A few days ago I got a letter from the company I was using for my home security system. I had the system turned off and I was expecting to pay money to get out of the contract. I was surprised to see they had applied our deposit to the balance and in the end I would owe them only $34. I was really relieved to see I didn't owe them more.

Well, today I got what I thought was another letter from the company. My first thought was, "yep they made a mistake and I actually owe them a lot more." I didn't open the letter for two hours and when I did I was shocked and amazed to see a check for $240!!!! I really am shocked over this. It's money I wasn't expecting but could really use. I am working really hard at taking care of some of my old bills and rebuilding my credit.

I hardly ever buy anything for myself. For example: I am have been wearing the same pair of Crocs for a year. I really should have bought some new ones 6 months ago, but I felt that I shouldn't spend the money.

So I think I am going to take at least part of this extra money and buy myself a couple things I have been wanting for a while. I know the first thing on that list is a new pair of Crocs.

I also wanted to let everyone know that Sadie is doing so much better. It looks like she had a good day and is very calm and relaxed. Oh and there was no throw up to clean up, so I think she is going to be just fine.

I will be doing a post tomorrow on my question I asked you guys. I know I didn't give you a lot of details, but I promise to give more details in my post.

I'm glad Sadie seems to be OK now. I think it was just too much excitement and stress for her.

"Found" money!!! Love it!! Two new pairs of Crocs and a bedspread!!! Maybe even a couple valances or curtain panels for the windows if they are inexpensive. Saw some at Target here today on sale!!

Enjoy feeling not broke for a day or so! :)
