Checking In

January 28th, 2010 at 03:03 pm

I thought the whole month of January would pass by without being able to post an entry!! Busy month!!

I've been working on the end-of-year finance reports for my church PLUS a lot of extra hours at my regular job. Too busy for words...

Started the year 2010 with a whimper. My final dental bill is $625, which I'll pay next week. Plus the kid needed another root canal. What is it with OUR TEETH??? New dental insurance pays 50% (old dental insurance paid 20%)...still the bill for him is $600, which includes the crown.

Made some progress in 2009, but praying to consistently move forward. Trying not to focus on the time it takes to get where I want to get (it feels reaaalllly slowwwwwww). I love this time of year, because even if I MIGHT be discouraged about my progress, I'm reminded to just keep pushing forward. And be patient.

Same goals this year as last year--for the most part. I will not be discouraged. I've updated my sidebar and posted another post comparing my Dec 08 to my Dec 09 status. Cut down a few goals in an effort to focus. I really want to increase my retirement contribution, but in an effort to get my wealth account and house repair account up to the amounts I want, I'll delay the increase to retirement until I get a comfortable amount in these accounts. Failed appliances (and the resulting appliance purchases) last year cleaned out the house repair account. Time to get more realistic about that.

Are we ready? Forward march!
