The Good: This was my first paycheck that had my raise (and only my raise ... last one had back pay on it as well) on it. It was $80 higher than I thought :) This means I can increase my spending money, debt payments and still have enough to pay for my cleaning lady (she went on maternity leave and I was doing it without her . . . I realized she is SO worth the money I pay her!!!) With this I was also able to pay off another $ 350 towards my debts!
The Bad: I'm fighting the flu. Not terrible but not great either.
The Ugly: The Canadian Government "lost" information on 563,000 people who borrowed student loans between 2000 and 2006. It includes name, address, parents names, SIN, DOB etc. I called and I'm on the list. I now have to contact the credit bureaus and my bank to put fraud alerts on my file. This stuff went missing IN NOVEMBER and they're just telling us now!
There is a class action law suit starting to try and get the government to pay for monthly credit monitoring! What a nightmare!
