    Hi printemps

    How are you doing?

    I am ok, I still feeling sad than cry now and than, when I thinking of my sister, but as long as I keep myself busy will be ok.

    This morning I went to paid off my brother last $500 and catch up with my sister in law too that was nice.

    I been put most of my hard earn money into our join account, I only got like $200 in my bank account. But if I need buy anything big I can use that account instead.

    I also manage my business account pretty good now, all bill up to date now, very please with that.

    Now I am start save up my money again.

    Hi @Anita44,
    How are you? Glad to hear you were able to watch the ceremony on Friday. It's normal to be feeling sad, but it's great you're keeping yourself busy.
    Kudos for finishing to pay off your brother! Good to hear were also able to catch up with him and your sister in law.
    And well done on the money management front! :cool: :cool: :cool:

    Hi lovely cat lady

    How are you been?

    I am ok I wouldn't say great, but I just learn to move on, but the memory I have with my older sister will live forever with me. I'm sure time will make thing better.

    With school holiday it's been quite busy with work too, I am very please with that.

    With self exclusion from the casino that was big help for me, cos I can't sneak to casino on the way before work anymore, so I just go buy grocery for work, than off to work. At less even I have the urge to gamble I can't anyway cos I'm not allowed to get in their anymore, so I am very proud of myself doing that.

    Hi printemps

    I am good thanks

    I still have problem with the insurance about my car, try to sort thing out asap, but they seen very slow, I still drive rental car at the moment.

    Yes I just thought if I self exclusion myself before and after work that will stop me if I do have the urge later on. Never know thing happen all the time. Just to be safe this time.

    Start save up some money now and I carry card with me now, cos I know myself I can't get in the club play anymore, which is the best thing I done.

    Hi @Anita44,

    How are you, how are things going?
    Sorry to hear the insurance company has been slow. In my experience, they usually are. However, it's great you still have the rental car.
    It's also really good to hear the self-exclusion has been helping.

    Hope things keep improving for you.

    Hi lovely cat lady

    How are you been?

    I been good, just so much hassle from car insurance that all, work been very busy which help boost my money for a bit, start putting alots extra to join account now, as I not gamble anymore, my partner are very proud of me going to do self exclusion like that.
    I said to said to him if I don't do it and when I have the urge to gamble I can't control myself.
    Now after self exclusion I don't have the urge to gamble, cos I know I can't go their so I don't even think about it anymore.
    I should do that long time ago.
