Hi folks. I've been out of the loop for a little over a week. What with relocating (temporarily) from NY to CA, starting a new job, and staying with my in-laws for a week, I haven't had a chance to come to the board. Now I'm settled in at my sublet and hooked up to AOL. (Incidentally, so far I am not pleased with AOL -- too much interface between the user and the internet. But since I'm only here for 3 months the one month free deal enticed me.)

I'm a little nervous because the change in location and daily routine have threatened my budget this month. So many little unexpected expenses and tempting ways to spend...I know I have to keep coming back to this board to get encouragement to stick to my repayment plan.

Trying hard to stay cheap...

Welcome back, Repo! We missed you.

I'm glad to see that you're somewhat settled and I hope you're getting used to that other coast.

Those unexpected expenses be expected. ;) That's going to happen with a relocation. Just watch out for those rolling blackouts out there! :-)

...but I still am...
