Friday, Free day!

     I was able to get all the sewing due out this week done yesterday so I could have a free day.  This is a day to catch up on laundry, ironing and few projects I want to do in the shop.  I have some flowers I want to plant.  Maybe work in the yard a little.  Take mom out to get some fun.

     New goals for the month are to pay off the overdraft protection, a little over $900.00  I also want to pay off another bill a little over $1400.00.   I almost have enough for the Overdraft loan.  I set up my addsense account pay and with what I have in my checking left from last month and the addsense monies and my my work I think I will be able to do this as soon as the addsence money comes in.  So my only goal will be the later bill.  I also want to complete chart #8 and see if I can get into chart # 10.

     After these bills are paid I will have two others besides mom's loan.  Again my plan is to only owe money on the house by the New Year.  This is if nothing happens and youngest does not announce she is getting married.

     I am paying off all these little bills in the order of interest and balance.  But every time I get one paid I add the payment total to the next bill.  Let me tell you the snowball method works.   Getting the house loan and the studio lock paid adds another $500.00 a month to our income so these smaller bills go fast.  When all these little bills are paid I can add another $500.00 a month so I can really sock out the house loan. Now if it would only help me get the dining room painted.

     Well I am off to pay the bills, drive around town and deliver to save stamps (it is a small town) I am going to put together 2 skirts, and make a few baby blankets and burb clothes, I am on a roll.  I think I will take mom out to lunch.

Have a great and productive day staying positive while you are in the negative.
