I should be using this blog to get that out, but for some reason I can't do that.
Instead I'm going to talk about the good.
My daughter brought home a 4.0 (all A's)... there surely was never a report card like that in my hands before I became a parent. HA!! I just didn't care about my grades like she does. So a big ole WTG Sabrina for a job well done.
I have a job, there is threat of layoffs in a year depending on if the customer renews our contract or not. It is looking like not. This is somewhat a good thing though because I can plan ahead. I can be in a better financial spot than I was in April of 2007 when I was laid off for over 6 months.
I'm excited about increasing my credit score, having an emergency fund for the first time ever, and generally not drowning in the financial torrent sea I have created. I have one big expense coming up but other than that the rest is saving money. If I don't get laid off then I can use some of the emergency fund to help pay off debt. Win, win all around right? I think so.
I have a list of things I have to do:
- Re-do my budget that currently isn't working for me
- Start a savings account which earns interest
- Make a list of purchases that will reduce my bills and expenditures (odd I know but this will get covered in the new blog when I start it).
I am quitting smoking... again! You can't quit if you quit trying right?
Things with T are going smashingly well, we've had a small 'disagreement' or two but no arguments or fights since we met. He really is a great man! He has helped to get me through the hardest parts of my life I've had and he's been through it himself. It brought us a million times closer.
What is going on good for you all?
