WEDNESDAY NIGHT, APRIL 2, 2008

Every heart has its secret sorrows, which the world knows not;
And often times we call a man cold when he is only sad. Henry Wadsworth Longfellow
.
I have written a bit about how my financial situation has changed in the past year and how I am coping. Today I took some steps to shore things up. I cancelled some credit cards I have had for eons. I cancelled my American Express card. This card has turned out to be one of my worst companions. I could not leave home without it. (hee hee) I used it a lot at the $300.00 store, Costco. I cancelled several others. I now have one department store, 2 gas cards, 1 Visa Card, and a Care Car Card that I get 90 days same as cash for my car servicing. I think this will help me keep my spending in check with my income. I'm also glad that I did this before I got in trouble. I've been there before and I have no desire to go there again.
.
Today I am grateful for:
.
God, my higher power.
My Sobriety.
Dolly, my Schnauzer.
My sponsor.
Not having a panic attack as I cut up my cards.
Not having an anxiety attack as I called the creditors and cancelled my cards.
The faith that I will survive without plastic.
My upcoming visit with Rosalie, my sister. Yay.
.
Y'all be pretty now, ya heah.

The average American has over ten grand in credit card debt. I am glad to not be average (in that sense). On the other hand I am a garden variety drunk. So there.

Does that mean that Scott used to pass out in people's gardens?

Good discipline with the credit cards, mister!
