OMG, I lost it all!

December 31st, 2011 at 04:07 pm

I just composed a long post, summing up my spending in December and in 2011, and how it compared to 2010. And it disappeared!

Oh, well spared you all the reading, I guess. To put it succinctly, I spent about $2000 more this year than last, and most of it can be ascribed to medical expenses, car repair, and more spent on travel.

I actually did a lot better on gifts, so my cheapness paid off. Also spent less on clothes, haircuts, even gas and groceries. So I am heading in the right direction, and I can't really blame myself for the big surprises that pop up.

Yesterday I had to buy a $20 cooling pad for my computer, but I am sure it's my last expenditure of year.

In other news, I lost two more pounds.

Happy New Year, everyone!

Oh, and I forgot to add, a recent upsurge in the market has lifted my net worth, which increased $1479 in 2011. Better than going down!

    That is the worst. For the record, I would have read your long post!

    It's happened to me a few times, so it's not you. There's some bug in the system.

    So what was your total spending for the year? I'd be curious to compare it my own.

    Do you not hate that!!!! I've learned to hit "Copy" before posting due to how many times this has happened to me!

    I have learned to "save as draft" every paragraph or two.

    I would have read your post to the end, too. I know others do so much better than me, so I like to see exactly how much better. It helps me keep saying to myself "OK, there is room for improvement here. I know I can do a little better."

    Congrats on the two lbs!

    Ditto on the weight loss congrats Smile
    I've lost too many LONG posts - very frustrating.

    Its happened to me too. If its a long post, I've been known to pull up notepad or wordpad and type on that. It happens to me when I accidentally click away from the form and then come back - in Access speak, I'd change the focus.

    Happy New Year, CB!

    I've got your list and emailed you back - you have 12 names, but we play with 10. Let me which two you'd like to withdraw.
