I’m dreading going over the bills that are due. With Chris having been sick and off work for a week we’re going to have less money this month. You see Chris is only Part time at the hospital – oh he works full time hours and gets a percentage added on top in lieu of benefits, but because he’s part time he didn’t get any sick pay for his time off.
So … in a little while I’ll be pulling out the gas, telephone, cable, electricity, house and car insurance bills and be going over them. Some are due now and others are due near the end of the month.
I do like to stay on top of our bills. Back when we lived in an apartment I was horrible about paying bills. We were always behind. It wasn’t like we didn’t have the money – I just hated paying the bills. Dumb eh? Now that we have our house I always pay the bills on time … unless we’re in a financial crunch. We’ve only been a little behind of bills once or twice. Hopefully this isn’t going to be one of those times.
Do you pay all of your bills on time? Do you dread bills when you’ve had a set back like a spouse being sick and having less income for a short while?
