Wife has no new Credit Cards

August 19th, 2006 at 04:35 am

Well, I am a bit ashamed of myself. I have been spying on my wife to make sure there are no new credit cards. The good news is there appear to be no new cards.
Maybe we have turned a corner. I sure hope so!

My daughter is out west with my sister on a free vacation trip. The whole thing was free. My sister is very generous. I could never have afforded the trip for my DD.

The doctors have determined that I am pre-diabetic and have to make a very large lifestyle change. It is so easy to tall but it is much harder to accomplish. I am always eating junk on the run. Now I have to be very concious of diet and exercise.

The wife is still clipping coupons and I have had several no spend days on a regular basis each week.

The DW's CC bill is at the halfway point and I am looking for ways to add more money to pay it off sooner. I hate being in debt to the CC company. I also noticed that they have changed the interest rate so I am looking to see if I can do some sort of balance transfer.

MIL law may have a relapse of her leukemia. I hope she does not as that will be a great stressor on my wife.

Life goes on and I thank God for each day.

Checking for CC debt!

What a life I lead!:)

Well, I am now officially back. The news though is not so wonderful. The wife and I are fighting over money again.

My DDs room needed to done over but my wife goes crazy with the spending. All new furniture as well as carpeting. THe furniture is from IKEA. The wife has alreay hired a painter.

I don't begrudge my daughter a thing but this is nuts while I am paying off the DWs debt that now exists. Wife says she has the money but I am doubtful. She is now also talking about taking her mom on a cruise as a birthday gift. Her mom is 85 so I don't begrudge her as she may not be here much longer.

The problem is all this happening at the same time. I fear my wife is again spending money behind my back. I slso had a test this week to see if I am diabetic. That is all I need.

Life is otherwise hunky dorey!Big Grin

It is an interesting life I lead! Sheesh!
