Being Thankful

December 30th, 2006 at 06:51 am

Christmas was fantastic. It was spent with my family. We had great food and great fun. The puppy couldn't stay away from the Chrsitmas tree. She nearly depleted my ornament collection, by the time Christmas day rolled around we had taken everything off the tree and had a naked Christmas tree. We got to meet DD's new boyfriend. He seems like a very nice person so I hope it works out for them. My son came to visit from the city and as always it was so good to see him.

Financially, We did not go over the top, too much, as in previous years. I do have a balance on my credit card but I hope to pay it off in two cycles. I have been selling items on Ebay and half.com in attempt to declutter my home and to earn a little cash. Things have been moving slowly but at least it's something. Work has been pretty busy this past week for which we are counting our blessings. I was able to save 100% of my pay, which is the last pay period of the year. I didn't have to do any food shopping, since we lived on leftovers this week and the monthly bills were paid with last weeks pay check.

Tomorrow hubby and I are going to sit down together and write out our personal and financial goals for the new year. I'm sort of excited about this. I always look forward to goals. This year has been very good to us and our family, for which I am extremely thankful.

Last night, I saw the movie Little Miss Sunshine. I really enjoyed it.
