$174.05 Electric Bill

August 29th, 2006 at 03:15 am

Darn! my eletric bill this month is $174.05 Frown I just don't get it. I really can't complain to my uncle who leaves his TV on all night and day because my mom gets upset if anyone says anything to him and I can't call the electric company to have them check as why it is so high because it is in my mom's name, and she is old set in her ways and questions nothing. The agreement when I moved back home is that I would pay the water, cable and light bill.. All I can say is darn, I took the money out of my personal account because I wanted to pay the bill before the storm hits in case I am unbale to pay online and payday is not until Thursday, grant it if he deos the payroll

August 29th, 2006 at 02:35 am

My nephew married his HS sweet heart on Friday and did not tell anyone until yesterday. I like her but my mom is upset, I have no idea why I think it's because she has a kid already but who knows. She is a nice girl very ambitious studying to be a nurse. I am happy for them

Great Day

August 27th, 2006 at 04:47 am

Today was a really good day, I read some ones blog who was doing the "happy dance" well I am dancing today. I got my credit report from Experian who was to validate a debt, well they were unable to do so and it was deleted so I am dancing SmileNow I am waiting to hear from Equifax and Transunion

Changed my mind

August 26th, 2006 at 12:54 am

Well I changed my mind about using the extra $200.00 towards the CC, since my car gave a little trouble today my uncle is actually taking a look at it tomoorow and maybe have my cousin's husband who is a mechanic check out the oil leaks so I am holding on to the money rather than paying the CC and then charging in the future. I am trying to stay away from placing anything and I do mean anything on the CC

Why me?

August 25th, 2006 at 10:50 pm

It seems like I am the only person in the world when it comes to getting paid. My part-time job did deposit my check ( I made a change in which account funds should be deposited to ) so I have to pick up this check but the next one should be ok. I hope. I figure since I have $274.00 in my personal account I may add it to the cc depending on my check. we'll see

A friend who only sees things her way

August 25th, 2006 at 09:58 pm

I have a fried who is so stubborn and who refuses to listen she drives me crazy. Today we had an argument because she says her ex will not drive 30 minutes to pick their kid up for visits but yet she won't either. Now she was living locally and decided to relocate because I think she was jealous of his new relationship. So I asked her how can you expect for someone to do something that you yourself refuses to do, I tried to explain to her that one has to lead by example.

Car problem...gone

August 25th, 2006 at 09:53 pm

Well my uncle came and fixed the hose on the car which he said was no good, thank God it only cost $23.00, but he said I had not oil and I know my car is leaking oil so I need to make sure I watch that since I am back in school and doing a lot more driving. But I am happy that it's fix for less than $100.00

Of all days

August 25th, 2006 at 04:46 pm

Well my car finally started with the headaches. I got to work today and freon was leaking, I am thanksful I was at work and not running errans. So I called my uncle hopefully it's something he can take care of...keep your fingers crossed.

33.00 Less

August 25th, 2006 at 12:47 pm

Well I took the book back that I paid $133.00 for and there was a page torn, I guess because I had it in my book bag, well The book store only gave me $106.00 back Frown and the new book I bought was $80.00 so instead of saving $52.00 I actually only saved $20.00 Frown I guess it could be worst but hey. I have learned my lesson and that is to shop aaround before I buy any textbooks
