|Still on the road at this point which allows me to minimize my expenses. Should be home in about three weeks, then we'll see how things go from there. It's October 1st and I should be expecting an increase in pay from my promotion on the next paycheck. All this, provided that my promotion doesn't get delayed until 1 November as I've been told. Expecting about $2300 approximately from my per diem... this should make for a pretty heavy impact on my Signature Loan. I'm still on track to get this thing knocked out by the new year. Fingers crossed.
As is pretty widespread at this point; I've been watching my retirement continue to decrease in value. I'm not sure if I should be thankful that my contributions have been reduced in order to get my debts knocked out, or if I should be regretting that I'm not taking advantage of the "sale" on stocks. Let's see how things go over the next two months. I just hope I'm not foregoing a major opportunity.
Braces are going well, still paying the min payment on it. I think I will think of it more as a continued service charge as opposed to a debt incurred.
Looking into getting lawn care and a cleaning lady for the house. I can't afford it considering my current state of affairs nor my budgeting, but I believe it would vastly improve my time spent at home and better my use of time. Once again, we'll see how it goes.|
