Paid off $1,050 so far!

February 11th, 2012 at 04:24 pm

Just paid another $257 to Visa. Down $1,050 so far. I am targeting another $450 in the next three or four weeks. It will be a challenge but I'm up for it. I'd like to see that balance at $3,500 by early March.

It's minus 25 with the wind chill today. No walk but I might hit the stationary bike. Oh, I sound soooo motivated :-)

A full moon? Financial RANT

February 7th, 2012 at 03:16 am

OK, really, this has been a brutal week or two financially. My son has asked for more money so he can graduate debt free. We have already paid $30K + living expenses for the last three years. And he wants more? We set up a line of credit so he could ride out his last year and accrue a small education debt (less than $10K). Was I ever that naive and feeling a sense of entitlement?

My employer screwed up my pay so I only got paid 10 hours out of 35 and they hoped I didn't mind a late payment for a week or two. Seriously?

Oh, and my brakes (pads and rotors) had to be replace on my new van. I have on 27,000 km on it!

I had to use all of my banked time because I was sick with pneumonia and in the hospital. That sucked another bunch of coin.

And what makes me crabby the most is that I was doing so well on my great Visa payoff plan.

RANT OVER - Thanks for reading.
