Not Much Going on Today

April 1st, 2008 at 09:21 pm

So here I go making a commitment to start blogging again and then I spend a day not actually doing anything. Well, I didn't spend money on my day of not actually doing anything, so I suppose that's something.

I have a cold, with a nasty throbbing stuffed up head, which curtailed me driving anywhere but to the school and back today. I had planned on going to the bank and getting money for the kids allowances, going to the chiropractor and paying for a month in advance on the family plan, maybe stopping by the grocery store, but that didn't work out at all. So, no spend day.

I transferred the $2000 from ING to my local credit union for the car payment and it should show up by Thursday which is when DH gets home and we go look at the Escape one more time. I think it's pretty much a given that we will buy it, but we didn't want to rush the decision.

DH is sending me the revised figures of the new take home pay so I can finish the budget and the new 401K access info. Our 401K changed from Vanguard to something else a few months ago. I wasn't happy with that. I like Vanguard. I trust Vanguard. I know nothing about this other group. But the fees are supposed to be lower which meant the company was willing to match an additional 1% at 50% on the dollar, so I can't complain too much. As long as it does a decent job. Just don't know yet.

    I'm curious as to who this new 401k company is....

    Feel better!

    I too would be frustrated if they moved away from Vanguard.

    Good luck on the car deal.

    I like the Escape. OD rented one and really liked it when she had to drive up into the snow. Good luck with all of it and get better!

    BA--I can't remember what it's called at the moment. My brain is operating on safety mode.

    Lux and scfr--Thanks.

    homebody--we drove one as a rental once and really liked it, but having it be a hybrid will be even better, I think.
