Wow!! Been a long long time...

I just got to looking at my blog and noticed that it has been a long time since I have blogged. Well in that time we have moved out of the camper, paid off a majority of our debts and have a little one due in September. Things have CHANGED in that amount of time drastically. I am 17 weeks along now and praying EVERYDAY that this baby makes itself comfortable for the next few months and allows time for it to get healthy and big. So I guess this Blog has now offically changed from camper living to the joys of pregnancy and getting ready. Please keep us in your prayers!

First Night!!

First night in the camper was Great!! We are now all moved out of the apartment and the hubby starts his new job Wednesday. Everything is starting to fall into place. I was going over our budget last night and I can't wait to get started on paying this debt off. It won't take long now. I have about two more weeks of this semester and have a little break between semesters. Going to be real busy during that little break though. Well back to my accounting homework.

A Few Favorite Postsecret Secret’s from this week

So I will start this out by saying that I found this website about a year ago. It started out as a community art project to allow people to send in anonymous postcards with their secrets on them. They have raised a bunch of money for suicide prevention and I think it is such a great idea. Some of these “secrets” really hit home.

Each week I wait, wait and wait for each Sunday..or for my little “secret” (I can’t wait and I cheat to see if they posted on Saturday night)

So each week I am going to try to post my favorites. They might not all pertain to me, but some might just stick out to me.


This one is a little cheer on for me since I’m going back to school. I was working at a local factory until two weeks ago making about $7.50 an hour and every evening that I would walk into that place I would look forward to getting off work to go home and study. Ironically, this secret pops up this week.



This one is just great!



This one reminds me of my mother. I love that woman and one of my favorite things about Christmas season is spending time at their house and hear her singing Christmas songs while making her most famous Christmas cookies.

2 Week Countdown Begins

Well two weeks from now we will be living in a camper!! We still have quite a bit to do with packing and moving, but it will all get done. It has to, we are now on a time limit. I have been trying to keep my head up with everything. I think I’m just stressing out, because we have a time limit. I have been working at my new job for a week and a half now and I LOVE it. I am only working part time, but my second week they have asked me to work full time this week due to another department’s assistant being out next week for vacation. I am pretty proud of that. My boss actually got a call from human resources Friday and they also wanted me to come to their office and help out with some stuff they were behind on. He got off the phone and said “My gosh, you are a wanted woman.” Something to be proud of for my second week of the new job. Maybe it will just turn into a full time position permanently.

Another note: Hunting season has begun!! What was I thinking trying to schedule a move during hunting season. Hubby went hunting all day today. I guess his gun wasn’t sighted in and he missed a 9 point buck.

No “modern day” conveniences

So I have been thinking lately how our lives have been “bogged down” with all these different things taking up so much of our time. My friend and I were talking about how we always say we don’t have time, we don’t have time. I do agree that sometimes things get very busy, but at the same time some of the things that are taking up our time are so worthless. We say we don’t have time to meet a good friend for lunch, but we have time to sit in front of the computer on Facebook for two hours. When I get home from work the husband lays down on the couch and starts up the TV and I go directly to my laptop. I am so tired of it. That is one thing that I look forward to simplifying my life. Now don’t get me wrong I love the internet as much as the next person, but I think that it has gone to the point that I am addicted. I feel that technology has spoiled us to the point that we wouldn’t know what to do without it. I feel that I am going to get a lot more done with my schoolwork also. I am not going to be able to run to my computer every time I want to check what my Facebook friends have posted. I am looking forward to my simplified life.

New Part Time Job!!

So I went to an interview on Wednesday for an Administrative Assistant in Purchasing. I GOT THE JOB!! I got the call on Thursday and I am so excited. I am going to try to work my full time job and the part time for a little while until next semester begins. I want to jumpstart this debt reduction thing with a bang. I am going to try to just hold the part time job when next semester begins so I can go to night classes.

This week I also rented our storage building so we can begin to move the stuff in there and get started with everything.
