Ah, December. Probably one of my most favourite months. I am a Christmas junkie. I LOVE Christmas. But this year, it just won't be the same. I will do my best though to remember that J is doing this deployment so that we can have many more Christmases, a family to create bigger Christmases, and a House to have thoses Christmases in :)
Things otherwise are going well. Work seems to make the days go by quickly. My parents will be here to celebrate with me, and then the cruise in January. I am actually looking forward to it.
I need to join the goals group and make some 2012 goals here too! I like watching folks like Nikki at Debt Free by Thirty periodically update her goals throughout the year.
I'm still working on my payoff plan for the updated debts that we will want to pay off with this new deployment. Even though J got paid today, it was only for 1 week of being there, so it's like a 'normal' paycheck. It will pay rent, car insurance, cell phone, water and our personal property taxes for the year.
Finally, time to update the blogroll! I've had these on my favourites list for a while and not sure why I never added them. But here they are! We may be poor, but we are happy, The Happy Homeowner, and Working for a Goal
