Finally, I checked the account and it is back to normal, DP's car payment cleared, my car payment cleared yesterday, I paid the cable, and paid the car insurance.
I paid $65.00 down on the one payday loan and the one loan should be paid of and a $40.00 credit card payment, So I am down to 2 3/4 loans. As tempting as it was to call that one place when I was all stressed out, I held my own and just kept telling myself no no no. The one loan automatically took 65.00 towards the principal this pay which was good, because I was teetering on making a paydown amount, but I wanted to make sure everything in the account was what was suppose to be there. So instead of me himhalling around, the decision was made for me by an automatic paydown so its good and bad I guess. Bad because I wasn't expecting it the budgetting of my paycheck and also the fact that I have 170.00 to last me till next Thursday. DP's check gets deposited every Thursday, but most of her paycheck next week goes towards the Mortg that is paid at the end of the month, so *shrugs*. I guess I gotta start somewheres right.

All I'm thankful for is that the account is back to normal, and I was able to pay 6 things this pay and my lil train is starting to chug. Hopefully tomorrow when we go to Delaware Park with my parents we'll be lucky, cuz lord know I need luck to tap me on the shoulder that’s for sure.

I wont need much as for the groceries this week, so I might just pick up some more boneless chicken, because we have 2 roasts, 1 pork roast, hotdogs, pasta, salmon as main dishes stocked up, plus I have some split chicken breasts in the freezer as well. We're fine on potatoes, veggies and lunchmeat. I'll probably just have to stock up on soups for lunch and maybe I'll get some hamburger, so that should hold us till next week at least.

I know most people do not like paying bills, but I'm the type of personality that gets satisfaction out of paying things, even if it is just a lil chunk here and there, and there is not much left over, at least things are getting paid. So for next pay we will do the mortgage, and electric and possible pay down some more of those dumb dumb dumb pay day loans that I vow to never never never do again!!!

I just want to give a shout out to my girls...Thank you for reading my rambles and all the support that you have all given me during these past 2 very hard weeks. Love ya!!
