New Lawn Mower

It may sound silly, but we ordered a new lawn mower today and I am really looking forward to receiving it. Currently we have an electric mower and I am not good at managing the cord. The new one is the same brand, Black and Decker, but it is battery powered. Hopefully it will arrive by Friday. If not, it should be here by Monday.

Cool and Eclectic

We found this new store that just opened up in the mall called Cool and Eclectic. I couldn't resist buying this little sign.

Ready for Vacation

Next week I am on vacation and I can't wait.  I know realistically I will be doing some work while at home, but at least I won't be in the office.  I am officially counting down the hours until this day is over - 4 hours to go!

A Loan Shark Is Cheaper

Hubby saw a commercial yesterday advertising a $10,000 loan from Western Sky Financial and you could get it same day.  The commercial basically made is sound like there was no strings attached.  Until you read the fine print, of course.  The fine print said there was an interest rate of 89.68%.  If you calculate that out over the life of the loan, that would come to over $62,000!

You could go to a loan shark cheaper than 89.68% interest.  Heck, even if you didn't pay the loan shark and he decided to break your legs, the hospital bill would be cheaper than $62,000.

I really feel sorry for these people who call this company for a loan and don't read the fine print.
