Well, today is payday. Once again, there will be almost no money left. It will all be gone in about 48hours.
Dental bill, food, and putting some away(almost half) to prepare for my marathon trip in October. I would rather have the funds on my credit card right away so that if I find cheap flights I can get them. So, I am socking away a lot of money really fast.
I want to get motorcycle tires too. That will leave me with about $100. Hmm. Can I make that work for 2 weeks? Why not? I can use it for food and fuel. No splurging this payday I guess.
Same with next...
Boy I'm getting tired of being broke within 48hours of payday. But at least I will be broke right away, but I'll have a nice nest egg for my trip. I might even have enough saved up for my trip well before summer at this rate.
In the meantime, I might start to look for extra work. It can't hurt...
Oh yeah. I almost forgot. I got on the scale this morning. It was down to 222.5lbs. A new low! Yippee! The thing that surprises me, TOM is visiting within the next couple of days. I am surpised that my weight dropped right now. Usually it stays stagnant, or even goes up leading up to TOM. I'm going to work my butt off for the next three days or so. See if I can't make that scale take a significant drop when TOM is over!
Yes, I know. TMI warning. TOM is only with me for between 36 and 60 hours. So in about 3 days, this will all be behind me. You might think lucky, but let me tell you, a weeks worth of TOM issues crammed into basically 24hours, with a bit of a warm up leading in. SO not good.
