keeping my nose to the grindstone

Work has been keeping me busy lately, hence the lack of posts. Things are supposed to slow down soon so time will be on my side again. Since my trip to NM I've had nothing but time to think and think I have. Most of it has been devoted towards figuring out a new career since I've had little resources for anything else. I'll cover this in my next post in better detail.

This was a bonus check month as well as a milestone in my debt relief. I payed off a consolidation loan this month which was taken out in January. Now is when that snowball starts rolling faster towards debt freedom. I do have one last hurdle in that I'm hoping I'll be approved for a credit union credit card so that I can balance transfer debt from a bank credit card. Right now, even though I'm paying $100 over the minimum monthly due, I'm being hit by a finance charge which wipes that clean. I'm through with major banks and am moving all my accounts to the credit unions I belong to before the end of next year. Regardless of how that turns out I'll be paying off 3 major loans in the next 6 months and freeing up over a third of my income.

My little baby girl, Bridgette, turns 7 tomorrow and officially becomes a senior citizen. I really don't have the words to describe what she means to me and leave it to those of you who have or had a pet that meant the world to you. That being said I look forward to sharing my life with her for another 7 or more years. If you haven't picked up on it already. My beagle, one of the notorious gluttons of the canine world, was born on Thanksgiving day. Yes, she's gonna have a turkey dinner with all the trimmings too!
