Lazy Weekend

August 24th, 2008 at 07:51 pm

Did not get much done this weekend. I will try and catch up this week. But I have a lot going on this week, including my dog's surgery on Wednesday.

Weekend Plans

August 22nd, 2008 at 12:35 pm

Not much really. School restarts in a few weeks, so I will just take it easy. Weekends are especially harder though due to my recent "separation" due to lack of getting act together in BF's part (what he likes to call "break up" because I refuse to understand) /whatever.

However I have 2 dvds from the library and Olympics to watch.

I will also be doing a lot of organization and menu planning. Also a lot of financial planning and budgeting. Oh, and some exercising.

My dog has to have a surgery

August 17th, 2008 at 11:37 am

to remove some grown in his eyelids because it's pushing into his cornea. It will probably happen sometime next week. He has to go under anesthesia so had some blood work done today. Cost me a total of 264, but it was including his yearly shots. They are supposed to call me with the estimate for the surgery some time later.

Once he's had the surgery, he's going to have to wear a cone for 10-12 days.

Here's hoping the insurance will cover parts of it.

Trying to keep up

August 13th, 2008 at 09:04 am

It's been a while since I blogged. So I just wanted to say hello. There have been major changes professionally and personally and I am just trying to keep up with all these changes. So it's been a little stressful. Being so stressed, it appears makes me spend money, so I will have to be careful about that.
All in all, I am just tired and need a vacation. But then vacation costs money too!!

Roth vs Traditional IRA and 401K etc

August 1st, 2008 at 06:46 am

I have 20K+ in my old 401K. We can move it to our own IRA or move it to the new 401K. I thought you were not allowed to have both the traditional IRA and 401K at the same time? I thought if you had 401K, you had to have a ROTH IRA? Egad! Any resources I can read up on????
