Day 2

Blog Post #3 – January 2nd, 2020.

Today was my first day back in the office after taking a few days off.  Our fancy water cooler/keurig had blown a gasket before Christmas and they were supposed to come out and replace it.  They are out of the water/cooler/coffee makers so we had no coffeemaker. My office mate drinks several cups a day so I had to replace it immediately, even though I could get a new coffee maker any day.   Fortunately there is a Dollar General near the office and I was able to get a knock off keurig for $30.00. We will see how long it lasts. Even though technically my office is not on the Chapter 13 budget, it just goes to show that there are surprises around every corner.

Later in the day a friend from college, who is not a lawyer, saw my blog on my Facebook page and asked my how much money I had to live on each week.  I intended to answer that question tonight. However I left my copy of the budget at the office and I prepared the budget more than two weeks ago. I cannot remember what the numbers are.  That made me think about how our clients execute these plans. They come in to the office and sign up to live on these budgets and leave with their little packet of papers. They are full of hope and optimism about the future.  But if they go home and never look at the budget again they are doomed to failure. I started this journey with a full tank of gas and enough groceries to last through the weekend so I did not have to answer the question “is this item I am about to purchase in my budget?” Friday night we usually go out to eat for dinner.  Let’s see what happens.
