Journals, Busy Bees, and Debt

I'm going to try to write more often on here and make it more of a journal so let's all forget about the fact that I have a college degree in English and excuse all of those grammatical mistakes and misspelled words that I promise I'm going to make because, fuuuck, I'm tired and 2) grammar: shit, ain't nobody got time for that.

Jarod and I are back on track with our debt-free journey. He's gonna be working 12's to make the money, money, money and I'm going to raise, feed, bathe, drive, clean after, etc. those little people running around in our house, pretty much, by myself. I feel a bit like a single mom that magically has money appear in my bank account. The money thing is a plus but the lack of the hubs - not-so-much.

Aiden starts Kindergarten, another session of swimming lessons, and soccer all in the same week. I'm scared.

I'm probably spreading myself too thin. I'm not sure where I'm even going to find the time to pee, especially since I already don't have time for that as is. But I have an idea of what I want for my kids and how I want to parent so dammit, I'm going to try.

We got a puppy, named Bella, because I don't feel like I have enough responsibility (sarcasm). But really, she's amazing and we're so in love. I'll explain more about her in a different post that includes: dogs, pregnancy, and depression. Trust me they're all related.

The kids are crazy and great.

The hubs is amazing and never fails to amaze me with his awesomeness.

I'm so grateful me and him are on the same page with our finances and I'm really excited to get some ish paid off! We have a 4-5 year plan to getting out of debt and into a house (through the recommended course of Dave Ramsey). If you haven't heard of him, look him up. Best financial advice we have ever received and I'm so thankful we came across his message.

There's so many sacrifices we're going to be making in the next few years (12 hour shifts at work for him and 12 hour shifts at home with the kids for me: we decided mine is worse) that will determine our quality of life for the remainder of our lives.

I always feel stupid and cheesy for saying this but really though, yay for financial freedom!!

Yep, still feel stupid.

Byyyye! (grace face)
