I've decided that being human is incredibly annoying. Having to maintain your body can get wonderfully expensive.
I've been joyfully blessed with an eye infection that required a $125 trip to the eye doctor, which will be followed by another $200 odd next week when I go in for a follow up and pay for new contact lenses. These are those necessary random expenses that drive me crazy because they put me even further behind.
Because this is a short month and October 1st is a Friday, I've not made out as well I was hoping for this month.
The flip side of this is that I'm due five paychecks in October, which is theoretically an extra $600 just from my current gig. This is good and promising and should help. I'm feeling though my dream of breaking even by the end of the year might not come to fruition though.
I might be able to do more extra project work in October once I shift to evening work, but I don't feel as though I should be banking on it. I'm also yet to find out how well I'll make out on my part time admin job and whether I will be paid before or after the last of the month.
I'm very strict about that dividing line. If the calendar flips, then I shift to that months budget regardless.
I just really really hope that I can do a little better before my next round of medical and icky expenses in November. Hate being human.
