(3) Mon Jan 10 2005 19:21 When it rains, it pours...no pun intended: I am so mad, and I have been having a bad week when it comes to finances. No, I take that back...a bad yearly quarter. It is so stressful to try and make ends meet especially when there is poor communication between Aaron and me when it comes to which accounts to use, thus resulting in $75 in overdrafts fees. It makes me so mad b/c the banks don't do anything to deserve my hard earned money. All they do is reject the check and still charge me. What is up with that? At least put the check through if you are going to charge. Stupid! Not to mention one of those charges was Aaron getting gas and buying a quart of milk for his brother-come to find out the charge was only shy of the $1.25 it cost to buy the milk. So we do something nice for someone else buying milk and essentially it cost us $26.25. Sometimes life just sucks. I know I should put things into perspective right now, and it is only money, but I don't want to think rationally right now. I'M MAD!

On the bright side, it's tax season and you'll get a nice refund, what with your newest little "deduction."

Tis true. We are saving up for a down payment on a new house we found in TX. Hopefully the loan goes through. We plan on building a 3 bed 2 bath 1319 Sq Ft for 96k plus upgrades. You can afford a nice house in SA. I am amazed at how cheap it is.I am getting over the overdraft fees. I was pretty mad last night though.

It is too bad. You could just tell them that you are going somewhere else, but that is also such a hassel. Having your own home will be nice, though.
