In which it all (hopefully) blows over

So I've paid the back rent and spoken to my landlady's lawyer. He was actually surprised when I asked for an extension on the deadline to leave the apartment: having paid, I no longer need to move out. The business about not-renewing and must-vacate and such was all just lawyerism in case I forced them to go to court.

For this relief, much thanks.

Still to be addressed: the root cause of the problem: my laziness, my inadequate income, and my psychotic relationship to (panic fear of dealing with) money. Lioness writes about the difficulty of being a grown-up, well I have some issues in that regard too. Watch this space.

This is great news!
As regards growing up, we'll do it little by little.

A personal finance class did wonders for decreasing our money anxiety.

I was coming to give Moira's advice. Some people just have the temperament to be frugal, some can be taught. Nothing like motivation to enhance learning.

Oh, you and me both. We're behind on everything except the rent, but we pay that to friends, which means I'm a little more on the ball. But we've done some fancy financial footwork in the last two weeks to pay off our credit cards and fix the behind-ness, but it's taking every bit of my determination! Money sucks. I'm going to buy a book on personal finance, because then no one knows we've gone to a class. :-/

Oh Udge, I'm so sorry, it must have given you such a fright!

Growing up is overrated, I'm beginning to think.
