Checking in

Good morning all!

Hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas 🎄 and Hanukkah

Things for me have been really hectic. As some of you may know my dad passed away late April and left me in charge of things. My oldest brother, who is a complete idiot has decided to sue me because he feels as though I manipulated my dad and everything was to be left for him and not split four ways. I'm splitting thing amongst all the children and he's not happy. So any money left in dad's account for me that I was going to split has to be spent on legal fees. Smh but this is a whole another story in itself.

My mom is still mom, miserable as hell. No matter how we try the woman cannot be satisfied. Her and my second oldest brother and sister barely speak, they both feel as though she should tell my oldest brother he is wrong for suing me and she refuses. I failed to mention that this same brother lied on her and had her in court, not to mention almost locked up in jail (the one suing me) . But what I've learned is that they are two peas in a pod, they're just alike, greedy for money and selfish. Here is a mom incident, to give you an idea of how she is. The other day my nephew was on the phone with his wife and mom was in the background yelling that he was seeing another woman, needless to say that wasn't true and my nephew and his wife had it out once he got home.

I finally got a job, my boss is crazy. The entire team as well as others have spoken to her boss about her attitude, it appears as though she is trying to adjust but we can tell it is extremely difficult for her. We all are just waiting for her to explode

Onto financial news, I've signed up for the 401(k) through my employer, maxing out at 6%, first time I've ever max. The company is on a vesting schedule and they match only 25% up to the first 6%, but hey for me it's free money.

Today marks the end of year for me so I'll be entering in receipts all day getting myself prepared for the new year. I've spent a ton of money and racked up CCs, so it's time for me to buckle down. If ive said it once, I've said it a thousand times, blogging for me keeps me accountable when it comes to my finances, so hopefully I can keep it up.

Happy New Years everyone

    I can't even imagine having to deal with family members like that. How awful Frown Seems like you're pretty level about it, though - which is an accomplishment all in of itself. Hopefully everything will be resolved soon. With ya on the fact that blogging keeps you accountable! I have the exact same experience. Best of luck!
