I’m dumb.

So, this came in the mail this week. (the lotus flower “blanket”)

I apparently don’t enjoy reading because the description of the product clearly says it’s a “security blankie or changing mat.” I thought it was a straight up blanket. So imagine my dismay when I open it and it’s 18″ x 19″ – I felt cheated and wronged and like the woman who runs the etsy store must have sent me the wrong thing.

Oh no, I’m just a moron. I suppose I’ll get use out of it, but I was flabbergasted.

I’m still waiting on the owl blankie.

I’m also still waiting on taking a nap and wanting to leave work and never come back. Stay tuned for those.

I did the math.

And I’m ashamed.

Over $14,000 in credit card debt. Some was a necessary evil (cats getting ill). Some was for fun (a few vacations and whatnot). Most I don’t remember anymore.

However, I’m realizing that I’m done. No more credit cards. I’m taking them out of my wallet, and they’re being deposited into the famed block of ice.

The husband and I have discussed our debt, and to us, any sort of “family expansion” should really wait until we have the majority of this paid off. Which not only breaks my heart, but makes me kick myself because I mostly got us into this mess and now I have to find a way to get us out.

I’ve been paying it down as much as possible, but it’s not doing much. Once the hubby’s dream job really kicks in, we’ll make a bigger dent. But I’m still worried that a year from now, I’ll still be staring at those goddamn balances wondering when we’ll ever get out of debt.

So, since other bloggers have somehow managed to wrangle some additional cash via their blogs, I’m doing it too.

This is not tax deductible. This is simply you loving me, and loving me enough to help a lady out. :)

Yeah, this is totally lame and rude and probably the worst idea ever, but I’m doing it. Mostly because, shy of cashing out my 401K…I don’t know how we’ll ever pay all of this off. I’ll be making updates to our debt totals bi-weekly.

Resolutions, part deux.

  1. Pay off debt.

    We have debt. Lots of it. More than I thought we would ever have. Thus, I wish to pay it all off. Hopefully, with my promotion and the husband’s dream job, we’ll be able to take care of it by mid-summer. I cannot wait.

  2. Fix up the damn house already.There’s about 400 minor things I’d like to do to the house that I haven’t done yet. Like paint the kitchen, guest room, (basically the whole house), insulate the attic, replace the backdoors, etc. A lot of them are cheap, but I just haven’t taken the step to do it. I’d like to spend every weekend tackling a new project (or at least continuing the previous weekend’s project). We have plans for later this year, and I’d like to get the little things out of the way before then. :)

So, there you have it. My New Year’s Resolutions. And I blogged two days in a row! In your face, Internets.

Holy hormones.

I’m sitting at work, listening to a podcast of my favorite morning show on a local classic rock station, and James Taylor just played a song live on the air, and I teared up at my desk.

James Taylor.

If anyone EVER questions why being a woman is pain in the ass – reference this post (you know, along with obvious other reasons like childbirth and dealing with men in general). I effing can’t stand James Taylor on any given day. And yet, PMS forces tears to well in my eyes while sitting in my cube at 3pm in the afternoon.

Still feeling hungover.

WTF. I was NOT hammered enough Saturday night to warrant 2 days of hangover. This is ridiculous. I feel like I’m being punished for not following through with my original sobriety plan before the walk.

But I did have fun. I have to keep reminding myself of that. (I also have a pulled quad muscle to remind me as well.)
