I received an email back from the person I lent $1500 to. She basically said that they had the money, their bank account got garnished, and that they don’t have the money now. I emailed her back, told her that we could set up a payment plan and that I would be fine with that. I still haven’t heard anything back from her and I believe it’s been over a week since I’ve sent her a response back.
I’m not going to take them to court. I don’t want the stress of that- plus, if they don’t have the money I’m not going to get it. End of story.
I feel better that I got a response. I’d still like my money back, but who knows if that will ever happen. I’m more upset that I lost a friend.
I’ve decided that I’m going to make lemons out of lemonade and I’m going to make up the $1500 myself. I’m going to do whatever I can to make that up. I’ll help people with blog designs, maybe make some soap and sell it, and do some more babysitting if possible. I’m going to turn this into a positive thing, even though I will have to work my butt off to make up the difference. 🙂
It’s sad that I lost $1500 and my best friend, but I’ve learned some important lessons. I’m going to be more careful with relationships, and I’m never going to lend money I can’t afford to give any more. I think that’s all I can do.
Anyone need a maid? I am fantastic at cleaning houses. 🙂
