Yep, went and had another talk with the BOA rep, and we are now getting the supervisor involved as opposed to the Claim Department to get my $105 OD charges reversed which were obviously a result of the fraudulent activity, so tomorrow hopefully it will be better news.
We have an oil delivery scheduled for tomorrow so that will fill up the tank, needed to borrow some money from mom to get this taken care of, but sometimes you gotta do what you gotta do. We paid DP's car payment yesterday, and my car payment is a lil late but not late enough to get reported to credit agency, so that is scheduled to come out of the account on Thursday; cable bill and car insurance will be paid out of this pay, and hopefully the money will be back in the account and there will be a $100.00 cushion that I will transfer over to the savings to put toward the Mtg that needs to be paid at the end of the month. I’m slowly seeing some lil progress, and that is fine as long as I'm climbing the hill and not crashing down on the other side. My head has been killing me today because good ole PMS came knocking at my door on Saturday so yay for me!.

I was able to make the home made fabric softener sponges for the wash, and I absolutely love it. I can't get over how soft that sponge makes the clothing. I did alternate back and forth using the leftover dryer sheets that I still have but that only produced static cling, but when I put in the sponge it took the static away. So I have it marked on the calendar when I made the softener, to see how long this lasts. I am having a hard time finding borax and washing soda, because I am dying to make the detergent. I have a big left over Gain Detergent bottle that I want to put the new solution into but I just need to get the main ingredients. So maybe I'll look for that stuff this weekend, I also have my mom on a lookout for the borax as well because our Walmart did not have it, so hopefully luck will be on my side on that one. I just keep praying that things will get a little better each day, and I think all the thinking and spinning of the wheels in my head is what is giving me this major headache, so hopefully things will subside and my pond will fill back up with water!

    I hope all goes well and you get your $105 back. You are holding your own which is a great thing. Your positive attitude will pull you through. Will be thinking about you.

    Keep your chin up! I've seen Borax at the local Target. Haven't yet had the gumption to make homemade laundry stuff.
