Feeling helpless

September 24th, 2017 at 12:39 am

We are going on day #5 of no communication with my brother in Puerto Rico. By now, you probably heard or seen the devastation of Hurricane Maria in the island. I just need to know that they are okay.

Please pray for my family in Puerto Rico as they are being pummeled by another Cat 5 hurricane. I'm super worried. Frown

Hello! Thank God I survived the fist full week of school (work). It is terribly exhausting after two months of a lazy summer. Believe me, I know how blessed I am to have those months to do what I want.

Finances have been a bit chaotic due to my non-nonchalant attitude. It's time to take the reigns again! On a happy note the "Lofty Savings Goal" is growing as we are at 85.2%.

DS#2 was bit by a tick and has Lyme Disease. Fortunate for him the classic bull's eye rash was a dead give away and he is now on a 3 week antibiotic regimen. He did start feeling a little run down but hopefully he will be just fine.

Well, this is for this week. Please know that I'm thinking about all of you going through tough times.

Irma :(

Please pray for my family and friends as Hurricane Irma makes her way into Puerto Rico tomorrow. My brother and his family as well as a ton of extended family and friends live there. Thanks you.

For my fellow Floridian bloggers, I am thinking of you and please stay safe.

What do you think?

A few months ago, I told my DS#2 that starting November he is to contribute $400 for rent. He already contributes $200 towards the family groceries, pays his own car insurance, cell phone and his personal items. He is a great young man, super responsible, kind and generous and works a full time job with great wages. He saves most of his money and he is on his way to buying a two family home as an investment property. He intends to continue living with us and we are fine with that.

Do you think that $600 a month is fair? He agreed to it without protest but why do I feel guilty?
