Itching for time to pass

August 9th, 2012 at 10:17 am

I remember when paydays just could not come soon enough for me; I was always scraping the bottom of the barrel (i.e., my credit cards and line of credit) waiting for a cash infusion. Now, it doesn't really affect me as much; I have plenty of money for the things I need, and I don't spend on wants if I don't have money budgeted for them.

However, I'm really looking forward to Aug. 15, much more than usual. First, to have our day in court and hopefully complete the adoption process. Second, AS's raise will be reflected in her Aug. 15 paycheck, so one of our financial unknowns will be revealed.

I hope the adoption goes through and is effective immediately, so I can change the healthcare and know what MY paycheck will look like by the Aug. 31 paycheck!

We haven't gotten any new medical bills recently, which is another of our financial variables. I still think there's a chance we'll get more bills from the labor & delivery, or for NT's recent surgery. Still, every day that passes without a new bill makes it a bit less likely. If we don't get anything by the end of the year, I think we'll be safe. But that's nearly 5 months from now!

NT's tuition should be available end of this month or beginning of September. Our notification about our mortgage should also come at the beginning of September (actual adjustment, if any, will happen Nov. 1). OK, I'm just impatient for the next month to pass! I shouldn't feel that way because it's summer in Minnesota and warm weather is to be treasured, but I can't help it!

    My experience has been that medical bills trickle in for a long time, from all kinds of unexpected places, after a surgery. I got one bill more than a year later!

    Best of luck on the adoption process!

    Fingers crossed on the adoption. I hope Aug 15th is a fabulous day for you!

    I don't blame you for wanting to get to the adoption quickly. And to get everything settled financially so you can take the next steps for budgeting.

    That is one of my biggest complaints about surgery billing procedures, and the variances of insurance coverage in the States. There are so many different departments adding their fees to the bill, that it leads to months and months of uncertainty about the total cost.
