Monday again!

March 5th, 2006 at 10:04 pm

Gosh - Monday AGAIN! Where does the weekend go?

Our weekend was ok, with the exception of the concert being cancelled. I found out that they are definitely not rescheduling, so now I'm actually kind of excited to use the money as an extra CC payment. They say every cloud has a silver lining, so I guess that's it. Plus, I still get brownie points from hubby for buying the tickets in the first place (he didn't know about it right away -- it was a surprise). I am proud to do something responsible with the money, because in the past we would have just felt sorry for ourselves and blown it on something else. Not this time! Smile

Today my goal is to do something to make money! I haven't been putting that much effort into my challenge so far this month. I guess it's because I am sort of lost as to what to do next. Today I will do something -- probably a bank offer or something to that extent. When I get home from work I'll look into it. I gotta get moving on my challenge! I have a long way to go to meet my March goal. Tomorrow is one month to the day that I opened the sharebuilder accounts, so hopefully our bonuses will be available to move into savings. Also, received an Ebay payment over the weekend. I will add that to my challenge once it posts. I have two auctions that end today, and I am up to about $45, so that's a good thing. I only have one more auction listed after that...it ends tomorrow. I will have to check around the house and see if there's anything else worth selling.

I haven't really mentioned it much here, but I am absolutely DYING to get into a house of our own. We've been renting and it's definitely time to get a place we can call our own. Our lease ends August 10th and I am secretly praying that we can get a place by then. Of course, if we do, it will have to be through creative financing because we don't have the cash for a down payment. I don't even know if that's a smart financial decision. I have a lot of researching to do, which I plan to start immediately. Fortunately houses where we live aren't that expensive. We can easily find a place that meets our needs for $120-150K. I find that amazing, because where I moved from you couldn't get anything decent for under 200K. So, we'll see. I think about it constantly, especially since I don't really want to start a family until we have a house of our own. I hate throwing our money away on rent as well. It seems so pointless.

Forgot to mention that dad finished our taxes over the weekend and we are getting about $300. I thought it was going to be more, but we forgot about a 1099 for some freelance work that hubby did. Still, $300 is GREAT! Last year we had to pay a lot (as a matter of fact, we had to make payments and just finished paying that off). Of course, when that money comes, it is going to the CC debt! The way things have been going, I think we're going to be out of CC debt a lot faster than I thought. Dare I dream by the end of '06? Anyway, I am putting the taxes in the mail today!

Well, I'd better wrap this up. Happy Monday, everyone!
