I got probably the best news I have heard in a while, today. My step-mom calls me up and says “Your father and I would like to help you with your dentist appointment next week.” You see, I have to have a crown replaced and after insurance, it’s going to cost me about $350. SO, I say, “What do you mean?” and my S-M says “Your father would like to pay for the dental appointment, call the dentist, let them know what he wants to do, and give me the number for him to call. He wants to use his Visa to get the miles.” (They just went on their honeymoon to Hawaii and didn’t pay a thing for airfare.) That’s like FREE MONEY!!!! I can pay off my credit cards this month. WOOHOO!!!!
One of my friends has been thinking about paying off some debt. We have been talking about this for a while, and I think I’ve helped him decide to start an Emergency fund. Matter of fact, he showed me some Jet-ski’s on ebay that he really wanted. He just told me that he talked himself out of it. Want to hear the reason? He didn’t want to insure them. Not a good choice. I’m glad he didn’t buy them, but that’s not the right reason. I wanted to hear that he didn’t want to buy them because he’s trying to get out of debt. To each his own, I suppose.
That’s all for now. I’ll write more later, I think.
