    I am excited. I get to do a REAL Costco shop on Friday. I have $200 to spend (I need diapers and wipes and all kinds of stuff!). [Stay under budget, Honey!]

    We also have our normal Friday grocery shopping, so I have to make some meal plans and shopping lists today (in addition to finishing my final exam for Economics class - yuck!).

    Tomorrow is my little boy's birthday! He will be two!!! OMG! I cannot believe it. Nic was born at 28 weeks weighing only 3lbs. He was in the NICU for 8 weeks, and had surgery to seal a valve in his heart. He is a tough little man who has come a long way. To look at him and to interact with you - one could never tell he was born premature. He is perfect in everyway (except when he has a blue crayon to the wall).

    I have to make him a ... oh it's going to be a busy week!

    So... I think I mentioned previously that Mr. Funny got a promotion. He is now on salary (nice for the budget) - so a raise there (Friday's paycheck is the first!). He also got a $2K bonus! After taxes (ugh!) it's $1066 - there is our BABY EMERGENCY FUND!!

    Not to mention... January is a three paycheck month for him! After food and gas and stuff, we will have $1100 from that 3rd paycheck to put towards our snowball.

    And finally, I just got notice, my reimbursement check from school will be here at the end of the month! $1397!

    My first 8 cards are all $600 or less each. We are going to be able to pay off several cards the first 2 months! (Our Snowball is a whopping $600 (not including $400 for the minimums).

    I am pleased, and will take what I can get, since I know it won't always be this easy.

    We will continue to put a hundred or so in savings for our truck, which we have to fix (we are only using one vehicle right now). If I get that new job, I may be working different hours - in the other direction, so carpooling won't be an option.

    P.S. It's also my b-day... My employees got me a Gift Card to my favorite semi-fast food place (Mexican) - with enough cash loaded to feed me at least 5 lunches!! Yummy!

    Off to go change my siggy!

    Congratulations on Mr Funnys promotion and your cheque from school, that will certainly start making that snowball bigger.
