Weekly money Check-Up

1. The most I’ve spent this last week was on money at the arcade.
2. Today I feel frustrated towards money.  I read Fabulously Broke's posting about net worth and calculated that I should only be $-17.850.00 in the whole. And I am definitely no were near that number. Frankly I would be happy to be at 0 in my net worth. At least it would mean that I was either debt free or hand enough cash to balance out my debt. I am frustrated because I want to be able to provide my sister an alternative option and I can't... not in my financial situation. 
3. Money can’t buy happiness. One free/inexpensive thing I did last week that made me happy was I went salsa dancing and had a wonderful time.
4. I will consider this week a success if I got to see my friend which i have blown off twice for family emergencies and if I can get 2 shelfs catalogued... ideally I would like 4 done but that might not be realistic.
5. Today I am thankful for my sister being ok... I know I can't always understand God's decisions but last night he answered my prayers in a most interesting manor. Now if only He could help me straiten out my dad's attitude. 

Today has been a very hard day and I am not really interested in talking about it, so thank you to MPP for having this weekly questionnaire I definitely needed it to fill the void today.  


  1. Some days we just feel like that, chin up. Tomorrow will be better....

  2. I am sorry! I didn't mean for the post to make you feel bad at all. Things will get better, you're moving towards the right direction, not digging yourself under.

  3. FB don't feel bad its not a bad thing. I enjoyed reading the post I found it interesting. However, it is depressing. More than anything i am impatient when it comes to money... I want it all to be solved and sorted out. Its not something I can snap my fingers and say leaned my lesson make it go away. I am not not a very patient person when I have other things I would rather be doing with the money, like investing and buying a house.
