Last week, the water heater died. Contacted landlord, etc, got a plumber out here on Saturday evening to put a new one in. Since the landlord is out of state, I made arrangements with her that I would pay for everything and deduct it from the next rent payment. Everything proceeded as planned, all good.
Cue today when I'm doing paying my bills, etc, and I realize that I now have a cc balance about 4 times higher than I'd planned for. Shifted some stuff around to make a big payment on the cc, but I still have a $1k balance to pay and have taken the checking account as low as I'm comfortable. I'm unwilling to pull that $ from savings or other accounts, and luckily that cc has a 0% interest rate on it. So I'll just let it ride until next month. But darn, I REALLY hate seeing that balance on the cc.
