Almost black friday

November 22nd, 2005 at 09:19 pm

Well Thanksgivings at my house this year and tomorrow is the annual office Thanksgiving potluck. I'm taking pumkin pie cake. Weird sounding I know but absolutely delicious.

Last bill due this month is the car insurance. $301. It is a killer. My daughter told me she is giving me $500 next month. The extra for all the times she didn't pay the car payment. Well we'll see. She said she still plans on moving back in.

I'm going to have an endometrial biopsy done. I've never had one of those before. I'm thinking that unless its in the afternoon I'll miss a whole day of work. Oh well. My blood iron or platlets (whichever I can't remember) is still pretty low. As of last Thursday it was a 9. I saw the score on the data sheet. It came up with this larger print L and a 9 next to it. He said if I drop one more point I'll have to have a transfusion. I really hate being sick.

I'm done shopping for my little girl. Looks like she got everything she wanted. My youngest son just wants a dirt bike and my oldest boy "is perfectly happy and can't think of a single thing he wants". I told him to watch it or he might just get all clothes. I'm asking for a pair of new oven mitts. My got burned on the stove.

I can hardly wait until Friday. I have yet to do any actual Christmas shopping on black friday for the kids. I usually get the family gift on that date. This year we are getting a new tree so that will be a family gift. I'm going to go and look for comforters. Most of my blankets and Christmas stuff that were in my garage at the old house were runied from the house fire smoke. Oh well.

Starting in December I will be getting about $300 more a month because I've taken the kids off of my insurance. I just couldn't afford it anymore. I haven't heard anything from Kaiser yet. I was looking at some of the other insurance programs they have there so I might actually still be able to afford something.

Come December I'm going to put another $100 a month into my ING savings account. Than every month I'm going to buy a $100 cd.

I'm wishing you all a Happy Thanksgiving.

My couch did not just break!

Stayed home today. No call from the doctor so I guess my blood work at least came back as a pass. I just hate being tired all the time.

I've been just lazying around. I sat up on my couch and I sank into it. The corners of the cushions popped up around me and I felt like I was sitting in the middle of a half opened flower Smile. I'd have laughed if I had the energy.

I'm splurging for pizza tonight. First fast food in months.

The insurance adjuster called. He's sending someone out to look at my car. While I was at work the roofers splattered tar all over the hood and fenders and it ate through the paint. I thought the company would take care of it, well they refused. Even though my insurance deductible is greater than the cost to have it repainted, my insurance will seek the cost and reimburse me if they collect. It really aggravates me.

I looked at my bills for this month and so far I have:
103.58 Edison
54.99 Trash (3 months)
13.40 Water
44.37 Phone
89.41 TV and Internet

I will get the following estimated:

300 Car insurace
65 Cell phone
20 Prepaid Cell phone

stupid things I do

November 2nd, 2005 at 06:10 pm

Let me begin by saying that I have very little credit card debt ($800 on a one card). I've always paid off all my vehicles very quickly. After my divorce I worked diligently to pay of $14,000 in debt and I swore in 11/2001 that I would never get in that same situation again. I currently financed a car for my daughter and she is paying what she can every month. I kick in the rest.

Well, a few years ago I got a discount on tires by applying for their credit card. I was approved and I immediately called and canceled the card. About a year ago, I applied for an Amazon card to get a discount and I was denied (for having no credit none-the-less) but I got the discount and was happy. Now mind you, I am not in the habit of just applying for credit cards. It just isn't something that I do.

Anyhow last night I was looking at my union's web site because we are in the middle of negotiations. Well on the side, it said apply now for a union credit card. Since I was bored, tired, sick and dumb, I went ahead and did this. I filled out all of the little questions and I knew they were going to deny me. I mean I have no credit (Mind you last I looked my credit score was an average of 725). So "processing" it went. Then BOOM!. I get the message "You have just been approved for $6000". No application fee, no yearly fee. I thought I was dreaming.

I wasn't dreaming. I just checked my emails and sure enough. I got a confirmation letter telling me how to confirm my card and that I should receive it in 10 days. Frown. I've surely lost my mind.

Today has been going just as well. I didn't get anything done at work because I can't think. Doctor is ordering the blood test results ASAP because I might have to be transfused and to top it off, my lovely daughter called and said her and her boyfriend haven't been getting along and she wants to move back home (but its not a sure thing yet).

Well you'd never guess that I don't stay bored for very long.
