Now its paid off (honest) & this and that.

June 18th, 2011 at 06:27 pm

I can go online now and see that as of Friday, the mortgage balance is now $0. For course they had to tack on some type of documentation fee of $65. Errrr, really??? Someone always has their hand grabbing for your money, don't they?

On my mystery medical bill, the doctor's billing person said it wasn't done right, and they will fix that, after I fax them the bill (which I did). Hmmmm, I suspect I'll have to contact them again - it never goes away that easy.

Today was nice weather, yet yard sales were sparse, to put it mildly. Is there a holiday I wasn't told about? I spent $2, yet I found a dollar bill near my car, so total outlay was $1. Yeah, I can afford that.

Went to the car dealership today, but they didn't have the cars they said they had in stock online. Almost felt like a bait & switch. Seriously, the lot out front looked half empty. I went to do a test drive on a used car, and as the saleman got the car to the side of the showroom for me to get in, another saleman comes out and says that car was just sold. WTF??!! Is this the new reality with car sales? BTW, this was a Hyundai dealership, so I'm not sure the Japanese problems should have any effect on them.

The $40 gas gift card arrived today. Unfortunately I needed gas yesterday (I was on fumes), so this will have to wait to be used for a week or two.

Oh well, if this is the worst of my complaints on life, I should be happy. Right?

    Congratulations, what do you intend to do with the money you used to send to the mortgage every month?

    And how about some more details on your girlfriend? Where did you two meet, etc.? Yes, I'm nosey.

    Extra money will go to paying off a new (to me) car I will buy soon. Not sure when, or how much, so that remains to be seen. After that... I'm not sure. Probably some investments (more dividend stocks anyone?), but that will have to wait until next year I'm afraid.

    Girlfriend is an old flame from my college days. I found her on a social networking site a few months ago, and we hit it off just like back then, this time its more intense however. She lives close enough we can meet in person from time to time, and we communicate daily online. We're more mature now (duh) and realize we shouldn't have gone our seperate ways before. Dang, thats a long time between dates.

    DH and I asked the same thing about it being a holiday we didn't know about - there just weren't many yard sales at all!

    I HATE car shopping. With a passion. :/

    What a nice story! Best of luck to you both.

    Ahhh, the mystery medical bills are a huge pain... even worse when there is an insurance company as a third party to get involved! I hope your fax leads to a speedy and thorough resolution.
