Weekend…

I had a fantastic weekend. We drove through the night on Thursday evening to Tennessee and arrived around 9am for the 2pm graduation. The graduation was short and sweet and I probably spend about $30 while I was down there.

We drove through the night on Saturday and got home around 5:30am Sunday morning for the 2pm wedding. The wedding was beautiful. I gave the bride and groom $150 which covered our plates at the reception and gave a modest gift ~ $25. I went back and forth with the amount of the gift and this amount is what I was comfortable giving.

There is no doubt that this month hit the Efund hard...down to about $500. I am going to collect myself, dust myself off and have a terrific rest of the year.

Macy’s contacted me about setting up an interview so I need to go online and see what that process is all about. No bites yet on the Roomate site.

I'm glad you had a wonderful weekend. It's always nice to get away for a little bit.

Best wishes for the Macy's interview. Remember, whatever job you take, be smart and focused with the money. It's for a dedicated source, use it for that source.

Third, spend some time re-evaluating what a true emergency is. Your fund is down to $500, and the only real emergency I recall is the car, which your parents paid for. I know you've said you're working on it, but your reserve is down for reasons that are not really helpful to you in the long run.
