GBU - April 29, 2012

We are almost 1/3 of the way through the year.  CRAZY, man.  CRAZY.

The Good: 
  • Loan funded!
  • G-man had another 7 hrs of overtime this week, and has more next week.
  • I may be increasing my hours at work.
  • Gas prices are going down.
The Bad:
  • FSA wants more documentation for the root canal before they will pay it.
  • A few minor changes in schedule will lead to a zillion phone calls that need to be made to fix the fall out from the changes.
The Ugly:
  • I think some of my periennials are dead.  I haven't lost all hope, but it isn't looking good.  My flower budget may have to go to replacement instead of addition.

You know the deal....what are your GBUs this week???


  1. At least your goods outweigh the rest!! Sorry about your perrenals! :( I've lined you up to my GBU's today... :)

  2. Did you schedule the payments to the credit cards yet? I can't wait to see those zeroed out.

    1. They are scheduled, although one isn't until May 2. I think I am going to wait until Friday for the reveal.

      And remember...there may not be all zeros. There is miscellaneous interest left, and a few hundred that didn't get covered. Close, but not quite zero this week.

    2. Well, that's pretty close. If you have the funds to pay the interest, pay it just as soon as you see it, and record those balances as zero. And for the one that still has a few hundred on it, that's no big deal. As you can tell, I am getting excited vicariously! ;o)

  3. What kind of perennials do you want? I have some to share. I've gotten LOTS of mine by trading with others. It's much more cost effective. You can also try

    1. I have tried GreenThumbTrader, but there never seems to be anything available. I may be looking too soon.

      I am looking for Delphinium, Blue Aster, and anything listed here:
