I try to post periodically. From Firefox, I usually get the "not authorized to comment" nonsense and when on Safari, I get the "this user name is not valid" or some other mumble jumble.
Anyhow, not too awful much is new here. My hubby got a bonus of $1700 a few weeks ago, and so we put most of it towards debt. We also filed our taxes. We will pay off our Best Buy card when our refund comes in ($1900), but will probably use most of the rest as a buffer to offset our low income, at least for now. It looks like we will be getting a refund from our escrow account in a couple of months ($1000ish), so I am truly hoping the worst of the year is already behind us (you know, with the $2200 out of pocket for my daughter's prescription a few weeks ago)
I did not stick to my February goals. I have not even bothered to come up with new goals for March. (I know what my problem is. I am depressed. Honestly, I just don't know how to fix it.) I hope that spring helps with that...I am excited about the time change this weekend, and have been trying to take walks every once in awhile. The exercise helps so much. I do know that I need a new job. That is the biggest source of stress for me right now (aside from the whole TTC fiasco, which is just not fun right now) Anyhow, my issue with my job (aside from the fact that it is mind-numbing work that pays minimum wage) is that there is no one there for me to make friends with, and I need some friends. I miss my Wisconsin friends a LOT, and I haven't lived out there since 11/09. I have a few friends here, but none of them are where I work...they are all people I went to school with and see every couple of months. So, as soon as I get a decent sleep (haven't had one of those in over a week), I am going to apply for a couple of new jobs. I have identified a few potential companies, just need to rework my resume a bit.
Did I tell you guys that when I sold my stock in January, I accidentally sold my Caterpillar stock instead of my 3M stock? I was upset about it then, but it turns out the mistake was in my favor. My CAT stock has dropped $9 since I sold, whereas my 3M stock has gone up $8ish. Makes me feel a little better : )
So anyhow, like I said, not too much new here. Just living life day to day and waiting for the sun to come out!
