Here it is! It's January 1st and I'm all sorts of excited about the new year!

I tucked the receipt into my calendar with the check register and marked it when i get home. I know exactly what's in the account. I have $700 to last until payday(tomorrow..lol). $200 is a payment to make, and $500 to the snowball. Then I start fresh with the new payday.
New Years Eve. I'm already in my PJ's.
