Initially, there was a lot that I wanted to share, but mentally I just can’t. Between the devastating hurricanes, having to explain to people why we kneel, and the latest shootings in Las Vegas, where I was just this past Monday and Tuesday, I am simply unable to can. So this debt payoff report will be short and abbreviated so that I can get back to focusing on my self-care. A lot has changed for us since the last Debt Payoff Report. Marcus and I are both adjusting to this new life where I’m spending a majority of my time…

Is it just me or did Mother Nature turn the heat off as soon as September rolled around? It’s September 2nd, and I’m curled up on my couch with thick fuzzy socks on, wrapped up in a big blanket, and wondering if I should’ve consumed some sort of Pumpkin Spice flavored beverage by now.

I for one am excited that June is over as the month slapped me around like I stole something! As most of these jobs pay…

  I am super proud of Marcus and for sticking to our budget during the month of May. We ended the month with $117 left over in our budget, and I’m still trying to figure out how. HOW SWAY? This was one of the busiest months we’ve had so far this year, and it was all due to family coming into town for my graduation. One of our guest bedrooms was basically a catchall room and has been ever since we purchased our home back in 2013. While I’d slowly been decluttering it, we had to go into overdrive to make…
