Thursday Notes and Updates

Job Situation:  No changes yet. See here about my job issues.   My current position is still being advertised online and in the paper.  I have not heard anything at work, but I imagine I will be the last to hear.  I am still looking elsewhere for another position.  I feel like a "lame-duck" tech.  Just there until they find something better.

Debt Repayment:  Last week, I received my final paycheck from my former employer which included my sick leave and vacation time.  It was enough to pay off my credit card balance of 4300.00 dollars.  Cha-Ching!!    But I still have a huge credit card balance ($11,000.00) we have put all of our new home repairs and remodeling on that card.  Yea.... I know.... cash is better, but the updates were needed.  Hoping to slow this down in the next few months.

AVON:  I liked selling AVON, but since we moved and I changed jobs, I have lost my customer base.  Putting that on the back burner for now. 

Plans for the next week include: Re-establishing my ING sub-accounts.  Since the move and my husbands and myself job changes, I stopped all auto withdrawals.  Our pay periods changed and I was waiting for the direct deposits from employers to start again. 

I am also going to update my $500 HOLIDAY CHALLENGEChristmas will be here before you know it!

I'm sorry about your job issues. Good job on the repayment though!

great update - but it is surely a bummer about the avon & the current job

So sorry to hear about your job...it must be very frustrating not knowing when they will say you have to go..not a good work environment for sure. I've been thinking about the $500 Christmas challenge a lot. I'm not sure I will make it, as I don't have nearly as many "freebies" as I thought I might have. But I KNOW I will do much better than last year!

Hi Sharon,
Yes the job thing is frustrating, but I am going to try to make the best of it. And as far as the Christmas Challenge.... I am sure we will both do MUCH BETTER than last year! :)
