Almost end of June update

June 29th, 2008 at 01:14 pm

Well June has been a very busy month in our household. Trying to go on our little enjoyment weeknd, vehicles being renewed, school fees for the kid and just everything else it has been busy. Did manage to put a few dollars in the bank.

Our annual canoe trip with friends was a little weird this year. Not as many went and then the water was up so it was a faster, shorter float. But well worth the time being away from kids, work and responsibility.

Now that I have been looking ahead to July it seems that will be just as busy. Trying to squeeze in b-day parties, cookouts, and extra work time. Just need to put on my big girl panties and suck it up.

1/2 year update

June 8th, 2008 at 03:01 pm

Well I decided to see how I was doing on my 2008 goals.

Financial
We are doing great. Almost have the 2nd mortgage paid off. Saving DH's paycheck. Almost $11K in the bank. Need to work on the frugality part a little more. Reducing spending will come with that.

Home

Green wise doing great as well. We have reduced our trash output to one kitchen garbage bag a week. The recycling bin is always full. Savings cans has produced $$ in the bank. Putting off the new dishwasher for now. Have gotten rid of about 150 pounds of stuff via freecycle. The shelves have been put into July to do.
To save on gas DH and I are carpooling and it has been working out great.

Work

Almost have gotten rid of the reports. Hopefully sometime this month. Haven't received anything about audit scores and I am working on some classes to learn the product.

Personal

Calling friends and family at least once a week to see how things are. Have lost 17 pounds so far this year. Faced my fear of going to the dentist. So glad I did because I have a abcess we are working on. Exercise is going great. The community center gym hasn't been working out as well as I hoped. They keep changing hours. All the expos and concerts I want to go to are coming up and I am working on getting in for free. Housekeeping is still a challenge since I have been working OT but will be working on that one.

Overall this year has been going good. Need to pick up the pace on a few things and kickstart the frugality more.
