Monday = Good day (for once)

Today was a monumental day for yours truly. I realized that, after this month's payments, I will be 100% credit card debt free. Holy moses. This has been a LONG time coming. Almost ten years, to be exact. I will still have my car loan to contend with, but I am thrilled to finally be out of the clutches of the evil credit card companies and their oppressive interest rates. *wipes sweat from brow* Hard work, it was.

Here's the best part: One of my cards had a $1.39 balance remaining. The company (Citi who will remain nameless) was unwilling to waive the small amount. I asked the lady helping me if I could make a payment by phone. She laughed, and told me that certainly, I could...if I wanted to pay a $14.95 charge for doing so. Yeah. I think not. I'll waste a stamp and a check and mail my payment, thank you very much. Still, I had to laugh. They nickel and dime you any damn way they can. Rat bastards.

My new job is still great and I really think I'm starting to get the hang of it. YAY!

I had one hell of a workout today after a long day of sitting. It hurt, but it also felt great. Tomorrow morning may be a different story....

Anyways, it's funny how the rest of the day is just like buttah when you have a good morning. Here's to Tuesday! =)
