You ever have one of those days where you've carefully budgeted your money so that you'll be just about able to fix your car, feed your family & have a modest Christmas only to find out that some dingus hit the wrong button in an office somewhere and cleaned out your checking account? I'm having one of those days.
I discovered it when I went to pay for groceries & diapers and my bank card was declined. I go home and look at my account and find out that my credit card company took an unauthorized withdrawal that they weren't supposed to take and now my account is empty and about to be over drawn when the check I ended up having to write for the food and diapers is processed. I called the credit card company and the bank and both say it will take about ten days to clear it up - if they can fix it at all.
This is a problem because that was my FOOD MONEY.
I sell ad space to this blog as a way to help ends meet, and in response to the emergency I find myself in, I am now offering a 'save my butt sale' where any orders placed before Monday (when I'll officially be screwed) will get a 25% discount.
If you're feeling altruistic, there is a donate button tip jar on the right hand side of this blog. Even five bucks will help immensely if you can spare it and will be greatly appreciated.
Ten days doesn't seem like much, but if you've got little kids to feed and diapers that need to be bought, it really is a hell of a wait.
If you know anyone who could benefit from advertising on my blog, please send them my way!
Sorry for the kvetching, this is just an unexpected setback and it kind of threw me me for a loop.
