Financial diet…

Today is the last day of the month, so I thought I should update my financial status. Things turned out a little better than I had hoped because I finally go the extra 8 hours of pay for Memorial Day…. Extra money is always wonderful!!

More good news… I will have my emergency fund fully funded by pay day this Thursday.

Also, I finally took the time to consolidate some of my debt. I got a fixed rate 9.8% credit card from my credit union- so I am in the process of paying off credit card #2 and #3, since they had the highest interest rate (13.61% and 19.99%).

**random thought- I had to go to the credit union yesterday to pick up a $10,333 check (with my name on it-Holly shit!)- So that I could deposit it in my checking account and pay off my credit cards. For a second I thought about all the things I could do with the money if I just ran away. (Major shopping spree, multiple vacations… etc.) But then I decided I couldn’t run too far with 10 grand, so I just went to my bank and deposited it! lol :-)**

I have updated everything in the side bar to reflect these changes. I have some big balances to knock out now, but I see a light at the end of the tunnel so I feel good about it!

On to my “weight-loss diet”….

I haven’t been to the gym since…

…Since I don’t remember when. Let me look it up….

Okay, I haven’t been to the gym since last Wednesday.


That is no good!

I only had a one day weekend, and after work yesterday I was sooooo exhausted I went home and got in the bed. The gym was the last thing on my mind.

I plan on going to the gym tonight and every night for the rest of the week. So hopefully things will balance out!

I don’t want to talk about food. I have discovered something though- when I eat crap, I usually feel like crap too. I physically feel heavy and lethargic.

You’d think I’d have learned my lesson by now.

Whatever! Today is a new day! :-)

One last update…

I hung out with my little this past Sunday. We went to go see Transformers.

I’ll just say that it was very interesting. *Lol*

She talked a little more, but I didn’t expect too much, especially since this is our first time hanging out together. She seems to be a good kid though.

I picked her up from her house… where she lives with a shit-ton of people. Seriously. It was a full house…. The uncle, the “Dad”, 2 brothers, 2 sisters, Mom, Grandma, Great Grandma…. Only thing that was missing was a dog or two.

If anything I’m sure she was a least happy to get away for a little bit.

After the movie- I told her I was giving her homework… she has to come up with at least one activity that she wants to do with me. A little while after I dropped her off, she sent me this text message….

“I want to go to the mall”

Lol… we are going to have to work on her texting- etiquette. So I guess our next outing will be to the mall.

My kind of girl! ;-)

I hate to cut it short (you know how I love to ramble)… but I have to get back to my slave labor for the day.

I hope everyone has a fabulous Tuesday!
