It has been 1 year since we re-financed our mortgage.  At the time, I posted two posts about it; the first was going over my to-do list for the renewal, and the second was all the details of our new mortgage. While I am still waiting for the renovations to be actually completed, I am … Continue reading 1-Year Mortgage Anniversary ...

This post was supposed to go up yesterday… But, well, I wasn’t that organized… Oh well. Time is just flying by… Can you believe that there are only 2 months left of 2017?!? With the ever-present chaos in our house, I’m still struggling to get all the data required for these updates, but let’s just … Continue reading November 2017 – Financial Update ...

While we’ve been waiting for the renovations to proceed, I’ve been looking for ways to keep my spirits up (it’s hard living in chaos), and since I am excited about the new kitchen, and the cabinets are finally getting installed in the kitchen, I thought it might be fun to explore where I would put … Continue reading 'New Kitchen Layout ...

I read this article last week:  The Only One It was a link in an email from Cait Flanders… It immediately made me want to do something.  I flipped to my email and sent a note to a friend that I’d been meaning to get in touch with for months… She’d had a pretty bad car … Continue reading Send Love… ...

After the first week of meal planning, which I wasn’t really sure if it was a success… I took some of the advice I received and continued, though I didn’t concern myself as much with things staying on the exact day they were assigned… Here’s how things went… Week 2: My meal plan in my … Continue reading September Focus Results ...

So, let’s not talk about how I fell off the blogging wagon… again… Let’s just move on, shall we? Unfortunately, because of the chaos in our house with the renovations, the computer that I have stored my normal spreadsheet with all my financial stuff is packed away in a dark corner of my basement, so … Continue reading October 2017 – Financial Update ...

When I started this blog, I sort of thought I’d be more in the personal finance genre, but, honestly, I don’t think I ever really fit that mould, and, if I had to classify my blog, I guess I’d put it in more of a lifestyle category… But only my lifestyle… not a stylish lifestyle… … Continue reading Baby Step 3, or 4, or Both? ...

At the beginning of the year I made myself 5 personal goals.  I haven’t done any posts summarizing how those goals are going so far this year, so I think it is high time for me to do just that… So, here it goes… Goal #1 was to visit with friends and family at least … Continue reading Personal Goals Update ...
