I want to thank EVERYONE who responded to my call for help. You are
wonderful! I was having trouble getting Budget101.com to come up on
my computer and you all gave me the answers I needed.
I read each one
and here’s what we ended up with: First, I should say that I forgot

listed the agenda: I made an appointment at a salon for after payday
and included shopping for clothes and lunch.I may add a movie on
that day if we feel up to it. She was thrilled and is very anxious
for our “date.” She didn’t have a clue that I was broke and just
assumed the day was planned around when I was able to get her to the
