Man, I didn't recognised my blog at all. It looks so different.

It's nice but I think it will take me a bit of time to get used to this new set up.

Smart meter

March 21st, 2010 at 11:44 pm

We are about to get our electric meter change to smart meter. I think we are one of the first area that will be getting it in our state.

They say that this will be more accurate and that we won't have a guy coming in to our property every three months.

I don't know how this will affect our electric bill. According to the power company we will get a more accurate reading and therefore it will be cheaper. Of course they would say that. But obviously, this change will cost money and I have no doubt that it will be us consumers that will have to pay for it in the end.

Reminder notice

March 18th, 2010 at 03:05 am

Just received a reminder notice for gas bill. Apparently we are 1 month over due. What the? Where the heck is the actual bill? Plus gas bill is normally due every other month, so it should have been due this month not last month.

This month sux - car problems, health issues and now this. I can't wait for this month to be over.

On the positive, we should be getting extra income this month because of dividends and should also be receiving some money owing to us.

Car Problem

March 16th, 2010 at 11:36 pm

We are having car problem at the moment. Frown This is the bad news. Although my March car challenge is looking pretty good right now since the car haven't been used at all this month, it's not working. There's not much I can do about it but laugh really.

The repair cost a lot and our car fund has deflated. We are now seriously looking at getting another slightly newer car. We got a lot to think about at the moment. I really don't want to get another car yet but it might be the best course of action for us.

I feel like we are spending/ wasting a lot of money this year, we really need to get our act together. Here's hoping the rest of the year will be better.
