Holy Smokes, it's COLD!

Well, this is stating the obvious, but it is cold and nasty out there. ICK! My meeting for Thursday has already been cancelled and my meeting tonight got cut short because we didn't have a quorum.

Tom and I listened to the first Dave Ramsey CD last night. It's hard listening to him talk about how "easy" it is to get $1000 in the baby emergency fund and how we should do it quickly. I think it almost just underscores how little progress we've made in this journey. We've never been able to get past Baby Step 1. I'm trying really hard to keep a positive attitude. I do know we can't give up. We have to keep trying.

Good luck on the renewal of your journey! I know you can do it if you really work hard. I know how determined you can be!Just hang in there and be strong!

having the $1000 EF has really helped me feel less stressed. Can you have a garage sale or sell some things to help find the money? You'll get there!

Thanks Di. Louise, I think we sold just about anything of any value already when we built up $1000 in the EF. Every time we've built it up, we've had several emergencies (usually car related) that wipe it out.
