Financial Peace

So, we're taking the Financial Peace University class at our church.  I was pretty sure it wasn't worth the $95 because I'd already read "The Total Money Makeover", we've spent the last several years recovering from my husband's bankruptcy after his divorce from the ex and some student loans, we're in a really good place right now and I just got a new job that pays alotmore (yes, that can be one word if I want it to).  But it's giving some good pointers and will help us to keep saving and start investing.  Good stuff.  I'm a big fan of stuffing money into coffee cans, but I suppose I could be making a little interest off of it, huh?

After the disheartening loss to the Irish yesterday, I'm still as big of a Michigan fan as ever.  I'm not a sore loser.  I don't like being taunted by jerky winners, don't get me wrong.  But that game was pretty ugly.  The weather held out, though, which was nice.  All the rain and hail came early, so by the time we got there to tailgate, it was cool but dry, and watching the night game from the stands was quite fun and comfortable, even if I was surrounded by a lot of ND fans.  They're okay most of the time, just not when they're playing my team.  Or beating the pants off of them.  The only negative thing I have to say is, I think they should boil down their helmets and sell them to the "Cash 4 Gold" guy so they can feed a small country.

This new work week is really going to help me get organized.  I had this past Friday off for the first time, and I overhauled the house.  Dusted (which I despise), vacuumed, organized the closet and files in the office, disassembled an old computer I haven't used in quite awhile, sorted through all of the piles of papers and stuff in bags that's been collecting in the kitchen for weeks.  It just feels great.  I have more projects that need to be taken care of, so this coming Friday will prove to be helpful for that as well.  If I can tackle something different on each of my 'days off', so much will get accomplished, and I can't wait.  This house (and my sense of well-being) has needed it for quite awhile.

Finishing the Emmy Awards, and awaiting blissful sleep.  My nap was interrupted today by the husky who decided she needed to loudly inform me that the neighbor had friends over.
