So march is here already and I have been working my butt off. I am very tired but keep telling myself 10 more months and the goal will be ours. We have a decent cushion in the bank account and because of that we are looking good. Our biggest struggle being gamers and such is not to spend that money. If you are a gamer or know one you understand what I am talking about. We love new games and toys to play with. It sucks but we have faith that we can do this. I believe we will have a house and be moving mid feb or early march. This month I have 4 days off. Yes 4 Days off so I will be MIA for most of the month but it will be nice money.

Our Goal

Its coming along nicely I must say. We are saving for a house. Yes that means me and the husband have been working 6 days a week to stock pile money. It feels good to be able to have money in the bank. We thought once taxes were done we were getting 3000 back which we got state and not federal yet but yesterday we got another form in the mail and when the husband re figured taxes out we will get an extra 3500 back. That means the first 3000 will pay credit cards off and the the 3500 and the husbands 1500 bonus from work can go directly into savings. Yippie. What a great start to the year. Our goals are as follows:

1. No big purchases
2. Eat out very limited
3. Work 6 days a week
4. Start looking at houses the end of the year
5. Have a house by Feb 1 2011

We have many upcoming events that we are looking forward too. The following is our plans. These plans are all paid for already and were planned before we starting our savings plan.

March 1 10 years together husband and me
March 5the Pictures at Sears
March 24 Sybaris
May 6th Fireside Cinderella
May 22 Chris Daughtry/Lifehouse/Covo

I much say this are on the up swing around here and I am LOVING it =) Stick Around I will post photos from our events. I hope everyone is doing well drop a line to let me know you were here.

When Life Hands You Lemons...

I say Beat the shit of it and demand florida oranges too. Life has been very busy recently and its not slowing down anytime soon. I am working 2 jobs and now I start Kickboxing water aerobics at the YMCA 2 days a week with some family. I feel like all I do is work but we want a house next year and thats what its going to take to get one. With taxes we will pay of credit cards and then have some to save and then the husband is getting a bonus check that will start of savings for a house. That will be like 1500 to start out. Im excited about this process and cant wait to get a house. It will be nice to have a place to call home.
Me and the husband had to sit down and have a conversation about partnership. In my eyes marriage is a partnership no matter what the split in bill or responsibilty. I believe that everything should be discussed between both parties when something is being done that is more long term than short term. I felt very disrespected last weekend and we had a day and half of heated arguement on who was right. I told him my feelings and why I felt that way and he told me his reasons. I still dont agree with the choice or reasons but I think he bettter understand that we are married and he should include me in all decisions. I hope in the future we never have to go over that talk again. What is your policy in your marriage? Is it 50/50 or is one party got more control that the other? Let me know would love to hear your ways.

Busy, Work, Sleep, Sick!

I have been very busy recently. First of all I was sick for the last two weeks. I had strep last week then the antibiotic was not working went back and they said I had bronchitis. I am currently on 3 meds (an antibiotic, inhaler and steroids) and today I feel the best I have in over 2 weeks. I came home cleaned my whole house had a birthday party for a friend (ice cream cake and pizza and cards) It was lots of fun.
From now till Feb 19th I have like 4 days off. Its ok I really need the money right now. It will be nice to stock some money and maybe go on vacation this summer. I will be working over full time for the first time in probley 4 years but I will be fine when I see that pay check.
You may be wondering how we pay our bills with me not working as much but my husband has a great job and he handles the bills well. The only one he wont pay is my student loans which is fine I can handle that.
Tonight is a low key night in our house the husband is still sleeping I am going to start dinner and we are going to watch hangover which I heard is very good. I hope you guys are all doing well. I will post again soon but who knows when with my schedule lol.

Oh Where Oh Where

Have I been! Drowning in this JUNK that is in this house. But fear no more it is almost gone and I can breath again. That's right my husband decided that it was time we did a little house cleaning (getting rid of junk my house is always clean) We got rid of old magazines, a high chair, books, old dishes, pots and pans and I must say the apartment is much nicer. We still have 2 closets to clean out a bed to move and a few things to put up but overall the place looks and feels nice. The in laws came and got a lot of the junk and either gave it away or dropped it at the dump. We rearranged our bedroom which I must say I love. It seems like a nice change and I can even display my Eeyore collection.

Did I ever mention my husbands family loves collecting things and well I kinda got hook on too. I collect Eeyore stuff no matter what its is and I have lots of it thanks to the in laws and my mom Thanks guys =) My husband collects Simpson's stuff and He-Man things. My mom collects Raggedy Ann and Andy things. My father in law things made out of metal and old keys. My Sister in law Superman stuff. And my Mother in law Smiley Face stuff and Boy if you had a chance to see her room WOW. Yes she has a whole room of smiley stuff from floor to ceiling and every inch of the room is packed full. Its Awesome and I will have to see if she can get me a picture of it. An undated photo that is. So yes this junk is going and we can breath again!

And After 7 years we finally have begun to hang more things on the walls for display and it looks very nice. So Between 2 jobs, being sick (strep throat 2nd time in 2 months) and Cleaning I sure have been busy.

What collections do you have?

Its freezing here in wisconsin and does not look like its going to warm up anytime soon. I am now working 2 jobs so my time off is limited but the money is nice. We are in the process of moving things around the apartment and getting rid of stuff we dont use. We are getting a king bed tomorrow from a family member and it will be nice to have a big bed. This means we have to move stuff out of our bedroom to make room but once thats done it will be nice. So tomorrow in the freezing temps lol we will be moving stuff and hauling the bed here. I am headed to my sister in laws soon to hang out for the night which should be fun. I look forward to getting out of the house and enjoying my night. We will probley go out to eat and just hang out with the kids fun times. Stay warm and have a good week =)
