CC Payment & Raise

December 7th, 2018 at 07:34 am

I made a $513 payment towards my home CC with my web design check. That brought my balance under the next thousand mark and I am only $29 from completing my payoff goal for the year!

CC balances are $6,922 & $5,637 for a total of $12,559.

Paid the mortgage and the balance is now $114,713.47.

I've been really down this week. With the car problems, major website emergencies, sickness, etc. Just feeling exhausted and want to hide and forget about my responsibilities. Husband is feeling it too. We had about a million things to do this weekend and he just found out he has to work 12 hour days. We are both just wiped.

BUT I was surprised that in my web design check I got a $5 a hour raise across the board. Before I was getting paid two different rates depending on the job, if I was working through the company or freelance, etc. Now I am going to be making the same on everything. That will be so much simpler to keep track of and also the extra money is nice.

Kitty is still at the vet and I'm told she did fine. I get to pick her up when I get off work. I'm so excited. I can't believe how empty the house felt without her, even for one day. She brings such joy to our life.

I have another goat sold next week, but I need to get some vet care done on my horse so it comes out to a wash.

Cars & Cats

December 5th, 2018 at 06:52 am

All bills and personal credit cards are paid, money is put back for this week's normal expenditures, and I have $7 left!

Bad news is that the new car battery did NOT fix my car like expected which means it has a much more expensive problem than we thought. I could not start it at all today and had to take my husband's car to work. Ugh. Looks like it will be going in the shop.

Also my kitten is getting fixed tomorrow, so I will need to come up with the money for that. That will be no problem when I get paid on Monday. I am really worried for her though, she had a terrible reaction to her first set of shots and almost died. We have no idea how she will do with the rabies vaccine and/or anesthesia. So I'm nervous. I will discuss my concerns with the vet before surgery.

I received an even better offer for the credit card I was planning on transferring our big balances to in January. Last month the offer was 14 months interest free, they sent me a new one for 18 months interest free. We will definitely still try to pay the balance within 14 months or sooner, but it's nice to have a bit more wiggle room.

Web design is overflowing right now. But so much so that it is stressing me out. Hoping I get the time to sit down and work a lot of hours to cut down on some of the projects hanging over my head. The income will certainly be nice!
