Week 51 in the mail & Gone....

This is getting exciting :)  

Still waiting on the big bonus check to issue to the Chapter 13 Trustee...boy is that going to hurt. 

We're short on money again.  For the first time ever in my life I accidently forgot about an automatic draft and got charged $35 by the Credit Union and $25 by my utility company.  I've had service with them for 35 years and they practically made me out to be a bandit.  Holy Moly.......I'll be on my toes for sure now.  Only missed a direct deposit by one day...What an expensive one day, $60 .....WASTED.

I would try to get out of the OD at the bank.  

I just messed up, too!  I have a system down when I pay bills on-line, but somehow.....

I entered the cell phone amount in the cable box, therefore I only paid half of my cable bill, and nothing to my cell phone.  I ignored the warning, because I knew I just "paid" the bill.  

So, $25 added to my bill for reinstating my cell phone.  Are you frickin' serious?  

When I got the notice from the cable company, I read it and realized what I had done.  Luckily I didn't ignore that one thinking "I just paid that."  Nothing turned off, but $6 late charge.  

My peri-menapause is getting the best of me, I think.

Sorry to hear about the overdraft business. How incredibly irritating? Money just vanishing into thin air! Well, here's a toast for getting closer to the finish by yet another week. Hang in there. Keep it up! The end is in sight!

Happy happy dance!!!! So excited for you. Sorry about the one day mishap. I can't believe neither company would adjust the fees in the name of good customer service >:(

Oh I hate when I do that! See, even the ones who know better forget at times!! Its even more frustrating when you have the money but haven't transfered it or something simple that just leaves you kicking your self!

On the bright side...less than a year now Norma! So exciting!
