Here we go again

June 21st, 2008 at 07:19 am

Ok I am laying down watching TV and I hear click/pop. Remember the $1250 (total when completed will be $2500) that I spent on my bridge? Well the bridge fell out arrrrrrrrrgh. Thank God it is not broken and I am going to the dentist in the morning and I better not be charged because I told him on Thursday that it felt like a suction when I ate and he was to put in some type of a packing on Saturday which he should have done anyway. I am sure the pulling I was experiencing contributed to it coming out
On a different note, I am sure I have complained about my mom and money before. If you have a nickel she wants half and it drives me crazy. I received $43.91 yesterday from the phone company and my mom and her friend was here when I opened the mail and what does she say to me "you better give me that check" I was so PO'd I simply responded this is gas for my car. I hate when she does things like that it drives me crazy and a another bad habit that she has is constantly eating my lunch or dinner; not because she is hungry which wouldn’t bother me but just because. I can have a half of a sandwich left from lunch that I am having for dinner and starving and she’ll just finish her dinner and still want half of that. It drives me nuts, I finally said something like I would like to eat in peace some times and now she sits and stares at me while I am at the table. I hate the begging of it, especially since she doesn’t need to. I know it may seem selfish but it drives me crazy and she is getting worst or maybe I am because now at times (a lot lately) I would simply stay in my car and eat or go by my dad’s
Speaking of dad I filled out his stimulus paper work with the wrong SSN (first 3 digits) I hope it doesn’t screw up his chances for a refund
In regards to my sister my nephew said he thought she went to the hair salon yesterday. WHAT! You are in the process of losing your house and you are at the hairdressers? Unbelievable. My nephew wasn’t sure but I am almost positive she was. I gave her a $100 yesterday because I had some things in her garage that she took to the storage and I am sure she used this for her trip to the salon, unbelievable
But in the end I added the $43.91 t my challenge

    Oh gosh, Amber, I'm sorry ... I sure hope you can get that nightmare tooth problem fixed once and for all.

    Regarding your sister, I was just thinking ... I know you like to get your hair done too ... Is there any chance you guys could do each other's hair and both save some money that way, and at the same time teach her some of your awesome new frugal skills?

    Believe me, I understand your frustration at her getting her hair done while in foreclosure. I saw a little bit of the interview Ed McMahon and his wife did with Larry King regarding their house being in foreclosure. His wife was sitting there with a fancy manicure. All I could think was "Your in financial trouble? I can tell you the first thing to do! Stop getting the frickin manicures!" I had to stop watching ... Couldn't stand it.

    If my Mom were treating me like that, I would feel so hurt....Sounds like your family members are going to just keep on surviving as they are, but maybe never get themselves to a place in life where they are really satisfied, happy, and fairly secure. That is sad to think.

    I had a mil similar to that. She took, took and took without ever giving while bragging about her millions of dollars in cash and real estate. She grudgingly gave them b-day presents of $50 each while expecting her children to spend hundreds or more on her b-day. She would play her children one against the other in attempts to get expensive presents from them. My ex, just after we separated bought her a $2000 tv and then said he couldn't pay child support because he didn't have any money.

    I'm sorry to hear that you're still having problems with your dental work. Hopefully, you can get that resolved soon.

    I don't think that you are selfish. Your family has boundary problems. What's yours is mine and what's mine is yours. Usually, their's is never yours.

    As for doing each other's hair, the only one who may get their hair done is is your sister. My husband tries to trade work and honestly it usually doesn't work out for the one with some integrity. He usually always loses out on those deals. You could try it just to see but chances are that it will be the same problem with a trade as well. That could become your new job.

    As for your mail, you might have to open it up when you get to your room. Know that you are looking forward to having your own home and privacy.

    thanks guys for the support. Don't get m wrong I lovde my mom but when it comes to money she is such a hoard

    It's just crazy to me that your Mom wants things that are clearly yours and for no real reason. I hope things get better soon. Hope your dental work is done, soon, too. That must be so frusterating. Just remember your goals and imagine the bliss of your own house. Smile
