February was a great month, BUT…
We still have the squirrels. The gif to the left is how I feel whenever I’m laying in bed and I can hear them.
They are still living in our attic and they haven’t been interested in the pest company’s traps at all. Last week, we even saw a squirrel go all the way into the trap VERY SLOWLY and then he/she inched slowly back out.
It’s been over two weeks since they decided that they want to freeload off of us, and I’m really starting to get afraid that they will have babies in our attic since it’s almost that time for them.
Anyway, we had a lot of expenses come up in February, which kind of killed our budget. We had a lot of wedding expenses (I will have a whole post on our updated wedding expenses soon), I finally had my phone fixed (the screen cracked a few months ago, but my phone still worked so I wasn’t in a huge rush to get it fixed), we had to pay the pest company (even though I have no hope for their service now), and some other expenses came up. Was February a budget buster for you or were your expenses right on track?
Even though February was a bad month for our budget, February was a good month for business, and it seems to be flowing into March which is always good too.
Make sure to come back tomorrow for my monthly business/online income update. If you have any online income questions that you would like me to answer in tomorrow’s post, please leave a comment below and I will try to include it. Thanks!
I published my 2014 goals article earlier this year too. Read about them here if you are interested.
How did you do in February? What is your main goal for March?
How are you doing with your New Year’s Resolutions?
Hey everyone! I found the picture to the left the other day in a photo album.
My dad LOVED taking photos and I still remember when we would go to the store all the time to buy a new photo album for all of the pictures that he would get developed.
I didn’t really think about it when I was younger, but I’m so glad that he took the time to leave me all of these photo albums (our guest bedroom and living room are filled with albums – there are probably around 100 or more).
I found this picture of us on an airplane (flying planes was his other love) and I can’t stop looking at it. Love you and miss you always Dad!
Anyway, I hope everyone had a fun weekend. No, I did not watch the Super Bowl. I feel like I’m the only one who didn’t but I never watch it so that’s nothing new Today is also W’s birthday! Happy Birthday!
January was another great month. It started off slow business-wise, but the last two weeks were definitely good.
Now that it’s February, some of you might have already forgotten about your 2014 goals. Many people drop their goals within the first month. However, don’t be one of those people!
How did you do in January? What is your main goal for February?
What tips do you have to keep your goals?
Hey everyone! I hope all of you had a great weekend and New Year’s. St. Louis is currently being hit by horribly cold weather – today it’s supposed to be negative 35 degrees with windchill). There’s also a foot of snow outside.
Today’s post will be all about my goals from last month and my new goals for this month as well as all of 2014. Make sure to come back tomorrow for my monthly income update.
December was another great month. I took an official two week semi-vacation (I worked some, but not anywhere near usual), which was nice.
We went on a week-long trip to St. Thomas. Then around one week after we got back I came down with the stomach flu, which was no fun at all. So, I am ready to get back into the hang of everything in January.
2013 was a really great year. I left my day job and switched to full-time freelancing, which has been really good for me/us so far. Just last January, I’m not even sure if I thought about leaving my job, so that can really show you how much changed in just 2013.
Last year, we also did a good amount of traveling. We went to New Orleans, Chicago, Gulf Shores, St. Thomas (twice), and a few other places.
I do think that 2014 will be our year though. Sadly, our semi-long trip to Asia will be put on hold for the time being, but we do hope to do that someday soon. We just can’t find the time to squeeze it in.
Instead, we will be traveling to either the Caribbean or Central America later this month, and then we plan on renting a beach house somewhere in February or March for a few weeks. So, I’m definitely not complaining in the change.
In May, I will also be going to Vegas for my bachelorette party, and then we still have our honeymoon to plan as well for June. The next 6 months will definitely be crazy for us!
Here are my goals that I posted in January of 2013 for my annual goals. I didn’t have many, but I still feel like it was a successful year!
