Term life insurance is better right?

February 20th, 2008 at 04:23 pm

I am putting my financial ducks in a row and while I have no kids I do have an elderly parent that I would worry about if something happened to me so I want to be prepared to help her out in the event of my untimely death.

Anyone recommend a company for life insurance?


I would like to change my colors like BA did but when ever I go to select colors wether from my work computer or home I get an error on page message in the lower left hand corner. Anyone else have this problem? How do we fix it? Help!

Also my blog seems to be pretty large right now but i can't figure out the reason why?

Almost Valentines day, catching up

February 12th, 2008 at 01:39 pm

I sent my mom flowers for Valentineís Day. I usually donít do something like that but I had a coupon, plus a website offering 20% off plus no delivery and it was a good deal. They are beautiful flowers and I am sure she is going to love them and be so surprised. I am so happy that I could do it.
Things here are interesting. I am hoping I get money back instead of having to pay but I am afraid I did not have enough taxes taken out for state. Some rough calculations show I am about a 1k in the hole but since taxes are not my thing I am hoping it is ok. I need to find my receipts for the health savings account I had for most of the year. I know I saved them but they are not in my taxes file where I keep all my papers. I am hoping I left them in my desk at work when I faxed them to get the money back. I can remember taking them to work but I do not remember bringing them home again so I hope they are there. It was not a lot of money, only about $500 but I hope I donít have to pay some taxes on that.
Home for work today, thanks Abe! Would have had a four day weekend but was asked at the last minute last week to train a group of people on Monday and so there goes the four day weekend and any hope of going away for a couple of days. My office management is truly amazing, and not in a good way.
I ran into an old friend from high school this past weekend. The first time I met him was in 7th grade. We were friends for a while and then he asked me ďto go steadyĒ. I said no. I continued to say no all through summer camp, each year in high school and the year after he graduated. I ran into him a few years ago after he divorced his wife and we spent some time hanging out but I was dating someone and not interested. Then he was with a girl we knew in high school. I never really cared for her but I hoped they were happy and doing well. Turns out they ended it a year or so ago and he asked me to dinner, as friends. We are going in a couple weeks as we both have business trips coming up and were busy. It will be nice to catch up with him and hear about mutual friends. I am still not interested but it was nice to hear him say he still thought I was as beautiful now as 20 years ago. He is a good guy and I wish I could have feelings for him but I just donít.
