option "C"

I didn't even think that there would/could be an option C to the situation below. There was...and it happened. We got paid on Friday. For that weeks work. All of my back-ordered paychecks are still unpaid. This paycheck was given to us in cash (no chance for THAT to bounce) so I am able to do a little triage on my bills. Juggle this here, that there, and hold off on this bill till later. Supposedly, we are to get everything caught up on Monday, Tuesday at the latest. Which means that all my bills, except rent, will be paid on time. Rent (depending on if we get paid cash or check) might end up a couple of days late. Talked to housing, and they are cool with that...no late fee assessed unless it is like a week past the grace period.

In other words, I have been able to perform some surgery, but there is still blood in the water and the sharks are still circling.

I didn't read the blog below but it sounds like things worked out just in time. We have had so many times like that, things still are the best but it has worked for the moment. I will be in prayer for you on this! BTW, I liked your idea of getting the video, unfortunately I didn't read that until after. I may still check. :)

I'm still praying.

Hang in there!

It seems like God often puts us in places we do not choose to be in, as you well know. Sigh.

thanks for the prayers everybody. I have really been able to feel them. The money situation is now over the hump...even though my boss still owes me almost $700. All bills are paid, and I got an insurance rebate check in the mail today for $200. Go God.

I'm so glad that God came through. He provides.

Thanks for letting us see into your walk of faith. I will still be praying that everything else gets paid.

Triage on your bills?! That's funny! Can I borrow that ;-)?

Glad things are smoothing out.

Supermom - feel free to use that line. I was rather proud of myself for coming up with it, normally my eloqution is not near that witty.
