I noticed its a good way to assess every area in my life....
run vs strength calendar--I ran my 5K and won 1st place!!! So proud of myself!
run with jackie and adam--Well Amy may have a heart condition so now it's just me. I have been doing my bootcamp classes, very tough! I gotta get to the gym more though.
playdates--Gonna try to get together with heather this month. And, Zak has a birthday party!!
game nights--not this month
Zak's homework-he is so close to tieing his shoes!! He also gets extra work for home
girls nights--Not this month ethier....
date night--not sure this month, with Adam's schooling, its been hard to even see eachother
dvd movies--DONE! phew. Finally. Now, I need to start scrapping again! I will start this soon....
reading again--I have ACLS and NRP to do this month.
houseparty-I've applied for a few, but haven't got chosen :(
photobook- I printed Lydia pics, but didn't have time for a photo book.
make $$ (for wedding fund)
craigslist--reposted one, haven't heard a thing.
cans--Gotta cash in our cans....
credit card--my credit card give me 2% cash back. That cash will go to the wedding fund as well. Also, with every purchase I make I round up the dollar and throw that into the money jar.---Uh oh, we may soon have to find a new card :(
expotv--This is just a fun little website that doesn't earn anything towards $$, but little gifts that are a good thing to have, and the points are easy to get.--May 4604pts--still slackin here...I have NO time right now
inbox dollars--I like this because the revenue is pretty high. I have $11 now and i can cash in at $25. I take surveys, search things and read emails. Also this month i'm going to use coupons from there and get $.10 per coupon!--Sept $21 (made $2 this month)
hits4pay-- this is another read email site. It's really easy to get the $$, but it seems like its going to take forever to get to $25---Sept $11.80
DEBT IS GONE!!! GO ADAM!!
I have put a lot of money into the house the last 6 months, but man was it worth it! It has brought the house such a nice look! Adam has worked his butt off painting and stuff. I think were an awesome team. But, there's always more to do:
- Take down gazebo cover
- get on dad and adam to fix the shed
- put away tables
- leaf day
- Organize Closets
- find out how much it is to fix sunroom roof and to make it 4 season --we want another estimate
- take down tiki torches
- fix grill cover
- put away hose
What i'm trying to do is combine all my $$ into 2 accounts. One has over $15,000 the other only $2000, but I am making the second one grow to make $15,000 because then I get a 10% increase in interest at the end of the quarter--still doing this.
close discover accts--closed!
budget 1st pay--i'm thinking $1500...
$1000 to charles schwab--I need to keep a good amount in this acct to fund my roth. This month I will fund it
- split $1000 between house fund $265, emergency fund $265, Roth IRA $416, $20 Zak
close life insurance--I am keeping a policy called a critical illness policy. It's only $15/mo
Change over credit cards- I finally changed everything over.
Refinance- I think we gave up for now...
study calendar--I took my test...ugh...it was hard.
register for ACLS--I registered for November. Starting to study soon
NRP--Mine expires 10/10, so I need to renew this as well this year. I gotta sign up
CEUs--I have done a few CEUs, gotta do more by the end of the year
Clinical Ladder--I have decided to participate in the clinical ladder. If I get my certification, it will surely help, but next year I will have more points if I join commitees and stuff, which I will. My level, if I get it, is $2000.
Wedding--Smartypig has us covered. We have $5693.77 now.
big savings, now 2 accounts building up one to $15000--working on this
Zak's savings--He needs his savings and his college
retirement--I rolled over my PERS, so I now have a tradiational IRA and a Roth, and a 401k that i'm currently not contributing to.
checking--I will be going through PNC for my main checking. Keeping $25 in first merit, $25 in chase, and $1000 in schwab.
Freezer cooking--I have been freezing meals, working out well!!
healthier snacks--I am choosing healthy!! Though...I love my candy :)
The other day I spent 4 hours cleaning the house. I like to clean that way, but I dont like it taking up my entire day. I am going to adopt Colin's Stradegy over at Hip2Save starting next week.---Gotta get back on this too..
