|I may be crude at times, but I would not|
One thing I'm officially sick of thinking and talking about? MONEY! For the love! The process of buying a house is mentally draining and I'm now more anxious than normal about saving money. The highlight of my week was being pre-approved for a home loan. Somehow I've got the bank convinced I'm a responsible adult. Suckers ;-)
|I wonder if I can get one of these at|
NOW before I can continue moving forward in the process, I have to meet with a financial counselor (MORE talk about money) next week. I made an appointment for Wednesday but if I have to wait that long, I think I'll end up in a straight jacket. I'm trying to get it over with on Monday but we'll see how that goes. I hate waiting for people to call me back.
I've now been out to see the town homes I'm on the wait list for three times, and we plan on going back on Sunday to get a look at the progress on the inside. They've made a ton of progress, and I decided which one I want (no, but really, not getting my hopes up...)
|I want my porta potty back!|
Speaking of money, I've got something to run by you because it makes no sense to me.
I have two credit cards. They are both 0% interest cards and one of them is going to be charging interest starting in April, but has a "0% interest until 2013 on balance transfers" deal. Now, that's awesome, right? I transfer the other card to this one and continue paying no interest until next year. Sweet! Just to make sure, I talked to someone at the company who let me know that the balance transfer has a 0% APR, but the payments after that will have a 19.99% APR. Umm...what?! How is that a deal and why on God's green earth would anyone sign up for that? No wonder people are in such debt crisis in this country. So, if someone has a balance of $2,000 on their card, they are paying $400 extra dollars in a year that they didn't actually spend?! America, DO YOUR RESEARCH! This puzzles me so much. Yeah, I won't be taking part in that "deal".
This weekend I will be resuming running! If that Daily Mile app over there ---> doesn't reflect at least two running workouts between today and Sunday, I give you permission to come beat me up. Yes, I really just wrote that.
Any fun weekend plans?
Have you ever met with a financial adviser? If so, was it helpful?
Do you know where I can get a money tree?
