I have used credit cards for emergencies; probably most people do it or have done it. This article tells why one should not use plastic for an emergency fund, rather one needs to establish a real fund thru regular saving.
I got an email about this and did a search on it. Pretty cool the different ways common items can be used.
It’s been a good while since I went to the dentist; I keep putting it off because it always involves discomfort, pain, and is expensive. Well now I will have to get an appoint soon ’cause tonight whilst brushing my teeth I lost a big chunk of a tooth !!
The day is off to a good start ! I weighed myself this morning and I’m holding steady. I went walking this morning ! At the moment I am not feeling overwhelmed by the workload ’cause I finished that hyper-high priority stuff yesterday. Last but not least, I checked my bank account and noticed that one of my tax refunds is waiting to be posted ! It’s Friday !!!!
Today is much less stressful (so far anyway) than the past week or so; and I’m glad ! I don’t mind working hard but I can’t stand when people are getting all hyper to get it ALL done immediately !! Much better today. I went walking at lunchtime and it was so nice outside; perhaps I’ll do another walk after work.
Work has been a real bear lately but I left yesterday early enough to goto church for ashes. Today promises to be another rough one. I will try to get a walk in maybe at lunchtime….
This is a test post to see how well google docs works with my blogs…..
I am lounging around the house after a hard days work ! I will read some and listen to music, then off to bed….
I hope she gets an “A” she most certainly deserves one.
Here are some pics from the church and at the house before and after…..
I’m at my daughter’s house this weekend. Tomorrow baby Mike will be baptized ! Last week was a real bear at work and next promises more of the same. I’d like to have a couple easy weeks !
This is a useful little application that I wanted to highlight here: a bookmarklet that lets you save a web page as a pdf doc. This is useful to “print” receipts etc from online transactions.
‘So do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will bring worries of its own. Today’s trouble is enough for today. — Jesus Christ as recorded in Matthew
I woke up this morning with feelings of high anxiety about financial matters and my overwhelming workload. Worrying will not do me any good though. These word from Jesus are easier said than done but He does indeed speak the truth. Even if my financial situation was terrible and my workload enormous; worrying about would not be a useful thing to do. On the bright side I can say that at least I am well off enough to have financial anxiety and when the economy is in the toilet: a large workload is a good thing !
This is a response to a the question on Plinky “Have you ever gone a day without a cell phone ?”
I’m over 50 and did not have a cell phone ’til I was over 40. When my kids were in middle school they wanted cell phones; so we got them and I eventually got one of them as a hand-me-down. Now I have a razor phone but other than the basic functions I don’t know how to use it and don’t really care. The cell phone is handy, and good for “emergencies” but I don’t really use it for casual conversation like my wife and kids do. Continue reading
I was not very busy at work today and also felt rather unmotivated. I did walk three times today which is good; a total of 2 hours. However, I also blew my diet big time ’cause I had a snack attack this afternoon.
A busy day at work ! I was making good progress on my scheduled items but then I had to take care of another high priority rush job which I just completed. I did get a short walk in the morning but no lunch time walk ’cause I worked thru lunch.
I’m dog tired; I need to make a point to get more sleep. I actually didn’t stay up late last night; went to bed at 10:00. I guess I should have gone at 8:30 because I was up late a couple days this week and work was really grueling last week. For now I will surf the web and mess around with my blogs. I do need to goto bed though so I can make sure I goto church tomorrow.
I am off work for the weekend after a grueling week ! I just installed scribefire on my netbook and this is a test post to see how well it works.
I’m chilling out in my office with the door closed. I finished the hyper huge load of hyper high priority stuff that appeared on my desk earlier this week and I am figurin’ to sneak out of here in a few minutes. I worked thru lunch and didn’t even snack on the office junk food, so I’m mighty hungry. I think tonite is a pizza nite !!!
It’s been another hyper busy day at work. Of course that’s much better than getting laid off. I went walking this morning and started to go at lunchtime but changed my mind when I looked at the trees and wire swaying all over the place; it’s been very windy last night and today.
