  1. Just when i'm out they pull me back in!

    by , 12-05-2011 at 10:32 AM (My life, my pond, my world)
    Well I was able to knock out a few Christmas gifts this weekend, and also got another heater which ended up being more expensive then the one we returned. But I spoke to the person at Lowes and they gave me an even swap. Well thinking that would go off without a hitch, they never credited my account, and then the bank put three overdraft charges through on my account by doing a debit before a credit on Thurs and I got paid Friday. So after keeping everything on budget and writing down all my expense ...

  2. That time of the year

    I have never been a big fan of Thanksgiving and Xmas. It seems like I never had enough money to take advantage of Black Friday, Mudane Monday and any day of the weeks leading up to Xmas. Being single parent and low paying jobs kept me from buying presents for my children and family. During those early years, thank God for my family.

    I am back. I actually had Murphy working overtime. I got sick , didn't control my blood sugar and had about 6 nicks from shaving that went into abscesses on my legs and was in the hospital for a week with DKA and had 2 surgical debridements. So I am watching the blood sugar very closely. I am having home health for the wounds and IV antibiotics. I am not worrying about debt too much right now. I lost about a month of pay but the health is more important. I also lost 10 more pounds being sick. I ...

    I have always been a magazine nut. I would have at least 2-5 subcriptions and still would constantly buy magazines. I love all types of magazines, crafting, cooking, decor, general, gossip, educational. you name it, I would read it Besides my other habits, magazines rank right up there in the top 5. I have become more obessive since the show extreme couponing has aired. I find all kinds of coupons, tip and information in magazines. I stopped buying magazines for a while since the price has ...
