End of the Work Week

So some exciting news, I am going to be putting an offer in on a house.  It's perfect, and even though we were going to wait for J to come home from Afghanistan before finding a house, this one is too good to pass up.  J has given me the job of doing this.

It's really overwhelming.  I know this house is just right, but it's a lot of money and responsibility to have our own house.  I'm just nervous at doing this for the first time, and essentially on my own. 

Our credit scores have also improved again.  So while this really doesn't have an affect on the VA loan we qualify for, it's a nice accomplishment for both of us.

So today will be my 11th no spend day.  Still on track to meet 15.

And yesterday I went to the county fair with a group from my Tae Kwon Do school.
I also will receive my Bo Dan Belt (1 below black belt) which basically means I am 1st Dan eligible now.
Big accomplishment for me since I have so many injuries that cause a lot of pain, even just to train.

I hope this last work day goes by quickly, and I can have this weekend to just relax (except for that whole off thing! haha)  Wish me luck!

Congrats! That's a lot of responsibility to pick the house, but I'm sure you did a great job!

And congrats on the 11 no spend days.

Will she make the 15???? hmmm

Congrats on the credit score improvement. I know you've really been going at it so that is awesome in itself and I would have never guessed you were schooled in martial arts. That is super awesome and you are almost a black belt as well. I admire you.
