Glad a Holiday weekend is coming up...

And I actually get this one off, which is something rare. But what I'm really looking forward to is Friday. Ya see, I get paid every other Monday. Last time I got paid, the van broke down that day and most of my paycheck went towards getting it fixed, which left an already strained budget almost non-existent. LOTS of peanut butter and bologna. (And a special thank you for an unmentioned member that sent me $30 and told me to shut up and accept it ) But with this coming Monday being a payday and a holiday, the banks will be closed...which means I'll get paid Friday before the holiday. Hopefully if anything goes wrong with the van again it'll be one of those $3 pieces to repair it.

I hope you won't have trouble with the van. It was good of the member to send you $30. Some people are the salt of the earth on here.

Don't borrow trouble. You will get paid, and nothing will go wrong with the van. Think positively.

I'm out of peanut butter; dang it @JolietJake . My SS check should (maybe) hit the bank Friday BUT it will probably sit in pending until Tuesday because of the holiday and my bank isn't open on Saturday's.

Finger crossed, I hope you are not going to have problems this time and you can eat something different from peanut butter and Bologna... I guess that Scar had his favorite food.

About this time last year it got stuck in drive, a little $3 clip had broken on the transmission linkage which I fixed myself...I wish everything could be that cheap

@JolietJake I need to take the Miata in for its 1st oil change and service. My husband opted to just add $$ to the monthly lease payments to include the cost of all of that. I just hit 5000 miles now and I got the thing at the end of Dec.

Keep your fingers crossed that the van doesn't break down again. And if it doesn't, treat yourself to a fine meal and splurge on Spam and Vienna Sausages!

I have to work part of this weekend, but I'm glad that you get it off, plus you get paid. Sweet that another member reached out to you like that, so kind.

Glad payday has finally arrived for you. I know how you feel. It has been a struggle being off work on sick leave. Things get tight. I had a few people lend me money to help me with my car inspection and meds. Once I finally get back to work it will take me some time to get caught up. I hope nothing goes wrong with your van this time around and enjoy your long weekend.
