I'll Bring You Down When You Are Up

Oh such is life. Ups and Downs. One minute you feel great, the next, uhm... not so much.

So I got a letter from my student loans telling me my deferment was up this month and could you please send us $150? Well... I don't have it. So I called them up and asked... am I eligible for another deferment? And I am! Hurray! Submitted the request on line and I have another 6 months, student loan free. Happy dance!! Now I don't have to scramble for that extra $150 this month!

Or so I thought.

Our phone company, with whom I parted ways last year, stopped sending me bills. I don't know if it's because I stopped paying them or if they just forgot about me or whatever. I owed $280 and paid off half of it in April. Then I decided that was stupid. They hadn't sent us a bill since January 2011. I decided not to pay any more until I got a notice it went to collections..... Fast forward three months... and yep! I got the letter today....

It went to collections. Can you please pay us $150?

Hahahaha..... oh karma.

But the difference here is... I only have to scramble to find the extra money this month, instead of every month.

Isn't it funny how life works out? Instead of having to pay an extra $300 this month, I'm still left with the extra $150 I had to originally come up with.

No worries though. Even if I don't get it paid before the first, it'll be paid by mid-August.
