5 Year Plan

For many many years now I have been in debt. Today I made an appointment to get help paying my debt off. In the next 5 years, I'm going to work towards the goal of paying my debt and getting life on track. Finally! It's a non-profit organization through goodwill industries that helps people get back on track. They turn no one away for an ability not to pay for the help, which is nice since I'm going to try to be debt free. Maybe someday I can repay them for the help. I'm actually kind of proud of myself for making this step finally. I figure if I can afford to live in this nice apartment, have a nice car, and be able to do things, then I can afford to pay off my stupidity from my young adult life.

my short term goal for this weekend is to clear out the crap in my place. I'm going to give stuff away or sell stuff on eBay. That's my short term goal.

a memo to my mom......I have a laptop I got from a lady on freecycle that works pretty good. I don't have time to use it like I thought I would, so if you want it, I'll give it to you. It runs slow, probably needs some work, but it's nice. Has a case and everything. just let me know.

update on Casey...I found an aloe Vera plant at walgreens for 74 cents. It needed to be repotted. The pot was 49cents. I got 2 plants and 2 pots. One for me and one for him. I replanted them both and found a cheesy "you're a great friend and you are doing so good and if you need me I'm here" card and stuck it in a bag and hung it on his door. He really liked it a lot and it really made him feel better.
I also told him anything I can do to help, I would do.

the people I nanny for are trying to have another baby. I'm excited! Means a little more job security for me. Day care would cost them almost 650 a week and I'm giving them one hell of a deal I think!! Bring on the baby! haha.

I'll have pictures to post in a while. There were birds chirping (still there) on my porch and lacy is just having a field day haha.

I'm not much for lap tops but I like playing with computers so if you want to bring it by I'll see what I can do with it.

Makes me sad to hear that, I thought you were out of debt and that I helped...guess not.
