    by , 01-01-2009 at 06:12 PM (Travelling on the frugal path to Freedom)
    I decided to expand my handmade Christmas challenge to handmade gifts period.

    I designed my MIL a set of hand towels. Yes Id did have to buy the towels, but they were bought months ago on sale. They love to camp, like we do, 4 to 5 months out of the year, not necessarily everyday but at least every weekend. So I made her this darling set.

    2008 was a really tough year. I am hoping that 2009 will be better, but then again, I say that every year. We want so badly to expand our family and add on a baby. In 2008 we underwent 2 fresh IVF cycles and 1 frozen cycle. All of those attempts ended with no baby. January was our first attempt and it left me physically and mentally spent.

    Ok. Here it is.
    ***I saved some change form last year. My cange jar on Jan 1 is at 13.48.
    ***I have a little over 3200.00 in credit card debt
    ***I have 845.00 in savings.

    *** savings up to at least 4000.00 for a new roof.

    After these are done I will rethink more goals. I also will be doing small challenges to help meet the goals.

    3. To remember that each day lived is a day lost, and to make the most of the time I have.

    We stayed on plan these two days.

    Tuesday we had Jambalaya, corn and Texas Toast for dinner. We went and worked out at the Y, we tried a new 30 minute circuit work out. There are around 30 stations. You do each station for 1 minute. It alternates between a strength stations and cardio. It was okay, I sure felt the strength stations. (Arms, legs, etc). The part I didn't like was that on the cardio stations there were bikes and other things that I had to adjust height on. I am ...
