Everything changes so fast

April 2nd, 2010 at 07:57 pm

Well, the first quarter of 2010 is behind us already. The recap:
Good News: Got a big raise recently that make a huge impact on the savings front. We plan on socking away the difference and replacing my hubby's truck (he drives a '94). Will replace with another good used truck with no car payment. Because I am allergic to car payments.

Bad News: Medical debt reached $2K in 1st quarter due to a recent leukemia diagnosis. No treatment yet as stage is early. Repeat work ups every 3 months but I have met my deductible so....

You never know what life is going to give you. You just have to take it in stride. That is my philosophy.

Today anyway.

    Chronic lymphocytic? I am sorry. I have a friend who was diagnosed about 5 years ago. You are right though, we never know.

    We have an 1989, 1998 and 2005 year Chevy trucks. Weird I know.... (I drive a 1999 Camry purchased with cash used).

    Homebody-Yes. CLL. I am only 38 so the "younger" age is concerning to the onco. But feeling well right now and trying not to dwell.

    I like to spend about $4k on a new used truck fro hubby. It would serve its purpose of getting him back and forth to work and occasionally hauling junk to the dump :-)

    Good job on avoiding the car payment, that is wise. I am sorry to hear about the medical issue, but at least the insurance deductible is met, so that is a good thing. Keep that chin up!
