Kerri,
Glad to see you are back and posting!!It's been too quiet here. I hope things will be better for you from now on. I'll share my horror story of yesterday with you.
I had to take my Mom to the doctor and it required a lot of waiting,so of course, I headed to the instant ticket machines. I started out winning $40 which quickly turned into nothing. I then borrowed $40 from my son's money envelope he keeps at home. I turned that into $40 again and paid him back $25. I told him what I had done and he was just miserable to me all the way home from school. We got out of the car and he grabbed his backpack and dropped my brand new sneakers and his brother's backpack right into the mud. I was furious. He went in the house and I took off with what was left of his money and managed to lose it all. now I owe him $60. I feel so stupid!! I have to borrow from a credit card to pay him back. I am tired of the gambling/credit card cycle and would like to put it all behind me and have a savings account. I will try!!!!
Connie
