  1. Day 3 Tuesday 8/20

    It's 3 am. I fell asleep early and forgot to put the cat away. He woke me up at 2 crying at my bedroom door. Not sure why as he could go anywhere else in the house he wanted, and he isn't allowed in my room anyway. Stupid cat. Plans for today as I took today off work to catch up on some stuff:

    Super clean dining and living rooms
    wash my sheets
    Make banana nut muffins for the freezer
    Label freezer food I threw in there the other day without any labeling. ...

    Need to put into action all that I have learned about frugal living. I'm taking a 6 week break from the frugal village to see how I do on my own. I will be back to check on you all and update my status as well.
  5. A New Beginning.

    I've been trying to figure out how to stay on track with everything: bills, budget, housework, work, etc. I feel overwhelmed. I divorced over 6 years ago. You would think I would have a handle on things; however, it has just been getting worse and worse with finances. So even if no one reads this but me, maybe seeing it in print will inspire me to do better.

    I have a 16yo daughter that will be a senior tomorrow. I have one year to figure out where the college money is coming ...
