Guess what I'm getting tomorrow?!

A brand new baby nephew, that's what!!!

I'm so excited. Mommy to be goes in at 1pm tomorrow for induction and I have the honor of being invited to be her doula! Can't wait!

This has been a crazy week. I'm not sure why, I've gotten nothing accomplished, but it just seems to have been rather chaotic.

We have a new goal in our "get out of debt" plan. Starting January 1, all "extra" moneay (what's that?) will go to pay down our truck loan. Our goal is to have it totally paid off within a year. Then, the next year we'll start on the car. Both vehicles should last us quite a while so we could have a few years with NO VEHICLE PAYMENT! Wouldn't that be nice!

We also turned off our cell phones saving us $160 a month. We are just trying to cut out any extras, as we have gotten a bit caught up in the world and the things we think we need that we don't.

With all the cuts we've made so far we right now have an extra $260 a month in our pockets. Doesn't sound like much but when you live paycheck to paycheck it's a lot!
Too bad we need heat and lights and insurance or we could really be swimming in extra cash hehe.

Must go finish making dinner!
