This morning I awoke in a complete panic. Last night, between Arhaus and Macy’s I spent over $4000.00. Okay Angel…take deep cleansing breaths and relax. Deep cleansing breaths…and relax. One last time…deep cleansing breaths…and relax.
It’s not so bad…everything was financed except the mattress. I wrote a $350.00 dollar check for a fabulous, king sized, pillow top Serta mattress, which was a great deal. To Macy’s chagrin and my surprise, the mattress was lost in inventory and recently found. Originally $1100.00 dollars before taxes, I purchased the bed and paid for the delivery charges for the rock bottom price of $350.00 dollars. Unfortunately, I don’t have the money to cover the check. Yes, that was a really bad move. No, I should not have written the check – I can see my checking account bouncing from here to Hong Kong and then being arrested for attempting to defraud a financial institution. Oh God, it’s time to pray.
“Lord, if you are listening to me right now, I ask that you come to my rescue. I know I wrote a bad check, please show me favor and move on the hearts of all my friends and family that I may have to call to beg for money. Please God, let someone say yes to my request. I cannot afford to bounce a check. Lord, I thank you in advance. Amen.”
Once I get to work, I’ll call my mom. If I need to take an extended lunch to pull together the money and deposit it in my account, then so be it. This is yet another reason to hate Bryce. I really cannot afford to lose my job because I am begging for money. I already need to leave work early to go to my counseling session in order to make it to class on time.
What else can I do?
