Facing reality

January 5th, 2007 at 08:23 am

Ok, so I just went and I added up the ugly truth and it's not as bad as I thought. Our current debt is $20,115.42. Christmas basically had us remaining steady. And actually, the $116 more than when I quit in October is gas and groceries that I just haven't paid off yet. We really didn't use the cards except for convenience.

So, here we go! I faced reality and I'm ready to roll! DH got his church pay last night and the entire amount goes to the cards as soon as he gets it in the bank.

I'm baaaaaaack!

Hello all! I am back! I took a little break as Christmas hit hard! I wasn't prepared for Christmas at all and as it turned out, all our extra pennies went to Christmas. BUT, I have come out of it not too far behind, though not at all ahead. LOL! This journal entry is my first step getting back on track, so I haven't even faced reality yet as far as how much I owe on the CC. I send a little more than the minum each month, so I know I'm better off than I was, but...well I just haven't checked in a while.

My goal for this month is to regain the obsessiveness I had before! LOL! My obsession has transferred to my weight issues, which is good, but now I need to be diligent about both.

So I am back 21 lbs lighter around the waist, but not so much lighter in the wallet.

Here's to January and 2007!
