Wow, it’s been awhile. Sorry for the delay in posting, I have been gone to various camps with kids from our church, and have been out of touch with the “real” world. It is during hectic times like this that I am so glad for auto-bill-pay services from our bank and auto-drafts for other bills. In the past, being gone for 10 days would have led to me coming home to a pile of bills to take care of and a mass of confusion figuring out due-dates and catching up. Now, all of my financial “doings” are taken care of with online-bill-pay and auto drafts. I can easily balance my check books and check on my savings and investing. If you are not using the online-bill-pay functions of your bank, get to it now.
Quick debt-reduction update. I now owe less than 3 Thousand dollars TOTAL on the three autos we own. It has been well over 15 years since I owed less than 3 Thousand dollars in auto debt. I borrowed to pay for my first car when I was 17, and have been in car debt ever since. It is going to feel wonderful come October 1 when I do not owe anyone anything on the cars we are driving. Cool.
Back with much more tomorrow… Oh yeah, on a sad note, something got into our chicken pen and killed all of our chickens. I must re-think my chicken pen designs.
Brighter note… I have lost 5 pounds of the 40 I want to lose. I am doing mostly low-gly carbs and proteins, and walking 4 miles everyday.
