1. Telling my story WORE ME OUT! Wow. I expected it to be hard...but then it wasn't as bad as a thought...until I was done. That is when I realized how hard it was to process all those things again. I must say, the last few posts were not as "polished" as I wanted them to be but I just needed to be done. Glad I did it. Hope that I can find a way for other people in similar positions to "find" me, But right now I am just glad I am done.
4. I have been working hard on finances after taking Dave Ramsey's Financial Peace class last September. I really liked the majority of the class. He is more religious and conservative than me, but I took what I liked out of the course and really made some improvements to my financial life. There is a freedom that has come with knowing where all my money is going and being in control of it. I have managed some big expenses (new car a/c + suspension = $900, dental work = $700, etc.) without going into debt. That felt great. I was also able to find room in my budget for some "extras" like someone to mow my lawn, which has been a huge relief and time saver for me.
That's it for now - Happy Weekend!!!
