More happy news

Things are going pretty good right now. Had a great week at work. I am really loving my job. I also had enough time to sew somethings up this week, which is always a bonus.

D is also having fun at work. I don't remember if I mentioned he's teaching 8th grade math this year. He's at a new school. We were a bit nervous because this school had a reputation, which apparently was quite unfounded. It's super close to our house, which is great. He's commuting a total of 20 miles a week! He's driving the van and I'm taking the car since it's more fuel efficient.

I have another job opportunity in the works that I'm really excited about. I'll post more about it as it gets closer. A friend is quitting her extremely part time job and is going to recommend me. This is a job that should help me towards my IBCLC.

The other fun news is we are very close to paying off our first credit card via debt snowball! If you aren't familiar with Dave Ramsey, you should get familiar with him! I'm really excited to see things start to pay off. We have set goals as a family and everyone is working towards this. People may think we're crazy for working all these extra jobs and never having any time, but we are really looking at the big picture...being debt free in two years.

We do well enough with D teaching, but we'll be slaves to debt forever at that rate. I'd like to be complete FREE from that burden.

Like Dave Ramsey says, "Live like no one else so you can live like no one else"
