Back to work today. :bash: I got a nibble on the ticket for the real estate course, and I would like to call her today. I soooo hate the telephone. I would also like to post on my blog, as it has been almost a month, and I'm out of the habit.

I sold my ticket to the real estate course! And I entered receipts and reconciled my checkbook. And I canceled Direct TV! :D

Hmmm. Direct TV was not canceled, as they offered to credit us for the time that it hasn't been working, and give us a free service call ($79.95 credit). I guess we'll wait until September to cancel. They charge you $20 for each month left in your contract if you cancel early. :shock:

Received a very unexpected, substantial check in the mail today. I'm going to keep the dog toys in my financial corner. :D

Must enter receipts, balance account, deposit check, and update financial spreadsheets today. If I don't do this every few days, I get off track. :roll:

Received state & federal tax refunds today - deposited into IRA and mutual fund accounts. Later today I will return items I do not want to the store. Will also continue researching resale shops for clothing and collectibles.

I entered the receipts, balanced the bank account, deposited the check, and updated the financial spreadsheet. Discovered along the way that we have accumulated half of the earnest money needed to start building our new house! A pleasant surprise to say the least. :D

mango and cha, such good progress. Dog toys - yes you need to keep them. I've got a waste bin in that area and it hasn't done me any harm either :D I haven't done anything for a while. Conveniently avoiding the claiming back interest forms as they are way too complicated to be bothered with at the moment.

Transferred money from my PayPal account (eBay sales) to my savings account. :D
