So I finally joined Facebook. I have heard it mentioned in conversations for a long time now. But I wasn't sure I wanted to add myself into the mix.
It has been really fun!
I have found family members, childhood friends, friends from high school, old mission companions, and friends that I see everyday at the gym. I love it. It is so fun to see pictures and hear what everyone is doing in their "real" lives. I love it.
Rob finally got me a computer of my own, now I don't have to wait for him to let me have time on the computer. He is on his pretty much every waking minute of the day. So I am more than excited!
My new year's goals are going well. I have been keeping my hair done, in fact yesterday I had about 15 minutes after getting home from the gym to get showered, hair done and dressed before I had to head out to take Adam to therapy, and I did it!!!
As for the dates with my kids, so far I have been able to take Avalon out and Rob was able to take Adam out bowling. So two down, two to go.
Date nights?? Well I still need to find a regular babysitter so this will be more feasible. But I will get it accomplished.
Finances, well we have purchased quicken and I have been spending time getting all the bank accounts and bills put in so we can track the finances more closely. This is mainly for Rob. He is such a geek, he seems to have to have information on a computer screen to have it sink in!! lol
I have also been tracking every penny I spend. I got a little notebook from Target that has a really nice set up to track where you are spending and how much in different categories. It is by Jane Chatzky, and I really like it. There is a quote from her in the front, that says, "People who track their spending, spend less and save more." That is what I am looking to do. I have noticed that I am not so quick to go through a drive through or run to the grocery store because I know I have to write down what I spend there. Now if I could get Rob to do the same..... I know he wont! Any ideas you guys have that may help me on this?
Well the day has begun, and I have Adam down stairs playing Hungry, Hungry Hippos and making tons of noise, so I should get going here. Oh, well!
