Hi! I can hardly believe its been so long since I last posted here! The last time I posted, I mentioned about the possibility of my having FINNAly found a job. Well .... I got it! Smile Smile For the first week I was an assistant supervisor/surveyor. Then the supervisor decided that she couldn't handle the job, and quit. SO, guess who got a promotion?? Smile Smile

I am so loving it. I get to sit in front of a computer all day, synching the data the surveyors bring in, helping problem solve various issues that come up, making schedules for the surveyors, etc. It looks like it is going to last till Dec 11, which is a couple more weeks than I was expecting, which is very good.

Lynn, the person whom I'm in contact with a lot at the employment agency, has pretty much assured me that I won't be lacking for another job when this project is over. Now whether that means a permenant job, or another temp job, who knows. But it does feel pretty good to know that I wont' have to be touching my savings again for a couple more months.

A couple weeks ago I graduated with my class from Pathways. Yay! No more spending there! Smile One thing I decided to focus on during my last weekend was to become a more healthy person. My first goal has been to make exercise a reflexive part of my life. So far, so good. I have been working out at least four times a week - using some previously owned video's, plus I purchased a book on beginner's Pilates as well as a DVD called "Easy Pilates." This is my fourth week in a row to have 4 workouts or more. I'm planning on reevaluating my progress and deciding whether I'm ready for my next goal, on December 10.

As far as money goes, I think I've been doing okay. I haven't been tracking like I should. I just find it very difficult when you never know exactly how much is going to be coming in each week. My second electric bill here really threw me for a loop - especially since I don't think the air was turned lower than 80 degrees, if it was even turned on at all -- $100!!!! I was used to more like $40 - $60. Hopefully it will be less this month.

Sunday night I took my cat to the vet because I he was having diffuclty with a bathroom action. It was an hour's ride to the vet (night clinic) and half-way there, he no longer had trouble with that action. I went ahead and took him to see the vet anyway because I was worried that there might have been something going on that caused it in the first place. Thankfully it turned out that he checked out just fine. Night Visit to vet = $88.67 ; Getting home at 2 a.m. = little sleep ;
Peace of mind about my cat's health = Priceless. Smile

Ok, I'm off now to watch disc one of S*x and the City -Season 5. Smile

Hope everyone is keeping warm. Smile

Keeping It Frugal in Texas,

Laura
