I resisted!!!

June 11th, 2009 at 07:05 am

Yesterday, I had been thinking about going to pizza hut for dinner. I know that I don't have the money for it...but was going to go anyway and then worry about covering the check later.(This is part of my problem!) I had already made up my mind and was going to go! But I didn't! I went home instead and made a salad! I was very proud of myself. I know that this is the decision I should have made and I shouldn't be proud of doing the right thing, but it is hard for me to resist.

Put $10 worth of gas in my car yesterday and today. Just enough to get me through until tomorrow. Man, I hate being like this. Good news is that according to the budget I have laid out, I will be out of this mess by the end of July...since July is a 3 paycheck month. I can't wait!

Finance company called for DH again last night. Said that he needed to call before it went any further legally...I am thinking how much further could it go??? You already turned it in to the sheriff as if he was hiding the car(NOT!!) So I am thinking that they didn't indeed turn it into the sheriff. That would be good!

That same collection agency that I have been dealing with called me yesterday about a different account. I told them that I had made a payment with a note telling them how I intended to make payments...she said no on authorized that. I said I know, but that is all I can do. She verified the last 4 of my social and said thank you. As if that is going to scare me! Put it on my credit report....still doesn't mean that I have any more money to give you!

All in all, I am feeling pretty upbeat given the daily cirmcumstances right now. I see a light at the end of the tunnel if I can just get there!!!

    What a coincidence--I was at a pizzaria with friends, having a glass or two of wine. Even though I'd eaten a filling meal before, I started getting hungry by the end of the night. But instead of buying an appetizer, I went home and made ramen noodles. Yay for both of us!

    Good for you! Prepared food is really tempting if you're tired, under pressure, etc.

    Congrats on not caving in! It feels good, right?

    Great job! And btw I see that you are in North, GA. If I lived up there, the N. GA Premium Outlets would be a constant temptation for me Smile In fact, I live in Atlanta and they are still tempting!

    CCF...it does feel good!
