Hey Sizz; I'm doing the same thing right now with my credit card. I'll make no more purchase with it, ever! Somehow, that debt went from zero to about 7,000. I know I didn't make many purchases on it. In any case, the debt is being regularly paid and will dissapear in a few years. And about that dad-advice thing. Mine tried to instill the same phillosophy in me. He succeded. But the rest of my crew had to learn the hard way. In any case, they will do without some luxuries as the debt is paid.

For every action, there is an opposite and equal reaction. And for you less technical types, for every choice, there is a consequence, good or bad.

I hope we can all exercise wisdom in our choices.

We learned years ago how much we could do without. If we want it, then we save for it. When the time comes for retirement..you tighten the belt and learn to get along with what you have.

May I always be the person my dog thinks I am.

Been looking for you and now I know what happened! Had me kind of worried but I have faith that all was going to be okay with you. It still will. I have had my headache and shared my upset with everyone. Only someone who has experienced the same kind of disappointment can relate. I am hoping everything will be okay. I sure do appreciate everyone's comments when my headache started. I just don't believe how it happens. As I told everyone must be some kind of test. I feel I passed because everything seems so much more calm now. But I sure won't forget.

it sure is nice to be debt free for the time......its nice to have that extra money and not have to worry about that next bill coming in. Although we will be paying for dads utilities while we stay here....they aren't much at all though......he'll argue over that but I get the bills so I'll just convent. go pay them before he can argue about it.

In The Kitch.....not sure what you were referring to. I haven't gotten to read all the posts since I went off line awhile back but I'll try to catch up on some more today and maybe I'll see what your referring to. Anyway, I hope alls ok now.

Se non supporta il calore, vattene dalla cucina!
