Whoops, sorry about that

September 26th, 2007 at 06:09 pm

I got shanghied by another website [url]www.whofic.com[/url] called A Teaspoon and an Open Mind and have been off playing with them all week, since I had a cold and didn't want to think about reality. But reality is back and 20,263 words of fanfic later, and an empty spot in my head where a story used to be, I'm back to reality and blogging again.

Oh, I'll still play over there, but it won't be as time consuming. Anyone into Doctor Who and Firefly there is an amazing crossover story called Out of Joint. I usually don't like fanfic crossovers but this one is just done so amazingly well. Especially River and the Doctor, though there was a good bit between mechanic Kaylee and the Doctor's TARDIS. But I digress.

So, bills so far this week:

$1000.00 to medical debt
$1000.00 to Chase (last card)
$ 129.50 to BoA (leftover interest, but now its clear)
$ 9.58 to Citi (leftover interest, now clear)
$ 100.00 to the gas card
$ 200.00 to groceries and toiletries
--------
$2439.08

Otherwise its been a pretty low spend, low key week. We haven't done much since I was getting over the cold.

DH comes home tomorrow, finally. I haven't seen him in a month. There will be some spending as we are going out to eat at a nearby restaurant while we get a new car stereo installed.

I am starting to settle in to this new payraise DH has and I feel so much better about everything. Life has gotten a whole lot easier in the financial ring, but I really want to make sure we maintain our focus on getting out of debt and building up the EF. I am so close to $2000 and then after that I want to build it up to $2600 and that will be half a month's wages saved.

I haven't done much in the survey area this week. Too much time spent writing and reading instead. But I'm pretty close to cashing out again with Global Test Market for a $50 check. I think I need just 50 points to do so. So time to refocus and get on with it.

I've missed being around here and now I need to go and get caught up with you folks!

    Well, it sounds like it was a good break for you! Hey, I took off several months from here. Wink We all need some R&R and whofic.com would be that, in my mind!

    Glad you're back!

    A break is nice. We missed you!

    And in my experience the first few weeks after a pay raise is a dangerous time. Everything looks so much more open, including your wallet.

    Hey! Ive read that one! And I love that website!

    Although, my heart belongs to Nine. Forever. So there. Smile
    And ooh, did you write something? What did you write?

    Alianora--I wrote A Life Unexpected (10/Rose/Torchwood), Elements of Rose, and am in the process of writing Just Another Shop Girl (9/Rose/Jack). It's fun. And I even got 78 positive reviews on the first one and no negatives. I was pretty happy.

  5. alianora Says:

    oooh, exciting! I write...entirely too many fandoms. My current main is Firefly, and has been for two years. I just cant stop! I love meeting other authors in more "mainstream" places.

    And Ill take a look at your stories later. Smile
