has a budget plan. Call the other creditors and let them know your situation.

I went to social services in town and applied for fuel assistance. I also was qualified for things likes food stamps, health insurance, etc.

It is always scary for me to call these folks and let them know what's going on...it's one of my biggest fears..but I just keep trying to do the next right thing even though it's hard, and it usually works out.

Also, when I'm in a good place spiritually..if I'm praying alot and trying to stay in the day...I don't have to worry.

Hang in there!

PS: Folks dont' die from not having a cell phone. Get rid of em or sit that person down and tell them that you will no longer be paying for hers.

Blizzard conditions today and I had to run errands....that's not my whine.

Plow guy didn't show up yet.....that's not my whine either.

What then, you ask?

They moved the stinkin' catfood AGAIN!! Now it's on Aisle 7!!! Now if they are going to move it at all, could they not have moved it back to Aisle 6 where it has always been and where it belongs?

I think they are doing this on purpose, just to annoy the obsessive/compulsive Queen of Whines

Had my first ever drinking dream. I DO NOT LIKE waking up feeling ashamed and thinking I'll have to start all over! I've been rather stressed the last couple days, maybe that's why.

Oh well... such is life... At least I was able (with RK's instructions) to post a pix of my doggies in their winter coats. The green coat looks rather like a cover for a toaster! It's in the July thread, if anyone wants to see them in their coats.

My non-whine for today is that my mom (bless her heart) gave me enough money to pay my three other bills. So I'm ok for this month at least.

You mean when we send you and you don't wrap your arms around your monitor and transport your mind into the screen and this room where we all are?

Now here comes the rest of the group now :ghug
