Anniversary trip

Tom and I have our 20th anniversary coming up this December. This week, I found a deal through Google Offers to stay for two nights at this Bed & Breakfast in Oklahoma City. I am super excited! Now the room is already paid for and we'll just need to save up money for whatever we want to do while we're there.

Making Progress: debt update

Well, I haven't updated our debts in a while. Yesterday, we were able to settle another credit card one, so that puts us down to two credit cards. They are big ones, so they'll take a while to get paid off.

We are down to around $250 on the 2007 tax bill and all the tax portion is paid off so it should quit accumulating interest. The 2006 tax bill is still up in the air. I haven't got another bill since I made the payment last month and I don't know if they've ever corrected it. I need to call them, but as you can imagine, making phone calls during the day here is almost impossible. I'll be adding the $25 from the credit card we settled yesterday to the 2007 tax bill and God willing, that will be paid off by July. Then that money will roll onto the 2006 tax bill, and so on. Let's get that debt snowball rolling!!!!

$200 towards student loans
$118.02 + $75 towards our Napa bill (PAID!!!!)
$386.78 towards our 2007 tax bill
$125 towards our 2006 tax bill
$300 towards one credit card
$345 towards one credit card (settled in full-so PAID!!!!!!)
$75+388.26 towards one credit card (settled in full-so PAID!!!!!!)
$200 towards one credit card
$400 towards our Bass hospital bill
Bass physician’s bill $35.50
$18.80+26.91 for  doctor bills
$1077.27 towards our house
$333.36 for 2011 real estate taxes
$340 for 2011 Oklahoma income taxes

For a total of: $4444.90

What a busy and fast weekend

Well, this weekend went by in a blur!

Friday night, we went out to dinner with our friends to celebrate my birthday (coming up tomorrow!) and then we went to Lowe's to get a new turbine for our roof (ours got destroyed in the storm a few weeks ago) and to Wal-Mart to get gifts for Saturday's wedding shower and Sunday's birthday party.

Saturday morning, we got up and mowed/weed-eated and then cleaned house in preparation for Serenity and her husband Anthony coming. Saturday evening, we went to the wedding shower at the church. That was alot of fun!

Sunday morning was church, then home and heading off to Enid with Tasha, Serenity, and Anthony to meet Josh for lunch before Serenity and Anthony headed home. That was the first time we'd all been together since Christmas so I really enjoyed that. Then last night was our great-niece's birthday party. The only thing that could have made yesterday better would have been if I had not had a sick headache all day long, which neither Aleve or Excedrin Migraine medicine even touched. (and still have it this morning!).

Hope everyone had a fabulous weekend and I am so looking forward to a 3 day weekend coming up!
