Happy Friday!


Hello!  Lots to catch up on; it has been CrAzY!

My daughter graduated from Freshman year and will be going into Sophomore year next fall!  I can hardly believe it!  Where does the time go when you are raising kids.  That is the only aspect of my life (besides my aging process) that is traveling at the speed of light!

She is off this week and driving me crazy. Next week she starts back as a CIT at the art camp that she worked at last summer.  Next summer it will turn into a paying job and she is so excited to start saving for a car.  I am so excited about that as well.

Drive Chip & Putt
She didn’t make the cut for national competition, but she did get 2nd place for drive distance for her division.

The first day, she did very well for the difficult course, but the second day, she had a major meltdown. She basically gave up and quit
Needless to say there was serious yelling and major tears at my house that night.   Its not okay to quit in the middle of a very expensive tourney that I took vacation days off to ensure she get to play in.  Wow.  She almost ended her golf career that day.

Bank Hacking
They still have not refunded my account for the $147.70 that was stolen from me.  I have spent way too much time on the phone and today I shot off a letter to both the bank and the fraud company they use. What a joke.  They are quick to pay out the money to the criminals and not so fast to put it back.  I am livid.  It could have wiped me out and I am so scared that it will happen again.

We hired someone that I think will work out in our department.  We have been waiting for some job reclassifications to happen and now it looks like that is yet again, on hold.  OMG, its been 5 years since I received a raise. Is it any wonder I am in a bankruptcy?  Really?  I am working to get certified for Security.  That will come in handy down the road.

I have gained about 10 pounds I think.  I am not going to WW because I can’t afford it.  I still try to walk and eat right, but  I have been beyond stressed out lately. I am too afraid to get on the scale!

Not happening.  I tried it for a minute on the free online site called Plenty of Fish.  It should be called Plenty of Losers!  Done.

Baby Birds
I think a crow got to them as I can’t see them in there any longer.  I’m sad.  That is why I hate when I get nests on my patio, I feel responsible!

I can’t think of anything else to catch up on and so I will try to touch base soon!

I hope all is well in your little corner of the world!

  1. Oh DebtGirl … so sorry to hear life is wearing heavily these days. That tournament must have been truly awful for both you and DD, and I am sure she learned a really valuable lesson from the experience. It’s Friday, the weekend is almost here, and hopefully you can find some peaceful respite.

  2. That really stinks you haven’t gotten a raise in 5 years! What’s their excuse still? have you asked? My company went 2 years without raises between 2009-2011, but have been back to normal yearly raises since then. I would be freaking out if I went more than a couple of years without one.

    • Its a public agency. I have been promised different things and now again, was let down just last week. I had a talk with my boss and I think I might have overstepped and I am nervous. I feel comfortable talking to him, but maybe too comfortable. Yikes!

  3. I definitely know what it’s like to be going thru a tough time while trying to stay on track with finances. It’s definitely not fun. I usually stress eat and gain weight and then that makes me feel worse. Never ending cycle! And Plenty of Fish does suck, I used it for awhile and I got some seriously creepy messages…. No thanks!

    Hope everything starts to straighten out soon.

    • Thank you Bridget and every one! I appreciate your positive comments so much! I am going to try to get over this rough patch and get back to posting! Xoxoxo
