Feeling kind of blah

Hey everyone! Sorry that I have not posted in awhile, sometimes I get into what I guess we would call a rut for lack of a better word, and I just can't think of what to write about! Not to mention this past week and a bit has been fairly exhausting. One of the ladies at work was on holidays, and we got a new girl to basically replace her, but she was new to the company and well its just not the same as having someone that knows what they are doing. This led to me and the other full time girl not always being able to take a break because we could not leave the new girl alone. It doesn' t seem that bad at the time, but after awhile it catches up with you, and you really feel it.

Anyways, in regards to the supposed ING scam, it actually wasn't. I ended up calling them back, via the customer service number listed on the website and explained what happened. I was told it was a legit phone call, and I was prompted once again to enter my pin number on the phone. This time I did, and then I was informed they just wanted to talk to me about my mutual funds to make sure I was really aware of the risk involved, because in my "investor profile" I guess the timeline I had picked for when I wanted to take out the money was a little short and they wanted me to be fully aware of the risks involved. So I was like yeah ok whatever, I am aware thank you very much. lol

In regards to my tax refund, the reason I got more back than I expected was because they found some unused education credits from previous years and applied them. So instead of getting $150 back I actually got $341. This all went to my student loan, which enabled me to pay what is so far over $600 towards my loan this month.

My spending this month has been pretty bad I must admit. I also have not really done that well on my goals. I won't really comment that much until the end of the month when I can see the final result, but I know its bad. lol

Anyways, I am off tomorrow, which is going to be a well needed day of rest. I am planning on just relaxing, reading some books I got from the library and just getting rested up because tomorrow I am going out with some girls from work. Even though I have to work Saturday morning, I'm going to suck it up and go out, because we hardly ever get the opportunity to go out together so I'm definately going to take part whenever I can! Even though I am not excited for the lack of sleep, I am excited for a girls night out, drinking and dancing the night away. I definately need a night like this!
