Where in the world have I been?

May 20th, 2010 at 04:50 pm

Nowhere. Just somewhat stressed, trying to adjust to changes in my job and at home. The kid is doing ok--much better in fact--meds are working and the psychologists are very positive after they talk with him each time. He didn't do so well this last semester at school, when it comes to grades, but he gave it his best shot by attempting to go to class.
Appreciate everyone's kind comments on my previous post back in March.

Anyway, my energy is a little drained. I may be dealing with a little depression, but I'm not willing to go down for the count, so I keep getting up to go to work, I keep exercising, I keep praying, I keep making some attempt to do something worthwhile and energizing. The kid has been very talkative as of late, so we've had some really interesting talks about "What's life all about?"

I've fallen a little behind in my budget and record keeping, but intend to do some work this month. The insurance did kick in for the hospital bill that was originally $7,000--my portion is $750 (yay me!). The other good news is that I was expecting an $800 tax refund but recieved a $1400 tax refund. (yay me!) I didn't include a credit and IRS re-calculated it for me. I feel like I should send them a thank you card. Who knew?

I'm glad I was able to muster the interest and energy to check out Saving Advice blogs and update my sidebar a little. I feel better already. I've fallen behind, but feel energized now to re-focus. I have a very long (loooooooong) list of things to do, and very little motivation. But we'll see. Happy saving!!

    Good to hear from you again & welcome back! Don't face your troubles all alone. Let people help you out, including the IRS. Smile

    Understandable that a little depression could be involved. The IRS helped me out one year, too. Luckily in our favor as well!

    Take care and keep checking in.

    That is great news, and I'm so glad that your son's treatment leads to him making positive strides. I think that it can't be too surprising that you might feel down during such upheaval, but do think about the good things that you have accomplished! That insurance bill being slashed, good news on the tax return, etc. You are doing something right!
