The bad part:
I've been sick most of March and the early part of April. Basically it amounts to several things that occurred at once like severe seasonal allergies, a relentless cough, change in medication strength, and finally overall severe fatigue. I probably missed something, but those were the main ones. I'm better but not at 100% just yet. My mom has not been well and my uncle had a fall.
April has been a slow start to the business and though we have bids pending, we haven't heard back. There may be a bottle-neck somewhere but hopefully we will get approval soon and get to work. For one of my clients I ask them to remove "insurance inspections" off our contract agreement. It is not worth the trouble and time for what they pay. Let me say this... if you know anyone who is considering getting a reverse mortgage, if you care about them at all, don't let them do it. I will explain the dark side of what I have seen in another post.
The good part:
Our business did well this month and 1st quarter.
My youngest finally is receiving SSI payments. We applied for him in October.
I earned another $5 Walmart card and $5 from Receipt Hog. My savings is growing and now it is half-way to my goal.
Credit card balance is going down.
Credit score went up 25 points since January due to paying down the one card aggressively and making on time payments.
