Well it’s another week and another dollar and as you can tell by the title of this article it’s been a tough one.  If you read my article last week about credit card problems you may know how I’ve dealing with credit card debt and what I’m doing to get back on track with my finances.

Well it seems their has been a few wrenches thrown into the plan as I just received another $1300 medical bill and to boot I just found out yesterday that I had a crack in my radiator on my truck and that it will run me an additional $320 to fix that as well.

So what else could go wrong?

On the bright side of things my online business has been picking up some steam and my earning have been increasing.  Earning extra cash online has been the one thing that has helped me get most of my debt paid down and do a lot of other things like building my new house.

Speaking of earnings you may have noticed I didn’t post an article on my niche site this week.  I left this week open to let people check up but I’ll have a new article on the series coming next week.  If you’ve been following along with that series how far are you?  I’d like to get some feedback on how things are going so far.

Video Of The Week

This week I thought I would share a video that is sure to get a few laughs titled How The Wizard of Oz Should Have Ended. One thing I like to do when things tense especially with my finances is that I like to unwind a bit and relax and do something that takes my mind of things for a bit.  So enjoy the video.

    The funny part about the problem with the radiator was that I Was only looking to fix a burned out blinker light before my brother, the mechanic, told me that the radiator had a bad crack in it. I guess I could kind of look at it as a blessing in disguise because I could have overheated my engine and burned the motor up, so $320 is better than replacing a vehicle at this point. Thanks for your support Grayson.
