Money Problems, Yet Feeling Optimistic.

  1. So far, I'm enjoying the week. Less money stress, in spite of our account negative again, and being home does seem to work better for my nerves. I know we aren't out of the woods yet, and for awhile Corey will need me to work, but at least I can work less. I'm ready to only be out of the house 2-3 days a week instead of the 5 I'm used to.
    I know eventually we'll get our debt paid off and our savings back up, and by the time the baby comes we'll be there. In the meantime, I'll help out a bit by working a couple of days so we aren't both chasing our tails.
    Corey would rather we lived off of his salary, and we really can. I'll just be bringing in an extra couple hundred dollars to go toward paying off our credit cards and new mattress, putting a little extra toward paying off my car, and some new stuff for the baby. I'm 14 weeks along as of today but I know it goes by quickly.
    The beauty of being self employed is that I can work whenever I want. I don't have to work weekends and never see my husband. Plus I can better take care of him when his pain levels get too unmanageable or work so he can stay home.
    I'd like to find something that I can do from home though. Like maybe selling it works or shakeology. Maybe even doing something on eBay. I think I could really get there eventually.
    And until then, I go back to work tomorrow. I'm not looking forward to it. I really love being with my daughter, and having dinner with my family whenever Corey comes home from work. Finding this balance is hard for me.

    My wife and I are starting the new year and working on our money issues also. We are older and don't have kids but the cats make up for all that. I pray the Lord will prosper you and continue to offer you His peace.
