No, I’m not talking about the sequel to the 70’s TV program “What’s Happening” featuring Rerun and his friends. I’m just updating a few things that have happened since I last posted.
I got a ticket on Friday which will cost me $126. If I go through diversion to keep the ticket off my record it will be an additional $20. I plan on doing that since I haven’t had a ticket in the last 10 years and I would like to keep my MVR spotless. I probably could have avoided this ticket if I would have just agreed with the officer and not argued with him but I thought the officer was wrong and still do. I’m not sure if being right is worth $146 though.
I’ve decided to go ahead and pay off my credit card even though it is at 0%. My balance is down to $424 and I think I should be able to pay it off next month. The ticket and some other extra expenses I have next month will make it tight to have enough money to pay off the card though. If I can’t get the card paid off next month it isn’t a big deal since the card will be at 0% until January.
I bought clothing for the first time this year yesterday. I bought a couple pairs of swim trunks to double as running shorts at Target. They were on clearance and the total for both of them was right at $12 with tax.
