Slight sign of relief

After calling the county assessor's office, I found the tax payment only has to be postmarked by the 28th of next month. This will give me 3 paychecks to gather up the money I need. I'll still need to be careful with my spending, but at least I should be able to eat. I won't be able to hire a gardener, though, so either the back yard is going to continue to look like crap a while longer, or I'll have to risk a heart attack trying to hack my way through the jungle.

The county has had EIGTH months to send this bill out. Why why why couldn't they have sent it BEFORE FC?
