Darn colds, and a payday update.

October 6th, 2009 at 09:07 pm

Well I caught a cold Sunday night. Been fighting it off the past 2 days with aspirin and Airborne. I always get sick as temps change. I am still in on Fern's heat challenge even though its been cold in here. My heat tried to kick on once but turned it off. I also had some strange
electrical troubles in my house the past couple of weeks. I finally got ahold of the electric company today and they sent a guy out that I think fixed the problem. There were some old wires outside the house that were pretty much shot and were overheating.
My nephew who is 36 years old had a stroke last week. It was very strange but good news because he recovered right away. They said he has a hole in his heart and it got plugged up or something so now he will have to take blood thinners the rest of his life. I'm just glad that it wasn't worse.

This past Thursday was payday. This was what I consider my extra check so I divided it up a little different than usual and tried to be as thoughtful about it as possible.

I put $20 towards the extra Principal on my mortgage. That will actually mean that I will pay about $140 or so extra this month.

I finished paying myself back ($100)for the last car repair that I had.

I'm putting $200 into my vacation fund.

Putting $100 in my 2010 IRA account.

Used $20 to buy a black ink catridge for my printer.

Leaving $110 in my checking for the cushion and upcomming dental bills.

And that left me with just my regular spending money.
