I didn't have a late fee

I'm really happy about that. Especially since the fee is $100. I couldn't be mad at the school if they would have charged it. I knew the payment was due and by waiting until the last minute, it totally slipped my mind.

I had better not make a habit of doing that because most companies will definitely charlge that fee.

I may have to pay a late fee!

I'm not happy about it but it's my own dumb fault. I was procrastinating and trying to pay a bill at the very last minute. The day it was due, I planned on paying it after I got home from work. Great plan except I forgot to pay the darn bill! I did pay it the next morning. I'll have to wait a few days to see if a late fee shows up.

I'm really disappointed in myself right now!

I need to go shopping

I ran out of food. I knew I didn't buy enough when I went shopping last weekend. I grabbed enough fruit but not enough of everything else. That means that instead of spending the entire weekend in the house, I'll get to go out.

I guess that's a plus.

Weddings are expensive

One of my coworkers has a sister that's getting married in June. I think she should wait since she's only 18 but that's another story. Anyway, her family is spending a ton of money on her big day. I've suggested that they use wedding flowers from They use Ecuadorian long stem roses, which are known for the large heads and come in a variety of beautiful colors. I'm sure they'll have the colors that will go with her color scheme, which is some variety of pink.

They also ship overnight express from their grower farms. I'm sure she'll be happy with whatever she gets.

I'm getting a refund!

Yeah I'm so happy about that. I didn't think I would get a refund because I have my exemptions set pretty high. It's pretty cool getting the extra money in each check but it super sucks when you get no refund.

I think it's because I get a credit for school tuition that did it. I really don't care though. This is one of the first time's I've gotten a refund over $500 in a long time. I'm just gonna be happy with it.

I don't even know where to start with the money. But I'm sure I'll find something.

Adsense doesn't pay for me

I haven't even gotten to a payout yet and I've been using Adsense on several blogs for more than 2 years. It's ok I don't really mind though. I have to look at something else to put in that spot. I may put a picture instead of some kind of money click box.

Oh well bigger and better right?

I don't know what to do with my money

Especially right now the way the economy is. Should I invest in the stock market which is dropping like a rock. Invest in treasuries which are yielding next to nothing. Or even just putting the money in my mattress. None sound extremely appealing right now. I have thought about investing my money with Monex for their gold and silver services. Gold was hovering around $900 per ounce the last time I checked. It's a hard asset that easily transportable or I can have Monex arrange for convenient and safe storage at an independent bank or depository company for me. How much more convenient can I get.

I do know that I plan on doing my due diligence before I invest my money anywhere. It just seems like I'm throwing cash away. And I surely don't have enough for that.

Tax time is upon us

Have you done your taxes yet? I haven't. I always wait until the last minute. I don't get a large refund from my federal taxes and I always owe the state between $10 and $60, it depends on how much I get from interest and dividends.

I'm in no hurry to pay the government so I'll wait until the last minute as usual.
