Good day so far

January 9th, 2008 at 11:34 am

I'm in a really good mood today. First off, I got a new cubicle at work. I had my eye on one that had been empty for over a year, and I finally thought to ask my boss if I could move into it. She set it up right away. Now I have a bigger space, two real walls (it's in a corner), and a desk that faces the doorway, so people don't come up behind me anymore (I hate that feeling).

Also, I did a big international wire transfer: I had to put money into the UK account to cover this tax payment we might have to make, plus I'd saved up two of my regular monthly deposits so I'd only have to pay one fee, plus I wanted to deposit some extra to put toward credit card principal. I confirmed this morning what I was surprised to see last night online: The dollar is doing much better against the pound! I deposited $3200 and actually got GBP 1580! I was expecting more like GBP 1490, so I'm really happy. That extra 90 pounds is going straight to credit card principal. I'll have almost paid off one of the cards, and next month it's a goner--along with another that has a really small balance. Next month I'll get to add to my Old Debt Graveyard--woo hoo!

    I love the term "old debt graveyard". I will have to remember that one! Smile

    Really? The dollar is doing better now? Why yes, it has modestly improved, hasn't it? I wonder why.

    Anyway, congrats with your new cubicle. Smile

    Boy, juggling the conversion rate plus the fee plus the actual payment must be a real pain. It will sure be worth it to get rid of those cards and not have to deal with it anymore!
