dh is working in the basement tomorrow getting the dryer moved and cleaned out of all the lint (one of my goals)

I have been dropping the youngest at social group and spending time at the library 2 days a week

Goal 1. Work on staying within our weekly allowance and having some left over.

So far I have been doing okay. The first week of January we had nothing left over. last Week we had $35 leftover and I took the family to dinner on it after signing or refinance papers on the house, sort of a celebration dinner, for shaving 2.25% off our mortage rate. This week I have 35 leftover to last the week, but I still have $200 set aside for a stock up trip tommorrow, that is going to be done at Sam's and Aldi's.

Goal 2. Plan our meals based on food already in the freezer and pantry.

I have been doing this, mostly only using indregients in the pantry. This has cleaned out the freezer pretty nicely, Now I just need to organize it.

Goal 3. Work out on Wii Fit everyday at least 20-30 minutes.

I have been slacking on this one, but I unlocked the free step, so after Johnathon goes to bed, I have been doing that for 20-30 minutes. I picked up the new Wii Fit Plus, and it is nice.

hello!! my main goal for january was a general one-to get back on track with everything bill wise. im almost there. i'm making good on the payment arrangements i set up and i already have a new budget set up for when we move (in 6 weeks!! i cant wait!!). once we get our income taxes back, it will be another step in the right financial direction. i'm also doing pretty good with my diet-i feel better and i dont feel overstuffed lately. also were doing good with our shopping money and saving what we can, where we can...things are looking good.
