    I check my husbands 403b and other balances to make sure I am on track. We fully fund his account since he is older. I just started putting 50 dollars per paycheck aside in my 403b this payperiod. I also hope money magically appears but it doesn't LOL

    I log into my ING or other accounts too when i need a bit of motivation - I need to get a few things saved for this year so it does help and make you want to save rather than spend. Hope all goes well for you getting overtime and paying down your debt

    Your post came up as I was searching for Dam to Dam entries. I have been on the race committee for about 20 years and I think since this is our 30th year we should help you get to the race this year - May 30th. I will have your fee waived so you can apply it to your airfare or gas (its an easy 5 hour drive). Just go to our web site Damtodam.com and contact our administrator - let here no that Tom R waived my fee. We will enter you into the race. Check out the videos on our facebook - dam to dam or on youtube - search on "damtodamdesmoines".

    Good luck!

    A friend of mine just finished her lifetime goal of running a marathon in each of all 50 states by her 50th birthday. Sometimes, the value and reward can't be measured in money. Good luck with the marathon! (And with the training!!)

    Great job!! I haven't been running in over seven weeks, so I am afraid to see how out of shape I am when I finally start up again.

    How long have you been running? It is something I always say I will do and never start.... I love to walk though.
    Did you take body measurements before starting the program? Because if you are adding muscle you won't see the results on the scale.

    Well, I have sort of been doing this too. I have a very part time job (less than $500 a month). We use all my money to save and pay debt. At first it was $20 a week to savings and the rest to the one credit card. Next month, it is bye bye credit card, hello saving for a new roof (and EF).

    Go Hawks! I've been to a Bears, Bulls, Cubs and Sox games...but still have not made it to a Blackhawks game...someday! Less than $20 isn't bad for stadium food, especially if it included a beer! They can get pricey!

    I have a friend (and former boss) who is a firefighter, and you're right, they do keep odd schedules. I worked as a business manager for this guy (who had a side business) and they don't realize that people keep "normal" schedules. I'd get calls from him regarding work at 10 pm!

    Not saying that you couldn't have a "normal" relationship with him, but if he doesn't get that you have to go to work in the morning on a weekday, it'll probably be an issue!

    It doesn't sound like you are all too interested in him to begin with, so it's probably not worth persuing! Not to sound chiche, but when you find Mr. Right...you'll know it, and you'll know that making comprimises is worth it!

    Awww, I am sorry. You are right...he does sound lazy. That is the first warning sign! Oh well, at least you tried and that is what counts. When you least expect it...Mr. Right will come along...don't fret.
