Rollercoastering....

January 28th, 2008 at 07:17 pm



Lately, life seems like one big rollercoaster ride with all the loop-de-loops, sharp turns, slow climbs to the top and sudden plunges to the ground. There are days when I can't wait to get on because it looks like so much fun. I'm looking forward to the ride and all the thrills and chills that I'm excitedly anticipating. Once on, however, I sometimes wish it would hurry up and end. Maybe the highs are too high or the lows are too low or the loop-de-loops are just too crazy but sometimes it just makes me dizzy and I want to get off before I throw up. Some days I'm up for it and some days...well, not so much. Right now, I feel that I'm just in line waiting. And it's a LONG freaking line. Ya know, the three-hours-wait-past-this-point kinda line. That's how I feel about my debt sometimes. I can't wait until that day when I can enjoy the highs and tolerate the lows because I have that safety cushion where worrying about money is the LEAST of my worries. In fact, I can't wait until it's not a worry at all. THAT would be sweet! To actually go into a store and buy something I need for myself or my son and not feel guilty for buying necessities because I'm adding to my debt overload is something I am looking forward to soooo much that I feel like I'm at the end of a long damn line to the most popular rollercoaster in the world and it's been temporarily shut down for maintenance. Since no one wants to lose their place in line we all stay where we are...and we wait.

    Hehe. My life is a grinding crawl right now. But I don't mind. Better than a *cough* roller coaster ride. Big Grin Well, I hope things settle down for you soon.

    ((hugs)) I know the feeling!...ugh!...I look at my balances and I wish I could just say "a-la-ka-zam" and make them go away...then again, they didn't just appear, so ... Frown

    *Hugs* to both of you! While I do agree that a slow crawl is a nice change from a wild, twister ride sometimes it would be nice to leapfrog ahead a few paces when it comes to debt resolution. Ugh! And you are SOOO right, miclason, about not appearing overnight. Reminds me of how closely related losing weight and debt are. It's funny how it takes 3,000 calories to gain a pound and about 6,000 calories to lose one (or so I have heard) and interesting how the same can be said for debt as well. It may have cost 3,000 to go into debt but you can be sure it will take more than 3,000 to get out of it when you figure in all the interest costs, etc. I cannot wait until the day that I can say I'm 100% debt free! How sweet that day will be for ALL of us! Smile

    Oh goodie! You're back!
    But aren't rollercoasters fun? I love the ups and downs of life. Right now I feel like I am on a wooden coaster, all bumpy, providing whiplash!
    The debt seems to be going up and not down...but I can see the end of the ride and I can't wait to get off!
    Hang in there my friend! I love you!

    Well, if the ex would keep a job it sure would help on child support payments...lol! You know, Joe, my dear. This will be his 3rd job since our divorce 4 years ago and possibly his 4th if he quits this one for another one that pays more. I swear he gives me more gray hairs than his son does. Frown

    Rollercoasters ARE fun, sometimes. It just depends on the rollercoaster and whether I feel good or not myself when I get on them. Smile
    I love you, too, my dearest friend! Smile

    Joe's never been good at staying at or keeping a job. It's that nasty temper of his!

    At least you're not still married to him!

    I am headed to FL tomorrow. Big convention...I am an attendee and not the planner.

    I love ya!

    Don't I know it! I'm sooooo very happy to be free! I'm not sure right now if I even want a boyfriend. Too much trouble sometimes. Much less stress being on your own.

    Ooooo, Florida! I'm so jealous! I hope you had a blast while you were there, sweetie, unless you still ARE down there. If that's the case, I hope you are STILL having a blast.

    I love you, too, my dearest friend! Smile
