01/31/07 still on the overtime

Yesterday my wife hit my car.  Somehow it was my fault that she hit it while backing out.  Let me tell you that caused a huge fight but she sweetly told me she was wrong this morning and gave me sweet kisses so of course I forgive her.  Even if she doesn't mean it I'm glad she admitted that a man in bed asleep can't be responsible the movements of his wife's minivan.

I'm on the overtime train again, I should be going 10 days straight and then have 4 days off before I do it again.  I'm super close to paying off the Sedona and I'm thrilled!  That will be an extra few bucks a month in the pocket and if the taxes and the tax rebate work out alright I should be done with both cars by summer!

I've been on the eliptical every day for the past three days.  I'm at the point where I could go for a couple of hours a day if I had the time.  That's one purchase that I don't regret at all yet.

01/07/2008 Happy New Year

It's a week after the new year and it's time to set new goals that I won't meet.  The newspapers are buzzing about the R word so I'm afraid that I don't have forever to work overtime so my first goal this year is to get out of debt.

My second goal is to get into better shape.  I haven't done a bit of exercise in 8 years so I'm not expecting that I'll be in shape but I expect to be in better shape.  I've purchased an eliptical and I've been on it about every other day for the past month.  I'm finally at the point where it's my heart and lungs that give out when I work out so I know that it's making a difference.  I'll be happy if I can just work out 20 minutes a day and not have it be the worst part of the day.

No goal to read 100 books this year.  I'm afraid I fell far short but I have read quite a few and I'm happy to report that it was well worth the time spend.

Happy new year all of you and I hope this is the year all your wishes come true.
