Lots of things that are not going great for people. RIP Mary Ann too.

Please list something positive that is going right for you to inspire others.

The store just might be holding its own this winter. I know that before Christmas usually things are dandy but when things slow down and the big bills come in I get scared my credit line may not be able stay below its limit. I am not 100% positive but I think it might be just fine this year, even supporting a roof loan payment. I shouldn't be counting chicks but I feel better about it than other years. Is it because i have more experience with the fluctuations, possibly. We will see when spring comes!~

Lots of good happening here, too! My youngest son had his feeding tube removed yesterday and was able to go back to school today! He is doing sooo much better, and hasn't been in the hospital at all over the past month! Yay! And I also got my baby-sitting job back, so now we have enough income to cover all of our expenses and have a little extra for snowballing those debts!

I did OK on my job interview under the circumstances -- I've been ill with the seasonal germs. It took me a day to fly there. Then the interview lasted 12 hours each day, and there were two days of them. (Actually, on the first day it was closer to 14 hours.) Even if I don't get this job, I've made some good professional contacts.

PB, oh my!  That is quite the interview process.  I am sure something positive, job or not, will come out of that.

Silly....a feeding tube, goodness!  Is this an on going issue?

And Jen, I think you also mentioned sick kiddos in the hospital.  Hope it was an exception to their normal health.

Body fat percentage down to 14.96%. Man, I've been stressed. I ate a whole carton of ice cream in one day.

I am happy to be pretty much debt free- one loan to FIL for the car.  It took us three years to get here (on one income) and the stress is gone.  I'm happy DH has a job in a career in a field he is passionate about and with a company that values their employees. He has built himself a solid reputation.  The loyalty of his past customers (sad to see him go after 10 years) led him to setting up a business where he can work with them and not have it conflict or interfere with carrer, but rather keeps him up to date and in the loop in all aspects of his field. I love that I can stay home.  I am happy that DH and I split the housework 50/50 (though sometimes swaying more in one direction or the other) since he works from home.  I am pleased we have continued using cash.  I am happy to have an Efund.  I feel like for the first time in a long time we are in control of our money. rather than being controlled by debt.

Serenity, my son is a kidney transplant recipient and has a chronic GI condition. The latest illness and resulting feeding tube were not expected, however. Now that he has recovered I am feeling victorious and a renewed feeling of hopefulness for our future, financially and otherwise.
