It Was Scheduled to Transfer and I Couldn’t Do It!!


I am starting to wonder what the heck is wrong with me. I have had plenty of time to think about what to do with a refund from my credit card. I received some great comments when I posted my dilemma earlier on my blog, and I had the $5,600 all set and ready to go to Credit Card #4. The payment was scheduled for tomorrow.

Then today, I got real nervous. I almost wonder if I was starting to have a panic attack. Doubt filled my mind and then I started thinking of all of these reasons why I should pay Credit Card #2 instead.

Ugh. This is annoying. I don’t think I have ever been so indecisive in my life. Wait – who am I kidding? I’m about as indecisive as they come sometimes.

I don’t want to bore everyone with the thoughts that run through my (what I now believe to be) crazy mind. But I think what I am going to do is flip a coin. Let fate fall where it may because I cannot come to a decision.

Times like these, I wish I had a Magic 8 Ball handy 🙂

If Money Were No Object…


Single Ma had a great post about what she would do if money were no object. Others have chimed in, including a very funny post from Make Love Not Debt that still has me smiling. The latest (that I know of) is JLP of AllFinancialMatters. He brought up a great point that it would be great to give money away anonymously.

Here’s what I would do:

1.) Pay off my debt (no real surprise there).

2.) Buy my dream home on the Lake for less than $300K (unfortunately, the sale is pending so I am a little late).

3.) Give to my family to help them financially and give them money to visit me at least once a year at my dream home on the lake.

4.) Buy between 40-160 acres so I can have the opportunity to make a log home from scratch. It will serve as my guest house when my family comes and visits me once a year.

5.) Probably the most frivalous thing – I’d buy a monster truck. I’d drive in all of the local parades and throw out tons of candy to all of the kids. After the parades, I would let the kids go for free rides and check out my truck.

6.) I would donate money and give to the local humane society and a few other local organizations.

7.) Last but not least, I would buy a guitar. I’ve had a few through the years, but I’ve had to turn around and sell them when money was tight. It would be awesome to play in a band again.

And that’s what I would do if money were no object 🙂
