Today is GOING to be better than the past 3 days....because I have no more patience for cruddy days!
My car needed a front end alignment from where I skidded on the ice and crashed into the curb. We also had the oil changed (over due!), and out the door was $201. We had $350 in the car maintenance account, so *wiping brow* no new debt or dipping into EF. We still need to get G-man a new tire from his blow out a few weeks ago, and my tires still need to be looked at for the leaking (the shop didn't have time yesterday for everything). We already know the car fund will be empty very soon.
I need to call Target.com because they screwed up an order (long story). The current problem, which is probably Problem #5 I have to talk to them about, is they charged my entire order to my debit card because they screwed up my Gift Card. I am NEVER using the in-store pick up feature again....
I got a coupon in my e-mail for $10 off Turbo Tax at Target (and other participating dealers) and Target is offering a $5 GC for the purchase. So once I get the gift card/debit card problem solved....we will head to Target and get Turbo Tax. If you count the GC (which I will use toward my purchase if they let me, but I am guessing not), the final price of the software will be about $35. Then I hope to have the taxes done by the end of the weekend.
My BFF called me regarding her trip to London that I posted about a few weeks ago. She found out she is required to pay the taxes on the tickets, which will be $1600. And then of course, hotel, food, spending. She asked me what I thought.....and prefaced it with "I am not going to like it, am I?" So I told her I didn't think she should go. We talked about it for a good hour. I know she is going to go. I just told her that she will have to live with the decisions she makes about it all. And if that means she puts $3000 on a CC, then she has to accept it and know this was a CHOICE. This vacation is not a NEED in any sense of the word. She has a month to decide.
OK, off to get ready for work.....please send me good day vibes!
