Another day older

February 15th, 2007 at 08:00 pm

"Today I am one more day closer to paying off my debt".

That sure puts everything in perspective for me. I feel better already.

Today I took my daughter for another free opinion on her braces. The estimate was higher, the message was still the same.

My daughter's teeth are dropping to fill the gaps left by adult teeth that never grew in on the bottom. She is 14. Her mouth is a train wreck. It was funny that when we asked her if she was happy with her smile, she said that she was. I guess I did raise some well adjusted kids.

I made an appointment to go back to the first orthodontist in two months. In that time, I have to save $500 for the down and figure out how I'm going to squeeze in an extra $121 per month into my already very limited budget. I don't even have anything left to sell anymore.

I bought a candy bar at work today and went out for lunch at a restaurant. It was, I think, the first time in 6 or 8 months. It was nice. I won't be doing it again for another 6 or 8 months. On the brighter side, the change went into my change jar.

I think I'm going to name my change jar "Cruise". I heard it helps to save change if you actually have a goal.

I'm working overtime tomorrow and next Saturday (whooppee!). It's easier to leave the kids at home during the day then at night. I know they are in their teens. It just seems that they need me so much more now.

I hope all of you also had a wonderful day.

    I think I would rename the jar "Braces"!

    That is too funny. I save so little in change because I don't have any money to spend. I figure I'll go on a cruise after I retire. I'm 42. I'm looking at 55 for retirement age. I never even thought about "braces"!
