GBU - September 18, 2011

Let's see how we fared THIS week....

The Good: 

  • Survived the non-stop meetings
  • Got through 12.5  14.5 of 31 items on my "Extra" To-Do list
  • Having the service plan with the oil company covered the boiler issue this week

The Bad:
  • Another car issue (cheap to fix on our own, but time intensive)
  • Still having a bad case of "the wants"

The Ugly:
  • $411 dollars for glasses for G-man
  • Way too much on eating out (see "surviving the non-stop meetings" comment above)
  • Tons of yard work to do! (I posted this weeks ago....not much further than I was then)

One more thing happened....but I am not sure where to put it......Another job opened up for G-man, which would mean a move:

Good things about it - we want to relocate; upward mobility potential; they don't open often, but this makes 2 in recent months

Bad things about it - timing isn't great; possible pay cut

Ugly things about it - moving costs, selling the house issue

You know the deal....what are your GBUs this week?????


  1. Hi Mysti, I really enjoy reading your blog. Here are my GBUs

    The Good - My husband and are still employed full time as of today.

    The Bad - My huband's work is laying people off every week

    The Ugly - Feeling like we are in limbo with the job situation - Stress can be very powerful and we are finding it hard to sleep and not have it consume our thoughts every day.

  2. I've missed your GBU posts! It's always great to see the good things in someone's week. I'm glad you were able to get through the meetings. I truly believe that everything happens for a reason, so if your husband gets the job then it is meant to be! :) Good luck and hang in there!

  3. The Good: Going home today or tomorrow from my work trip
    The Bag: I might miss my flight due to overboarding tonight
    The Ugly: Not being able to go home.

    I really just want to go home.

  4. Ever think about going back a year or two and checking out the GBU post? and see if the Ugly lasted?
