On my account. I took a pen and some paper lying about at work last night and did a quick summary of what I owe. I remember the days when I used to be so mad at Capital One for only allowing me a thin 200 dollars on a "secured" Capital One MasterCard. Now I call and they compliment me on my loyal and excellent payment history. As well they should. Between the gas cards, the MasterCards, the VisaCards, AmEx card, my margin account at Morgan Stanley, and a thin student loan < 1200 dollars I figure I am..........

Nine thousand six hundred dollars give or take in debt.

And eight thousand of that would be on the charga plates. I imagine I've been a'charging.

Yikes! And yes, I checked the math. I see LOTS of work in my future. Ah well, I was way too fat anyway. Back to the grind.. Maybe a small Happy Dance in August.. I will try..
