Living Like No One Else

I'm currently feeling a little under the weather today. I'm not sure if it is due to the fact we have been blessed with the lovely pollen, or it is just one of those "bugs." Work has been crazy stressful too. That makes me even more exhausted.

Paul is out right now working his second job - delivering pizzas. He was due home in about an hour, but he called earlier to say he's closing. Well, at least, we will have more money to put towards savings and/or the Debt Snowball. I am so very thankful for him stepping up to the plate to bring in more money! People think he's crazy for what he is doing. Little do they know, we are living like no one else, so later we can live like no one else.

Credit Sharks

Today was week 6 in Financial Peace University! Credit card sharks! Yikes! We all know they bite us, well, today we learned how to bite back!

March is our first official month being on our budget. So far, so good. We are getting real close in maxing out our "Restuarant/Eating Out" fund. The kids will hate us for a few weeks. "Mom!! We want Wendy's!!!"

I have become very aware of my spending habits lately. I gave up my $100 hair appointment yesterday! That was very tough to do. Fridays are "Shanele" mornings - Paul takes the kids to school instead of myself. So, on "Shanele" mornings, I treat myself to a Skinny Vanilla Latte venti size with a low-fat blueberry muffin. That didn't happen this past Friday. I treated myself on the way to Wednesday night class at church. I couldn't bring myself spending $6.47 two days after I was there a few nights before. I love what Dave has done to my brain!
