$10 bet …day 3

I was trying to do some aerobics last night so I could be well on my way to winning the bet. My boyfriend saw me exercising and told me he was proud of me. I felt good so I walked towards him with a big smile, all happy that he was happy for me since I was exercising. I had almost gotten to him when he said “So I will have to give you some cookies as a reward”. He is still trying to sabotage me!!!! This just makes me even...

More credit report madness

When will it end? I go skipping through the rest of my credit report and go to check my credit score and what is this? My score is now 88 points lower than the last time I checked. I begin to have heart palpitations and then I start to hyperventilate. I read the details of the drop and it says my loan was 30 days overdue. I scrabble up my receipts and they all look fine to me. This was Sunday night so there was nothing I could do. I...

Going to the beach

It is supposed to be REALLY cold on thursday and all I can think about is going to the beach in St. Lucia. I am dreaming of Pigeon Point beach and I can feel the water in my mind. I might even go to Anse LaRaye beach since our house is about 5 minutes from the beach. Okay now why did I start thinking about this? Now I am craving a beach lime. I can just see myself taking some baked macaroni and red beans and fried fish and lime squash...

$10 bet…day 2

I made a bet with my boyfriend on Sunday 11/26/06 that I could lose 10lbs by Sunday 12/26/06. Why? Hmmmmmmmmm, maybe I went a little bit crazy for a few seconds. He did not think I could do it so we got the amount whittled to 5lbs lost in the two week period. That really got my blood boiling and I am convinced I can do it. In fact I will do more than 5 lbs and we will see what he has to say to that! Answers to some of the burning...

Blog’s worth

I just found this cute little button that supposedly calculates what your blog is worth. The mechanics behind it are beyond me but it said my blog is now worth $564.54. Okay then. So what now? Can I cash that in and run off to Hawaii and buy a condo on the beach? Or maybe I can get myself a blue Lexus Rx 400 like I always wanted. Nah, I am just playing. I put in a few other blog URLs for fun just to see the values they would come up...

Check your credit report

After that mini crisis with the credit card payment I decided to check my credit score. I hauled out my current credit cards so that I could compare the numbers with what showed up on the report. Red Flag! There is a card that I do not hold in my hand that is showing up on the report. No….I called customer service and told them I do have one card with their company but my credit report is showing that I have two. The lady says...
