More challenge money

February 6th, 2008 at 04:52 pm

Despite predictions that it wouldn't sell, someone bought my husband's brand spankin' new -- and drastically ugly -- jacket on eBay, so I'm adding $13.29 to the challenge. The new total is $1,208.37.

    I do like reading your blog. I like the duality of it. One hand we are talking about 6 figure debt and 6 figure savings account and the next entry talking about no spend days and adding 13.29 to the $20 challenge.

    You are making a good effort at changing your mindset about money. Keep it up. One day at a time.

    Thank you for your support, fellow Friend of Bill (or whoever the guy was who started the whole 12-step movement).

    There's a confident writing style and some education behind all of it which makes it intriguing, too;

    do you know what you charged and, aside from the stepson's college education, where it is now?

    My VISA bill -- hmmmm. It's from last August and I think it went to concert tickets and dining out. Nothing tangible that I remember.

    My late husband's: 1400...was 1700$....oh who knows. I have the biggest collection of obsolete software in the universe.

    These blogs REALLY make me re-think SO much.

    Let's see ... I charged $10,000 in lawyer fees so my husband could respond to his ex-wife who had hauled him back into court so we would pay for my stepson's choice of college (we lost, obviously). I also charged 4 trips home a year for the above-mentioned stepson for each of the four years he was in college (also ordered by the judge). Then there were all his living expenses not covered by the student loans (also mandated by the judge).

    At the time that all this was going on, I wasn't working because I was staying home with my then-infant/toddler daughter I refuse to let anyone else raise. Thus, all the charging.

    However, to be fair, I got really, really, really ticked off at the judge and my husband's ex-wife when we had to pay for things like partying disguised as dinner's out at Bennigan's, $100 sunglasses and Rogaine (the adult kid is balding prematurely). So in the height of my anger, I charged a couple really nice vacations and a bunch of stuff for my daughter. Showed them, didn't I.....
