So many Bills, So little Money!

Every hear the Term "Robbing from Peter to Pay Paul"?

This appears the appropriate term that we have been using During our Winter months here in Hartford City Indiana.

We have Ran into a MAJOR Snag with the Gas Company here, more major then last winter. lets just say that we had to get on a Payment plan cause our bill for a 3 month period all together was about 2/3's our Income combined together. More then what it was last year.

The good thing, I suppose, is that we got a hold of winterzation program here locally, they sent someone out to check out our furnace and water heater. unfortunately, we've had a Small Flood in the basement, since winter is leaving, water is draining in our basement.

So he's going to come back with a friend to check in Mid summer, if it's all Dried up, we will be getting our water heater and furnace replaced to a 90% Efficiency. So hopefully this coming winter will be a better winter for us once we get our Ancient Furnace and water heater replaced with a newer model.

Until then, we are paying off our debt to the gas company that was their fault, but of course being a monopoly, they will not own up to their end of screwing us over cause they know they can get away with the shit cause we need gas to heat with.

Anyway, on the other note... Our Kitchen Renovation will have to be put on Hold for next year most likely, due to the high debt with the gas company, we won't be able to afford the materials to redo our kitchen this summer, the Kitchen is function able so it's not too big of a deal, but looking at an unfinished kitchen has it's draw backs of not wanting to go in the kitchen, cause of the look of unfinished, it's kinda Stressful.
