Good news

July 30th, 2007 at 10:15 pm

I have good news all around, my nephew came home today. He said he was doing much better and wanted to start work on Monday, I told my sister to go ahead and let him (try not to baby him) so I am happy; he's also not hearing the voices which is great

My brother paid me the $500 + an extra $30 so I was happy with that.

I added $100 to my challenge/home account $50.00 to my car account (for payments) and $20.00 to the principal on my auto loan and paid on my misc stuff like the cc in which I had dental work done

So today was a great day

Tried the movie thing

July 28th, 2007 at 01:36 am

I rarely go to the movies and I have had a couple of free passes for awhile and decided to use them. Well, I firgured no one will be there at 7:40 and I will leave a few minutes before just so I could get there in the nick of time to miss all the previews, wrong. Well I get there and the line is around the corner with tons of teeny boppers and no parking spaces other than valet and I am not paying for valet; so guess what no movie for me. Maybe I will try it again later

Car loan

July 28th, 2007 at 01:25 am

Well I paid $10 on my car, I think every extra funds I get I will split it between the challenge and my car loan. The goals is to pay off the car ASAP. I don't care if it is a $1, if it is extra $.50 will go towards my challenge and $.50 towards the car's principal. The sooner I pay it off the better

It's been a long time

July 26th, 2007 at 08:37 pm

I have not been posting or reading blogs like I normally do; I have been so busy. I did however upped my challenge this week by adding my weekly deposit of $25
new total $3352.86, I also upped my car account. The goal with m car account is to save a $1000 and once I do that (while earning interest) send it directly to the bank in order to try and pay off early

In regards to my nephew he is doing a little better he's still hearing voices but not seeing the faces so hopefully after a while he won't hear a thing. He's on Haladol which causes a lot of complications and I told my sister to speak with his MD in regards to changing it to something else, even though it is the less expensive it causes a ton of other problems

I have my second test today (health law) I think I will be ok, the last one I got a 91 so I am striving for a 100 this time around

Good news

I have great news, my sister saw my nephew today and before she could get in the door the guard told her he was soooo much better. I am soooo happy, tomorrow before work I will go and see him. Monday, he will wil re-evaluated to determine if he can come home or not. Even told my sister that he was glad that he went, which is a good hing because now he recognizes that something was wrong.

My neice made a valid point, she said he was going to be alright because he heard voices that only told him good things and not things to steal or kill; which made sense to me

Any one uses ING bill pay with the checking account. I was trying to set up my payments for the car and it says to allow 2-3 days, deos it really takes that long?

Prayers help

July 20th, 2007 at 02:25 am

It is so nice to have a support group and that is what I like about this site. On my way to work I cried pratically all morning for my nephew and right before I was leaving I got a sense of relief. Next I spoke to my sister who said he was doing much better, so a special thanks is do to every one who kept him in their prayers, it's not over bu at least we are making progress

Help: Prayers are needed

July 19th, 2007 at 02:32 am

The more and more I think about my nephew the more and more I get depressed. All my life basically I battled depression so I know or some what have an idea what he is going through. He did state today that he was very depressed because he wanted to go to college and felt like he couldn't. Also the nurse told my sister today that he is facing the first stages of schizophrenia. I did some research which states the actual onset in males are 18-25 my nephew is 19. They think that he may have been facing these troubles all along and what ever he took triggered it. I am asking any one here who believes in God to pray for him so that he may pull through this. I am praying that it is the drug he took and once it is out of his system he will be back to normal. Just thinking about it puts me in tears. Please keep him in your prayers
Poor kid he ever gave any trouble and he tries he really deos but he also says it is hard for him to concentrate

$20 challenge

July 18th, 2007 at 03:24 am

Well I have not been adding to the challenge like I should but I did ad my weekly $25 deposit; new total $3352.85
I also added $148 to my car account, I firgured I still should be adding to this fund for any repairs or insurance etc that will be coming due that new total $756.11. I almost forgot I added$30 to my EF account and $50 to my IRA, paid $100 on the cc as well

Update on my nephew

July 18th, 2007 at 03:11 am

Well I saw my nephew today, I can't tell if he looks better or worst. But I took a book that I thought was easy for him to read and a Bible. Unfortunately I wasn't even thinking when I bought him a journal with a button, you can't have buttons in a mental institute because people are known to swollow them. I hope he can pull through this, his blood was drawn and we will know what he had took or what was in his system. Poor kid, thank you all for your is really appreciated

What a day

July 17th, 2007 at 01:17 am

What a day from Hell, I had to leave work only after about 3.5 hours because my mom was watching over my nephew who tried some sort of drug with a friend and began hallucinating. My sister would not answer her phone at work so I kept calling her cell phone she would pick up but not say a word and then hang up, finally I said to her I am taking M to South County ( mental institute ) and she needed to come (he is her son).

What the Hell are these kids thinking? I am so annoyed with him, because he never gave any trouble and now he is doing this stupid crap. Now I know he has a learning disability and he reads on a 6 grade level I think and because of that coupled with being picked on in school he has low self esteem. And why is it that people do not teach their kids that making fun of is the same as bulling and can cause a ton of problems

No hair appointment

July 14th, 2007 at 01:29 am

In two weeks I have not gone to the hairdresser so I have saved $70 ($35 each visit) I added the $35 for this week, so my new total is $3328.85
I am still waiting for the $500 my brother borrowed

it feels good

July 13th, 2007 at 03:39 am

To take a test and know the answers. I took my first test today (health law) and I knew all the answers except for maybe two but they were essay questions so I BS'd around the answer. I can't wait until next week to see how I really did, but I am very comfortable because I was studying my behind off

Warning : very disturbing blog

July 11th, 2007 at 02:48 am

a few weeks ago, a woman was raped and her son (12 years old ) was forced at gun point to participate. This case has got me so upset that I have searched online for a place or a company who might be accepting donations for this woman and her kid. What's even more disturbing is that the crime was committed by a 14 year old and a 16 year old as well as about 8 other kids. My God what is this world coming to. My boss told me that Wachovia is excepting donations so I will go in tomorrow, I am using my tithe money in a way I feel guilty but I also feel like we as society owes this lady and her kid something and God would understand. She lives in a really bad part of town and according to neighbors she never spoke or bothered anyone and that she kept her son inside all the time because the neighborhood was so bad. Now these a%%^$ holes knock on her door and tell her, her tire was flat then pusht their way into her apartmet. Now what if her kid goes out and commit a crime can we really blame him...poor soul. I am just so P.O'd by what is going on here with these damn kids committing crimes and parents are saying they are too young, you're damn right too young to be commiting these sorts of crime but old enough to and understand the consequences
Sorry I am just so upset

Paid off cc 1

July 11th, 2007 at 01:55 am

I actually paid off all my CC's the earlier part of this year but had to use them for the dentist and my tuition. Anyhow on the 4th I called in regards to cc1 to cancel my account and was told if I did ,so until the balance was paid off I would be charged $3 so I decided not to close it and pay it off next pay check. Well guess what it was closed Frown So I went ahead and paid oit off, thus far I do not see a charge for $3 but will be a little annoyed if next month I get a bill, the only good thing was I wasn't charged the annual fee ($69) or any finance charges because I paid it off

I know it is going to hurt my credit because I closed the account but I do not plan on buying anything soon and being the frugal person that I am now, I am not going to pay another company to use their card, when I can use another's for free

So new balance $508.82 (one clas plus a book) This will be paid off next month

$23 over

July 7th, 2007 at 03:12 pm

I just checked my checking account and found a $23 charge from Sam's club (?) I have no idea what this is for, now I renewed my membership online for $35 but what in the hell is the $23 for. Of course I have disputed this charge with the bank but now I have to figure out who to contact at Sam's. What a pain in the you know what, it says they (customer service ) is open on Saturdays but of course when you call the office is closed Frown

Happy 4th

July 5th, 2007 at 12:09 am

Hope everyone had a really nice holiday, it rained here most of the day. Now I am not complaining because we really need the rain here in south FL, however I wish it would rain over the lake where it is needed the most. Anyhow, just wanted to wish everyone a Happy 4th

Darn it

July 1st, 2007 at 03:29 pm

I tried yesterday cancelling a cc that charges me an annual fee, well the idiot on the other line was unable to cancell my account and "tried' so he says to transfer me to another person, in which I never actually spoke with. I had to then get ready for work and and once I tried to call later that evening, of course the office is closed, I tried again today and of course the office is closed Frown Now I have to wait until tomorrow and probably will be charged the $69, why didn't I do this sooner? darn it.
