progress in saving for the move:
1. husband made enough cash to pay for hitch, trailer, and gas money.
...and got stiffed. pretty much all hope of seeing a penny of that is gone. that's a major flaw in cash-paying jobs...
2. i got reimbursement for travel i paid for outright. this is going toward the move.
still have this, at least
3. we are waiting on reimbursement for medical we have paid outright. also going toward the move.
haven't seen this yet... and will be going to pay uninsured cost of DH's meds this month. (who would have guessed a generic could cost $150?!!!)
4. my teaching assistant pay hasn't come through yet, but i'm hoping that will also come in time to move.
nope. i have no idea when i will see this. the frustrating part is that my job duties ended in MAY, and almost 4 months later i'm still waiting for payment. ugh.
this leaves us about $300 shy of paying for the move outright, as we stand right now.
we currently have $650 on the credit card, and we haven't even paid for the moving service yet >:(
my last graduate school stipend check is deposited on tuesday, and then i go 5 weeks until the next pay day. there is a slight rent increase for the new apartment, 5 weeks rent are due on lease signing tuesday (last week of august, then all of september). i will be writing a check for about $200 more. this is going to be a rough month.
