A couple things done

Centralia, Missouri

Haven't gotten the car to get the oil changed yet, but did get the old mattress to the dump. We now know where it is, and it's fairly cheap, so we are going to start gathering up stuff we know won't sell and take a load a week or so. We really may have to get the house ready to sell, if we have to move, so the more done the sooner the better off later we will be. And honestly, it helps me feel like I am accomplishing something useful, you know? He talked to the recruiter, and the info from 2 years ago with the bad recruiter who just dropped off the face of the earth has been located. The issues here stem from his childhood and some counseling done by a doctor who was less than ethical, diagnosed him with a bunch of things that he never had. So despite having gone through lots of testing about three years ago to prove he does not have, nor prob ever had, those things, who knows what the military will do or not do. Still at least the recruiter does respond to contact attempts. The process there goes on. I need to spend some more time today and tomorrow working in the closet and the garage to get the trash bins here full, we already pay for 1 big can's worth a a week, and can always fill that, plus they don't mind a smaller can, or one larger item next to the can, so I best make use of what I already have. Oh and I got the application to delay payments on his school loans, being he is unemployed. I thought I needed more papers, which I didn't have yet, but I was wrong. Still glad that's done, in a week or so should know more there, but that saves us another 150 a month for now. Not a bad day. Now to catch up on here!

You accomplished a lot of things today. And just keep looking, he still might find something before a decision is made on the service.

I always have a good feeling when I manage to get rid of some rubbish or junk. We don't always manage to fill our bins now though.

I have yet to start working on it for next week, dunno if I will make it. I try not to start too early, dont want to run out of room for actual trash, rather than me pairing down what I cant donate

@Jessicalynnt That's true. You don't want household waste not fitting in the bin.

That is good you are reading yourself of stuff that is not needed or wanted. Good that the recruiter has contacted him also. Seems like you are having some good days now.

there have been some more positive directions than nothing at all. Still in a holding pattern, but have many things to do while holding, so we shall see!

I am glad that you are starting to sort things. It's great that you found the way to save 150 a month, this surely helps.

yep, even if we will be paying on it longer, that is money I can use on some other bill.
