Well, I haven’t (re)started this blog like I intended. I always have good intentions of sitting down and writing frequently and then life gets busy and when I get to the end of the day I’ve got too much going on or I’m tired and don’t have any brain power left to write with. Ugh. I really do want to use this blog to write things from my heart, share things about what’s going on in life, and just have an outlet to share.
So here’s what’s been going on around here lately..
I’m working part-time and while the work itself isn’t hard, I’m standing the whole time and it’s exhausting! Fun job though!
Our trip incentive period started this month and I’m working my Scentsy business as much as I can so that I can earn that trip again! Hawaii was amazing this last summer and I don’t want to miss next year’s trip! The top 100 get to go to Greece and then the next 1700 get to go to The Bahamas. I don’t pretend to believe I can be in the top 100 but I’m totally happy with a trip to The Bahamas!! (Want to learn how you can go with me? Contact me and I can tell you how to start your own business for only $99!! You can make extra money each month AND travel for free!!)
My kids have started college and we’ve been getting to hear some fun stories from them about their classes and things going on on campus and with their friends. Mostly from our daughter since she’s the talker and our son isn’t quite so much. 😉
Business has been a little slower than usual for my husband so we’re keeping a tight reign on our spending and praying business picks back up quickly!
My husband had to get tested for the BRAC1 cancer gene because it was discovered that his mom carries the gene. We got his results back today and he tested negative! Woohoo! That means he doesn’t carry it and our kids are safe from it too!
A member of my husband’s extended family died today after a battle with cancer. That really sucks. Cancer sucks.
The whole reason I’m working that part-time job that I mentioned is so we can aggressively work on our debt snowball. I made a spreadsheet with all of our debit listed out from smallest to greatest and my paycheck each week goes to whatever is on top. I was able to pay two bills off so far already this month! Woohoo! That keeps me motivated and wanting to keep going to work. 🙂
Well, that’s just a small sampling of things going on right now but there you have it. What’s going on in your life?
