We're still alive - update!

April 2nd, 2008 at 07:42 pm

I haven't had much to say lately but that's because...well, I haven't had much to say!

DH's business is picking up after the pre-Easter slump. My job is going well. I really do like it now that I know what I'm doing. I still don't get enough hours, though, and that's my only real complaint. This week I get 23 hours. I picked up a 4 hour cashier shift yesterday, which was one of my scheduled days off, and hoped they'd call me today, which is another day off, to take one but they didn't. Ah well, such is life! We're still making it and things are improving.

We've had a few slips in the smoking cessation department but they're minor in the scheme of things. We've saved so much money - it's amazing. And we feel so much better, too!

The envelope system is still working beautifully for us as long as we stick with it. That's the hard part but we're still working it.

Financial Peace University is rockin' along. This week was the 'Big Bargains' lesson. DH is the king of bargains so other than one thing Dave mentioned, it was old news to us. It sure was fun to watch Dave talk about it, though!

So, that's about it for me for right now.

    Glad to hear from you!

    Nice to know that the system works when you work it. Big Grin

    Glad that you are getting some extra hours that should help as is the increase in business. It seems that your husband has the heart of an entrepeneur so it's nice that this business seems to be taking off! YEAH YOU GUYS!!!
