Down to 2 candidates. Let the s*** fly, obviously. Although, it was a pretty dumb remark on Obama's part to say that the "private sector is doing just fine" and his apparent idea that to fix the economy, we must hire more government workers. This is the problem. We don't need a bigger government, we need a smaller one. I shell out about $800 or more per month to the various levels of government, the Federal government taking the largest portion of it.
I don't mind paying taxes, I do mind paying that much in taxes. I would be happy if they took maybe half of that figure out. I am beginning to feel like we are into this "taxation without representation" scenario simply because our representatives do whatever they please once they get into office. They do not listen to their constituents. They get to Washington and fall into the same old routine that's been going on for at least decades.
Whatever. Hump day. After spending all that money on the trailer and getting it moved, my savings account is going back up faster than I anticipated. If I don't touch it before August and continue having the automatic withdrawals, there will be at least close in there to cover an entire trip to San Diego. Well close anyway, lol, now that I just looked at a calendar.
As much as I hate to do it, I also paid off the second 401k loan. It isn't paying it off that is bad, it's tapping into it that is bad. It won't be "tappable" until this time next month. But, I am not going to leave myself exposed, if something happens and I don't have any other resources available to cover whatever - it would have to be an emergency to get into that money such as a broken AC unit on the house which better not happen since I already paid for that thing to be repaired once in replacing the compressor - but just saying if there was an emergency, I have to be able to cover it somehow. The loan was down to $59. There is a 30-day waiting period before you can take out another one. I do not need, at this point, to take out another loan and I really don't want to do it, so I just hope that nothing goes extremely foul anytime soon.
Well, work day here. Slated to be - 109 today. Lovely. NOT.
