Well, I received some good news yesterday afternoon about the car accident we were in. The other guy's insurance company is going to reimburse me for the copays I paid out to my doctor for my shoulder injury but - here's the good part - they also insist on paying me something for my "pain and suffering"! From what I understand, the whole idea is to pay me something so that I won't come back and sue them for major damages later. I'm not really the type to sue (I've been sued before - and cleared - however, it was no fun to go through.) so I wasn't even thinking about the possibility. They are offering me $2,500 plus my $60 copays and a $500 'bonus' in case I need any other treatments for a total of $3,060.
If the Federal tax return pays off our target debt (currently Bank of America Visa), the next one on the chopping block is $3,600 to Lowes Home Improvement which is Aaron's barn materials. That card is on an 18 month special 0% financing plan, however it is our next smallest debt and must die.
I think it's kind of ironic that my shoulder pain will almost completely pay off Aaron's barn, which is coming along nicely I might add. :)
Once the barn is finished, I get the shed (which is attached to The Chick Inn) all to myself, so I am profiting from the barn as well. I can't wait to clean the shed out and set up a cute space for me and the chickens! My favorite part of the shed is that there is a window to the coop from inside the shed so I can just open the window and have feathered friends join me inside. :) I'm going to paint it up cute and add a fabric skirt to the workbench so I can hide uglies behind it. I've got big plans for that little shed! (I've even dreamed of making it a sewing studio. LOL! It's 8 feet by 8 feet! That would be one tiny sewing space.....but I'd take it!) :)
