I Need a Fairy Godmother
I need a fairy godmother to make my wedding work. I need my own David Tutera! Never mind all of the tips and pointers I have on my website to help couples keep their weddings within budget because you have to actually have a budget in order for them to work. Want to know where my budget went? Probably not, but this is my blog so I'll tell you anyway.
Last summer a family member needed a place to stay due to unexpected circumstances, so we let her stay with us. Four months later, she needed money to move six hours away so we lent it to her with the expectation that she would pay it back in two weeks. Two months later, we still haven't been paid back.
Meanwhile, my job took a toll on me and I powered through the pain as I have always done. (I have had arthritis since birth.) Long story short I have little cartilage left in my right knee and right ankle, and lost my balance at work several times, falling once. This year I have worked a total of 10 days at my call center job where I was a manager. I was approved for FMLA and they are trying to change it to LOA since I have missed so much. Of course though I am no longer getting paid.
My fiance is stressing out, trying to figure out how to pay for bills let alone the wedding, and I feel helpless. He refuses to postpone it. I have multiple lines in the water, including making money from home, and I really really REALLY need my website to work. I realize that this blog is more personal than usual but I felt like if I didn't tell someone I'd explode. Who better than my WA family? We all have our issues. We all have our reasons for being at WA. Mine happens to include wishing for a fairy godmother. What is yours?
