Poop on the Weather/Strep throat

So we are not having a garage sale this weekend. There is supposed to be scattered thunderstorms and it will only be 60. I am not sure when the garage sale will take place, but it is eminent. Hopefully, once the garage sale is completed we'll have an extra bedroom and the house might be decent enough for guests to visit.

In other debt free news (lol), it feels as though we are sliding backwards. On Sunday I visited the ER. We just paid off medical debt a month ago. Here comes more. On a good note, I think the wisdom teeth payoff will happen as planned. Sallie Mae might take longer with medical debt edging her out of the number 1 spot. It feels like a vicious cycle. Pay off debt in one month and add more the next. I am looking for an end. It feels like it will never end, but we HAVE killed debt. We are NOT in the same place we were before. It just feels hopeless. But it isn't. And until it is over, I will have to keep reminding myself that it's not. We will win. Eventually...

Pray for us.

Garage Sale

Pending the weather reports (I won't hold a garage sale in under 70 degree weather that isn't sunny), I intend to have a garage sale next weekend. Wish me luck.

Car for Sale

I now have a car for sale on Craigslist. I don't know if it will sell or not, but if I do, then I plan on using the 50/50 plan. 50% of the money goes to another vehicle to replace it, and the other 50% goes towards debt. I don't know if/whether this will work out or not. I am completely unsure of myself right now.

Annoying redirections are over

I had a "debt countdown" that was causing the page to redirect to "" I have removed this widget, and that has fixed this error, so neither of my readers should experience this annoying problem anymore.

Car Selling

I am possibly thinking of selling the Prius to pay off all of the debt. We don't owe on the car, but it isn't in the best looking condition, and we are waiting on the claims department of another insurance company to repair damage done to it by one of their insurees (I have no idea what to call the guy who hit our car in the Walmart parking lot in November).

Selling it would pay off all of our debt instantly. But then we would need a reliable car and would have no money to purchase one. We could possibly use the upcoming tax return to purchase a car, but the amount of time that we would have in between purchasing a car and selling the Prius is sketchy.

This would benefit us in that the Hubby could quit his 2 extra jobs, and I wouldn't need to child sit.

And life would be PERFECT.


But it might be nicer and just a little bit easier.

I think this ease would be better than any car I could ever own.

More on this later.

New Job

Now the wifey has a job. I will be babysitting a 4 year old and a 1 and a half year old. This puts us about $200 away (a month) from paying off all of our debt this year! We are going crazy!!!
