My DH was due to come home tonight after a 2 week business trip. It supposed to be a week but they extended it a week. He called at 7:30 this morning to say they want him another 4 days=surprise (he is out of laundry and money but luckily has enough meds)
DD got called about teaching a jewelry class. I was shocked when they hired her as a contract worker. She get 60% of the take from the classes. She starts tomorrow!!=surprise
When we realized DD could scedule for college
I've been very frustrated w/ our debt. load lately. It seems to be taking forever so I started thinking about how far we've come.
-We were deep in medical debt,mortgage and CC.
- We have paid $70,000 in debt
-bought a roof cash,
-bought 2 vehicle-used of course
-paid 2 college semesters and have cash for 1 more so far
- Paid off a road assessment for paving our street.
-WE have a small BEF and a huge pantry.
I haven't blogged for quite awhile and this is a heck of a place to start.
Today is the 5th anniversary of my DH falling 30 ft. off an overpass and living. I like to celebrate because he "should" have died or been injured way more than he was. He "should " have lost his leg or died of a blood clot. He "should" have injured his spine or been a head injury veg. but he isn't. So I quietly celebrate. He won't acknowlege today but I do. I am so grateful for what
Did a big shop today and my pantry is still in good shape so I decided to meal plan for 2weeks maybe 4 w/ what's in the house exceppt for a few preishables. Dh will be leaving for a week,home a week and gone a week. DS is backin school and DD starts Mon. so I need to get a plan.
I have Dec. expenses finished. Made January,Feb. and March's proposed budgets.
