Weekend Trip, and New Clothing Expense

March 6th, 2023 at 07:56 pm

Before I left on my weekend trip, I felt a painful spot between my breast and my armpit. I wasn't too worried, but I went to Immediate Care to have it checked out. The doctor verified what I already thought -- that it wasn't really a lump, it was irritation from the underwire in my bra. She suggested that I replace my bras with better fitting ones with no wires. So in the next few days I bought six wireless bras, very comfortable and yet supportive (Bali Comfort Revolution). The total cost was $143, or about $24 each. If you've shopped for bras recently, you'll realize this was a very good price. That's why I bought six when I had the chance. This was an unexpected expense, but oh well.

The cost of my trip to Indiana was $67, for gas and food. I also did a little fun thrift store shopping for $19, buying a hoodie, a gift, and a few things for the house. 

I came home to find my property tax bill in the mailbox - $561 (semi-annual payment) and then when I checked my bank account I saw that had withdrawn my subscription fee, which is now $229. I was going to cancel this year, but obviously I did not get on that soon enough. So I'm feeling a little overwhelmed.

Anyway, my trip was fun, and the play -- Guys and Dolls -- was so good! It was hard to believe it was a high school production! Way above my expectations!

    CB, if you call Ancestry now, they will probably process a cancellation for you.

    I had the ‘world’ membership and converted down to ‘US only’ and they processed the change and the credit immediately.

    If they won’t pro rate a cancellation, you can at least cancel going forward so you don’t have to remember in 6 months.
    All the research you did stays in place, I think. I think you can update based on facts you ‘know’ too because your tree is available to others. You just are limited in what you can search for. You can confirm this when you call.

    I pick genealogy up and put it down often. I don’t mind paying because the work they do to digitize and store records is something I am happy to support. But if money gets tight, it would be one of my first things to go.

    I attend theater productions at the community college where I used to work, and they are terrific!

    Thanks, LOI! I've decided I will stick with the membership. At least for one more year. There is still a lot of work to do, I just need to remember to do it!
