A Chaotic February Goes Out With A Bang!

I am not sorry to see February go.  Buh-bye.

  • Our budget was tight with the trip home.  Loss of pay from the second job, plus travel adds up. 
  • My decluttering took a turn for the worse in the past week, and my house is a DISASTER.
  • Illness through the house. 
  • My broken tooth. (and the antibiotic is making me sick...if it continues, I will have to call them and have it changed)
  • Bossy's private therapist is having complications with her pregnancy, and may end up on bedrest. So that changed today's schedule, and may change the schedule for the next several months.
  • And today....the kids have a surprise early dismissal at 12:45 (that is almost 3 hrs early!!) due to impending weather (which if you look at, says it is mostly rain.....). 
On a brighter is PAYDAY for me!!!

I hope later I can map out March, and really hit things hard.  By the end of March we will have a better idea what some numbers will look like, and start to make REAL progress.


  1. I don't know where you are located, but if it is the storm that rolled through last night for us, it brought tornadoes, hail, and damaging winds. Very scary!

  2. Things have to get worse to get better. My grandmother always said that and it really is true. If you are going to really clean and declutter the house it will have to get worse. Also you bought a car. A much needed car. That car had its own collateral. Adding it to your debt makes you you feel like a failure. But putting money into a dying car is failing. Cheer up Charlie, things will get better. I have been where you are right now so many times.

  3. Here's to hoping that March is a much better month for you guys! Just keep at it, you're doing great!

  4. Fingers crossed that March is a fabulous month for you & your family!

  5. Goodbye Feb, hello March!! Ha, better luck next month we all get into bad months sometimes!!! Keep your chin up

  6. Overall, February hasn't been so bad, but this week has been horrendous ---- I'm SO ready for it to be OVER!!!!! Good luck with your March, I KNOW its going to be better!!!!!
