Back from Vacation.

July 27th, 2006 at 04:58 pm

Well, I walked the boards. I sat on the beach one or two days. I cycled on the boards. It was sorta relaxing.

I am now back to the grind as it were. I am going to take life one day at a time and not get myself crazy.

The next payment on my wife's CC will take me past the half way mark in terms of repayment. (Doing the happy dance!)
10 more payments left. So May of next year will see me clear of this debt.

I apologize for not posting sooner. Things just get crazy sometimes between home and work obligations.

I am glad I went away on vacation. I soent money I did not want to spend but all work and no play is not conducive to good health.

The gas prices were 3.02 a gallon for the week. Bad as that was it is worse now!Oh well!Smile

Thank you all for your words of encouragement and advice. I am back and will make a point of posting regularly!Smile

Up to 200

Well I added some more money and I am now up to 200 dollars. I am not as far along as I would like to be but something is better than nothing!

Leak in the upstairs bathroom!

There is a leak in the upstairs bathroom shower. Now I have to find it. So the upstairs bathroom save for the toilet and sink is out of commission.

I just finished fixing the upstairs toilet! The darn problems never end! Hopefully the issue is something I can resolve myself without spending too much money.

Gosh! I am tired!

Well, I have paid off some unexpected bills and the work is drying up for a while. It seems I never get to spend as much time here as I would like.

The bills are coming down slowly but surely. I have not had to touch the emergency fund though. I am going to wait for a life and death emergency financial wise!

I like the old line from "I Remember Mama". "We do not have to go to the bank!" It has become a mantra for me. I hate to spend the money saved in the bank.

I am so tired of being in debt and it seems to take so long to get out!Frown Sometimes it seems as if I will never get there. I dream of the day when there is no debt whatsoever.

The wife and I are getting along but we still haggle over money. I have not told my wife about the emergency fund that has been set aside. I love my wife but at times I just don't feel very close. It is a rather odd feeling to have as we go through our 18th year of marriage. Maybe it is just a middle age thing that will pass. I sure hope that is the case.

I am just bone tired at this point from the work and the scrimping. I am just plain old tired with everything. Sometimes I wonder what the point of it all will be?

I managed to put aside money for a weeks vacation at the Jersey Shore. Nothing fancy but I need to get away. I think I'll lose it if I don't just get away for a while.

Maybe there should be a feeling of guilt for taking a vacation while in debt. Well guilt is the last thing being felt right now. I am too damned tired to care!

I am too damn tired period!

Well, that is my update and I hope to find some time to spend reading the other blogs here! Hope you are all doing well!
