I should be halfway around the world right now, dining on exotic delicacies.
Instead, I’m at home ordering mundane, yet much appreciated, delivery. Yes, that’s right. I had to cancel my trip. Thanks to COVID-19, I, and millions of other people aren’t going anywhere, any time soon. %$#%$#!!^%#. Sigh. %$@$^$!!^#$
In a miracle, I was able to get most of my money refunded. However, I lost at least $1,100 from non-refundable charges. 😦 Well, now I get to work more instead of taking a vacation. Yay me. (Not!) Read More
Howdy, folks! Welcome, 2020!
It’s been almost a month since my last post. I’ve been busy with work and the stuff of life.
So what have I been up to since the day I told debt to go pound sand?
I’ve been spending my take-home pay without a budget for a couple of months to feel normal again. This is temporary. I will go back on a spending plan again soon.

2019 In Review:
In the Winter, after declaring my 2019 goals, I started the new year by celebrating a student loan refinance, and continuing to cut my student loan debt down to the low thirties. I was also growing increasingly unsatisfied at work and worried about my job. In February, I complained about paying sky-high state and federal taxes, like I always do. By the end of the season, I had reached the twenties, the last stop on my time travel train.
