Well, I am sitting here at the library (because my internet connection at home is on the fritz….still working on it) surrounded by some things I have to do and things I want to do(letters to write and I brought my journal and needlework) , and feeing very blessed because I feel like I am surrounded by abundance. I have things to do and places to go(The gym, too!) , and people I love. I’m slogging through the debt repayment journey as best I can. Life goes on, and there are more positives than negatives. I just have to pay off this debt total somehow, but I am still determined to enjoy my life and the things I already have. I feel blessed I can keep up my payments and make small progress that is better than none at all.

Autumn has never been so busy for me! I am overloaded at work, and I am busy with a lot of social stuff which have been filling my weekends. I am trying not to overspend on “entertainment,” but fortunately the events have been relatively inexpensive. Gas is the main expense, and the focuses have not been on restaurants for get togethers which has been helpful.

I am focused on paying off one credit card and the car. It will take another 3 years to get them paid off while keeping all the bills paid , too, and Yes, I will snowflake to the best of my ability and try to limit the expenses of my social life next year.

I am also going to work on getting my emergency fund together,too. Of course, before it becomes a meaningful amount, I spend it for an emergency…….It has been an ongoing curse, but I am hopeful it will amount to something someday.

I am trying to stay calm and focused thru this winter, and I will try to get my act together again. I can at least say I have a method to getting the bills paid, and I have a lot to entertain me for the next several months without having to spend a lot of money. I have things I need to get done in the apartment, and I have some studying to do, too, that may get me to the next level of satisfaction n my life. I am just trying to stay on a good path even if I can’t move my wagon ahead much.

Let’s see what happens this week……I have a lot of events again!
