3 years...

Three years ago today my mom died. I spent last bawling and have cried sporadically today. I didn't think it would be so hard this many years later. I think hurts more now than it did when she died because I had my husband, dad, and family. All I have left is my husband and I feel alone in this world. Does it ever get easier?

AT&T, I dislike you!

I have spent almost an entire hour this morning on the phone with AT&T wireless. That 50 minute phone call was bad enough, but the worst part was the customer service rep barely spoke English and would get upset with me each time I couldn't understand what he was saying in his very thick accent!

Anyways, on with the problem. I have an app on my iPhone that allows me to set up automatic payments to them. Well I had a payment set to go out yesterday since I got paid. It paid the bill in full for January. Well this mining I got a text from my bank stating AT&T had taken out $181!! I was really confused about that amount because my bill is always $147. I called them as I was driving to work and found out they signed me up for automatic bill payment and averaged my bills to $181. Grr! They refused to refund me my money, but cancelled the automatic bill payment. At least I won't have to pay the bill in march! Oh, how I miss Verizon!

Still alive!

Still alive! Just temporarily forgot about the blog. We've kept up with out plan to not spend excessively. All the bills have been paid on time and without late fees. We haven't went out to eat or shopped for anything except groceries. We did go to Winter Jam 2012 in Evansville. The tickets were $20 total for both of us, we got two CDs for $10 total, & bought two sodas and a water for $13.50! My hubby did get a raise and it'll bring in about $200 extra a month and that'll go directly into the EF for a while. Hope all is well!
