Ugh, I made a mistake.
Today I spent almost two hours on the phone with a very nice lady who was able to bail me out of some of the mistake. The rest is going to cost me $$.
I could have hired a professional a year ago. I hired an automated service because it was cheaper – turns out it has holes in it. I could have done more research. I could have had more conversations. I could have done several things differently.
Live and learn, right? Such is life, eh?
Bleh, it still sucks.
Tonight I am fighting very hard to be thankful that the very nice lady was able to make about 70% of the mistake go away. I’m not going to lie – I’m not going to be thankful for this lesson. I’d rather have learned the lesson from a phone call or letter pointing out the mistake! Not a big ole’ bill!
But, with the bill . . I suppose I’ll also be thankful for our time this far with our Dave Ramsey plan, with budgeting, and for having a plan that prevents against these types of mistakes sinking our ship. We are still afloat . . frustrated, irritated, growling, but still afloat!
