Long time...no blog

May 30th, 2009 at 06:00 am

Hello all! I have not posted for several months but occassionaly still peruse the blogs. But I am hoping to blog a little more these coming months.

Finanacially things are much better than they were several months ago. Here is the good news:
1. My car is paid off. (extra 310 mon.)

2. The orthodontist is paid off (extra 235 mon.)

3. All medical bills are paid off
(Only medical bills are monthly prescriptions.)

4. Husband has been much more active in the budget and now does the monthly bill paying almost all online, it is all computerized and categorized etc... wonderful! We have a long term and short term budget.

5. Have not had any late payments since March.

6. Money is actually being put into savings and budgeted for propane, haircuts etc...

7. My husband and I do weekly grocery trips together. We have a running grocery list on the computer that we update

8. We have successfuly planned and stuck to our weekly meals.

Bad news...
1. We still have credit card balances but they are slowly going down.

2. M. didn't receive any bonuses for this year but he thinks he might in a few months since they have made large sales and are getting busy.

3. Have a lot of car maintenance to do this summer...luckily M. does it all like brakes, oil, etc.

I guess the good news outnumbers the bad but the whole credit card issue still bothers the hell out of me.
Only owe 140.00 on gap so should be paid off in July!

So, that is a quicky update. Hope everyone is well.

OH MY GOSH! I forgot one of the biggest BIGGEST accomplishments of my life thus far! I have lost 37 POUNDS since January 16th!
As of this morning I weigh 138 pounds!

I exercise a lot and run 12 to 15 miles a week.

So, yes, that is really good news!
