Excited about January

December 16th, 2009 at 08:20 am

I know I have been gone a while, but I wanted to give an update. I have so much going on! It is crazy this time of the year.

I am excited about January. If I stick to the budget I have, it will be the last month that I have to have my parents help financially. I hope it works out and there aren't too many surprises.

DH and I are still seperated. I actually served him with divorce papers and went and had them signed. But then he begged me not to file them yet...to not give up on what we have. And since then he has been a different person...until last night. He couldn't get ahold of me while my daughter was looking for me. It was no big deal, but he almost reverted back to his old self. That is why I haven't asked him to move back in.

I think I have Christmas covered. I just hope that I can get the phone my daughter wants in time. Keep your fingers crossed.

I am definately in an "up" mood today. The gym where my daughter goes to cheerleading sent out an email today about one of the families that is in need. They aren't going to have a Christmas. The gym was asking for donations so they could have a Christmas. I immediately started working on my budget and am able to contribute $79 for the competition fees that are due at the end of the month. The girls said it was okay that they wouldn't have Christemas as long as they got to cheer. I feel really good about being able to do that. I am going to talk to my DD to see about contributing half out of her allowance.

COuponing is still going good. I bought $220 of groceries for $108. That was great! I have my list for this week and it is nice to be able to choose the stuff I need because we are pretty well stocked up on other stuff.

    That's so great that you're teaching your kids about making choices and prioritizing spending. It sounds like they're really grasping and not taking anything for granted, which is a good value for them to have.

    Glad to hear you might be able to stop taking your parents' money, but don't worry if you need to do it for one more month--holidays have a way of messing up finances. Smile
