Bonus, Insurance, Mortgage & Decor

April 5th, 2019 at 06:58 am

Well both the bonus and the health insurance came through. We decided to put back the $500 bonus for our vacation. Since it's already past time to buy plane tickets and such. The dirt pile can wait.


We have already deposited $60 into the HSA, but I have no idea where it is, or how to access it. So we will have to find that information out.

Paid my mortgage today, new balance is $114,114.20.

Had to buy more hay and pay for a vet bill so my animal fund is dwindling again. I can't wait to sell some goats and fully bulk that fund up so I don't have to keep pulling from my regular income.

We went wild crazy and spent over $600 this weekend of husband's overtime money. We got lots of stuff for the house including our remaining doors, door knobs, some decor, and we even printed and hung some pictures of us for the first time since we have been married... (Nearly 7 years. Embarrassment) I guess it just goes to show that we are finally settling in. It is SO FUN to actually get to decorate and style things, rather than make do with hand me downs and unfinished spaces. We are pushing hard to finish most of our in-progress projects because we are having several guests this month. We've been working every night on something.

We are about to completely finish the hallway and is it weird if I say it might be my favorite room in the house? I built a bookshelf that fits perfectly, and hanging above it is our personalized map with pins to all the places we have traveled. We both love travel and outdoors, so the room is adventure themed and we are going to cover it in pictures of us on all our vacations, and it has some mementos we have picked up along the way. Such as a bottle of sand from the desert, and a yellow rock from Yellowstone. Husband is an amateur photographer so we are printing his favorite landscapes to hang as well. It's nice to walk to our bedroom and remember all the good trips and fun we have had together.
