So last year I did this post about things just "going wrong".
Well, just when I resolve to get my debt taken care of, improved my bottom line, and get my finances in better order....
This month the following has happened....
What turned into get one or two new tires for my car turned into needing to get all four replaced, to an alignment repair and needing new brakes...
Then last Friday our refrigerator decide 63 degrees was just the right temperature to store food. NOT! So, forgoing repairs that would have approached a new refrigerator, we opted to get a new one. After hours of shopping online we narrowed our choices down to two models and then proceeded to shop locally for them at local stores. Well, needless to say, we found what we were looking for but we have to WAIT for delivery which is currently scheduled for next THURSDAY!. Arrrgh.
So now we are living on frozen food for a week not too mention that we will have to replace everything that went bad in the old one. DOUBLE Arrrgh!
So just when I was planning to reduce debt, I have added to it.
Perhaps I should have gone to a fortune teller before making my new years resolutions.
Speaking of which, I was looking online for a type of widget that would actually track my progress of reducing credit card debt and report it in percentage format much like my covestor widgets on the right sideline do.
Needless to say, I could not find one I liked. But I did find this...
Palm Reading Widget
Something tells me that if all palm readers looked like this, business would be pretty good.
So, starting next weekend, until I find a credit card widget I like, I will post my progress, for better or worse, on the right via a manual chart. And you will just have to take my word for it.
Oh yeah, and the stock market went really south this past week too.
But the month is not over yet. So, who knows what will happen between now and then.
