  1. one bill paid off

    by , 11-24-2008 at 05:46 AM
    I paid off my pay pal account. it just jumped to almost $800 a few months ago I bought some jewelry and a gold watch. With the price of gold going up , probably a good buy but, I ended paying for other things and let it go. It felt really good paying it off. I have a small amount less than a hundred on macy's and around 270 on Kohls. I hope to pay them off this month. I have 3k in college fees and also a lot of side bills this month like property tax so I don't think I will be able to pay anything ...

  4. Wedding over so now back to work

    by , 11-07-2008 at 11:15 PM
    Well that is over, only had a few upsets like the new MIL paying for only around 500 of the 2500 dollar reception when she was supposed to pay for more than half as most were the grooms friends and family, but backed out because she did not get to pick the reception site,as it had already been announced. Other than that the wedding went well. The only other crazy thing that happened was when I got my hair cut, I thought the bill would be around 65 and ended up around 175. I almost had a stroke. ...
