A Few Updates and 2 Payday Updates

November 1st, 2009 at 07:29 pm

Haven't been on this site hardly at all for a few weeks. I hate it that I missed reading so many posts.

Anyways I finally got the dental work done that I've been dreading. It was fairly minor stuff but EXTREMELY expensive. Insurance paid close to $1000 of it and I still have/had to pay over $1100. I'm paying it in 3 parts. I paid $450 for my first payment and used my credit card so that I at least get some
rewards points.

I'm on vacation right now. I always take some kind of Halloween vacation. I didn't travel though. On Friday I went to a haunted house ($10 for about 15 minutes)
and went for a good 8 mile walk near there. That was a good night and the weather was wonderful. My sister and I also ate at a Mexican restaurant that I like that night.

Today (Sunday)for some reason I was completely out of it. I wasn't exactly sick but didn't feel good and slept most of the day. I'm feeling pretty good but Now I'm hoping I can still sleep tonight.

Well I missed making my payday update on my last paycheck from roughly a little over 2 weeks ago. I completely messed up on tracking it but didn't really do any damage. So I'm letting it go that whatever extra I had after my regular budgeted items just stays in checking for the cushion.

I also had a payday this past Thursday. After taking out my spending money and accounting for my regular budgeted items I had $194 left. Instead of dividing it up its just in my checking as more cushion to help cover the $1100 dental bill I owe. Next payday I'm going to do a little better dividing up my money. But the dental bill and a few other upcoming expenses don't leave much to work with.

Well I'm still off work until Thursday. Its going to remain a pretty tame vacation. I dread going back to work only because they have made some drastic changes at my store and I think I'm going to be miserable working there from now on. Its not going to be easy for me as I don't deal with changes well unless I truely believe they are good changes. And these are not good.

Thanks to anyone reading this. Hopefully I can keep up reading everyones posts again.

    It's always nice to hear from you. I'm glad the dental work went well. It's good to have a plan in place to pay it off...which you do. Yipee!!

    Thanks homebody. Thats exactly what I'm doing. I read as many posts as I could yesterday and now I'm starting fresh. I never can keep up with them all anyways.

    Thanks CCF its always nice hearing from you too. Yeah the Dental work is just another one of those little setbacks in life. I'm more glad that its over with than the cost actually. Now I can start working on some other things that need taken care of.

    No "crying bridge" stories this year? I was so intrigued reading about those last year.

    I have had a LOT of extensive dental work, so I know how you feel there. I had all mine done at a dental school. Big Grin

    LOL dmontngrey. You gave me a smile about the crybaby bridge. Yeah I didn't get to do anything like that for Halloween this year. I actually went to a place called The Gore Orphanage several months ago but its blocked off and there is no way to get to it. I know of some people that walked to it but they were shot at. If i ever get to investigate it any further I will let you
    know all about it. At least I did try.

    Thanks Mooshocker for the nice comment. I feel like a lot of you are dear friends on this site even though we
    all have different opinions, different lives, and don't really know each other in person. But still a lot of good people on here. I appreciate your encouragement.
