Oh I didn't tell you all what happened on Monday. I was so wrapped up in trip planning I forgot to mention it...

So my niece (brian's actually) has been babysitting for us and on Monday she watches Kamren and Tatum, my niece and nephew; as well. One of the girls remodeling the house called me Monday at 330 and said that Tiff had been asleep on the couch all day. The kids weren't dressed, they hadn't been fed at all and at one point my nephew who is 1 was locked in a bedroom all alone screaming at the top of his lungs.

Apparently this isn't the first time. I sent Brian home immediately (I work 40 mins away)

I get out of here at 6. Will be home just after 6:30 after closing.
I'm really hoping Tom takes it upon himself to come up w/ some dinner seeing as he will get home at 5.

Hmmm. Should we place bets on whether this happens or not?

How come Kate is with you today instead of with your MIL?

nope. she didn't have a word to say. I told Brian to make sure he didn't pay her and that Sam didn't either. Ridiculous! Who lets a 1 yo, a 4 yo, a 5 yo and a 6 yo watch themselves?

They told me they thought it was like home alone. They ate ALL of the candy I brought home from Porcha and that's all they had to eat all day!

A few reasons.
She's pretty tired of going over there. It's just boring for her.
The inlaws are buying a new boat for Maine.
Actually they did at the end of last week. They needed to be there for delivery, sale of old boat and arrange winter storage.
Tom assured them that they could be up in Maine this week and not have to rearrange boat plans.

Kate wanted to come and since it hasn't happened much this summer neither of us are burnt out from it.

Hello!

For some reason things are just clicking for me at the moment. I don't know how long it will last, but I'm going for it while I can! I'm just so tired of not being able to enjoy pictures from trips and stuff because I hate how I look in them. I get so depressed.

So, I'm not going to wait around for another trip, or for a guy to come into my life or anything like that to whip me into shape. I'm going to whip myself into shape NOW so I'm ready for whatever comes at me.

I wish that you were allowed to take money from a retirement account with no penalties. I was just thinking how nice and easy it would be to take a few thousand bucks from my account, pay off my debt, and then not have to worry about it any more.

I don't think my account is set up that way. I don't really want to do that anyway. I'd still have debt then that I'd have to pay back. I want to take the money, pay stuff off, and be free and clear.

Good for you!
Sometimes I have a good run of it but then my period screws up progress!

I agree w/ you about not waiting.
You're worth it. Don't wait for any better reason than YOU!

How big is the penalty? Would it be worth it in the long run?
What % are you making on the acct vs. the % on your debt?

Not to ask personal info...I'm sure you thought about all of this.

The penalty is 10%, plus they take 20% in taxes. It sucks! So it's just not worth it to pay all of that. The interest on my cc isn't very high, it's just annoying.

Another thing I thought about doing is opening a second credit card, because I got an offer for no interest on balance transfers for 12 months. So if I put a little bit on the new card, it would decrease how much I'm paying interest on, and then I would just pay it off when I get my tax refund in February. I would never put anything else on that card so it wouldn't contribute to my debt or anything.

Somehow though, I have a feeling that's not a Dave Ramsey approved method for debt management!

Oh yeah then forget it.
You're paying less in cc charges.

I would never put anything else on that card so it wouldn't contribute to my debt or anything.

Somehow though, I have a feeling that's not a Dave Ramsey approved method for debt management!
We've done that twice over the years.
It does help if you are good and keep paying it down.

I don't know what Dave would think...but I bet you're right.

Yeah, I would only put as much on the new card as I knew could be paid off with my tax refund. Because if the balance transfer isn't paid off within 12 months, the interest rate is astronomical.

I need to get out of this office and move a little. I'm going stir crazy today for some reason. I think I'm going to get a smoothie because I know my lunch isn't going to hold me over for another 4+ hrs and I do not want to be tempted to hit the vending machine!

I understand.

We did that though, borrowed from it and now it's just set up so that Brian's paycheck is X amount lower than normal until it's paid back to ourselves at no interest. We dont' miss the money and it saved us HUNDREDS of dollars a month.

I'm going to start baking tomorrow. It's been awhile since i've really been able to cook in my kitchen and bake new things so I decided tomorrow with the start of school I am going to try out some new recipes and some that I haven't had in awhile.
