This sucks the Big One

March 27th, 2010 at 12:21 pm

I'm not too impressed with the new site.
Pretty user unfriendly.

February Challenge

February 4th, 2010 at 08:16 pm

Well, I messed up and went out to lunch with a friend today. So , there's no way now that I'll win the Feb. challenge.
On the upside, I've had 2 NSDs this month.
Today, just wasn't one of them.

Update to Side Bar

January 22nd, 2010 at 08:50 am

I recently stumbled across a website that is dedicated to money and debt quotes. There's a lot of food for thought there.

I think I've pretty much met my soda goal. Some days I have two, some days I only have one. Maybe I'll just give it up completely.
Nah, probably not. But it sure is nice not to feel completely addicted.

The Purge Continues

January 13th, 2010 at 07:18 am

1 Coffee maker
1 too-big dog harness
1 stuffed animal
2 more dust catchers

All the above are destined for Goodwill.

30 Cds - sold!!

Off to the city, again. Gotta get those rebate checks to the bank. I'll be dropping off the purge items at Goodwill. Need feed for the horses, too. The good news, to me anyway, is that my friend is driving so I won't be burning the fuel today.

Miscellaneous Stuff

January 8th, 2010 at 08:16 pm

So far so good on the soda intake reduction.
It's not that I don't like water, tea, juice, etc. , it's mostly that I miss the fizz.

I made my monthly payment on The Loan today; sent an extra $165. I'm determined to be rid of that debt by the end of the year!

Still rummaging through my recipe box to see what will wind up in the cookbook.

Purge 30 in 30 Update:
5 knickknacks
2 pieces "junk jewelry"
5 T-shirts that I just don't like
1 wind spinner thingy
2 household items

All going to Goodwill - Points = 22.5

Busy day today

January 3rd, 2010 at 02:34 pm

I've been busy today. Cleaned the corral, filled the trough, move 9 bales of hay(with MMs help), cleaned the house(definitely not thoroughly), and found 5 items for the 30 Day Challenge.

Also found a quarter when I went to the dump! WooHoo!

It's 3:33pm and I just opened my first soda of the day.

Fun Day Today

January 2nd, 2010 at 08:10 pm

Today Mountain man and I spent the day at a friend's house and I learned how to play dominoes. Good friends, good times. Doesn't get much better than that.

Update on Soda reduction: Only 3 today! My goal is 2, but 3 is better than my previous habit. I'll try to do better tomorrow.

Last Day of 2009

December 31st, 2009 at 08:18 am

Well, here it is. The last day of the year and the first day of my blog.

I'm hoping to help myself get on track (and, hopefully, stay there) to pay off a personal loan and accelerate my mortgage payments. And while doing that I am going to really get serious about saving money, too.

Right now my debts are:

Personal loan: $4344
Mortgage: $108251

My goals are to pay off the PL by December 31, 2010 and to put $100 extra towards the mortgage.
