Well Friday has come and gone and Saturday is almost over and I have not heard from my sister, which doesn't surprise me. Tomorrow I am calling her to let her know I will be there to pick up my $300
Then my uncle call to tell me he was waiting on a $1500 check to pay me my $500..what! it's $550 not $500
You know, I know times are hard with every one but lending money always get me in an uproar, I do it because I always think what if I needed the money and then I give in. And I am always driven crazy. My uncle had already informed me that it would be a while before he could pay me but I wasn't thinking 6 months. My sister on the other hand, is a different story and I should know better (no excuses)
I returned my text book for $140.80. I went ahead and kept the homework manager that comes with it
Got my BoA bill and the finance charges were little more than $55, I can't wait to pay this card off
Anyhow I went to the gym missed yesterday and forgot to work on my abs so I'll be headed back tonight. The funny thing is, I went to Publix after wards and could not resists the vanilla cake
I am a little upset because I can not add to the challenge and needed to take money out of my EF to last me until next pay period. I knew I had socked away way too much but but thought I would give it a try
Yesterday and today's spending

Education : Books 43.99

Groceries 11.74
Misc (co worker owes me $3) 8.95

    You have a good heart, but I think that as soon you get your money, you should tell your family members that you will no longer lend anyone any money. I know how you feel because I've been burned several times and it leaves me resenting the borrower. It aggravates me that people think they do not have to pay. I'm sure that it took a while to save $850. Sorry, just my two cents.

    I agree with NJDeb, but I know it's much much much easier said than done.

    Hey Sunshine. Don't be too hard on yourself for missing the gym and the vanilla cakes. We all have days where we don't stick to our resolve, and there is nothing wrong with it. For your family, well, you know I agree with NJDebbie about not lending them money anymore. But I also know it is tough. And I know they helped you out. But I think you have helped them out enough to make your all more than even.

    You must have more of a conscious than i do, cus i would just say no. it's not worth the stress collecting on it. There are certain people i don't even like to lend out other things, cus i have to ask to get it back.
