Bowing Out Gracefully

The last couple of weeks have been filled with lots and lots of activities for me. I have been working a lot, and am seeing some of the fruits of my efforts. The company I have been doing work for has now put me on payroll for part-time hours. This is such a blessing! I will have consistent funds coming in which will help the budget immensely. It will help me free up money from my yearly budget to pay off debt, and reach some goals. Not to mention I enjoy the work.

My schedule is filling up fast, and I have to let something go. So I've decided to bow out of the 'challenges' that I signed up for. I will still declutter, and try to lose that pesky 10 pounds, as well as keeping my spending as low as possible, just not officially.

I am still knitting ( to keep my sanity) and I will post pictures of my first pair of knitted socks when they are done. Carla, I think I can do some chunky ones for you in the future. Do you have a colour preference? I have been trying to find some time to takes pictures of my creations, but that isn't happening anytime this week. Oh well.

I'm starting to work on my month end numbers. It seems we're not making much progress, but that's ok too. This time of year is always super-tight for us, so to keep the debt at a certain level is fine by me. At least we're making the minimum payments. :)

I gotta run. Work calls. Have a good day everyone!


  1. Sounds like you're making great progress - congrats on getting added to the payroll!

  2. Congrats on getting a steady paycheque!! That is really going to help.

  3. Congrats on the job!! Getting out of debt and keeping your head above water is challengeing enough!! You have lots of time to declutter closets in the future

  4. Don't overwork yourself. I think scaling back on the amount of things you have to do is a good idea.

    Have fun and I am happy to see you will be making more progress with this extra work and paycheck coming in.
