Yes, I AM LUCKY

August 3rd, 2008 at 12:38 am

But I also have been careful.

Yesterday at work a friend, who hates her job more than I do, used that phrase to describe what I am doing. She can't quit or even go to a lower paying job because she and DH need every penny just to pay the bills. I feel for her but she has been living on the edge for so long now it has just become her way of life. Big mortgage, big car payment on gas hog SUV a camper & a boat.

I hope things work out for her, she is so young...

I played a Texas Hold-em freeroll tourney tonight, got 116th out of 1015 players, not too shabby for my first ever tourney. For those of you who don't know freeroll means there is no buy-in (cost to play) but the prizes aren't too high either top prize tonight was $125 for the winner. 116th doesn't get anything.

Talked to my sister's this week and told them about going back to school. My older one is real gung ho on education so she was all for it, the younger just thinks it's terrific I can do something that so obviously makes me happy.

    I'd argue that perhaps that has nothing to do with luck. Perhaps it has everything to do with financial awareness and understanding. You chose not to live like the Joneses. An intelligent, conscious decision made on your part that ultimately afforded you the freedom to pursue a better way of life. Smile

    yeah. i agree with BA. i find people always tag others as 'lucky' when they realise they have made silly financial mistakes and want to have an excuse for it, and make others feel worse because they have it 'easy' or are 'lucky'. gah.
